Aries Sky Chapter 4 Update

2014-07-25 19:11:51 by Kel-chan

Chapter 4 has been started, It's kind of the obligatory anime/manga flashback-isode to build context, introduce character relationship and setup plot things for the future. Therefore it's not as action intensive as the previous chapter.


You can view the entire manga so far here : http://www.inkblazers.com/manga-and-comics/Aries-Sky/detail-page/7194?lang=en


and It's also on my page in the art section, although that can be a little convoluted to sort through in order.


Feel free to donate to my patreon if you're so inclined http://www.patreon.com/user?u=102503






Theres a few new characters, This is Rock's dad Willem. Since I uploaded too many pages today I'll add his bio page and the missing page tomorrow.

You animated Extraction in Photoshop?! I'm no expert, but that sounds ludicrously difficult... yet the results were damn fine looking (aside from the niggles I pointed out in the review). You're still a big hero to me!

Do you have a Paypal I could donate to? (Forgive me if I've asked this before, and not ponied up a single dime)

I decided to use photoshop because I was tired of flash constantly crashing- I could never preview my work since it would constantly crash or give memory errors. Also the files would get ludicrously large since I did it frame by frame.

But I finally found after all these years a technique that results in what I visually want it to look like.

I'm going to try another action anime short to test some other aspects of this style

It actually didn't take that long to do it in photoshop- What took long was, once again- I did about 1/2 of it in flash starting in january. After messing with all the issues I decided to restart and redo it in photoshop and it took about 3 weeks to finish up

Page 83 is missing, or the numbering is wrong, but it goes from 82 to 84.

Kel-chan responds:

@Doomroar Better safe than sorry, good looking out! Haven't been able to keep up with the saga lately, but the artistry seems to be improving!

Kel-chan responds:

holy carp that donation! If you ever want an animation or poster or something just lemme know! I can make 3D models from scratch now too if you want something!

Initially I was against things like patreon and donations but someone told me its a good way to gauge what my actual art skill is worth to people and serve as a motivating factor to make better things. Free market is the best motivator

Thanks alot!

Can you tell me what software you use for 3D?

Kel-chan responds:

for the extraction vid it was MMD/PMD editory and sketchup to make custom models.

For those weapons in the art portal that was sketchup and then rendered in iclone
