Central Zoo Guest Comic
Here's my guest comic for Central Zoo. This is part of Derek's (the young guy) arrival to the zoo full of talking animals. The story started at the bveginning of the week, so if you want ot get the rest of the story check the link,
Loading...

There's an old man on Mars. He's one of the Firsters, born on Earth, helped colonize the Red Planet two generations ago.

Once every 365 Earth days he takes a Rover out into wilds to track down this old robot. Some foundation back on Earth pays him to keep it running. To clean off it's solar panels, replace worn parts, and do periodic upgrades.

It's data gets sent to the sattelite network orbiting above and ends up sent to some AI data cruncher back on Earth. Despite all the yearslif all of the other more advanced probes sent here, no evidence of life has been found in the rocks. The old man still expects the robot will find the answer, one day.

Most of the Real Martians think keeping that old robot going is nothing but wasteful sentimentally. Maybe it is, the Real Martians wouldn't understand the small boy that cried over a dead machine, or the driven young man that wanted to be an astronaut. It's so different now, A lot of his friends are dead or gone back to Earth, these kids just don't get it. They'd shut it down, drag it into the domes and put it on display like taxidermy. No, it's job is to collect data, and it did it for years more than it's planned service life. The old man and the other Firsters saw it come back to life, and he'll see it through to the end of his days.

This year's Comic Fury Valentine's Crossover was a bit different from previous exchanges. Each participant chose a character that would be used for the exchange, and they would get randomly paired with some other character. The results ranged from awkward to endearing, but only Kaza and Artemis from Swordcat Knights turned their "date' into a comic book team-up!

Best part of this project was the excuse for me to final  use the dinosaur smuggling ring in a story.

I find deadlines useful. If I don't have a date I'm trying to beat, I'll procrastinate pretty much forever. So, to try and keep up my productivity on Kaza's Mate Gwenna, I'm setting some deadlines for new pages.

Right now, I have three pages completed. I have them queued up on Comicfury starting next Tuesday. So I want to try and get at least one more page done by Tuesday. Then, I'll see how long I can keep that schedule going.
Exciting Comics
More fun with Photoshop. This time I took the cover of Exciting Comics #64 by Alex Schomburg and switched it from Judy of the Jungle to Gwenna.

And we're back! I decided to go ahead and post the three pages I had ready and get .  As you may recall, on page 11 Gwenna got hypnotized by Van Horn and he flew off with her. I had this image sitting incomplete for a while. The final panel being a problem, thankfully I found a SenshiStock pose that worked for me.

Dr Luscious
Doctor Alexis Luscious is a super villain who hails from the so called Pornoverse; an alternate universe governed by the rules of porn films. Her life changed when she met a dimension hopping scientist and his grandson. Realizing the potential, she seduced the old man and stole his portal gun.

As I had mentioned before in my last project queue update,  on Friday will  get to see my Central Zoo guest comic. Central Zoo will be featuring guest comics all week starting today. It's a fun series about a zoo full of talking animals and the psychiatrist hired to help them sort out their problems.
Victoria
Took another stab at my naked Superwoman idea, this time I decided to go more generic and file off the serial numbers completely.

Victoria has the ability to absorb and convert solar energy that gives her incredible strength, durability, flight and energy attacks.  Her powers are very dependent on the amount of energy she can absorb through her skin, thus her tendency to wear little more than a sheer cape.

Life has been a bit erratic these past few weeks. The last few weeks of January were kind of rough at work, I had one week where I didn't work at all, and then I ended up running some extra long days the following week. I had also been working a side gig as a stage hand at a local community theater, which made for some long days during the final week of rehearsals. Despite that I did have my spurt of creativity with all of my character drawings at the end of the month.


Comic Fury Valentine's Day Exchange: DONE- Arriving 2/14

As I have said, it's done and will be turning up here after the exchange occurs on Valentine's Day.

Central Zoo: DONE- Arriving 2/15

As I had posted in my last status update, I did a one page strip for Roger Wilbanks' Central Zoo webcomic that he posts on Facebook. It will be arriving the day after Valentine's Day the 15th. The week of guest strips in participating in is part of his webcomic's anniversary.

Kaza's Mate Gwenna: Up the River

I have been slacking off on this once again. I do have pages 14 and 15 drawn and fully colored, but I haven't added text yet, and it's likely I may alter my plans for page 16 into two separate pages. I'm also looking to make use of some pages I've already sketched/drawn out but haven't used yet.


Gwenna's Unnamed Super Team

Still under development. I've got a few ideas for stories and characters, and right now I'm leaning towards a relatively small team.

TheCosmicBeholder's Blue Knight and Wicked Witch Babs are pretty much shoe-in at the moment. I've also considered a few more of his
My own character Izzy Wells probably going to play a central role in events. Plus I expect Gwenna's mom Miranda will be playing a role in the story.
That will probably cover the first story I have planned, beyond that I may be picking and choosing other characters to fill in spots.


Miranda Davis
Miranda is Gwenna's mother. She divorced her husband George while Gwenna was still young. George soon remarried and stayed in their Connecticut home, while Miranda left for New York and her career as a fashion magazine editor. She stayed in touch with Gwenna, and even took her on some of her business trips in her teens. She later helped Gwenna get her big break in publishing, which lead to her fateful meeting with Kaza.

At this point, she's resigned to Gwenna's odd lifestyle. She likes Kaza well enough, but her conservative nature makes it hard for her to deal with their constant nudity, especially her daughter.

She's now the publisher of a half dozen magazines, including Masque Magazine. She is currently involved with industrialist Morgan Vanstorm.

I'm adding another small project to the queue. My friend Roger Wilbanks who does the strip Central Zoo on Facebook was looking for some guest artists for his anniversary week story. He had a script for me to work off of, and only four panels so it's a quick job. I'll post it here after he puts it on FB.
The LNG
This is all TheCosmicBeholder's fault.

When I posted that Lady Venus pic yesterday, he suggested my super team I've been talking up should be all naturist. It honestly wasn't what I had planned, but the idea stuck with me, especially after I did that Ebullient pic today.

So here we have the LNG: The League of Naturist Guardians (though the public thinks it stands for "Live Nude Girls")

The team came together because all the members had the same problem: Their powers didn't work with clothing, which ended up being a problem in some of the other groups they were part of. So they banded together and made their perceived weakness into their brand.

The team consists of Bluefire, the flying fire elemental, whose tendencey to burn through uniforms got her removed from her previous team.

Sidewise has some of the most effective point to point teleportation abilities in the world, but couldn't get on any teams since there was a distinct limitation.

Ebullient (aka Bubble Girl) had the problem of her powers being dependent on her skin being exposed to air, which kind of damaged her chance to join The Protectors. Instead she found others with the same problem and has become an effective leader.

Paramount's growing abilities tended to leave her naked, which made her rather self-conscious. Joining the LNG has helped her over come her inhibitions.

The team has proven quite effective in a number of situations, despite some parts of the media deriding them as attention seekers. Criticism that increased after the team got their own reality TV series. But the girls ignore the worst of it and keep doing what they are good at.

Interesting Fact: Gwenna was offered membership in the team, but she declined since it was mostly a ratings ploy for their show's new season.

Ebullient (Bubble Girl)
Ebullient (aka Bubble Girl) is a character I came up with and even gave an origin story to some time ago. I was on this roll with all the other characters, it was a good time to revisit her.

Cobalt
An OC I came up with, though I hevan't really thought out much of her story. She's got super strength and invulnerability thanks to her metal skin, but I haven't really developed a backstory for her.
