First things first! Durontus: The Lost Serpent (formally Durontus Rising) is done! Over a year's worth of blood, sweat, tears, long nights and frustration, but it's done. Featuring the talent of Scott R. Schmidt (writer), Sara Sowles (colorist), Ryan Lee (cover colors) and eh, myself (pencils and inks). The book is 24 pages full color and is currently entirely self published.
I will be unveiling the book at G-Fest XX this weekend! I also just posted the book to my Etsy store for those of you who aren't going to make it. https://www.etsy.com/listing/156460929/durontus-the-lost-serpent-24-page-comic?ref=shop_home_feat Fans of Godzilla,
It's been a while since my last update… man, I need to be a little more diligent.
Since my last post I've been very hard at work with both of my graphic novel projects, Arcana Comic's The Numbered and actor Barry Duffield's Deadman's Land. Both are a little over 100 pages and and I'm on pencils and inks. Trying to churn out all of the pages on a regular basis has certainly detracted from my online posts and so on.
Convention season is starting for Sara and I, and after our successful adventure on Free Comic Book Day at a local shop, Rookies, we are getting ready for the slew of upcoming conventions and shows.
First on the list is Motor
Finally. I've completed the pencils and inks for my first full, cover to cover book, written by Scott R. Schmidt. My wife, Sara Sowles will more than likely handle color and I know she's on board for letters. Once we get everything squared away, Scott and I plan on pitching the book to various small publishers to see if we can get someone interested in publishing and distributing it. If that fails, we're still gonna self publish everything.
Honestly, the book reads great from beginning to end, and there is potential for a great multi-arc story. We've come up with a lot of really interesting ideas that take the sea monster down a very my
I finally bit the bullet and made an Etsy. My hope is that it makes ordering our prints Easier and more convenient. We sell quite a few prints at conventions and shows and I'm hoping that having an online store where they are all available will help. If there is an interest after some time, I will also be posting original pencils and inks for sale, too. Please take a minute to check it out: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KillustrationStudios
Feel free to message me or send me an email if you have any questions. I hope to be posting more soon, so if you don't see a print that you KNOW I have, don't worry.
So, yeah, commissions are open! I can draw/paint pretty much whatever you want. I'm gonna take a break from comics for a bit and spend a little time drawing some fun stuff.
I oil paint, watercolor, pencil and ink just about anything. Dinosaurs, Grandmas, Spider-Man, whatever. Check out my DA gallery for what I do - there's even a section devoted to past commissions. You can also check out my website at www.thekillustrator.com
Typical sizes for a commission are 8.5 x 11 and 11x17. I usually start at around $25 for a single character pencil and move up depending on size and complexity, usually reaching a ceiling of less than $100. So,
