...so I started yet another online comic project… This one though, will be only a short story and it's all about a snowy dark forest, one badass Viking and a few nasty surprises.

I was thinking of making the project visible right from the start, which means I will keep updating this thread as I make new panels & pages for the story.

I'll try to post the URL to the site later this week. Smile

Thanks for taking a look & rock on fellow Sijuners!

p.s. Please listen to this song while looking at the content:

p.p.s And here's the link to the comic online: http://murskain.pp.fi/whereshadowsfall/index.html

And here's the first "page". The format will be a down scrolling one with approximately 2 chapters worth of content.

Awesome works from you lately, you sure have improved a lot. It looks really good.

You gonna make a separate website for this project?

Thanks guys! ^__^

whom, yes. I'll put a site together sometime soonish. It'll be something really simple again
like I used with Genesis a year ago (damn, time flies…). I'll probably update it a little bit
with more current sharing functions and such.

I'm also really happy that the song gets approval, since it was one of my main sources
of inspiration. That whole album "Sprit of Ukko" (their first I believe) is full of
powerful songs like Across the snows (the one that I linked).

Incase somebody gets seriously interested:
http://www.play.com/Music/CD/4-/5447399/The-Spirit-Of-Ukko/Product.html?searchstring=kiuas&searchsource=0&searchtype=allproducts&urlrefer=search

And that being said, I really should thank you whom, since a image that you posted
a while ago in the speedpainting thread really got to me and I suppose also gave
me a lot of inspiration for this story.

It was the one with the really dark fog, a knight on a horse and the flying monster.
I'd buy a poster of that immediately if it was possible. Very Happy

Whom, dude, seriously... your speedpaints are a damned elemental force. And as if that's not enough,
you are starting to show the same crazy skill and work ethic with the creature sculpts
you have been making.

lol, I guess you can ruin somebody´s day with all that. Cool

A small update:

a small update here, "page 2" is now ready. can be seen above. Smile

Felt real good to paint something really organic again, I've been doing way too much machines, body armor and metallic surfaces recently with the Genesis storyline.

Yea this looks good, I really like the overall color scheme. Gonna be interesting to see what happens next. Smile

Regarding wolfs, cause there was a woman killed today in Sweden by a pack of wolves at an animal park. She worked with the wolves and had been for three years when today they suddenly attacked her and killed her.
....Gotta be careful when it comes to wolves, I do think some people seem to mistake them for dogs.

That animal park accident was tragic, just read the news myself. Sad

Regarding the story, I will build up the tension a bit more and I'm quite confident that it will deliver a surprise or few along the way. Cool

Thank you for the comment!

p.s. There's a "third" page already uploaded, but it is at a draft stage.

looks nice, goes well together.... One thing that kind of got my eye, is the heavy smokelike mist from the warm breath... not so much that is quite smoke like in its movements, but that it's pretty much all the frames, basically the feeling of exhale, relaxation... I feel you could get some more tension to some of the moments by leaving the breath out, a slight feeling of urgency might come out from just that.

my 2c!

Sneak - busted! Heh heh. Very Happy

Nice unity, yep (agree).

How'd I miss that song first (fifth? sixth?) time through - google translate (last
verse)...

"alone, he wanders mis' shadow falls
through the mist and frost, accompanied by a steel
heart is cold as the land of the frost
but the anger in his eyes, burning like a fiery stove"

Me, started another story (story only) back in January (did I mention this
already?); scifi. Thirty years and eighty-seven characters later, I think it's run its
course. Very least: good practice in character development. Smile

@ Lakka Thanks, that's a very good idea and I'll give it a try,
especially when the storytelling picks up and the action starts.

@durgldeep LONG TIME NO SEE!! Sounds like you've been busy,
just scriptwriting (damn that is still hard) or doing visual stuff too? Surprised

Hehhe, that google translated bit was pretty accurate,
it only missed one word. Very Happy
"alone, he wanders mis' shadow falls.. -> alone, he wanders where shadows fall..."

Thanks for the comments!!

Hehe, yep I'm still here. Smile

No graphics, just scriptwriting in my head; outline on paper (placeholder for
various events). Flows a lot better when I don't pause to write - damn, where's
that brain-to-keyboard plug... Question

Afterthought: I do have miscellaneous pics for the characters (from the web);
useful focus/placeholders. Smile

And: couple days ago started rewriting Blade Runner, lol, just for the hell of it
(couple parallels between the stories so not hard to nudge some characters into
Deckard's world - er, Ford is out, Morrison is in! heh heh Wink ). Sound track got me
started (still damn good, hell yes). Very Happy

Man, I wish that instead of doing a sequel for Bladerunner they'd give Roy Batty his own movie. I'd watch the shit out of that.

Have you heard this btw? More ambient, trippy stuff from Vangelis related to the movie.

Hmmmm - Rutger Hauer has a helluva filmography already; something special in mind?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutger_Hauer#Filmography

Re link, haven't heard that one. Thanks. Smile
-----------------

Oh: u mean his own Bladerunner sequel, okay (missed that and I'm not even sleep-
deprived, hmmmm...).

Whee, a new page!

And it only took 4 months... *LOL* 3-4 more pages
and the 1st chapter should be done. Confused



And the link: http://murskain.pp.fi/whereshadowsfall/wsf_chapter1.htm

Still chugging, wow. Smile (me too (but locally))

Inspired me to 'paint' a couple frames - in MSPaint,
hehe (fun with old computers).

Single page layout is still my fave. Smile

Easy to be an armchair critic (and not actually *do* anything) so here's my
doodle/comment fee. I guess it's not clear (to me) if the wolf was scared away
or is still lurking (still in the story), ie. when he bangs his shield; if the former
then maybe a couple more panels:


[Edit: also here http://forums.sijun.com/viewtopic.php?p=432042#432042 ]

Again, easy for me to say (that looks like a lot of work to me, yep). Kudos. Smile
