Final Flashback

Hey Hominerds!
I’m on vacation for the next two weeks.
Fortunately I front loaded my work so you won’t miss an update. Three pages in one week was a bit daunting but it was worth it. I can’t let down my faithful readers!
This week is the final flashback of Zona and Otari’s story. A tough one to tell. Once lovers will now be the greatest adversaries of the series.
Next week, back to full color! You might want to ask the question, why is Otari telling Icari all of this? That would be a wise question to ask.

Sketch

Hey everyone,
I thought I would share this sketch I did the other day.
I was experimenting with different kinds of hair as well as trying to be more bold with my shading. I was really happy with this one. Maybe this character will show up somewhere in the future.

I just got back from a trip to Denver.

There was a part of me that didn’t think I’d get this page in on time.

After all, I didn’t start coloring until about 9 at night. To give context, I usually start coloring on Sunday and finish it out on Monday before releasing. The process is getting faster and more efficient. Would any of you like to see some process YouTube videos in the future?

As always, please share this comic with friends, fellow comic geeks and social media in whatever capacity you see fit.

Until next time Hominerds!

And this is the page where a villain is created.

Where Otari becomes the High Priest we know now.

The question will be, how far has he gone down and can he ever recover? Also, some of Zona’s motives might get pulled into question after these events. More on that later though.

As always, please share this comic with friends, fellow comic geeks and social media in whatever capacity you see fit.

Until next time Hominerds!

A new flashback page is up. This is the beginning of the end of this little side story.

These events have been talked about and mentioned on several occasions throughout the series and we finally get to see what happened.

Please remember to share this comic with friends, comic lovers, and social media. Things are really building up in the story and I don’t want people to miss it.

Until next time my fellow Hominerds!

I’m not gonna lie.
Torture isn’t fun to draw.

I don’t think I’m going to do it again. At least not in this comic.

So you might be getting some hints as to why Otari isn’t the nicest person in the world anymore. The question is, why is he telling Icari all this. He is really putting it all out there. Some people have speculated that it might be lies to indoctrinate Icari, but this is him truly opening up. So hopefully you’re wondering about his motivations.

I’m sure you are also wondering why in the world I’d be so harsh as to castrate the guy?!? I almost didn’t but referencing back to chapter 3, that was a real fear of Icari’s. Now you know he wasn’t just being hyperbolic, this is something they really do a punishment. These are a harsh people.

As always, the best way for readership to grow is to please share this comic with friends, blogs, forums, and geeks of all shapes and sizes!

From one jerk to a whole bunch!

This might give us a little incite to Otari and why he is so nasty in the present setting.

It’s not the most fun drawing and writing a torture scene so fear not, it wont last that long. However, in the next several pages expect to get quite a bit of flashback as wrap up young Zona and young Otari’s story.

Also wanted to call out a big thank you to Vatbrain for helping me edit my dialog. I don’t want to call him out by name cause I’m not sure if he’d be cool with that. It’s been a huge help and hopefully there will be far less grammatical errors…..in the comic. I can’t promise it in my blog posts.

As always, please share with friends and future Hominerds and leave a comment. Let me know what you think.
