I finished the Big Damn Book Yay (yesterday night at four, to be precise). I'll let it sink in for another day, then I have to check everything for continuity, add a few remaining tiny details, and that's it. This means, a week off at least. That also means, updates on Yoon's and my crossover comic "Synth", coming soon to a LJ near you. :)
I also, for the first time in over a year, updated my official site or what passes for it. Funny, I have no trouble finding the time to update this journal regularly, but updating that gallery is like pulling teeth. Doesn't help their user-interface is clunky as hell.
While I'm at updating sites, here's some more artwork I scavenged from my olde fansite. Actually I ended up re-scanning those as well. Two more pages of x-files comic, however these are not part of an original story.This was just sample work, a snippet of the episode EBE, in comic format, never intended to be continued. Drawn about nine years ago. I think I already posted them on this journal once, but that must have been ages ago so hopefully most people here haven't seen them before.Read more... )

Last not least, the little vignette that goes with the Smile Time comic. I never got around to adding background like I'd originally planned but what the hell, I'll add it as it is. (Also linked here before).Read more... )
And now I shall zonk out in front of the tv with an ep of NCIS.

So, NCIS... the other day I hunted down the two elusive JAG crossover episodes that spun off the show, and while at it took a look at some of the DVD commentary. Am now toying with the thought of bying a DVD set. And what little fic I read this past month was mostly NCIS. Guess there's no denying it... I like this show. Huh. I like this show a lot. That sure came out of nowhere. FX, with their daily repeats during hiatus, completely sucked me in. (Hey Fox, by the way? This is how you attract new viewers.)
I've skipped almost all fic links during the past month... maybe now I'll find the time to catch up on my reading. But some fic recs did accumulate; will post them sometime this week.

Here we go, the conclusion. I swore I wouldn't touch this comic but I realized I had to change one tiny thing. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] makd for taking a look at the fixed part. And now, without further ado... )

Previous parts: pg 1-10, pg 11-21

Is anyone here in X-Files fandom and can point me to a good active LJ community to pimp this? I'm completely out of the loop - back when I was watching the show, LJ didn't even exist. Heck, most of the web didn't exist.

Thanks to everyone who commented on the first pages, and to [livejournal.com profile] makd for pointing some X-Files fans here; you guys made my day. *pats comic*

Here's the second part. Page 20/21 is a double-pager so I'm posting them together. It looks good on my 19" screen, but I can't tell whether it'll be readable on a smaller screen. Let me know if it's not, I can post those pages separately as well.

previous part
pages 11-21 (ca. 1,4 MB) )

With LJ's scrapbook as storage space I've finally decided to shut down my COLS (crappy old Lycos site) with its annoying ads, and move everything to LJ.

So, I was in the process of moving 'Chrome Magnon', the X-Files comic I drew ten years ago, when I realized that the scan quality really detracted from the artwork. I'm going to re-post the whole thing in shiny new quality. The resolution is pretty decent now, and each page still only around 150K.

This isn't a WIP, obviously, but I'm posting it 10 pages at a time so the posts won't get too huge. One thing: I'm always cool with concrit, only in this case... well, the thing is ten years old and with each glance I see a dozen things that I want to fix badly. But I won't touch it, because there'd be no stopping. And I like to think the important aspects, like story, storytelling, and layout, still stand the test of time (mostly).

Mulder and Scully take off to the woods of Idaho in search of... Bigfoot? (1,5 MB) )

I am once more sorting through my papers. Talk about work in progress. I came across a whole bunch of X-Files character studies. Why should they rest in a folder gathering dust, I thought. Any x-philes among you? (Or perhaps ex-philes...)
