Hey y'all! Starting a thread for projects I've got in various stages of development. Process pieces, forthcoming!

To start it off, a logo and some character designs for a pitch I'm just getting ready to send out.

  • Looks good, I'm impressed. Anything with backgrounds, too?

    I take it this is all digital?

    Looking forward to seeing more.
  • Thanks a lot, sir! Means quite a bit to hear you say so (though, to be very clear, I am NOT the artist on this -- just very lucky to be working with a great one)

    Yes, Ralf works completely with digital!

    Here are some sequentials, w/o letters (letters coming soon!)

  • The art's great, but I have to say that I'm losing the Ts in that logo design… it's clever, and I appreciate it as a design, but it sacrifices legibility to that cleverness.
  • Attractive art.

  • Glad you like it !

    Jim, point well taken about the logo; for me, the extended crossing of the second "T" in truths supplements the somewhat unclear nature of the first 'T'. Really pleased with the logo.

    Cold Truths
    Written/Co-Created by Deniz Camp
    Penciled/Inked/Co-Created by Ralf Singh

    And if gaining the truth meant giving up everything else...would you pay that price?

    Logline: Hidden secrets threaten to tear apart a brother and sister as they race to stop a woman with the power of a god as she threatens to bring about the end of the world. It’s Boondock Saints meets Lord of the Rings as we go on a globe-trotting adventure in this action-packed urban fantasy!
  • edited August 2014
    The art looks great, that seems like a solid premise...I'd maybe tweak the log lines some? Like:

    "A brother and sister race to stop a world-ending threat, but the secrets they uncover on the way could tear them apart."

    or 

    "A brother and sister race to stop the end of the world. But the secrets they uncover along the way might be a bigger threat than the godlike power they have to face."
  • Brilliant reworking, Josh! I've callously stolen your first suggested rework! Thank you so much!
  • Happy to help.
  • A couple of logos for a separate, unrelated project I'm working on with Juha Halme. Logo/Graphic Design by Juha!

  • Cold Truths Has You Covered!

    Cover mock up. Pencil/ink/line art by Ralf Singh. Colors by Dennis Lehmann. Logo by Kenny Jeffrey.
  • Definitely looking for opinions on the coloring here, as we go forward. Still trying to decide on a good colorist.
  • edited August 2014
    Art's great. Colors look good. 

    I was on the fence about the logo, but in practice,  I can see that Jim's right. I'm losing the Ts, and the O and L aren't terribly clear, either.
  • Its a rather cool cover. Not simply for the color scheme, but it lacks dynamism.
  • Yes, that's definitely true, Marvin, something I've thought about as well.

    I appreciate all the comments and suggestions from everyone! We'll have to agree to disagree on the logo, but I'm prepared for a 'redo' from a publisher, of course.
  • Preview! Letters by Micah Meyer.

  • Good work. You've put together an excellent team and a concept that may have some pop.
  • Thank you very kindly, Marvin!
  • Hey y'all!

    So I've started posting a Shazam fan comic in the vein of Calvin and Hobbes, with rotating artists. Hoping to make it a weekly thing. You can check out the first installment at my blog or at the Tumblr I set up for it specifically!

    http://heshouldreallyknowbetter.blogspot.com/2014/09/billy-and-tawny-week-one.html

    http://billyandtawny.tumblr.com/

    Hope ya dig! If anyone might want to collaborate - or write your own and have it posted up - please tell me!
  • That looks like a lot of fun!  I could probably find time to do one, if you're interested.
  • Slight technical worry from me… I'm not 100% sure where the Live area falls on these pages but, to me, it looks like you may lettering positioned well outside it. If you're planning on being 100% digital (web, tablet) that's not a problem, but it's going to be an issue if you ever plan to take these pages to print…

  • Jason - I'd love for you to do one! Would you like to choose from some scripts of mine, or would you rather write it yourself?

    Jim - I have no idea what you're saying but that is indeed worrisome! Are you saying that the dimensions of the pages themselves are too big?
  • edited September 2014
    Not saying that the pages are too big — the artwork can occupy a much larger area than the lettering. Out of sheer laziness, I'd point you in the direction of this quick overview of the Bleed, Trim and Live areas of a page…
  • Thanks Jim! You're fantastic, and that's a fantastic resource. I had NO IDEA about any of this.
  • Why don't you send me some scripts to look at? (jasonq@jaqrabbit.com) I wouldn't want to try writing something myself without having a better idea of where you want to go with it.
