I've moved my fan art to the "Piper's Extra Things" page above.

Plus for those interested inside the 'ABOUT' page, I've posted a thumbnail sketch I've done for a future page. I was inspired by Seabiscuit to show my process. It was done on Letter sized paper with a 2H pencil. It's what I use before I go up to 11x14.

A bit confused but still interested. I'm pretty sure all the pieces will fall together.

I have some pages coming with lots of talking heads and exposition. So hopefully there will be some clarification.
Please hang in there.

Piper does have quite the imagination... or is this real? I guess we will see.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Well, I can reveal that Piper is not the one generating these visions.

How do you manage to get such amazing pages done so quickly? *Jealous stare*
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Instead of drawing and finishing a page at a time. I actually draw up to 6 pages at a time. I have found it is actually easier for me to organize what little time I have to draw and cuts down on the many continuity errors that I make.

An old WWII anti-submarine base? NATO sonar listening post? CIA black site? Nice.

This strip is the bomb.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
It's a secret base for a secret organization. Hail Hydra!

Yes.. I was trying to pour on the menacing with this character.

Can't tell if this is sci fi or fantasy. Or both. Or neither. Whatever it is, it's delicious!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Since I love both Sci Fi and fantasy, I thought it would be okay if I mashed them together.

Yeah, I think Skweeee & BiffBoff grind these out of a sausage machine!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Ouch!

You're right Mo. In my mind I'm a Steven Speilberg of artistic creativity in comics,
But in reality I'm more like the Ed Wood of comics creating.

so many questions. That was no dream that's for sure.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
I have some pages coming with lots of exposition. Hopefully, that should quell most of the confusion now dominating the story. Please hang in there.
Domship edit delete reply
Domship
confusion is good!
Fig edit delete reply

fucking awesome as always. if i may, on the second row, i would just leave out the textbox and 'crunch' sound effects. your artwork can really speak for itself there, as the moment lends it enough drama to work without those minor elements. imo, they kinda detract from the epicness of the moment. but i mean... damn. xD
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Awesome advice Fig!! Thank you! Being a self taught hobbyist I find this kind of advice incredibly useful. You're right about the fact that if a picture is rendered just right the reader will unconsciously place the sound anyway.

Next week I plan to go back and edit my whole story for grammar and spelling, etc. This will be definitely one of the things I intend to edit.

Lol Bebber is the only one with fan art. xD I might have to change that. ;)

And you like a lot of the stuff I like too. Which was probably already obvious from our comics. :)
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thank you Kara! I guess you already know that when you're trying to build things like; revenge, romance, and redemption, in your story they require many dedicated pages and panels to set them up properly.
kara edit delete reply
kara
I think you're setting it up well, Skweeee. :) For mine, some are set up and some I've tossed at the reader in the back story, hope it still comes off well overall.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thank you very much Kara! Some days I really need to read such a generous compliment. Today being one of those days. Also nice to know you 'get' what I'm trying to build here. :D

Next page, some Bond-villain petting a white cat.

Hmmmm. I think I should close my blinds when I'm drawing. You are obviously peeking at my upcoming page through my window.

Wow, fantastic page! And whao, who was that? Each page gets more and more interesting.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thank you Sephirencomics!

There's a pretty good chance that that was Piper's brother; Krokuss.

Seriously though, excellently done!
Skweeee edit delete reply

Thanks Outlaw! It's a relief to get feedback saying that there is actually suspense.

I love those top four panels especially here, there's a real atmosphere of something evil in the air!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Ah! Yes, I was definitely going for scary on this page.

Proxy170
Good thing she didn't see it, that would have scared the heck outta me.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
She probably wouldn't have believed her eyes anyways, I think. Unfortunately, for Piper, their meeting is inevitable.

I love anything with a giant in it. Since I was a kid, anything with a giant in it, I liked.

I can't say I've really liked anything with giants until now. Nothing comes to mind at least.
