See? What do I keep saying. Everyone was born in the middle of the year!

This card goes out to a dear member of my World of Warcraft guild whose character is known as Shizukera Nightfury. She purrs. She’s a demon hunter. She’s … a purring demon hunter.

I should have probably drawn her purring at the tank, come to think of it… crap. Oh well, there’s always next year! Happy birthday, Shizu!

(By the way, she can be found on Twitter as @Shizukera.)

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.

What did I tell ya? Birthday central, I say! Today is the birthday of a close local friend of mine, Maria Clark, a.k.a. Lannia Winterstorm in World of Warcraft and @Arcania on Twitter.

I hope today goes well for you. May you have a happy birthday today and many more to come. Uhm… although you may wish to keep that priest bubble handy around Lokker. He can, indeed, be … dangerous.

The second comic test page, which should hopefully be up sometime next week, will be called “Heavy Chrome” (working title). This is the my concept art for the primary character’s combat mecha, the Hawk Engineering / Advanced Vehicle Industries (HEAVI) Unit 01. Code-named “Chrome.”

The purpose was to achieve a balance between old school superhero mecha anime like Voltron, Mazinger Z, and Big O and modern-style futuristic mecha.

Comments and critiques regarding whether I achieved this balance are more than welcome. Thanks in advance.

It seems like we’re in the middle of birthday central, doesn’t it? Well, today I wish to honor another; this time it’s the birthday of a Twitter friend known as @omgitsafox (that’s just the Twitter username, folks). Happy Birthday! May you have many more to come and may they all be joyous!

This card features good ol’ Yoggy, the plushie Old God of MADNESS AND INSANITY. And apparently a Yoggy cake as well… Gotta wonder how those Faceless Ones learned how to bake, don’t ya?

Hopefully “his fwibbliness” won’t mind me using his visage. Or putting words in his mouth(s). Also, apologies for the bad framing, but plush Old Gods are just too short to actually stay in frame…
