    After over a year of camera issues, work commitments and general distraction, I finally bring you a photocomic. A serious one. Enjoy it. I dare you.

    So RiD Megatron is gonna be a good guy? One of the "Three"? The warrior, the knight or the explorer?

    that picture isn't actually about the three, but it'll be explained by the end of chapter one

    Intriguing to say the least, can't wait to meet the main characters.

    Wow, with that kind of a prologue, consider me hooked!

    Can't wait to see the first strips of the comic!

    thanks dila, that sort of thing keeps me going

    this comic will soon be famous for delays, i have the rest of the prologue all but completed, but the next ten or so days i'm either stuck at uni or helping with my sister's engagement party.
    hopefully i can finish the prologue soon, which gives a fair amount of exposition on who's involved, but doesn't give away any major plot points.
    tomorrow(probably) i'll update again with another panel or three that should garner some interest

    wow, delicious 5th page, i must bump it
    so this kinda got neglected after the prologue, due to mad uni/work commitments
    fortunately(?), i am now sick and continue working on it, hopefully the first full chapter will be up by monday, now that i have most of the photos done for it(due to an accident i had to swap two of the characters roles around and do a full reshoot, hopefully it'll work better plotwise)

    for great justice

    As far as spare time goes, I have no longer have any other hobbies besides photocomic making, and even then I can't manage weekly updates. So I know how it is.

    I'll be patient. :)

    Nice start. I heard BW Megatron's voice as I read that, fit perfectly. He is my favorite Megatron, so I can't wait to see what devious scheme he has planned. Now to wait and wonder 'til mid June, but I will most certainly be coming back.

    ok, so i finished the semester and thought great, a time to get the story going
    so i took all the photos i needed, and started editing in photoshop elements(my sister is an arts student so she gets all sorts of editing software free in the course) and then disaster- my car dies
    so i've spent the last month and a half working so i can pay for it to be fixed, and have now done so, but all the free time i would have had to finish the first chapter went into working. now i'm looking over what i did do, and i think i can do better, but will have to wait until summer so i can get the right dusk/dawn effects
    essentially, this isn't really going anywhere until late november/early december
    sorry to disappoint, this is turning out kind of like lost in la mancha
    this gives me a couple of opportunities though, to obtain some more obscure pieces for the cast, and hopefully better capture the aesthetic i'm after


    i can reveal a little bit plotwise though, as a teaser
    much of this is going to be an offshoot from the beast era, but i like the multiverse theory, so a fair few elements from the universe continuity will come into play
    there will be tie ins to every mainstream continuity thus far though
    i believe in minimalism, so the cast is going to start off small, the first chapter in fact only shows two characters onscreen

    that's enough for now
    december 08, it begins

    well it's december, and weather permitting, i'll have the final shots finished for part one tomorrow. also, figuring out photoshop has helped a lot. paint is ok for these void shots, but nothing else.

    i'm aiming for at least weekly updates until i start my next semester, but my other writing project kinda has priority over this one.
