Our first Friday update. I know this is a little underwhelming. Patience! The story begins next week, and then you get 22 pages of text and panel art. :)

Looking forward to more blog posts. As a traditional old codger I am ignorant of your process and hope to learn more.

Thanks for reminding me. I will try to do another blog post this week.

This is very intriguing! I am a longtime comic fan and I love the idea of bringing a fresh new character to life in the Bronze Age style. I shall bookmark, for sure.

One question about Liberty Lass: Her story begins at 16. You have several years of stories/plot lines in your head. Will she mature and even age as her story unfolds, or will she always remain 16? This artistic decision fascinates me and so whichever way you have decided, I would be interested to know your reasoning (for example functional, artistic, or traditional).

Thank you also for your blog posts. I know that this is time consuming, so I appreciate it even more. I have some ideas for my own short story comics (for which I'd also be inclined to use DAZ Studio and maybe Blender) but would have ZERO idea how to even get started. Your blog posts have already given me a few things to research and I hope you do continue to post more as time permits.

Thanks for the kind words. I will do more blog posts, I just have to find the time. The next step involves making screenshots of the DAZ process, which I had... but which have changed some with the new Iray process, and I just haven't got around to doing that yet. But I will!

In terms of age... Time will pass much more slowly in the comic than in real life, because we can only do 1 page, which takes up maybe 1 minute of Abby's life, per week. Some days will pass 'off screen,' but for instance, the time between page 3 and page 24 (the whole first issue) will only be from a Thursday afternoon to a Saturday morning. By issue 3 it will only be, Tuesday, I think. So in our first 18 months, only about a week of in-comic time will pass.

Consequently, Liberty Lass will be a 16 year old girl for a LONG amount of real-world time.

That sounds reasonable to me; thank you for sharing your logic on the aging question. By the way, I read your page 3. It's a wonderful start and I appreciate the character development. These friends know each other, but we don't know them yet, and I like how you're bringing us in.

I also like how your city, street-level, and character-filled views match in tone, character, and even how the lighting jives in all three. I look forward to more!

Thanks.

I am trying to achieve a consistent look. This is actually not easy, because all the resources are made by different people for different purposes.
