Character Profiles

A lot of work has been done to get these results.  A lot of trial and error.  Let me know what you think.

Toon Shading & Edge Rendering

The following render is a practice peace of our cover page.  We put in toon shading and edge rendering.  You can see the difference between the original concept cover page and this.  We still have a lot of work to do on the lighting.

We are in the process of formatting.  We are setting up the balloons and captions.  With a shot format above each panel.  I took out the words for the balloons and the captions, because I don't want to give away any of the story yet.  The shot formats above the panels will obviously be removed as we input our art.

Extras Concept Art

Where ever Rasher rides a butterfly will follow. For no reason other than I like it and artistic expression
representing beauty and freedom.  Oh, and my wife really digs butterflies.

Weapons Concept Art

So much to do.  Creative weapons are a necessity in Rasher's role as a comic book.  Everything has already been done.  Creativity is a must and we are working hard on getting the job done.  I wont start a new post every time I want to update a weapon.  I will just update this post.

Artistic Goals

The following are a list of artistic goals that I have set as I throw myself into this comic book creation

Target Audience - Motorcycle Enthusiasts, Bikers, Adventurers, Rock-a-billies, Bad Ass Wanna-Be's

Genre - Action/ Adventure

Writing - Full Script

Art - Realistic
- Cloths - Leather, blue jean, chains, spikes, bandannas, vests
- Buildings - Native to Nevada
- Lighting - Creative licence to artist
- Scene - concentrate on motorcycles and scenery

Impression - Some times you have to go to Hell for the better good.

Deadline - I have never created a comic before so I have no idea how long this will take.  I can only work steady.

Programs Used

We have had to use a few different programs to put this project together.  The following is a list of the programs we have used so far and their URLs.

Blender Newbies Forum - A special shot out to my friends at the Blender Newbies Forum who without their help and advise I would not even be able to begin this project.

Blender 3D - This is a free download that we used to create the images for the panels of our Rasher Comic Book.

Gimp - This is a free download that we use to adjust the images we rendered from Blender

Celtx - This is a free download that we used to write the script for the Rasher Comic Book.  We also used this website to share the script with team members so that they may edit or adjust the script as needed.

Comic Life - This is a program that we use to put the comic book together.  It offers you different panel options and image style options.  It is a free trial download, but you buy the program for about $30

Hero Machine 2.5 - This is the website where we created our concept characters for the Rasher Comic Book.
