I know its been a while…LOL but I havent gone a anywhere. Where have I been you say? BUSY CREATING! Or as close to that as we can get. So much to talk about and so little space in which to do it…or risk boring you into a most annoying death. Did I mention we are THIS close to Website launch?!?
Lets just jump right into it then, shall we?
So what do you think thus far? My parter Shah and I have come a long way in a short time (if 4 years is a short time and 10 years is a long time) and it’s all just getting started really… lets quickly recap all thats happened in a few months, and whats to come by way of…I dont know…WEBCOMIC and Website….A possible San Diego Comic-con appearance…well a least in printed spirit lol.
Most recent would be out delving into the Logo Abyss, you’ve noticed (we hope) our attempt at subduing the corporate beast with an identifiable Logo of sorts…even though it’s truly not a WOW yet, it’s our attempt at pouring all that our QWIXOTIC universe is…into an single, identifiable Image…it will of course take some time to get it down to it’s basic science, or pure essance…perhaps a little less medievel…we shall see what H20 has in store for us (the creators) and you ( the brilliant audience) in the next few months as we reveal the nature of our beast to you.
As tragic as saying goodbye to our monochromic girl may be…her full color rebirth drives me into a state of bliss. Vince Sunico has outdone himself breathing conceptual, and green-hued goodness into our girl Qwynn! There was a comment some time ago concerning Qwynn’s hand looking a little too manly. I replied stating that the observation was true…but that’s the beauty of her special talent. The more manly, or well endowed her hand, the better to strike you down with…so many unstoppable possibilities, don’t you think? I love the putrid, forgotten city of industry envisioned in the full color shot of our girl, and its translation into digital wonder, care of our artist Vince…Still… LONG LIVE THE BLACK AND GRAY! lol. We may go back to those trusty tones in time.
Why am I being so cryptic? Am I just covering for a design flaw in our main character? Guess you’ll just have to wait and see…and by the way the wait will not be too much longer, *he smiles and licks his chops* 😉
Our final image for the S.O.S Soldier became less henchman, and more human. Besides the mighty, hairy forearms commented on some time ago, the human essence has been captured. we wanted to see past the uniform and all the “gear”, into the heart of the human behind the mask, if you will…The S.O.S Soldier has become more of what we wanted…and less G.I JOE/Cobra. Down to the last detail including the S.O.S LOGO on the belt buckle. So here we have human characteristics with a full back story, personal reasons for joining and doing the biding of the Server, their own lives and families at stake, running the gauntlet.
As for our girl Qwynn, we have seen her in black and white, black and gray, full on blow your mind color, and broken down into head turns and body shots…is it radiance and magnificence yet? Soak it all in…better yet, subscribe and let it percolate like a slow trickle into the senses as we rev up for WEBCOMIC launch real soon!
So first things first… who missed me?! I know I definitely missed you… anonymous, faceless, visitors of my blog, recognizable to me only through your e-mail ID’s and avatars when you comment. 😐
Anyways… I wasn’t here last week, as I mentioned the week before I’d be super incredibly busy planning things for the launch of QWIXOTIC. And I was. But this week I can actually show you the progress that’s been made with some of those things. I have the first mock up of a logo or marketing material that we’ll promote prior to the launch.
I know. It’s not purely ‘wow’… but it’ll get there. Keep in mind it’s just a first draft that I’ve gotten so far. I’ve some very cool boys working on this, and hopefully they’ll give me another draft by next week with the modifications I requested.
Till then, lemme know in the comment below what you think of this as a logo. And till then, I’ll see you next week… or maybe Gui will. We’ll see. Peace out Qwixoticans!
