Here it is: the printed cover for The Fifth Columnist vol.1!! ^^ (Elex Media January 2010)

I can't tell you how relieved and anxious I am to finally getting this harbour of love done and dusted. The last couple of years have been so crazy (not to mention anti-social) that I honestly feel burned out inside! :D :dead:

Once again thank you very much to everyone who has helped make this project a reality. As always, all comments/criticisms are welcome :)

- Cover design by Agus Salim, edits by Binarti and Tia (from Elex) thanks ^^

hi debi! sori lama balesnya. kalau mau nerbitin komik, telepon ke penerbit dan minta waktu ketemuan dengan editor.

macam2 penerbit beda2 syaratnya, tapi biasanya harus ada sinopsis 1 halaman, dengan sekitar 10 halaman komik yg sudah jadi dengan tone dll. ^^ nanti dari sample itu editornya akan lihat apakah cerita dan gambarnya potensial :)

dicoba aja dulu deb! yg pasti ceritanya harus dimatangin dulu :D ayo kerjakan tugas2 di sekolah! :D

It's such a buzz getting your stuff into print for the first time isn't it? :D And don't worry sweetie, I know aaaaall about the anti-social thing. I run a store by evening/weekends and work on my comic during the daytime.

Friends?? What friends?? LOL honestly... I haven't been social in months -_- Ah the sacrifices we make to get our stories out into the world.

Awesome cover too by the way :) I wish you the best of luck with it all!

thank you katty kat! ah, we anti-socials need to stick together! :D

oh, i see you've been meddling with 3D art lately, they look FAB! :heart: what software are you using, and is it hard to master? :)


all the best for this year!

I'm playing with Daz3D. It's a free program so take a look at it if you get the chance. :D You can download base models for it for free but you pay for clothes, extra hair and accessories etc... It's more of a posing program, you can't really edit maps or actual skeletons. I'll be getting the complete package of Poser 8 for my birthday, so I can model all my own clothes and characters from scratch. ^^ (Well... TRY anyway.) Daz3D and Poser are able to work hand in hand.

I've had a small background in 3D animation from my diploma days. 3D had lovely potential, and looks awesome when you complete something... but it's hard to get your head around too. I still have trouble with it :S
