The Revival: Issue #6 by MurderousAutomaton
The Revival: Issue #6
Weird--coulda sworn I posted this already!  Anyhoo, sorry progress has been so slow on the comic, but I'm keepin' at it, one page at a time. :) Still having a blast working on this project!  I'm hoping I can start cranking them out faster; we'll see what 2016 brings!

Happy New Year, puny humans! Wink/Razz

Wow, is it really 2016 already?  I feel like I hit a time warp between Halloween and January.  I apologize for not posting anything for the last two months--the holidays and sassy new deadlines kept me busier than expected!

Big things are coming, though!  I finally bought a Cintiq tablet and some new animation software, so I'm going to be playing around with those soon, and posting lots of silly sketches, practice paintings and test animations!  Lots of new techniques I'm looking forward to learning over the coming year, and I hope to apply them to some fun new projects down the road!

And I apologize for all the delays with my publisher, but issue 6 of The Revival is finally out! houndcomics.com/the_revival_co…  Still plugging away on issue 7, and it should be ready early this spring.  I was also fortunate enough to have some of my work featured in the book Dieselpunk: Retro Futures of the All-American Art Deco Years  It showcases the work of many Dieselpunk artists (many of whom are active on dA) and gives some insight into the style and its culture!  Special thanks to :iconstefanparis: for letting me be a part of it! :D (Big Grin)

That's it for now, but there's more to come!  Thanks again to everybody faving and watching--I'll have more for you soon!

Over and out,
TOM
Greetings, fellow spooky-bots!

First of all, Happy Halloween!  Hope you're all enjoying the season as much as I am. :pumpkin:

I also wanted to thank everybody who stopped by my table at the Salt Lake City Comic-Con late last month!  The show was absolutely bonkers awesome!  For anyone who hasn't been out there yet, you gotta see it!  It's about twice the size of Wizard World Chicago or C2E2, just to give you an idea.  But anyway, I met a lot of amazing people and got to rub elbows with some awesome artists.  Hopefully I can do it all again next fall! :la:

My next show (and probably last for the year) will be Mighty Con in Wheaton, IL, on Halloween day!  How cool is that?  I'll have some spooky new prints on hand, and maybe even a bowl of candy on my table.  SpooooOooOOoooOOooky!

Also, Stern Pinball just released their new game based on Game of Thrones!  Check it out: geektyrant.com/news/official-g…  I did a lot of storyboarding and some animations for this game, and the whole thing's looking really cool!  It just debuted at Pinball Expo this weekend and got a great response.  I still haven't had a chance to play it yet, but soon... soon........

And of course, thanks to everybody faving and watching!  You guys rawk!

SPOOOOOOOKY!!!!
TOM

For me? Well I'm almost done the semester myself. Just have one more test to do next week and I'm free until January! :D I'm gonna try to get some more art in too. How about yourself? Got any new art in mind? :)

That's awesome!  Congrats!  Must be a good feeling to get another semester under your belt. :D What kind of art do you plan on working on?

Not much new going on with me, other than being crazy busy at work and for the holidays!  I hope to get caught up with the comic a bit more, and get the first trade paperback figured out in time for a comic convention in late March!  I'll also be getting that Cintiq tablet in about a week, so I'm excited to try that out and maybe start working toward a more painterly style to experiment with.  This winter will also be time to start the Americana short! :la:

Hi Tom, I'd love to feature some of your work on my TMNT blog over on tumblr. I see you have an account on there, but there's only your TMNT Renaissance piece posted. Is this an account you're still using? (before I direct people to it!)
My blog is tmnt-metal.tumblr.com

Hello, Cat!  Thanks so much for wanting to feature some of my stuff!  I took a look at your blog and you've got some amazing pieces in there! :tmnt1: Yeah, sorry about that--I just started that account recently and then got really busy, so I haven't added anything since.  I do plan on getting back to it sometime soon! ^____^

Awesome!  Thanks again, Cat!  That was the motivation I needed to start posting--and now I'm having a blast on Tumblr!  I'm going to try to post art on pretty regularly, if I can. :D
