From Greatness to Dust and Back Again: Chapter 1 (introduction)


I just completed the first issue of my comic series, “From Greatness to Dust and Back Again”.

Check it out on tumblr!

Summary: “What is it to be human?” A science-fiction and philosophical exploration into what constitutes as a sentient being. Life, love, death, terror, and everything in between. Follow a young Lisovyek man named Aleks as he finds his place in the world- an alternate universe populated by species of genetically modified animals.

Keep an eye out for the next issue in a few weeks. If you like it, be sure to follow the blog so you’ll never miss an update.

Since this is my artist dev blog, I’d like to explain a little behind my process. After putting together my plot outline for the entire series, I started by fleshing out each issue with more elaborate detail. For this issue in particular, I started with the text, “What is it to be human? … ” and then sketched out rough ideas for each board. I then consulted my friend who is much more familiar with comic panels and composition with help on how to refine each board’s layout. I moved to the final “draft” pass, and then a completed paintover. The entire process ranges from a week to two weeks for a single issue.
