LISA FRANK IRON MAN
The new Hulkbuster Iron Man suit is pretty cool, but it makes me sad that pretty much all the Iron Man suits are actually really boring designs. Look at all the mech/exosuit designs in Manga. Now look at Iron Man. Pretty pathetic. There’s unlimited special effects in comics, why ever go with boring?
Not that this is that much better. I’m just trying to hash out the minimal basic suit, I’ll try to go weirder in the future. There will be attachments and other versions, and of course, a transforming car. Because that’s what he’d do.
Deltavengers Tony Stark just sits in the chest because he lost an arm and both legs, so there’s nothing but machinery in the limbs. Also he’s not as crazy-rich as he is in the comics, so it’s supposed to look like four car manufacturing robots bolted to a frame. Because that’s what it is. Tony just supplies the proprietary power and control systems.
Why is he not as rich? Stark Industries forced him into quitting after his accident. So he founded a new smaller company. And Stark Industries is using his old work to sell robots to the military…
Page eight is now finished for real, I took a little break to do other stuff because I was getting sick of it.
HAATCs are one of my favorite designs. This one’s showing off the pulsejets used for roll control (HAATCs are LOUD) and off in the distance you can see some of the flaps used to redirect airflow into the rear fan during forward flight. Despite first looks, active control systems keep the HAATC quite stable.
Superficially, members of both orders Airbus and Boeing are very similar, and can be difficult for beginner planewatchers to tell apart, a stunning example of convergent evolution.
Internally, however, their different ancestries are clear. Shown here is a 700 IDW of the 737 family, a common member of order Boeing. Pay particular attention to the spinal length, the most reliable way to tell apart the 700, 800, and 900 genera at a distance.
I needed a logo/badge for my stuff, and here it is.
I haven't been feeling too great lately, so I apologize for not really responding to stuff. Hopefully I'll feel better soon
I’ve been thinking a lot about narrative and storytelling lately. There’s been some good writing lately on the fact that, because narrative is a wholly artificial construct, it makes sense to warp and twist that portrayal to better get certain ideas across to an audience. Since comics work (at least on one level) as a visual representation of reality it’s easy to forget that.
I think, given that words are already an abstraction, literary folk are closer to that truth, and maybe it’s one reason I had such issues with writing the novel that eventually became Aphelion. I just wanted to stick readers in a room and have them look around and notice all the logos were weird and the phones are strange. I wrote too much and never moved along with the actual story. With comics I could put all that in the background and let readers peruse it at their leisure.
The idea is that Aphelion is witnessed more than it is narrated (how pretentious!), Deltavengers is straight-up-narrated, which I find difficult, but the learning process is immensely enjoyable.
