Aphelion 0.0 Page Fourteen by turbofanatic
Aphelion 0.0 Page Fourteen

This is the point where Brian is very sure that things have gone wrong. Cantor is weird, and off-putting, but not outright violent.

Hives are kind. That is something that humanity has had to accept, whether they like it or not. It would probably have been easier for us to handle a brutal takeover or a superhuman dictatorship, but instead the hives quietly took control and cleaned up our messes and if we tried to do something without them it became clear that they could guide us to their goals whether we liked it or not. And considering the sins of humankind, including the sanity complex, it seems like that was for the best.

Hives are not perfect though, and have committed terrible things when the alternatives are possibly worse. And one of those mistakes is not as contained as it was thought to be.

Done! I imagine Cantor's face makes a gross sucking noise when it's lifted off the ground.

As you may have noticed, once I finished the Deltavengers 1i comic (available in my gallery if you missed it) I stopped pretty much all work on the Deltavengers. I'm very happy with what I did, but I had pretty much everything plotted out and once that's done I generally don't feel like continuing to play with the story anymore. The joy is in figuring it all out. The only reason Aphelion gets done is because I deliberately leave much of it open to changes as I work on it.
But! Deltavengers was fertile ground, and I wanted something that could also work as a quick comic to make alongside Aphelion, so here's some early aesthetic/style concepts for a new universe, tentatively called "Runners." This guy would be one of the villains, a member of the secret police, capable of running at 45 mph on all fours, and equipped with a venomous bobbit-worm like creature for a tongue.
Of course, the protagonists are about as strange.

 The grand joke about immortality, was that it was a death by degrees. A younger Itzy would not recognize what she had become, she had changed so much

The dragon she used to be was as dead as if she had fallen into a black hole. Bit by bit she had died while something new took her place. The new Itzy, both blessed and cursed with Immortality.

This slow death had occupied her thoughts of late, and soon she would break herself apart, create a thousand dragons where there had been one. Death did not concern her, it had been her constant companion for millennia, as she mourned the naive dragon she used to be.

I haven’t done much digital painting at all over the past few years in favor of inking. Which I’m okay with, over the course of my life I’ve mostly been inking and that’s probably my true art love. I’m slowly trying to do more painting though and it’s interesting to see how much more cel-shaded and sharp it became over the hiatus though.

Also this was a really weird week, in good ways!

The anthology this was going to be in fell through, so I put it all together and am posting it myself!

It's far from complete (this is actually the middle of the comic) and might be confusing because of that. Plus I need to change that first splash page into a single page so everything fits properly, but I hope it's still entertaining!

Big thanks to Ben for telling me how to use Publisher and gently handling all my complaining. <3

Also, in case anyone wants to see WIPs of these pages, plus other sketches, here's the tumblr where I post them all:

When you have the time I'd love to chat again and hear more about your babyface plots and discuss crazy scifi stuff! I have been going through your gallery to find good pictures I can use to practice hone my inking skills with and I am obsessed now. Also, have you seen Interstellar yet? It seems like a movie you would really enjoy!

Hi! I saw your awesome pacific rim art and was wondering if you take requests?

Sorry, I generally don't have time for requests, but you can always make a suggestion!
I'm glad you enjoyed the Renegade Phoenix though!
