Here’s my design:
Yesterday I received a Priority Mail package from Ka-Blam. Inside…
My snapshot does not do justice to the quality of Ka-Blam’s printing. I’ll be selling these beauties at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland next week.
Those who can’t wait can order copies directly from IndyPlanet.
Robots, Vampires and Catholic High School!
Dragona Lore Smith tries to keep his secret. He also tries to keep his friends.
As he makes one small mistake after another, his world starts to unravel.
Originally four 20-page issues, Lore #9-12 have been reprinted in the form of two 40-page comics. DriveThruComics now has electronic versions in watermarked PDF format. These digital editions present Lore at 200dpi — nearly twice the resolution of the free web comic.
Readers can instantly download the 13MB files for $0.99 each.
Lore Nos. 9 & 10 – $0.99
Lore Nos. 11 & 12 – $0.99
I compiled Lore #9-12 into two 40-page comics and drew these covers for the two reprint issues. I have also relettered Lore #9-11 with my more legible “Lore” font. Both reprint issues will be available soon through IndyPlanet and DriveThruComics.
I drew each of these covers in Manga Studio EX 4.0 on my Motion Computing LE1600 Tablet PC at 1200dpi resolution for a 5.5×7.5″ image. I modeled the pipes, chairs, ceiling and tables in LightWave 3D and imported the LightWave object files into Manga Studio for rendering as background elements. When finished, I exported the layers in Photoshop format as an antialiased 300dpi PSD file. I then used Photoshop for coloring, compositing and text elements.
