JG Creator Notes
This is another comic I created in 3D using Daz Studio. I had so much fun creating The Commander Series in 3D that I decided to go for another one.
The Life-Taker is an idea I had kicking around in my head for years and I just never got around to doing it. I read a lot of fantasy novels and I’m always thinking of a story or two along those lines.
Well, a few months ago I was playing around with Daz Studio and I came up with the character’s look using some mostly free props. I ended up replacing the textures on a few of the items, but aside from that I didn’t do anything too advanced.
Unlike The Commander Series, I didn’t opt for a cartoony look, but I think this still lends itself to a comic style of storytelling.
Here’s the original piece I created a few months back. It first debuted on my Facebook page.
And here’s a “behind the scenes” look at one of the panels from todays comic. As you can see it takes a bit of work in the 3D program and in Photoshop to get to the final image.
So that’s all for today’s episode, but I still have some stories kicking around for this character. He may see a return to Monday Comics sometime in the future.
Let me know what you thought of this one in the comments. Until next time!
