Kitbash3d.com Mission to Minerva Entry Drew Spence

November 5, 2022 Leave a comment

Kitbash3d.com has a global art challenge where they have released a free kit and artists are able to use the kit in an animated (motion) or 2D (still) piece. Submit the piece to the contest by tagging Kitbash3D.com (#KB3Dchallenge on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Artstation). Details of the contest rules and prizes are on the site. https://kitbash3d.com/pages/minerva

I discovered Kitbash3d years ago. They were offering high quality model kits that were mostly aimed at high-end 3D users, artists, VFX and concept/story board illustrators. The packages come in different software formats. [3DS Max, Blender, Cinema4D, FBX + OBJ, Houdini, MAYA, Unity, Unreal]. My main software is Daz Studio so I usually download the Unreal or Blender version and export to OBJ+ Texture files. At around $199 USD it’s a solid deal for the amount and variety of pieces that come with any set. For me, there was no hesitation with jumping in on this contest. Their kits were already part of my asset library and the Mission to Minerva offering would be an easy addition.

The follow-up story to the graphic novel The God of Fury took place at an army-like basecamp. I found the overall layout inspirational and some of the elements, like the radar towers, figure prominently in the story. The Transport and Rover are key vehicles. I need a lot of functionality from the assets I use for my comics. Kitbash3d does a wonderful job of supplying models that look great up close and they have now implemented texture sizes as a choice. I’ll be sharing my comic book entry across all my social media profiles. Thank you for your support.

A comic book is a powerful medium of expression that speaks to a wide variety of ideas and emotions across all genres. DAZ Studio is a great tool to generate renders for your creating comic book artwork!

However, it can take a great deal of time in building and rendering those scenes. The Comic Book Creation kit (bundle version) saves you time and energy in providing you with over a hundred renders ready to select from and build your own comic book. This kit includes an extensive video course of over 13 hours of instruction and insights on composing your comic by Drew Spence, a professional comic book artist.

Over 1250 PNG renders of various characters are included across contemporary, sci-fi, and fantasy scenes. The renders come in a selection of styles ready to select, sequence, and compose into your own story.

Drew teaches you how to use and arrange the elements of a comic book:

  • Panels
  • Lettering
  • Word/Thought balloons
  • Captions
  • Sound effects
  • Panels
  • Borders
  • Gutters

He shows you how to…

  • Map a story structure onto a comic book layout
  • Show, rather than tell a dynamic story
  • Progress and express characters through their story arcs
  • Create strong visual appeal
  • Gain a comic book style that fits your story
  • Comprehend comic book elements and use them to your advantage

This is Part 1 of a 3 part Course. There’s also a bundle version available.

The Advanced Comic Creation Course Week 7 Artist Features

November 30, 2021 Leave a comment

Drew Spence from the Dynamic Universe and Digital Art Live presented the Advanced Comic Book Creation series. I was joined by Paul Bussey and Tiffany Gray in a course designed to push your Visual Stories into new and exciting directions. Week 7 featured the works of four artists. Ed LaRoche from Image comics and his series The Warning, Pam Harrison and here series A Deviant Mind and House of the Muses, John McClellan and his Monster of Egypt and John Byrne and his X-Men Elsewhen.

The Warning (10 book series)

An enormous machine slowly materializes in a major West Coast city. Who sent it—and why—is a mystery, understood only by the malevolent beings gliding silently toward Earth through the inky vastness of space. In response, a multinational combat brigade called Gladiator Two-Six is deployed. Outfitted with next-generation military science and weapons, they’re tasked with stopping any extraterrestrial threat that emerges.

Monster of Egypt (Graphic Novel)

International Jewel Thief Jonathan Fox is caught in a vicious game of espionage as he fights to stop a deadly terrorist in this hard-hitting graphic novel.

Deviant Mind & House of the Muses 

Pam Harrison is one of the first and best-known CGI artists in Independent Comics. Her work with the historical fiction series House of the Muses earned her the 2008 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant for Outstanding Series, and she continues her storytelling in a gripping sci-fi space opera adventure, A Deviant Mind, that far transcends its original LGBT audience.

X-Men Elsewhen (ongoing series)

His most famous works have been on Marvel Comics’s Uncanny X-Men and Fantastic Four and the 1986 relaunch of DC Comics’s Superman franchise. During the 1990s he produced a number of creator-owned works including Next Men and Danger Unlimited.

The course should be available for purchase in the Daz Store in December 2021 under Digital Art Live or Drew Spence.

This course is designed for the comic artist who uses 3D Assets, photography and graphic design. This course is designed for the writers who want to polish their storytelling skillset. For the beginner, this course will be a deep dive into comic book telling and for the advanced artist this course will explore new concepts and ideas.
