Not Astounding, but Webcomic Related Update

0 min read
Project: ASTOUNDING progress has been slower than I like lately, but I am currently developing a WordPress theme for it in addition to completing my other multimedia development projects and regular work. But what this update is really about is that I've been asked and whole-heartedly agreed to co-author one of my friends webcomics called 3 Wishes! We're rocking out some great ideas that should make for an intriguing story. The best part is that the 3 Wishes comics just relaunched and updates MONDAYS over at:

Project: ASTOUNDING 'Update'

0 min read
Well, I uploaded another promo pic to my DA gallery for my in-development webcomic series, "Project: ASTOUNDING". I might also upload some sketches for new character designs once they're finished. I usually design characters by doodling on notebook paper until I come up with a design I like. Once I choose a design, I come up with a color scheme for the character, and then practice drawing the character at different sizes so I get the proportions of various features down. This time though I might doodle digitally for the heck of it and see how the designs come out.

You're welcome. By the way, I think your picture of Melkor is particularly epic. I also like how you provided The Silmarillion's description of Melkor, I think it added to the effect of your picture.
Thank you so much for adding my picture "Dark Lord Melkor" to your favorites. I am always glad to see my work appreciated ^_^
