UPDATED Cybertronian Slag by SheepSlave

You've done a superb job here - I like the way you've taken stylistic liberties with the character's outline, and you've nailed the loo...

Yowzah Yowzah! I can't believe my web comic is actually a more than a month old already!

I update the web page just a few minutes ago with page 6, which is a significant page. Why? Because it's here that we FINALLY get to see the main cast - or at least, a good chunk of it - on the actual page.

Kinda took m a while to get there. But I'm hoping that now, for anyone who's been interested in the comic but hasn't quite clicked with it yet, all the important pieces will start to fall into place.

At this stage, I think it's worth mentioning that I'm playing a long game with Broken Goddess Athena. I'm a fan of expansive (but not decompressed) storytelling, so this is how I've played it. BGA was never meant for the web, as you may have guessed.


AND! I'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to everybody who has got behind my little project so far, whether by sharing it around, posting on the site or simply by telling me they enjoy it. That all gives me a huge boost, and I'm happy to see that folks are enjoying it.


You can read the latest page, and the rest of the comic here:
brokengoddessathena.wordpress.…

Alternatively, search for it over on ComicRocket, where you have the option of reading the pages in sequential fashion, which is much preferred, obviously. I'm also in the process of getting it set up over on the Top Web Comics site, so you'll be able to vote for it over there soon (actually, you already can - I just haven't had a chance to work up any pretty banners for it yet.)

Broken Goddess Athena: Synchronicity cover inks by hde2009
Broken Goddess Athena: Synchronicity cover inks
I found the inks to my recently posted Broken Goddess Athena cover image, which you'll have seen as coloured by the amazeballs Mr. Josh Burcham.

This should show you just how much Josh contributed to the cover - I truly feel like a massive fraud putting this up in my gallery alongside his coloured version! I may just have to remove it and see if the young scallywag fancies posting it on his own page instead. Seems equitable, yes?

Anyways! This cover was put together with a combination of pencil sketch and Google SketchUp, all of which was later re-pencilled, inked with a mixture of crowquill, disposable Uni drawing pens and Pentel brush pen and composited in Photoshop. I'm now convinced that Ima completely CRAP artist because of the number of digital corrections I make!

Anyways  standard BGA disclaimer: Broken Goddess Athena is my intellectual property, and copyright of HdE. Do not misuse or misappropriate this work, or attempt to pass it off as your own. I have an ENORMOUS wealth of provenance, so you'd be silly to try, really.

Broken Goddess Athena page 3 preview by hde2009

Whelp! My bouncing baby comic is three weeks old!

I figured I'd post a one panel preview here. You can find the whole of the comic to date here:

Too soon for a web comic update, you say? I beg to differ!

Page 2 of 'Broken Goddess Athena: Synchronicity' went live yesterday. Here be the linky:
brokengoddessathena.wordpress.…

Now, if you're looking at that link and thinking 'that's a boring looking link. I might not bother clicking it', I'll provide you with a few incentives to do so.

There are spaceships.
There is monologue.
Somebody dies.

Yes - just two pages in, and I'm already gunning for James Roberts' crown of 'most killtastic comic book writer on the planet'. I may even keep this up. Heck, at this rate, I may have offed my entire cast of characters by page 23. And then I'll be Tomino-san!

Oh, and did I mention? In Broken Goddess Athena, anyone who dies STAYS DEAD. So, if you're looking for a comic with consequences, you've found one.



AND NOW, A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Broken Goddess Athena NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT. A few charitable individuals have already been beating the drum on behalf of my project, for which I'm very, very grateful. And it's early days yet, I know. But, please, if you like what you're seeing, if you have any regard for me (more specifically, my work) whatsoever, and if you'd like to contribute to the mammoth task of helping me generate a little buzz around my writing, please do tell all your friends about it! Post links. Make forum banners. Post comments on the website. And be sure to click on the 'jump on board!' button at the foot of the website. That will ensure you get email updates whenever a new page or extra content goes up. And it'll help me to gauge how well the comic is connecting with people.

I have big, BIG plans for this comic. But they count for nothing (and will come to nothing) if nobody's reading it. So every little helps.

That's enough mewling from me.

See you later, space cowboys!

Alien marker  doodle by hde2009
Alien marker doodle
I bought myself a set of greytone markers last month, having never used them before, and was dying to start scribbling with them.

By no means decent at all, here's what fell out of my hands onto the paper when I started experimenting with them. Gonna have to try more of this!

Also, has NOTHING to do with the fact that I want to play Alien: Isolation, and have nothing to play it on. Rrrrg!

By the by - this is me doodling. It took all of 10 minutes and it got 3 favourites within SECONDS of being posted on DA, while this piece, which features my collaboration with a pro comics colourist,  is struggling for views:

Broken Goddess Athena cover

Please go give that a look if you stopped by for this doodle. Because it's WAY more interesting. And it's in aid of my personal labour-of-love project.
