so...time to talk ravine

the book tanked...

and i mean the book tanked hard.

we are talking about 5000% losses on effort versus profit XD 

on book 2 i received profits that would usually pay for me making 5 pages of a comic. ravine was a 160 page book

so... where do i take it from here

do i quit?

FUCK NO!



the book is good. i have no doubts about that. book 2 is far better than book 1 and book 3 will surpass them both

but the facts are simple. the book never found an audience.

so i have made a decision

i will apply to ravine the same approach i have done  with sunstone

true, i never had any intention of publishing sunstone and it was the fans demand that made me make that decision. and you know what?

fans stepped up!

in fact the way things are going there is a good chance i will in late 2015 onward focus on sunstone very intensively. fans have more than earned it, and for that they have my most sincere gratitude :) 

and now, i am going to do the same with ravine.

ravine is turning into a webcomic first format

don't get me wrong i have no delusions of making any big money from this book but it is a labor of love... looots and looots of love XD

same quality, same style, just, starting in 2015, book 3 will be posted page by page online first and as each book is finished it will be subsequently published in printed format 

so there it is.

this is going to be my third deviantart account now XD it will take some time till i upload the first 2 books as i am reformatting them for an easier read :)

:iconwanderers-of-ravine:

and please, don't think this is a bad thing.

i can't even describe to you the love that i have for the webcomic format.
it is a far more immediate  format that lets me interact with people more often and far easier

well, some delays after the mexico convention derailed my schedule and then i derailed it further by going nuts and makign this issue 31 pages of comic with not a single splash page

sending it in to be prepared for print tomorrow, and we will be  getting back to schedule in januara when both 6 and 7 will hit and then 8 in february.


then i will take a break to plan every detail out because in may/june i am starting a 4 oversized issue mini  called 
death vigil-lost childhood which will  be about how james became a vigil member and how he met and befriended mia

and then after that, in late 2015 death vigil goes ongoing :)

suffice to say 2015 will be one crazy year XD



also i hid most ov the word balloons this time because massively spoilery XD

I have question about Death Vigil. In my country are only available pre-orders for next numbers. Are you planning make packed vol 1 from all 8 numbers or I have to import 1-4 xD

And how many volumes you plan?

First of all I really enjoy your art.

Anyway I just wanted to submit a piece of another "artist" that is just stealing pieces of other artists around, smudging and telling those are his pieces and he just "referenced" another artist. This is the piece:

I Am Death by AbalamAnderson

I'm not sure 100% but I remember seeing this piece face and overall scheme in your gallery time ago or maybe another artist, but he referenced you in its page, so I guess is you.

Your work is absolute brilliant. Art and creativity at finest !!!
The way you represent the personalities in your original characters or in dc comics are awesome too.

Really inspiring!
