Lunar Space Colony Character Designs

After a bit of a break between projects to focus on developing my skills, I’ve started Lunar Space Colony in earnest. I decided that I’m going to publish the project online in weekly episodes as vertical comics instead of print sized pages. Printing my last project was a good learning experience, but I want to instead focus on accessibility and publishing regular chunks of the comic.

After taking some time to think about it, the power and ergonomic implications of digital started to really appeal to me. I don’t have space for a drafting table or a setup that would serve me best for traditional art. But I do have enough space for a tablet. I’m going to write more about this switch soon.

I stumbled across it at the bookstore while looking for books on illustration and comics. I decided to give it a try, and to my pleasant surprise, the book has been fantastic.

I’m just starting out and only have four months to pull from, so I’m not overly confident with my ability. Nonetheless, here they are!
