I’m so close to being done with issue 2 but my large format scanner broke and I need to find another one. Wah wah wah!
Fake Band Poster for Issue 2
Emo Ninja Academia
The inking stage of my second issue is almost complete! I just have to make a band poster (which has been difficult only because I have so many ideas) and add a little crosshatching. I am currently taking a graphic novel class so my production level has been pretty slow because I have to make a comic for that class too. It will all get done! It shall! In the meantime, enjoy this sketch of Emo Ninja in school.
Emorific Issue #2 Cover
I’ve been working hard and have made some changes to issue #2. Don’t worry, It’s still about zombies, but it’s more of a setup to a story arch about them. A scene band, named The Necromancy, has learned how to make their fans into mindless slaves. They use garbled lyrics and a strange device that hooks right up to their amps. Emo Ninja’s invulnerable sorrow somehow makes him immune. Funny enough, expressing the core of his being is the only way he can stop the mindless horde.
Trying to think of a title so I can finish this cover!
Getting Some Work Done
Thumbnails and Character Design
Emo Ninja Color
Emo Ninja colored on Pixelmator. Mac users, I highly recommend this program. Like photoshop but 15 bucks!
One small iced coffee was enough to power me through an Emo Ninja drawing session. I have been working semi-diligently on the second issue entitled “ATTACK OF THE HIPSTER ZOMBIES!!!”. I have to ink 3 more pages, scan them, digitally clean them up, letter, and do some graphic design work. If that sounds like a lot…well, it is but I am over halfway through the process. That’s something to celebrate.
Characters and Concepts
So you all have an idea of what to look forward to, I made a slideshow of the characters I plan to use within the comic. I have full story arcs for some of them but am still working on them for others. Enjoy!
A Comic Book Call to Arms?
This is an article I wrote for The Artificial Selection Project on how I started to work on Emo Ninja, how that ultimately failed, and how I am dedicated to creating it now. Enjoy.
