    Thanks a lot @Cleo-San !! I had a hard time trying to make a light-hearted expression on a lion's face, but I'm satisfied with how it turned out.

    You can be very proud of yourself, you did an awesome job there! =) It's really hard, drawing human mimic on an animal face, so credits! <3
    I can't wait to see more! ;)

    Thanks for sharing — I love to see how designs progress over time. How much time have you spent on all this?

    Hey thanks for the comment, @grawlixcomix ! I first started the idea of this comic late in 2011, but put it in the backburner for some time though still developing some ideas every now and then. I started working again more consistently last year around july, mostly on concept art and the overall arcs of the story, and on the website - usually spend more or less 6 hours a week in my spare time. I hope to be able to launch sometime this year, though I still have a LOT of work ahead before that, mainly script and of course, drawing the pages.

    Cool. Keep us posted — especially when your site launches.

    Thanks @MegaRdaniels ! Glad you're liking these cuz I find environment pieces extra challenging.

    Thanks again! Lighting and a good contrast in values make a huge difference. =)

    I say you're very talented. :)
    Do you have the link to your webcomic/comic book?

    Thanks, man, really appreciate it. I've got no link yet because this is all still a work in progress; I'm working on a lot of concept art, polishing the script, and putting the website together. I've only barely started with the actual pages so it's gonna be a while. I post updates here and on my instagram and twitter, so as soon as it's ready I'll be shouting it out everywhere I can.

    I finally settled on a title for my comic - Remnant Tribes. Man, it's hard finding a domain name these days! I've set up a basic maintenance page while I work on the website, which will be at remnanttribes.com. I also worked on a logo, which is not my strong suit but I think it'll do:

    I've also worked a bit more on ideas about the world of the story and I'm almost done with a map, for which I'll have a nice feature on the website:

    Next step will be to finally get started with some storyboards and pages.

    I found these two pieces I shared some time ago that I realize I haven't posted here. These are for a "history" section of the website that gives a brief historical account of how the Venthaal Empire took over the known world, way before the story kicks off. That page was just a big block of text, so I thought it needed some artwork to liven it up and make people more interested in reading it.

    This first one took a LOT of time. I don't know why anyone would assign such a thing to themselves.

    This one was a bit less tedious, but also was a lot of time.

    Excited to start showing some progress of how the website is shaping up, here's a snapshot. It'll have an explore section with an interactive map, charater gallery, and the history section mentioned previously. Also planning on a blog, though I'm worried it might require more time than I can afford, but I'll give it a shot.
