Artslam 76

This poster was done as an entry for a contest, where we had to draw our comic (or idea for a comic) as either an advertisement, or the first volume cover. I made this poster to emulate the double-spread "style" of an article that would appear in magazines such as Newtype or Animage.

A version of this image without the text will soon be available on the main site as a wallpaper!

Artslam 68-73

Tora and Mac exploring the Tiger Temple. I won't spoil anything just yet. ;)

I've had the idea for a while now, but since watching Avatar: The Last Airbender, I've been more inspired to flesh out the elements for this arc of the story more.

Two sketches which spawned while watching TLA... Tora = firebender. :P

Practice sketches for Russel, Nezumi's guardian. Also a failed sketch of a motorcycle.

These are drafts for chapter 10. I didn't actually write it out in script form, unlike the other chapters, but instead let the story come to me as it did.

Here's the first three pages:

And this is the conclusion:

There are still pages in the middle that are missing, so I'll have to work on that now.


Chapter 5 drafts, continued from:

Fata Morgana (Artslam 50)

Fata Morgana is an unusual type of mirage, and it can distort things to be almost unrecognisable. It is constantly changing, and is mostly determined by factors in the air. Because Tatsu can control the wind, he can manipulate the air to make it appear like he is in many places at once.

Artslam 41-47

Concept of Brave!Tora with a sword, which I scrapped shortly after. I didn't design him with a weapon in mind, so drawing him with one just felt unnatural.

Digital painting practice.
