A Quick Concept Sketch Of A Dark Acolyte

October 31, 2015

Digital Art

Here’s a quick concept sketch of one of the Dark Acolytes from my digital comic. Done in Gimp. He’s shaven headed except for that pony tail. He’s wearing a long leather coat. He’s got a big ‘M’ tattooed onto his face.

Project ADC-1: 09 October 2015

October 8, 2015

Comics

After pondering my priorities for this project, I have moved the goal posts on myself and decided that no-longer will Timescales be the over-riding priority. Instead Quality will be the over-riding priority. The reason is that I am enjoying the journey as much as the thought of the end-goal so I want to continue to take the time to explore…

Dark Temple Concept Art V1

October 6, 2015

Digital Art

Here is a concept picture of The Dark Temple Of Mymosule from my upcoming digital comic. In Manga Studio, I imported the planetary rings render I did from Blender and added a bunch of digitally painted layers: A cloud layer. A background mountains layer. A layer for the Dark Temple Of Mymosule. A mid-ground mist layer. A foreground cliff layer….

Making Planetary Rings In Blender Experiment 4

October 3, 2015

Digital Art

After studying some reference photos, I played about with the planetary ring texture a little more in Blender. Also, the sun is now shining from the lower left and has a bit of a red tinge to suggest a sunset. I then scaled the whole model up by roughly a factor of ten because I will then locate a camera on the planet surface…

Making Planetary Rings In Blender Experiment 3

September 30, 2015

Digital Art

OK so I decided to use the colour ramp method from Experiment 2 and put together a simple scene with a marble textured planet. The rings are actually made from a single disc, it’s the colour ramp texture that makes it appear as multiple rings.  Colour ramps allow you to specify transparent areas so I’ve just got a single ring…

Making Planetary Rings In Blender Experiment 2

September 28, 2015

Digital Art

Continuing from my Blender planetary ring experiments with the Wood texture type yesterday, I thought I’d try out the Blend texture type. I created a ring mesh by extrude-scaling a circle. It took me ages to understand the different Blend texture parameters but I’ve found the following settings yield good ring-like patterns: Progression = Spherical Mapping – Coordinates = Object (choose…

Making Planetary Rings In Blender Experiment 1

September 27, 2015

Digital Art

I’m working on an environmental picture of the Dark Temple Of Mymosule.  It will be dusk and the planetary rings of Undomea are to be visible in the sky. I’ve decided that I cannot draw the perfect arcs of the planetary rings by hand so I’m breaking out the heavy machinery: 3D modelling in Blender. Firstly I created a sphere with a ring…

My digital comic project went off the rails a bit over the last 2 weeks when I decided to re-write the plot.  It didn’t reveal enough about Benevolen’s stealth abilities. Now it does. I’m starting do reconsider my over-riding prioritisation of timescales.  Quality is starting to matter more to me than getting this done quick. Hmmm meditate upon this I…

Project ADC-1 Comic Book Script V2

September 21, 2015

Comics, Writing

I’m satisfied enough with the high level plot now so I have translated it into a comic book script. Hopefully this time around I’ve avoided putting in any “moving panels” (comic book panels should be static snapshots in time). Page 1 Panel 1: It is dusk.  The planetary rings are visible in the purple cloud-streaked sky.  Captain Sylen Benevolen is…
