If anyone is interested in the old comics I made as a kid, which this saga is based on, you can find them here: sta.sh/01389mgeukab
I must remind you, that I did make those a long time ago, and they are quite unreadable. But you might enjoy the comments I made in the readme file.
Also, for all you game enthusiasts out there, I've made a game which you can find here: www.mediafire.com/download/q8a…
It's in 3D, but it's crap 3D, like something from the early nineties. It's a puzzle/platform game, and it is rather short with little to no actual story. But it is entertaining, and I think you might be surprised at how well made it is. It's set between the 2nd and 3rd story arcs, if you're intrested in timelines.
Another edit here, just so you know, I've started writing a series of short stories, the first of which can be found here: fav.me/d74tcfj
It takes place between the 2nd and 3rd arc, or if you prefer, between pages 12 and 13. I'll include a link on page 12 so you can read in chronological order.
This is the cover I've designed for my epic story, and I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. For me, it's the perfect cover, and for several reasons. Here, let me tell you the design process, and why I've utilised certain elements. First thing first, I've had the idea for this cover for ages, I even drew a draft of what it would look like, last year. But it's only recently that I've acquired the skills necessary to make it. As you may know, I've been making Raz comics since 2005, and most of those comics were pretty bad, but I did draw covers for them, bad ones. I had a certain design for those covers, where I had the title at the top, a overlapping triangle thing beneath it (like you see on this cover), underneath that would be something interesting like a picture of Raz or his Fruit Juice Machine, and inside the triangle thing would be the translation of the title. The original comic was called Zime-Me-Mat, and the Z was the wrong way around, the translation in the triangle thing said To The End. But more recently as you can see, I've been using the title Raz and the Everything, which is a title I made up when trying to create a game for Raz, and it kind of stuck. So instead of having the title in an alien language, and the translation in English, I've reversed it. Another interesting thing of note, and this is perhaps the best part, is the background with the wormhole. That wasn't designed for this cover, that was originally made using a trial version of Coral Painter back on my old Windows 98 computer (yes, it's that old). I sort of used it as a backdrop for, once again, attempts at making games based on Raz, more recently though, I've vectorized it and used it as the basis for this cover. The amazing part is though, that the wormhole aligns perfectly with the triangle thing, almost like I knew what I was eventually going to use that backdrop for, all those years ago. And to top that off, my last ever Raz comic which was also titled Raz and the Everything and was actually the first to use the name (until this one), had for a cover only raz walking past a giant wormhole. So a wormhole is very appropriate for this comic, I think.
This cover is my ultimate piece of artwork, because it uses elements from everything I've ever associated with Raz, and I mean everything. This is truly a great piece of artwork which uses not only newly made stuff, but also old things as well. And as for the font, I found that font the day I had decided to make the final version of this cover, and it fits in so perfectly. I usually don't believe in fate, but if I did, I'd say this cover was meant to be. My Masterpiece for my Masterpiece.
