In much less sad news, there are some developments in my Patreon account.
It will be going live soon so keep an eye out for it. Here is a preview image from the accompanying video.
It’s going to be amazing!!!!
I’ve had a lot of fun working on these last few pages.
The Giants are such a joy to draw.
Here is some early concept art of the Giants.
Second, if you haven’t already, check out this great podcast I did this last Friday with the guys over at Inter-Comics Podcast. I had a great conversation with Jack about Hominids, the new Daredevil season, the upcoming X-Men movie and a bunch of comics!
Not only that, Hominids received a great review over at Adam-P-Reviews. Go Give it a read and let me know what you think.
Last but not least, look at this amazing Keyli drawing by my friend Karin Madan! Yes, that is drawn on a tortilla! She’s amazing! Follow her.
We return to our main story! Will the Pack survive the onslaught of arrows? Will Icari survive his wounds? Will we ever meet the Giants? Will Jordan ever get the comments section back up and running?
So much mystery! The answers begin next week! Don’t miss out.
I am really sorry about the comments. I’m doing what I can….
Figured it would take Sno to catch that pesky monkey!
In other news, I received word that Hominids was finally approved to be on Comixology! I’m not sure when it will be up just yet, but I’ll make sure everyone know when it is.
Until next week Hominerds!
Look at these amazingly adorable, wonderful Hominids sketches from my friend Karin Madan. This is just a taste of what she can do. Make sure to follow her Facebook page as she does some of the cutest illustrations and makes her own plushy dolls.
Chapter 7 is finally here! Thanks for everyone’s patience.
In part, the long wait was due to the need for a break. 6 chapters is basically the equivalent of a full graphic novel and after getting through that, I just needed the time off. I also needed time to get a bit more organized on things like printing, writing the next book and getting a Patreon account together. The Patreon, I hope will be coming very soon so keep a look out for that.
Even though it’s been such a long break, I’ve still been keeping myself busy. The biggest of which was making the below animation. If you haven’t checked it out yet, take a look. I think it’s pretty cool.
I also got a lot of great Hominids art from some great artists who I hope you check out.
This is an amazing Lye pin-up by Al Fukalek, artist of The Specialist.
My apologies if you want to make a comment. It seems it’s not working on the chapter 7 page. I’m working to get that fixed but I’m not exactly sure what’s going on yet. If you want to leave a comment, feel free to do it on chapter 6, Twitter, or Facebook page.
As you can see, I’ve been hard at work preparing something special for you. It’s been a dream of mine to bring Hominids to life in one way or another even if it’s only for 30 seconds. I felt that announcing Book 2 would be the perfect place to do so!
So save the date! Hominids returns January 5th along with yet even more surprises! So help spread the word Hominerds and share with everyone you know.
While working away on Book 1, I received a lovely email from a student at Savannah College of Art and Design. Her instructor, Kit Seaton went to school with me and several months ago she reached out to me asking if I would help her with her Digital Coloring and Lettering. So I sent her some of my ink pages to see what her students came up with. This artist, Higuamota F sent me these lovely colored pages! She told me that she wanted to stay away from seeing any of my color work before starting these so her colors wouldn’t be influenced. It’s really fun for me to see your work through someone else’s eyes. Check it out below and make sure to visit her Tumblr page.
I figured it’s high time I sent you all an update.
First, let just say how excited I am to share this amazing Lye pin-up by Al Fukalek, artist of The Specialist. I met met Al and The Specialists writer, Shawn Gustafson at Denver Comic Con. They’re great guys and I was happy to hear they were fans of Hominids. I also did a pin-up for them and will share that with you all as soon as they make it public. They have some exciting things coming so make sure you follow these guys and show your support.
As for progress on Hominids, Chapter 7, I must admit its been slow. After 6 chapters and nearly 200 pages I needed a small break. That, mixed with several other things I want to do along with the release of Chapter 7 has slowed things down considerably. I did take this week to re-center and get myself back on track. So stay tuned for more updates in the near future.
Vote for Hominids over at Top Webcomics and see the pencils for page 1 of Chapter 7! I’m hard at work and for this chapter I’m doing all my pencils traditionally. My hope is that the quality bar goes even higher. SOGO VOTE!
I thought I would show everyone some of the other things I’ve been working on while I write and thumbnail Chapter 7. Yes, sometimes I do other things.
The painting below is a painting I did for the Jungle Party charity auction at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. The piece will go towards maintaining the zoos top level of animal care, education programs that teach the community about conservation and science-learning; and saving endangered species through field conservation programs around the world.
Below in order from left to right: Belawan, Towan (this guy was the inspiration for the orangutan in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Huran (Towan’s son), Chinta, and Melati. Find out more about these guys here.
