Delayed Comic Excuses: Parts 12-14
Webcomic Veers Into Unexpected Direction

New production art from the new book promises more deranged adventures in the Insect Kingdom.

The story for the next book is a new direction for the webcomic. Instead of the gag/page-a-week format I've moved into a fantasy approach for the art and a more traditional approach to story. This arc turns the Roach kingdom upside down. It reveals intrigues and introduces fascinating new characters.

This book has been penciled. I'm in the process of cleaning it up and digitally inking now. Colors for the book seem to need more attention. The flat and slightly shaded style used in book one is now a thing of the past. The early results for book two look very good.

The thing about roaches is that they are next to impossible to kill.

My recent work in other areas (Graphic/Web Design) and other titles (Puppets/War Cry) has kept me really busy. The techniques developed from working on other projects are getting applied to my first title, Roaches.

For example, it's not a problem to design a template for comic cards and then render the art. That was not exactly the case when the webcomic got started back in star date 20XX. Then, as a mild mannered web designer by day, it was strictly HTML - which is kind of a code related joke and comic artist by night.

Now, I can see some of the carefully honed elements from the books that I love (GoT/Mouse Guard) as they start showing up, gradually, in this title. For me to take a "one-off" webcomic and push it towards a fully rendered card set is an important milestone over here, already.

If you aren't subscribed to this blog and buying the books - you are making a huge mistake. Luckily you can make up for it. Buy some merch. Help an artist to continue making one-of-a-kind work.
