Just wanted to post a note, hope you all like my story and art and other shit so far
Regarding art and story:
I definitely have more where that came from.. heaps more in fact, it's just going to take time
I'm happy to say that recently I was able to timeline my whole series of sagas.. what a relief! This shit has been in my head for decades- and I of course know the general procession of events but to actually get it down on paper in a timeline format. Now I am in the process of finalizing (or fleshing out) the specifics. I have refined things since 10 years ago.. since 15 years ago und so weiter..
Why am I doing this (my sagas)? Well it's simple really- I want to show myself I can do it, for one thing. Secondly, I think, if the stories are conveyed properly, it will be a good series- maybe a series that a lot of people will enjoy. Thirdly, when I envision these dramas, I already see them in my minds eye as animation and it drives me crazy not being able to transpose that onto a movie screen, sometimes static illustrations just can't capture how the scene would play out. Not only do I see the scenes, but I hear the sounds and music- MAN! if it's done the way I am envisioning it- it will be epic, and emotional as hell.. super tense scenes with kick ass bizarre f--king sound effects.. drives me crazy man! Not being able to get these scenes out.. Plus I'm trying to introduce something a bit new and different, to help give audiences a break from rehashed same old shit... I'm offering epics and sagas, and dramas, that I hope will whisk the viewers away in the currents of emotion like riding a comet. That's how I'm seeing this in my head- lol.. oh and lastly- Inside my mind it seems like a long saga- but once i start plotting out the episodes I want to see if actually is epic? Does that make sense? The term epic is supposed to mean 'very long'.. lol like Epic Poems have over 200 verses to them.. that's Epic.
Man! I wish I had a team! Just a team, it's not asking too much.. The team should include: A handful of writers; a whole freaking department of editors (cuz baby, I needz 'em!); some background illustrators (preferably new up and coming artists who want to get there shit out there) maybe some digital artists who can work the Manga Studio side of things (only because I'm not set up for that shit now); Uh.. oh yeah, some freaking animators and voice actors! And maybe a couple of Lawyers to handle copyright shit.. oh and a publisher.. someone who will get these stories printed
And I'm still wrestling with HOW to portray the stories? I mean- damn! I can draw it, comic book it, graphic novel it- live action it, shit I can even see these stories as a CGI movie or a simple flash animation for crying out loud..it would sure be easier for my amputee characters doing CGI as opposed to digitally removing a live actors limbs.. (which I don't care how good they get at it, it's never going to be the same as an actual amputee).. so much to do.. so much to do..
You see, I have ideas, vision! Don't worry I'm not arrogant- I'm just super-excited. I always had this dream of taking in new artists and creating new and different ways to show the story. My story world in fact, is made with new artists in mind! by new I mean artists who want to get their shit out there! Think about it- it's an alternate reality earth.. you can have a chance to showcase your ideas (like clothing fashion, or vehicle design or gadget design, or some company name you envisioned..) in a world where you don't have to worry about the Brand Names we are all used to. I'll give one example then I will stop- let's say there was no thomas edison, he got killed when he was five years old... so who got the credit for the light bulb? Tesla! DUH! LOL.. but let's say that Tesla was never shut down by fuck-face J.P Morgan (i'm buring typing that bastards name btw) well how would our world be today if Tesla's systems were refined and modernized? YOU SEE! This world awaits you young creative artists and illustrators! Well, that was my dream anyways..
Okay, bye for now..
