NEW ADDITION: ATROXITY

2013-07-22-b01c01s03p06

ABOUT ATROXITY (Grabbed from the site)

Atroxity is visually lush character-driven urban fantasy noir graphic novel in which one man attempts to unravel the secrets of the dark and dizzying city in which he finds himself.  Atroxity asks the question: when cut off from your past and pressed up against a wall, who are you?

Atroxity updates with a new page every Monday morning. Edit by ed – currently on hiatus.

Atroxity is the work of the following gentlemen:

M. Barczak: colors and textures
L. Master: pencils and inks
B. Salisbury: words and themes

With thanks to editor C. Hogarty

GOLEM/BINARY

Have been busy reworking/focusing  GOLEM:DARK AGES which has been long in hibernation – feeling more upbeat about where it is going to the point of a first design sketch for our protagonist.

BINARY4

Will be a two-parter – no title yet, in progress.

The woman in the refrigerator

page12-2

It’s been a while since the last update. Originally I said there’d be 6 pages but that has increased to the point where I’ve completed 6 with another 5 to go. Did have a bit of downtime due to commitments but have been ticking things over.

I had a woman in the refrigerator moment. bad idea – this will not be a repeat of KINGDOM 6. Will revisit the page once I’ve finished illustrating  what is essentially men whaling on each other.

So 5 complete. 6 to come.

TEST

I became sick of not being able to read the story on my Nexus7, so I’ve started modifying the engine to show the story at the right size for the browser. On an iPad it was never a problem, but the N7’s a bit skinnier.

Theres a test page up with a few pages of story http://theblackgates.com/test.html while its working 90% on the N7 now I’d be keen to know how it works on say the Galaxy Note II, S4, 920 etc, or other tablets. Comments appreciated. Will finalise and push live after the more important artwork push.
