Rones: The Red Forest

Four years in the making, Rones: The Red Forest received a limited press run in August 2008. This is the first chapter in the story about the death and life of the red forests of Tzarthanzia. The Red Forest represents my first full comic venture in over 5 years. This also represents the culmination of a digital illustration style that I have been developing since I first came up with the idea for this book back in 2004. I hope to post a link to an online version of this story soon, but if you are interested in obtaining a printed copy of the first chapter please email me at james@studiohelix.ca.

The Corks

Thursday, October 19, 2006 posted by james

The Corks began as support characters in the Ronin Bu and Mez story, but spun off with a comic strip of their own because their popularity among our rather limited readership was astounding. Additionally we had some publications asking us for some strips to publish. Daniel MacKillican and I wrote and produced a half-dozen strips through 2003-2004.

Here’s the first strip we produced:

Mez Character Study: 2004

Mez is a character I created and developed while in High School. The concept for the character is that he is a prototype war machine that never completed his systems setup, and so doesn’t know just how powerful he really is. He travels the galaxy looking for work. In the inaugural series he found work as a bouncer at a bar on one of the many alternate Earths.

This image created in 2004 is representative of the cartoony style I began developing that year. The drawing was originally a hand sketch which I then completed in Illustrator. The hard lines and colouring in illustrator adds to the cartoony and robotic look to these illustrations. I carried this style through to some of the more recent work featuring Bu & Mez, the Corks, and the 2008 Red Forest story.
