I decided I didn’t have enough time to do fully painted pages, so this one will be in black and white. I’m trying to format the pages so that they can be printed on standard 8.5X11 pages. I’m hoping to try to get a PDF up that people can download and just print the comic out. We’ll see though.

The technique I’m using consists of doing most of the lines on paper then importing them (via bad photos right now – sigh) into Painter where I finish them.

Here’s the first page:

Khaoc vs. Walden Bunny

January 19, 2011

This is a kinda random image I worked on today. There is a Walden Bunny character strangling Khaoc in it. Mostly I wanted to try to see if I could make something in a comic form very quickly. This took me about 4 hours, so I think it’s a success. Instead of Dampurs Kline, I am going to make a few Khaoc vs. Walden shorts – fully “painted” like this image.

I think me and my brother decided on Khaoc vs. a giant over-the-top Walden destroyer bot, and Khaoc vs. fallen Waldenite soldier zombies.

As for this image, if you look on the bunny’s shoulder you’ll see the Walden “Smiling ‘W'” logo. It’s not as legible as I’d like but it’s a grinning toothy mouth in the form of a “W.” I guess the “smile” aspect acknowledges  Captain Smile-A-Long’s founding of the Walden Corporation.

Waldenite Royalty

A portrait of some Waldenite elite types. Digital inking in Painter.

Just having fun with this one. I plan on getting a lot of these digital inks done before the revamp. It’s called Ol’ McCheesy Did A Kill. I think I want to make him a Walden character. Might have to change the hat, though.


I’ve been experimenting with making convincing brushstrokes in Painter without having to scan/import real images. I’ve been using the Liquid Ink layers a lot and when you combine them with other overlapping normal layers, the effect can be pretty good.

Here’s one such attempt:
