Prep for NaNoMangO
by Jay042

Next month is NaNoMangO, the artistic equivalent of NaNoWriMo. I'm planning on participating, though I'll working on a different project than Kaza.  Which means I want to get a few more pages done and in the queue before June. I have the first two weeks covered, but that still leaves three more pages to get done in the next nine days.

If I'm fretting over three pages in nine days, who will I get a page a day done? Well I'm doing the Kaza pages on 11"X17" (A3) sized paper, and I'm coloring and lettering the art in photoshop, which factors a lot more time into the creation process. For the NaNo, I'll be doing doing the art on 8.5"x 11" (A4). I'll be coloring with markers on lettering in situ. Plus I'm planning on doing the art in a slightly broader, more cartoonish style with a lot heavier inking than I do on Kaza. Hopefully this will allow me to work fast enough to complete a page a day, but the big issue will be keeping up the pace for a whole month.

I'll be setting up a seperate comic site for the story, so you can be on the look out for than in July.


Next Update: April 28th

Just a heads up that I'm starting my next story this Thursday, and I'll have weekly updates for it.

Guess the Bad Guy!
by Jay042

I have the first page of the next  Kaza's Mate Gwenna story penciled. I had a couple false starts with it, but now I'm set on the story.

Though I kept saying I was going to write out this story before I started it, I once again fell into my habit of improvising. I'll try and write out the next couple pages at least, and make certain I have a firm direction I want to go with this.

I've certainly turned up the crack factor on this one! No spoilers, but I'm going for some sci-fi this time around. I'm using one of the most infamous sci-fi villains ever created. He's instantaneously recognizable, but I'm not worried about potential copyright claims.

It still might be a while before I post anything, I want to get a few pages ahead and set a regular posting schedule.

Kaza's First Cameo!
by Jay042

Antihero had put the call out on the forums for guest strips for his comic Stranger than Fiction. So I obliged him with a cameo of Kaza, alongside Charlie Sheen and Thomas Jefferson in a parody of a Charles Atlas comic ad. No, I'm not certain that makes much sense, but it's up and you can take a look for yourselves.

Since I've acquired an actual audience...
by Jay042

I was checking the statistics and noticed I'm getting over a dozen visits a day for the past week. So, I thought it would be worth the trouble to at least say hello to everyone and let you know I'm still working on the comic. I haven't got a set schedule I'm working from, so the best advice might be to use the RSS feed to let you know when I'm adding a page, or keep an eye out on my Deviant Art page since I post the comic concurrently there as well.

The current story "The Serpent Sorceress"  is actually pretty close to wrapping up. It should end up between 12-15 pages total. I need to keep these stories relatively short, casue every time I try doing some long, convoluted plot I end up losing my way and eventually abandon the project. My temperment is much better suited to these shorter stints. I already have an idea for the next story, so there's good chance I'll be staying on this for a little while longer.

So, still working and I should have another page up in a week or so. Thanks for stopping by!
