    Nice work! Went over to the website to see more. Really enjoyed reading it. I love the facial expressions on page 8.

    Would love to see another update!

    Thanks for the kind comments, Whisper_wm. The website updates at a rate of one page per week. That's about as fast as I can produce the artwork. Right now, I'm still spending a lot of extra hours settling on a style that I like. I'm really straddling the fence between traditional brush and ink and digital techniques, and sometimes I swing more into one camp than the other.

    Page 13. Brush and ink, Photoshop. 3D studio Max. It's showing a computer overlaying the schematics of a spaceship over an image of the real one in real-time.

    The eyeless thing keeps getting me, everytime. I guess it's right (?) but it looks so wrong (!). Haha. Nice work man. LOVE the sci-fi stuff.

    Here's an article I found a while ago by a guy with some decent skill interested in Corben's (corbin's?) work. I can't really catch sarcasm on the internet, but I'm pretty sure it gets pretty silly towards the end.

    Yeah, I read Matthias Snygg's blog about Corben a while ago. It's pretty hilarious. He keeps swinging back and forth between awe and contempt.
    "The Guard" doesn't have any humans in the story, only mutated humanoid species. So, it's fun to create distortions on the basic visual cues that define humanity, and see how far I can take them but still remain within the bounds of credibility.

    Your style is strangely unique and fresh, I'm quite fascinated by it! It must be the differences in rendering/detail of some elements in relation to others e.g. the spaceships vs the main character in page 2. That kind of creates a dissonance but it definitely works! I love the energy and gesture in the characters as well. I'd love to see more of this. Keep it up!

    Thanks for the comment. I'm glad to hear the style isn't too incoherent. I was worried about combining major 3D entities and hand-drawn stuff. I think that the combining approach is OK when the hand drawn elements are rendered photorealistically, but it can start to fall apart if the hand drawn style becomes too gestural. I'm still fine-tuning the style for this comic. Rendering eveything photrealistically is the closest to my vision, but it's very time-consuming. I will probably end up evolving to a more traditional line-based style due to time and schedule constraints.
