Keeping in mind that I will upload my own rendition of a 'glitterboy' from the Rifts (by Palladium) role playing game... I continued doing mock-ups and generating ideas for a Wind Claw comic (my third attempt documented here at NG).

This comic will not be uploaded in full to this thread... that would get zanny and it would be hard to read. Needless to say I will upload progress pages and wotnot to this thread.

Enjoy the image!

I gotta say, I actually don't like this one. The image is busy/cluttered (I think the big heads are a little too big and too close to the main char who should be the focal point) Also the perspective makes him look blocky/stumpy. And I can't put my finger on it, but something about his face seems off. I applaud you for the attempt though. Very few artists (even pros) can pull off covers like this. I never liked this style cover. And of course it's still far exceeds anything I can do.

I think it's Arthur's nose that is bothering you... it's angled too low now that I look at it again. Tomorrow I'll upload another one with a fixed nose and a pair of scaled heads... but that's tomorrow. That was around 4 hrs of work right thar.

Now that you mention it. Yes it's the nose.

Well... what was going to be, "Ah, do a penciling of a page and then work on the cover again!" turned into, "Must... complete... penciling..." ... and it's still not complete. Grah...

That's what I get for doing a city scape.

The final result is quite a good one, though. If anything, the amount of detail in that one panel sort of puts the rest to shame; you've got to remember to keep quality and detail somewhat consistent throughout the page, at least, so it works in your favour more often then not.

Nice thread, man! If there's anything to say is that the circular heads you consistently draw kind of bother me.

Ah yes, the circular heads. Probably the worst bad habbit I've developed out of everything. I'm glad you liked the city scape!

Ahh this is awesome, the only thing that bugs me is the baby, for some reason he looks more developed than a actual baby, it might be the nose or the eyes maybe both. Or maybe nothing at all it is confusing me!

Yo, still alive and kicking. I just haven't been working as hard as I should to find time to draw... but I'm getting back into it.

If the page seems a little confusing it's because I started in the middle of the transcript, and the page before this one would help set the context better.

Just know that this guy is being grabbed by a strange object and altered by it.

OH SNAP!! Not a day, I'm sorry.... i meant a week. It certainly feels like I'm doing 5 a day (not in terms of progress but more tedious work load).

I fully agree! I've been tampering with the panels in some of the earlier pages. For now I think I'll upload the official 'page 1' of the story.

Here is a sample of the 1st panel of page 2 in progress. Once this page is done, that will be the 10th completed page... 20 more for the 1st issue... 90 more for the whole story arch.
