So the test page for “HEAVIKROME” (formerly known as Heavy Chrome) has been delayed due to a change up in art style direction. I’m researching the new style and would like to redo the page I started. So, in the interim, I drew up the first page for “Rusted” instead.
Rusted is a reinterpretation of an old video game property that my now-defunct game company was developing. The theme centered around the idea that a group of old, rusty robots was fighting against a slew of new, shiny warbots. It was a cute cartoony tale. But over the past few years, the idea “grew up” in my head, and I’ve spent the past few months reworking some basic ideas. Rusted is the result.
Once again, comments are welcome and appreciated. I’m looking for comments regarding the visual style primarily (yes, the rough sketchy style is wholly intentional); these can include the figures, the coloring, even the lettering choice. Also, comments on the actual portrayed story (well, the snippet of story) are welcome. Does this page make you want to read more?

UPDATE 07/15/09 12:30am: I’ve adjusted the font of the page for easier readability. Comments on new font choice appreciated.
