Hey guys! I hope you can find the time to take a look at my original comic series I've been working on. Its drawn in an anime-style, but since it's in English the reading order is from Left to Right.

Here's some "promo" art for it:

I haven't written a synopsis yet because I haven't finished the first volume, and the synopsis would include a big spoiler that is coming up XD

Essentially it is a story in an age of asteroid mining during a time of scare resources and perpetual war on Earth. The main characters you first meet, Mario and Josh, are heirs to weapons dev companies and have their own set of problems. I... can't tell you too much more because um, please read it! :D

Here's the first two pages: 5615056151

I could post more but this post is already image-heavy and I don't wanna annoy people XD I am grateful if you guys could take a look. There's 50 pages so far and its my first comic I've tried to make with completely original characters, as opposed to my gaming comics and FFVII Aeriseph lovey-dovey mush comic.

This looks pretty cool at a glance. I'll have to remember to check it out when I have some more time!

Holy crap! Wanna collaborate someday? I love these kinda if stories, but I can't draw well enough to do something like this :shobon: I do write a lot, though, and I can do some basic character designs, and your stuff looks great and I really wanted to do a comic with someone, someday! :exdee:

Thanks Scotty! I appreciate any time you spend looking at my comic! I forgot to mention that the comic will always be free to read online.

White Wizard, I am glad you like my art. Thank you for taking the time to look at the comic! Right now I am swamped with projects so I don't plan on adding more to my plate. Did you draw your signature art? It looks great! Don't sell yourself short on your drawing skills. Everyone starts from somewhere and they can improve every day! It just takes tons of work and dedication.

Thanks guys and continue to let me know what you think!

05-29-2014, 07:39 PM
Haha! I wish :p That is official art, but still, thanks. I love my sig.

I'll be sure to check back and give some more feedback once I've found the time to read it all! Just keep doing what you're doing because it looks awesome ;)

Aw thanks! When I get more free time, I hope I can help you out with your comic! Where is your blog so that I can read your stuff?

Moar art! Click link for the hi-res version if it's not loading right (I am bad at this forum post thing sometimes XD)


Here are my characters Josh, Mario, Liam, and Helen (from left to right) in a simulation in the VR room on the Lone Star Space Station. This scene hasn't happened yet in the comic, but I wanted to draw it for more "promo art." :D

I hope you enjoy it!

I'm loving your character design. I'm a few pages behind so I'll have to catch up! So good though!

I like the new pictures! And this reminds me that I still need to read what you have of the comic.

Hey guys! It's been a while but I've made a few new pieces for my Lone Star online comic and wanted to share them with you. Click the links for the bigger (better) version :D

Reading in Joshua's Room

Helen vs. Joshua at the Blackstone Estate

Joshua makes his feelings known

As you can see, I like drawing castles and posh stuff and cozy rooms and fancy things. XD Thank you for taking a look.

Said it before, will say it again: I love how your artwork is so much more than just good quality art. The moments you create in the art are special ones, so different to the portraits of characters we so often see in art. Well done.

That polo at Blackstone image is just amazing. I love it.

12-11-2014, 08:14 PM
Good god, this is gorgeous. Seconding the polo appreciation.

Now that deviant art has an actual app, i'll try to follow this more closely. Seeing as I don't create much art on my own anymore I don't visit as much as I should. Now that it's an app, I have no excuse since I can see it from anywhere (with cell service of course)

Thank you for taking the time to look, guys. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in this project that I feel like I lose objectivity or even think I miss the point of my illustrations - to tell a story. Hearing your comments helps me keep it in perspective. I'm working on more pages this Christmas break and hope to release them in the New Year or sooner!
