Comic description

The Division is up to its neck protecting mankind from Dark Mages - and the other way around.

A new generation of Dark Mages is forced into service by the Division, and Seth Caelen tries his best to ease them into their new jobs. But his mission gets sabotaged when an over 60 year old, home-made problem surfaces and threatens the existence of mankind: the return of the Demons.

Warnings: Occasional harsh language and swearing, some blood and combat violence, corporal punishment. [PG13]

[New Page(s): normally once weekly, usually Wednesdays.]

I love story telling, universe development and watching characters grow.
I always wanted to do visual story telling, and always loved comics.
The only problem is that I can't draw if my life depended on it.
I ended up with 3D rendering, and am quite happy that I have found a medium to share the stories my co-author and I are cooking up.

Other trivia: Scratching the age mark of 50. :-)

I love to see my fantasy become alive, be it in written words or pictures. I'm relately new to this medium though I loved reading comics as a kid.
Stories are literally my life, and developing them is a really fascinating part of it.

I'm really just a beginner, not that much different from yourself. You'll get the hang of things very quickly, but you have to commit yourself to learning and experimenting.

The figures and content you can buy at the store should always just be starting point. You mix items ("kitbashing") to create something unique. Of course, you can render a character "as is", but all the shape sliders are like the variables in human DNA. Even twins don't look 100% alike, and there's nothing worse than a perfectly symetrical face like you get from an untouched store character. They are meant to be changed.
If you are buying characters, I can only recommend that you think about "how can I mix this into a new person". George, Olie 8, the ethnic characters. Proper old and young skins & shapes.

Layering means that you render the image "in parts", with or without backgrounds, and then mix the various images together in a picture editing program like Gimp or Photoshop.

Ah, that's what you meant. :-)
Thank you for the compliment, but I'm really very much a beginner at lights. I mean, outside of the mere technical things like strength and such, there's a lot to learn about positioning, what light to use, etc.
Basically, a good book about photography or film lighting will teach you the basics. "Lighting&Rendering" by Jeremy Birn was one of the very basic literature suggested to me when I started this hobby a few years ago.
I also went to a webinar by Esha, hosted by Digital Arts (check the DAZ store), about lights, and that was really very good and helpful. I still have to put to practice what I learned there.
I can only recommend that you practice lights, light by light. Learn three-point light. One light at a time. Premade light sets are time savers, but the time you invest into learning the lights properly will pay off very fast. :-)

Nice paneling. I get a real manga feel from your work.

Thankyou for all the information. As a beginner in this wacked software I hang on every word. It is soo cool the way you mix and match to make a character. Well done btw.

24 hour render!?!?!? Just nuts! Whats this "layering" you speak of, or am I better off not knowing, lol. Well I appreciate your dedication to this story. I look forward to Weds now.
