Chapter 1 Page 2

As promised….

page 2 of Chapter 1 in full color!

You may also notice I am using a different font. I think it’s much more readable. As I update, you might notice some text and dialog differences as well. I want to update a little bit, just because I’ve learned so much since the beginning I think I can make it a little more natural.

Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

Extra Friday Updates

If you haven’t seen, I’m updating Chapter 1 every Friday.

It’s always bothered me that it was the only chapter in black and white.

I’ve also learned so much since then, so it only makes sense in the eve of finishing all of book 1, that I would update the beginning. So make sure to stop back by Friday for the first 2 pages colored!

Chapter 1 in Color

One of the things that has always troubled me with Hominids,
is that Chapter 1 was never in color like the rest of the book. In fact,
I’ve learned so much since then, that much of it is worth redoing.

As a way of getting Chapter 1 at the same quality of the rest of the book, I will be posting a different page each Friday¬†in full color! Not only that, I’m updating the text, fixing word balloons, and changing some of the font to be more legible.

So go check out page 1 and come back next week for page 2!

Greetings Hominerds,

As I am working on my buffer, I am getting really excited at the event about to unfold.

If you have been wondering where Icari’s father, Eetori was, now you know. Even though Icari have been welcomed with open arms, he knows nothing about weapons and war.¬†Perhaps Eetori doesn’t yet trust him enough to have told him about his new invention. At any rate, Icari has not factored this weapon into his escape plan.

In Comicon news, I was at Jet City Comic Show in Tacoma this last weekend. It’s a pretty small show but it was a lot of fun and met some great people. Most notably I met a couple fellow webcomicers. The first was a a guy named Kasey Quevedo,who is the creator of a comic called Velocidad. Second was Gilby Lawson, a writer working on several comics, one called Charlatan and one called Stray. Both were really nice guys and I look forward to reading their comics. So go check’em out.

On a last note, for those of you who didn’t see my latest post, I wanted to share the art piece I submitted to the newest Monsters and Dames book. This is an exclusive book only sold at Emerald City Comicon.

Monsters and Dames

Each year, Emerald City Comicon does a book called Monsters and Dames.

I thought I would share with you all the Hominids piece that I am submitting. Wish me luck!

Chapter 6, Part 1

Hey Hominerds,

You may have noticed the little “End of part 1″.

Chapter 6 is turning out to be quite epic. Not just in the story but also in the length. I looked at the way it breaks down and it just so turns out page 22 (the length of a single comic issue) was the perfect cliffhanger moment. In this case, figuratively and literally.
This means I’m going to take a short break. Only two Tuesdays and then I’ll be back with part 2 of Chapter 6. This is going to give me time to build my page buffer back up, as well as some other very important tasks that will hopefully bring more readers to the comic.
So it’s a bit of a wait, but I promise you, the second I’m back it’s nothing but the climax of book 1 and it’s going to be non-stop intensity to the very end.

Hey Hominerds,

Things are ramping up!

So next week will be 22 pages of Chapter 6. That’s a full issue! Of course, chapter 6 is double that size. So in the interest of getting myself caught up and putting a few other things together, I am going to break chapter 6 up into 2 parts. All this really means is that after next week I am taking one week off. This will allow me to catch up on my buffer, prepare for a Patreon account, and color the rest of chapter 1. There is so much to do and so little time.

This is all after next weeks page though so fear not my friends. While you wait, now might be a good time to have you follow my Instagram, Tumblr, or Twitter account if you aren’t already. I’ve been posting art there everyday so it’s worth checking out.
