    Re: Concept art from my upcoming superhero comic 'Gods'

    Those who 'successfully' resist being Turned by the Gaunts are swiftly deposited into the deeper pockets of Mount Ryzar's catacombs, where a possibly worse fate awaits them...





    Lt Kara Flynn's overtures of diplomacy are blocked at every turn by the forces conspiring to return Ryzar to the world. Once the being is rendered manifest, she becomes less conflicted about taking up arms against them... but secretly using Cade Cyger's son as a decoy in order to conscript old- and soon evidently suspect- allies, soon begins to eat at her.



    "I know feel bad about the kid, Kar, but you do know the saying 'an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.'"
    "Well maybe thatíll slow up everyone tearing strips off each other for five seconds."



    Overlord Nargun's battleblade Hailstormer is rather more open than other 'charged' weapons about where it draws its power from.

        Mountain Fortress - recessed meridian staging city



        "Two inbound on the south wall, Lord Nargun. "
        "Then they're running out of ideas."




        Wraith Queen.

        Ryzar, ancientmost of the Elder gods, has been long in bed with forces steeped deeper yet in darkest prehistory.... a pact whose nature the being should have perhaps scrutinized more closely before undertaking a war dependent on their unquestioning obedience.

        "Heed them raise their peaceful hand.... now I take my knife... fill the night with scare..."




        Some of you may have noticed a bit of a horror vibe from a few of the images, but I figure the Mundar yaks are- unintentionally- the most disconcerting of this thread's menagerie of characters.





        Rayken Shorde head studies.



        "Cyger- I need you to put that... fruit... down."

        "Ray, I'm starting to think I'll never remember when I last ate. These things may look like they came out the back end of a bullrat but they smell like the best thing to come off a tree since frikkin' Eden."

        "'That's 'cause they
        are from Eden. Specifically, Lorn- first rock ever lumbered with the snot smears that ended up as you and me. Well you, anyway. Yam down one those things and inside a minute you'll curl up so bad, death by gut shot'll seem like the best Christmas you ever had."

        "Figures- feels like I followed the scent here all the way from the ravine. Looks like whoever owns this boat's hauling enough to honeytrap half a planet-

        "Well it's sure not for his
        own amusement. This spread doesn't exactly scream Evil Genius. Am I boring you?"

        "'Rad counter's going AWOL that direction- buck gets ten whatever was stored at far end of this hold lately's what the guy took as payment."

        "Cyger, I
        assumed that oak leaf didn't come out of a cracker. You... do know what AWOL means, right?"

        "Mm? Uh, yeah. Sure. Sure..."

          "Nothin' like a good shoot, huh, sarge?"
          "Shuddup, Nichols!"


          GDR (Global Defense Restitution) Shocktrooper




          The Global Defense Restitution governing the planet Aldar fail to get the ragtag pockets superhuman Slayers on message over plans to tackle the Great Incursion.

          With swathes of the population already scoured or Turned by the enemy, the claims of the 'battlefield'-suited renegades that the enemy's defenses include an all-destroying, impassable failsafe go unheard.

          Not to be outdone, the GDR troops dig up a slew of old heavy plant long consigned to history for a reason.





          Busted-down Grenadier Sgt Vance Hillbrandt fancies himself as the venerable leader-in-all-but-name of infantryman Major Cade Cyger's rowdy band of Slayers, and something of a surrogate father to the man himself.

          While he's not exactly deluded, both the Lightlord High Priestess known as the Scryer and Defence Vice Secretary Amber Weststar soon prove themselves higher up the chain of command.

          Conversely, Cyger possessed only the most threadbare handle on his own work-life balance to begin with. When the enemy take his own son hostage at the commencement of the invasion, he soon becomes anything but anyone's blue-eye boy.

            Though spared the rigours of physical combat and free to ruminate in her garden temples within the Fortress, Battlelord Commander Cyviah bears the responsibility of warding off the telepathic 'attacks' (ie negotiation entreaties to her Lordmaster Ryzar) from the Scryer.



            "No, seriously, Kate- Fenn may be Captain frikkin' Cro-mag but his baby is just too frickin' cute- I'm probably gonna have to have it for dinner."



            Unsuprisingly Aldar's populations take exception to Mt Fortress's Gaunt troopers Turning to them to beef up their already considerable numbers. However the sight of one training an 'Iron Crucix' on you from the rafters can work wonders to convince of the upside of conscription.




            Some early FX-test sequentials, undialogued. All a little testosterADD, but didn't turn out as far off from the kaleidoscopic grandeur I was aiming for as I expected.

                      So there's a a guy in this story who gets turned into a cyborg for not pulling his weight. If you ask me it's win win, but he kinda has a problem with it. Dude's name is Wrench, formerly Science Director Garrett of the Black Lamp supersoldier project.

                      Cade Cyger's battleblade is part of him. And now he's gonna make it part of you. The dude's selfless like that.

                        Odds n' ends part 2






                        Slayer Brig Holden wields a P-10 Sinesco Tribune Chargebow. His favouring of HEAP (High Explosive Armour Piercing) arrows compensates somewhat for his less than legendary aim. His more than legendary reputation with the ladies presumably enables him to sleeps nights, however... or not, as it were.

                          Overall, some really impressive work. The detail is incredible and the attention to background in the sequential tests is truly staggering.

                          Nice, nice stuff. I'm looking forward to updates on the progress if you're feeling inclined to give them.

                            Thanks Horsenhero- glad you're digging the show. I'm always looking to try and be as inventive and imaginative as possible within the limits of my ability, so that even when things technically crash and burn, at least there's something interesting somewhere in the image (hopefully!) Stay tuned, more to come!
