ZX page 40: Energetic Disassembly



This one took a long time. I am considering it colored for the cover too, don't know. Perhaps something else might come to me after I'm done with the comic proper.

Also a new thing I did this time I let the pencils show underneath the inks, I almost never do this as I consider it sloppy but I wanted a few more rough edges here and there on this piece, and the extra rendering level really. I tried to keep the pencils relatively tight just for this reason which increased the workload. It was a full-time week for me, an artist that isn't even paid to do this. Oh well, you're only 25 and living in the good graces of your father once, right?



Which reminds me, I won't be 25 for long, heh. Oh well, good spirits, now. Like every time I finish a page. But will this making comics thing work out at the end? I don't know!

This chapter is the last one, by the way.

I'm waiting eagerly to see the conclusion Helm...I like where the illustration leads, maybe compliment it with some character faces for the cover?

Now that's what I call detail. I like the symbolism as well.

You know for some reason this robot guy of yours always has me thinking of Nicola Tesla. Can't quite put my finger on why, though.

ZX looking very nice here but it somehow took ages for me to notice that little bird cage in his "chest".

That's good I don't like to spell things out :)

Helm, Absolutely loving your use of varied shading techniques... by changing the patterns and styles on the textures, you really added a lot of depth and personality to what would normally make the robot look boring and shapeless. Your ability to make the bland beautiful inspires me.

looking forward to 9.

Shawn, thank you very much, that's a very nice thing to say.

It's going to be funny but after this comic I'm going to make a videogame. Then another comic. Whatever will I do with this blog, haha

A video game! Will you post stuff about it here then?

Helm said...

Probably, yes.

It's an amazing spread, Helm. Really good work!

Thank you very much, Lackey.
