Thanks, Yncke. I've actually finished the whole thing now and sent it off to the printer. Just a small run for NYCC for now, but it feels darned good to be finished. Here's a piece I just finished up, basically a big color experiment. Lots of things I want to do differently going forward, so this is me trying to figure some of those things out:

Haven't updated this thread in a bit, but I finally have "news" that I can post. Here's my DA announcement:
Just a quick note to say that my book, Echo Callaway and the Knights of Lionskeep, is not only done, but will soon be available in both digital and print varieties (woo-hoo!). I'll do an official release post here as soon as it goes live, but the files are being processed by my distributors already, so it won't be long. I don't have all the details yet, but here is what I can share:
"Echo" is an all-ages fantasy graphic novel, released in chapters (or chapter bundles, depending on length).
This is a completely independent project; created, written, drawn, colored and lettered by me, full of that special creator-owned love that only personal projects really capture.
The chapters will be available as digital download pdfs, or in print, depending on how you like to read your comix.
This first chapter is called "Beginnings", and it weighs in at 34 full color story pages, plus 10 pages of extras.
This "issue" contains awesome pin-ups by fellow deviants trialsze and pencilmachine, as well as a custom font designed by prey74; its a deviantart extravaganza!
Future chapters will be quarterly releases; Chapter 2 is already well underway.
Anyway, I'm chomping at the bit to make the official release. Echo's art folder is here: [link] and I'll be putting up a healthy excerpt when the book goes live.

Thanks, Yncke, and Still_Waters as well. After a furious week of leg-work, the deed is done, my comic is live and in the marketplace! The digital one, anyway; print option is coming in about a month. Without any further ado, may I present Echo's website (which I actually built myself) (with a little help from wordpress in places). And if my charming personality isn't enough to lure you over there, here's a whopping 12 page preview for y'all:
Thanks for looking, and all the great advice and support, Outcasters. This is the first forum I'm posting this in, definitely a sign of how much I've come to enjoy this little corner of the web. Peace,

One evening, Sir Winston Churchill left a pub, drunk as a skunk. On his staggering walk home he met a woman who said.
"Mr. Churchill! You're drunk!" Churchill rebutted as best he could.
"Yes madam, and you're ugly, but I'll be sober in the morning!" Even when drunk, the man had a way with words.

Rorschach, the book is available in print, but its pricey (8 bucks). I usually tell people to wait for larger volumes, but if you are interested, I wouldn't complain about adding to my meager sales : http://www.indyplane...roducts_id=6466
Yncke, here's my description for that faerie design:
"Despite their portrayal in popular culture, faeries are typically a grubby, earthy little creature, cheerfully feasting on bugs and worms, and frequenting dank and smelly little nooks in the forest. If you can befriend them, you might become a little charmed-by-association, but its just as likely you'll be shooing them out of your vegetable garden."
