Our IOS game Rocket Runner will be out in a few months and alone with the game launch there will be a comic book. This pic is what the style of the comic will look like. Jarma Queed is the heros name, and he’s blasting some space punk as he foolishly leap-attacks him…while he’s in a cave…surrounded by lava…
Howdy! Been sketching away lately, having found new energy since I’ve shifted my attention to another comic and this Comic Collab Check it out here project I’ve been working on with two very talented college friends.
Only thing is, this new comic is a comedy adventure and the style I’ve adopted as of late seems ill-fitting to that genre. When I drew this comic in the past, it was way more goofy and fit the tone of comedy I was going for. As I look at my recent sketches, I’m not sure I’ve gotten the style for this down. Although, I did want to introduce an element of a serious edge to it, only because with straight-out goofball comics, it’s a bit difficult to get the reader to invest in the characters . But, these are just sketches, so no harm done.
This here is Gallop L’Gar Palesman, an old rough and tumble lad from the Northlands. He is part of Stanley’s freelance adventurer group. He wears his ancestors spiritually alive skull as a belt buckle. Sometimes great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, granddad will pipe in unannounced with some tidbit of wisdom now and again.
I am reviving an old comic that I started long ago. I had to put my other comic I was doing (Stomz) on the back burner because I was starting to burn myself out on it, and I figured drawing something else for a little while would be a welcome remedy. So far, not only am I certain it was the right decision, but I am really happy to see this old line of beloved characters coming back to life. I’ve really missed them and I am really excited to be drawing them again.
The comic is a fantasy/comedy adventure called Stanley the Mole which follows the exploits of a band of freelance adventurers lead by a large, muscular barbarian dog named Stanley. Stanley however, was abandoned by his parents at a young age and raised by a family of moles, so he considers himself 100% mole.
Well, this particular character sketch is not of Stanley, but one of his cohorts. A man named Vallister. He hails from a Nordic-like tribe of nomadic people in the north. He is extremely good at olde time engineering, hence the foot and a half long retractable blades on either forearm.
