    Edit:

    For those of you who don't want to wade through all the postings, I will be including links to download PDFs of the first three Chapters here. HUGE thanks to LizRandom for all her hard work in converting and correcting these!

    Chapter 1
    Chapter 2
    Chapter 3
    Chapter 4


    Well, it's finally time to begin. I apologize for the graininess and occasional lack of focus of these shots; My camera isn't the best. Still, I've got the first chapter plotted out, so it's just time to knuckle under and do it.

    So, without further simpering on my part, here's...

    Whoa! I can see why it took you this long to post up your comics: You were honing your GIMPing skillz. And the result is just WOW. :eek: 

    Also, having the Shinkis appear in your very first strip is just sweetness. Very well posed too I might add. :thumb 

    Looking forward to future awesomeness!

    EDIT: The pictures look perfectly fine to me, sharp and bright.

    Thanks guys!

    I wanted to make sure I could pull off the effects I wanted, and guys like Dila, Pun3X and Shane set the bar pretty high. I had to do a fair number of test shots to make sure I figured out how to do effects like transformation, energy blast, fliers, etc.

    It was a lot of fun putting this first few panels together, and I'll have the next installment soon!

    This is a great start to your comics! The glowing engines and flight effects you gave Skywarp were really well done; along with the special effects for Strarf's sword!

    I didn't get as much done today as I hoped, since I got home late, but I got a few crucial shots done, and the effects are coming nicely. Should have a new post Wednesday. But for right now, how about a teaser?

    Did I mention I love Strarf? :p

    Articulated hair rocks! Looks so much more dramatic with that wind in her hair effect.

    Why is she using Arnval's sidearm though? Doesn't she have her own piece?

    There's an in-story reason for it. Relates to why she's facing down a fully-armed F-15E with only a handgun, instead of her full arsenal.

    And here's the next installment! Again I apologize for the quality... it's tough to get consistency out of my old blister camera. I'm going to treat myself to a new camera this month I think.

    Lucky for them F-15s aren't designed for ground attack.

    Actually, the F-15E Strike Eagle is designed for multimission air superiority AND ground attack. It's basically the variant designed to be able to do anything.

    True, the F-15 was originally designed with the 'Not a pound for ground' philosophy, but the airframe is EXTREMELY adaptable.

    Granted, I'm ASSUMING the seekers are F-15E's, but the E is the most recent and advanced variant, so I figured that's what they were. Besides, if all your opponents are cars, what use would it be to be a pure air-to-air fighter?
