Art & Skin pomekin
i did the pixels tho
okay so i keep getting questions on my current stuff , how and where to get them, so if you are one of the people who asked, this is my answer :) (Smile)

my comicwokrk currently consists of 3 basic branches of work

writing and art done by me

art done by me

and covers done by me




before we get to the books themselves i would like to offer bit of an insight for anyone interested in getting their own stuff out there.


i am not covering crowdfunding as i personally stay clear of it.

this is a bunch of experiences i had, and since i got through this and am now doing fine, i thought some might find them useful


now, as i work predominantly for independent companies, my work can be a bit hard to get.



reason for this is a simple one. comic book stores buy their supplies from diamond. the main distributor. 
they buy stuff they know will sell. comics aren't a huge profit business so they have to choose the winners on their own.

it is a harsh system but comic store owners have bills to pay as well. so don't take this as me harping on them in any way  :) 

it's more of  an explanation of how things work for those interested in getting into creator owned/indie market.

some stores will stock on indie stuff, most will stock on issue 1 and judge on people preordering issue 2 onward, whether or not they will keep ordering the book.

unfortunately this is how good books often die. customers don't really know this process. i certainly didn't. 

we enter a store pretty much expecting the store to hold the product that is relevant to their business and our interest. it is a given to us.

unfortunately this doesn't work with comics. preorders and pull lists are what makes or breaks an indie book, so if you plan on making and publishing a comic, keep this in mind. this nearly killed death vigil.

it is a vicious cycle.

it is a road to failure and here is how it goes

1 publish a book and people like it- you are in 7th heaven...

2 people don't know about preorders so they count on the store to keep ordering and they'll keep buying. this isn't so. store orders significantly less copies of volume 2 and 3 and publisher regulates the printrun accordingly

3 you start realizing that the initial profit melts away after issue 1 with alarming rate, and by issue 3 you find yourself struggling to keep your head above the water...

4 this is when you take on sidegigs to help finance the book you are passionate about. while you are trying to make ends meet, your book starts suffering delays...and the interest in it wanes

5 orders catastrophically drop with delays as readers more and more start trade waiting. ironically trade at that point might be a very optimistic idea...

6 misery and despair


many books vanished this way. my personal solution to this is-

1 inform people interested in your books about how this works
2 promote the good books.

way too much time i see spent on people discussing stuff they hated in books or stuff that offended them. 

way too rarely do we enthusiastically speak about the stuff we love. often we take the good entertainment for granted. hell just look at youtube. majority of successful channels and up being the ones shitting on the bad stuff. we thrive on cynicism nowadays.

it is the lifeblood of the internet.


also for a more detailed experience of creating indie comics  
i highly recommend 

www.jimzub.com/creator-owned-e…

jim zub is a veteran indie comic writer at image comics, currently writing skullkickers and wayward.



KEEP THIS IN MIND! DON'T BE DISCOURAGED! this is merely here to show you the pitfalls, now you can work on avoiding them. i was told a lot of this from other industry professionals so now i'm passing it forward
so good luck to all your dream projects becoming a reality :)









anyhow, my little rant aside, here are the books
and for european people who want to get my books there are online comic stores and physical ones. the one i cna presonally recommend is

 www.archonia.com/mangashop/en/

they are professional, and get the job done and usually stock up on my works so, they are a good bet 
also, all the books stated below with amazon links you can find at archonia as well. 






so, let's get this started. i will provide suggestions and amazon links for some as people found those useful so far





1 writing and art done by me

SUNSTONE

sunstone is my webcomic erotic romantic comedy  dealing with fetishism, relationships, sexuality...stuff like that.

Download (6) by nebezial

and as i know there are people who really like comixology format

www.comixology.com/Sunstone-Vo…






then there is 

RAVINE

my first  adventure in writing, and as suck starts off a bit clunky and heavyhanded, but as my writing improved , so did the flow of these books. 
so far only two have been published and due to it's catastrophic finantial failure, i will for now turn the series into a webcomic format first and publish as each chapter is finished.

it can hardly do worse than it did so far XD

my co writer on ravine is ron marz who has helped me tremendously to streamline the boook and offered wonderful ditorial consulting .


anyhoo, book 1 you can read for free here

ravine full issue1 enjoy :)-you have to download by nebezial

it's high fantasy stuff, dragons magic ansd so on. after april i will upload this and book 2 to my 3'rd account :iconwanderers-of-ravine: and there i will continue the story :) (Smile)



and then this fall, i will be starting off twitch, 
however for legal reasons series will be renamed to switch. 
anyhoo, it's a re imagining of the top cow universe. an out of continuity different take on top cows main franchises of witchblade darkness angelus and so on...

just a twitch compilation...nothing to see here! by nebezial

this is just kind of a thing because I was around the age of most of the people reading this when it happened, and I don't think I've brought it up in a solid five years /SO/

When you're 13-14 on here, youtube, or whatever- you're probably going to see a lot of guys older than you and you're llike "wOw I dig that." And I don't mean 30-40 year olds- I mean 19/20. And oocccaaasssionally you'll have opportunities to talk with these guys. Which is fine, I know some great guys that had that age gap that are still my good friends. hOWEVER, please please avoid getting talked into any kind of underage stuff? Like, some of these fucks will go ahead and sext or rp with you and you're kinda wanting to try this whole online dating thing and this older guy is into you and so you justify what you're doing with the fact that the age gap isn't too bad.
But the thing is, 13 to 19 is hUGE. Like, everything fuckin happens maturity-wise between those 5-6 years. And I'm not gonna say there's any specific age to start becoming sexually active. If you have a boyfriend and you're both ready whenever, go fuckin for it. But if you're in 8th grade and you have some fuck online which is new and exciting, plEASE PLEASE reconsider. If you want to see what dating online has to offer, date online, don't just take whatever comes your way.

It doesn't even come off as coercion at the time, because you're all excited and anxious, but in five years once you're on the other side of the line, just remembering what you did and what was done to you is going to make you want to vomit. (and obv i can't speak for everyone, but in this case it's also illegal and rape-y as fUCK)

So just be careful and keep in mind that everything happens over time and five years isn't particularly long, so find who you want to be with rather than testing the waters with some nasty fuckin shit like a college-age fuck that's into middle schoolers.

Damn, holy crap. The last time I had a FNaF dream like this was right before FNaF 3 was announced.

Anyways, I had a really freakin' hypo-realistic dream. Like, so realistic I woke up going "Holy shit, FNaF 4's coming. ...Wait."

It sounds silly, but in my dream, a few of you guys were urging me to go to Scott's website. I did, and there was a really dirty/worn down animatronic, which we guessed was Fredbear due to the hat [brownish like in the minigame]. It looked like Golden Freddy, only almost all of his exoskeleton had been worn down and was almost gone/almost missing all color.

After a little while, I checked his site again and the picture of Fredbear was replaced by a really creepy [again], hypo-realistic version of Balloon Boy. Like, he looked human. And if you messed with the contrast a bit his eyes would disappear and he'd look like the crying child.

(Also, my dream changed and there was another picture that I had apparently missed of Foxy; he had an entire crew but it was scrapped. Can't remember all of the animatronics, but Foxy was originally a hand puppet, and the main animatronic was a really scarred/scruffed up gorilla. And they had a rival pirate crew. Kinda cool, I might draw the rival crew. It was actually pretty neat.)

Uh, anyways, yeah. I went to Scott's website the moment I woke up, nothing changed. Still, it felt REALLY real. Oops.
