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…

Dualmask meets Jet Dancer – a story

New year, new employer, new suit. Maxwell Hudson took a flying leap out of his own penthouse. Corp Hudson nearly fell apart. Then it got better. Thanks in no small part to Chelsea and the new CEO, Roland Stockton. Oh, and I had my part in it. Sabotaged a couple of those Board members before…

The Latest

Hello all, long time, no post. Sorry about that. After the completion of WCL: Another Way, I found myself at a crossroads. I abandoned the Webtoons platform because I wanted to better monetize my work, which in my head is either getting revenue from hosting the comic directly at my site or from selling issues…

Beloved Weapon – my first product

Hey you guys, I ran across an interesting comment today. Someone essentially said “don’t stop pushing your first product; comics and books don’t expire”. And they’re right. Did you know that I am a writer too? I don’t mean “I like to put words together that sound cool on blog posts and comic pages” but…
