Getting back to work on WCL

I don’t know how my followers feel about WCL. Few people say anything, but this is the project that means the most to me. It keeps coming back, no matter how I try to convince myself to draw girls or make games or learn ZBrush or do something with Jet Dancer, WEAPON Combat League is…

REVIEW – Faro Vol. 1 by Faro Kane

I was asked to review a comic by Faro Kane called The Chronicles of FARO, Vol. 1. The story revolves around the titular character, a scientist who invents time travel and makes it his mission to prevent the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. This comic, each chapter drawn by different contributing artists, was very well drawn overall…

Elemental Goddess Series – Updated

A while back I posted the eight elemental goddesses I’d planned to use as bosses in my Zathira shmup. Since then, another artist on FB named Paul Tuma gave me the suggestion of making four more goddesses that could be used for a calendar, among other things. I thought this was a good idea and…

The Eight Goddess Bosses of Zathira

Today I finished my eight and final concept illustration of the bosses in the Zathira shmup I’m working on. In the planned order from first to last: The planned story of the game is as follows: on a distant world brimming with life, as time passes, the seven goddesses of the land discover that the…

Zathira Development Update

While I haven’t spent much time actually making assets or coding, the Zathira shmup game is very much still in progress. I’ve been doing more research and development work in the background to ensure this project doesn’t fail. To that end, I’ve committed to doing concept art and sketches while writing lots of notes and…

Time Lapse Digital Coloring Video – Kijani

Hey everyone, I decided to spend some time making another video of my digital coloring approach. I don’t do this enough, as some friends and family have told me, so I’m working on making more of a habit of doing it. As part of the Zathira shmup, I’m designing a number of ‘elemental deities’ to…

New Game Project: Zathira (Working Title)

I’ve decided to start a new project. The call of game development never leaves my mind so I decided to try again with a game idea that’s simpler than Jet Dancer but more complex than Flight of the Stratos Guardian. So I’ve decided to work on a shoot-em-up (shmup). A fellow deviant on deviantART gave…

Jet Dancer vs. Drone Acolyte complete

So yeah, I finished the Jet Dancer vs. Drone Acolyte minicomic. It was a fun exercise that helped me learn a bit where my strengths and weaknesses lie in my comic art. I posted the process of the first page, but I’ve decided that I’ll just post the pages here in their completed state. The…

Jet Dancer vs. Drone Acolyte

I recently finished a big coloring commission, so now is the time for me to get back to work on what a lot of people follow me for: my premiere character Jet Dancer! Those who purchased a copy of my art book RPB (available here in print or digitally) may have run across this young lady: Her…

Dualmask Meets Jet Dancer pt2

Proud of yourself, Mike? I storm through my apartment door like a scolded kid sent to his room. I toss off the damnable helmet and flop on my couch. I still hear it in my head. Her screams. They’re echoing in my brain now, like I just came from a concert and the pounding guitar…
