Art is looking REALLY great!

Can you give us a summary of what this new webcomic will be about?

Thank you, Sir Domino. (Or, Miss)

Sure, I can do that. 0079, early in the One Year War, Earth is invaded by Zeon forces, and the Torington Base is the main FOB in the the ground operations in Australia. Fresh from the academy, Ens. Harona, and Ens. Crestborne are involved in an assault from a cunning, and brutal enemy leading the Zeon forces. Rise From The Ashes is, as I call it, A Hyper Version of the One Year War, and events afterwords. The story will venture up to at least Unicorn. I am going to take a slight Girens Green take on the story, but not crazy with it.

^___^ Neo, Chris, and SoulBro will be in it, they just don't know it yet

I'm really enjoying these sketches. This sounds like a big project and I'll be very happy to see it get off of the ground and reading those pages! Keep 'em coming guys!

Nice. I'm really liking the head shots. Will Mr-Hayami be doing the mecha/vehicle art as well?

Yes I will, been a really long time but I'm going to practice some and hope they come out right. Since I left high school I really haven't done much so I'm extremely rusty. Just now trying to do this all again and its coming back.

So much for anonymity, huh, Eric? :mrgreen:

Anyway, welcome to the art forums. I'm glad I was able to invite you here. I really admired Mr. Hayami's character artwork, so I thought it would be good to give him and the project some publicity and discussion here.

I am curious to know if the comic will be in color or black and white?

I also think it is cool that you have offered to recreate the fans in the comic. It takes a lot of talent to do portraits. I'm not sure how many of the artists here will go for that (having their likeness in a comic.) However, I do think they may be happy to have some of their original characters or maybe mecha make small appearances, if you would like to go that direction.

Would the two of you like to talk more about yourselves? Like how the project came about, how you chose the setting/subject, and Mr. Hayami's experience with his artwork and techniques? Be sure to check out the other threads and comment there, too. =)

:-3

To answer your questions Sera, we got the comic will be in B/W due to time. If we can find a colorer, Awesome Sauce. The offer to recreate the people in the comic is for fans, of both Gundam, and Pure Science Fiction in general. We are mixing alot ALOTALOTALOT of other influences into the comic. More tactical, more combat, More True Realism into the comic. But, to other artists not wanting their likeness in the comic...then don't send us pics and info? |-3

I've learned early on that the likeness in the comics isn't going to be the characters Custom Newtype Gundam Pilot. It is their face, on a background grunt. My close friends will have lines, but like, "Watch Out!" with explosions going on in the background, or the like. Everyone else, just a face, and that's all. We are also putting popular people into the comic, like Soulbro, Chris, Neo, Tomino, etc etc. Custom mecha won't be in it, due to it being custom, and not in the regular universe.

But, everything I'm saying could be reversed, so who knows :-3 this is all for fun, and fan involvement makes me smile.

Talk more about ourselves? Ok, well, I'm an Awesome guy. I'm from Neo West Virginia, and I am a FUBAR Grade Geek. (FUBAR Grade = Into Just About EVERYTHING) I own 2 cats, Franz Purdenand, and Jean-Clawed, and a puppy, named Haruhi Nano. I've been into robots since Transformers, and Robot Jocks, and Battletech and then got into Gundam when I read about it in an issue of Animerica.

There is an epic story about how I and Bryant, my co-writer for RFTA, got into liking Gundam so much that I will share one day...

How the project came about...

Back in the era of Gundam Wing, our friend Turkey owned a Dreamcast, and he also introduced to us to Mobile Suit Gundam. He told us tales of Char, and Amuro, and he played Side Story in front of us when we came over to hang out. So, from that day on, Bryant and I looked up to the White Dingos Team. We quickly learned of RP's on AnimeX and Gundam.com's forum. We would role-play as our fanfiction characters, Kisho Harona, and Nickilus Crestborne. We met Mike, the artist, on Gundam.com's forum and he called himself Hayami Sniper, named after the Hayami from Blue Sub Six.

Fast forward to 2011, and I and my best friend, Stephalou, are doing a Pokèmon Webcomic, and I get the inspiration one night. A Gundam Themed Webcomic!

And, that's the story...
