Force Six Season II and III Wallpapers

Desktoppers and Force Six propers

I saw the Griffin Avid profile on ArtStation and noticed the Force Six Season I Wallpapers product. I would have sworn I made, at least, a Season II package and had vague memories of creating one. A hard search led nowhere and maybe I was picking up on loose memories of creating the bonus art for the Seasonal collections- that’s the big book that combines an entire season’s worth (about 10 different episodes) of comics in one …big collection.

There’s always extra art left over- ideas that didn’t work out, alternate shots, panels I never used and renderings that have a different look when taken out of context. Re framed, they serve as wallpapers- little reminders of the season’s best moments and greatest adventures. We have a video trailer that shows off a few choice pieces. They can be purchased from our ArtStation store and of course the Patreon already received their packages. Thank for supporting The Dynamic Universe.

The Force Six comic series can be purchased on comiXology.
