As I've mentioned in the past, I had to go on hiatus with my comics due to chronic hand pain cause by overworking. Drawing comics is highly demanding simply because there are so many panel, a short chapter is easily 30 panels or more, while a longer one can be up to 80. So that's a lot of drawing to just get 1 chapter out. I found out the hard way that my body just couldn't handle it as I experienced pain, swollen fingers, and deformed nails from just holding the pen for too many hours a day, everyday. That's why for years I've only been posting the occasional illustrations to make a living, instead of any comics.
For the last 2 years I've hired a team of 3D artist to build models for both Fisheye Placebo and Knite so that I can continue creating my comics. Painting over a 3D model to make it look 2D is much easier than drawing everything from scratch. It took a long time to build all of the characters and background models, but I'm excited to announce that production for the next Fisheye Placebo chapter is underway! And the new Knite chapter is mostly complete, just need a few more panels and touches. Check out my awesome team here!
I'm super excited to share my comics with everyone again in 2018! :D
Above is the paint over that took only about 30 minutes. Below is the original render. It's actually a super quick low quality render since it's just a test. The actual comic will have much better quality :)
