Azure pg2 CMYK l by ToolKitten
Azure pg2 CMYK l
second page of the new story created out of my dreams and through an amazing writer named Pat Shand.

Azure is about the physical weight of depression. How the flickering, golden moments of a day can make you feel like you’re flying, and how the darkness can manifest into a nightmarish monster.


This story is being created step by step on patreon, if you would like to see the process of the entire creation of a comic (and how I work specifically) you can sign up on www.patreon.com.neiruffino

drawn and colored by me, coming soon!

prepping WIP tutorial by ToolKitten

the piece was drawn by J.Scott Campbell, Joe Mad and Humberto Ramos. I'm embarking on a mission to pull together an extensive tutorial on prepping group shots for color, coloring group shots and finalizing and unifying a piece with special effects.

It's going to be detailed, and there is going to be a wealth of hard to find information.

You will only be able to get this special package through patreon!

Hello, I am contacting people I have decided to watch and admire to tell them about a project we have underway.

Myself and Traumwelt (visit his DA page here-->nemoalleintraumwelt.deviantart…) have begun creating our first comic book together. It is called Old Harry's tale, and it is a supernatural and philosophical drama. The first six pages of Issue #1 will be submitted to Tumblr and DA

We call ourselves Scapegoat comics and all news of the project will be relayed here at the Scapegoat comics club --> scapegoat-comics.deviantart.co… And I would like all those who watch me to join.

The project is going to be set to a kickstarter which will be linked to the club page later within the month. And all who join the club will have early access to the rewards including the free digital intro comic bening the rules.

If you want to join it is automatically approved, you just need to click a button. If you don't want to, that's fine. It's your choice after all.

Also even if you do not join the club I would be most pleased if you watched this video we made and tell us what you think--> www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvWc6w…

Once again, you can ingore all of this. You have free will after all.

The prints deal on your store for the free prints, is the $100 a requirement before or after the discount that gets applied after purchase?  Wondering how many prints I have to buy.  :D
