A New Era

Fri Jun 20, 2014, 12:28 PM

Yo guys! 

How are you all doing? =D

Big things happening for me this week and today: UP AND AHEAD IS OFFICIALLY STARTED!!! :dance:

Check out your message box tonight, you might get the comic's cover at any time! 
The first page comes on Monday!! 

I know this did take me a long time, and I found way too many problems in my way during it’s making (such as an old computer unwilling to cooperate) and naturally, my incapacity to draw human-made constructions (which is basically the comic’s main setting). 

But I just have to thank you, for absolutely everything you gave me. When I first  started up with the idea, I thought it would be silly of me to try and do something new, but the support you guys gave me was unbelievable. Nothing like this ever happened to me, so I’d like you all to know that if I’m fulfilling a dream now, it was because of every comment, every kind word, every support, every unexpected fanart :heart: and every fan character we ever got on :iconup-and-ahead: (Those are so precious, gosh, I can’t even begin to describe how much l love them!) 

This all kind of happened naturally, and that’s why I find this project so magical. You guys gave life to this universe, and I invite you to enter it now with me. 

If this project ever gets anywhere, know that it was because of you! :heart:

And let this adventure begin!! ^^

Since Bionicle is returning after 5 years of absence, I thought to play with bionicle elements once again, and since I became such a huge Halo/Half-Life fan, more things to play with... So behold my current research X3 What do ya think?

Hey Skailla,
How are you? What programs do you use to make the Over the Mountains and Far Away comic pages. Also, if you would, please tell me your steps on creating the pages once u write your script, I would REALLY appreciate it. 

I'm wanting to make (write and draw) my own graphic novels and get them published. I'm currently working on the scripts for a few of my stories. One story is going to be separated into Issues (like ur Old BBA story) and I already got the script for the first issue done. The story that is going to be separated into issues is going to be on here (deviantart).

Can you PLEASE continue your OMFA story? I want to know what happens next. I also LOVE your OMFA story!

I see you like a few things I like (canines, drawing, Nightwish, Three Days Grace). I would appreciate it if you started watching me, if you'd like.  

Please reply, preferably on my profile. Thanks and ttyl.

Hello, I am Vuk Tempest, voluntary message replier, and friend of Skailla's of course.
1: The program she uses is Adobe Photoshop. To make a page, first you need a story you want to represent in graphic form. Then, when there is a story to contribute to, you can start by sketching out the poses the characters would appear in their respective roles in the story. Remember: A sketch is nothing like the complete piece. From that, you can slowly build up the comic pages. It's recommended to start with the background, and only then the scenery and the characters. I also recommend you to make the panels of the comic page as separate images first, and with the help of masking (a google search may help you find a tutorial) you can put them into the page. A comic is best when presenting a high quality with "straight" lines (aka shakey hands are bad luck), lighting and shadow effects, shading, and of course, the rest (smoke for example). You need to repeat this every page.

2: Sorry to say this, but I may have to quote this for you:
"So, I keep getting a lot of comments on this page demanding that I continue with the comic. I appreciate the fact that you enjoy this story, and I am very grateful that you want to know how this will end.
But I'll not continue it at the moment. Some things happened involving OMFA which truly made me a bit sick of it, and even more than that, I've been working on it since I was 11 years old. Yes, it's been a long time, and I really, really want to do something else now.
I am not abandoning the comic. I can't promise I will come back to it for sure, because I have a very changeable mind, but initially, I really need a break, and a big one.

People are sometimes a bit harsh, so I'd like to make a few things clear. This was done for fun. I never wanted it to become an obligation. I make art to break free from impositions, so I wouldn't like a comic of mine to become one. " - Skailla, on the last page.

This means, no, she will not continue OMFA until further notice. She may continue it, maybe in reboot form. In that case, at worst, she will continue/reboot it AFTER she's done with the whole Up&Ahead lore, which is more than the current comic she publishes from time to time. That could be many years from now. At the very worst tho, as she said she has a changeable mind, She might ultimately cancel it and consider it as nothing more than "something she used to play with as a child". Leave all the decisions to her, that's all I can say for sure.

Thanks for answering my question about how I could create my graphic novel pages. I REALLY appreciate it.
vuk-91 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Student General Artist
Well, you're welcome. And I hope you understand the other answer about OMFA being put on hold.
