Hey guys and gals!
You might have noticed that I’ve been strangely absent from the internet, sans my weekly Despondent Mega Man updates. I can list several reasons for this (Dragons Dogma, for one) but what matters is that I’m back with some news!
Firstly, an update on Rock Vs. Robo: I have the thumbnails (mostly) finished, but progress has slowed of late. I’ve been increasing production quality on Despondent Mega Man (more backgrounds, better word balloon placement, etc) so there has been little time for side projects. I’ll be posting regular updates on RvR’s progress once I’ve settled into a groove.
Now for the big news: I’m developing a Despondent Mega Man story arc! Each comic so far has been its own stand-alone gag, but this new story will run for several weeks, and sees our hero in some crazy new situations. I’m not sure yet when this arc will begin, but expect it for sure in the next few weeks!
What will this arc consist of, you ask? You’ll just have to wait and see!
As always, come back Tuesday for more despondency!
Hey guys and gals:
Just wanted to let you know that the newest Despondent Mega Man is done already! In keeping with my new schedule, I’ll have it up this Tuesday (July 3rd).
In the meantime, I’m still working on Rock Vs. Robo, and I’ll update again once I have something more substantial to share!
A while back I mentioned that I had a special project in the works. Well, I’m ready to reveal it!
The tentative title is “Rock Vs. Robo.” It’s a twelve page comic where Mega Man and Robo (from Chrono Trigger) duke it out in a all out battle royale! “How and why are they fighting,” you ask? Well, my friends, you’ll have to just wait and see!
It’s going to be a black and white piece, where I will be experimenting with manga screen tones and such to make it more dynamic. Below is a picture of the notebook where I’ve been writing my thumbnails out, just to prove that this project is already underway:
Here is said notebook on top of my giant tablet.
I’m a HUGE Chrono Trigger fan, and I’m really excited to kick this project into high gear. So far the feedback I’ve received has been very positive, so I think you’ll all enjoy it!
Right now I don’t have an exact time frame for when “Rock Vs. Robo” will be finished and available (nor do I know what form it will take), but I will keep you all posted with updates on its progress!
Here it is, everyone, robot of the day number eight: Robo from Chrono Trigger!
This marks the first ROTD that was inked digitally. It took longer than I thought it would (hence the delay) but I’m very happy with the results. What I did was draw the image with good old paper and pencil, then I scanned the drawing and used Photoshop to “ink” on a separate layer. It’s like using a light box to trace, but extra fancy. Here is the pencil drawing before I started inking it:
Chrono Trigger was my favorite video game as a kid, and it’s still one of my top favorite games of all time. Robo was a great character, and a more than worthy entry into my ROTD series.
On a related note, CT is now available on the Wii’s Virtual Console. Please spend the points and get yourself an awesome game from a simpler time in digital entertainment! You won’t be disappointed!
