Lazy?! update(mar 18th)
Since this is a random topic thread already, Ill throw this one in here as well... a few years ago two friends of mine&me decided to make a comic. so, while sitting around in my old pad drinkin wine & playing nintendo 64....we came up with Dante (k, the name isnt that original), who basically is a sort of Tintin, design wise, only 20 years older and with a crow that had its eyes sewn shut (and whos name is Merlot...whatever), instead of a dog. basically he's a package delivery "boy" in a post apocalyptic future (also not brilliantly original)....who by accident causes some ruckus!!! this comic turned out to be 72 pages long, and without a publisher or anyone who even read it....so a couple of days ago I had some time and decided it needs chapter illustrations (there is 3 chapters, each 24 pages).....so here it is chapter2....eventually 1 & 3 will be done.....blah
and here some pages of the comic...we made mistakes, but it was a graet learning experience. I wouldnt miss it....especially coz of the fun we had!
heres how it goes; Daniel Stieglitz/story, pencils.......Michael Meier/story, colors, lettering........me/story, finishes, inks
page 1 page 33 page 40 page 41 page 44 page 45 page 51
heres some stuph, just to prove (mainly to myself ) that I havent been too lazy. Just some random things I guess....
This one was suppose to be for my folio, but I lost it somewhere in the process of painting....its over rendered, undynamic, and theres lots of things wrong with it...I dont think I'll finish it...hmm...wha-eva.

hey, nicholas.. these are great man!!! I really like that boy in the mask.. great character.. And that last one is awesome.. I could see how you wanted to go somewhere else with it but, it has somereally great feautres... I really like the way you rendered the right arm that muscle structure looks nice and the skull thats hanging by it also... The metal on the other arm looks great.. To bad you wont finish it anyways!

Oh, that's a good thing of course.

Not only did I enjoy these recent works, but I strapped on the chin-drool-cup and perused your website with overflowing results. Kick A.

That is some very nice stuff you have here nicolas
I also checked out your site and loved your work even more. Your comic is so stylish and beautiful...which I tried to order, but I dont understand the language of the site so i couldn't
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."

thank you gals.
@vigostar - thx dude, yeah, theres parts of the warrior that I like as well, but its way overdone, and sorta lost its freshness...maybe one day Ill go back into it
@csteingart - thx!
@Matt Dixon - thx dude, nice to hear from ya!
@sevencrows - thx, actually I think it lost some realism in the overworked parts, I always feel when the painterly work is more dynamic/alive it adds to the realism....
@duddlebug - thank you....Im glad you wrote this, I was trying to get some different characterization going on with these.
@Ancient Kitten - heh, a toy?! Id buy it, even if I didnt do it....
@Jack Frost - merci. glad you like.
@thx. I dont think the last one is complete shite, but theres just too many things that bother me....
@redehlert - lol, thanx dood. cheers.
@I.was.ink - thanx ink. I dont know which comic you tried ordering, but some stories will come out as a collected album (I dont know the exact date, because I have yet to finish the last ones), but Ill keep you posted on that
