Progress on After Hours: Part 2

Hey there, guys!  It's been a couple of weeks since my last update on this project.  I wanted to give you a status update and what my plans are for it.

I've completed 42 pages of it so far -- all renders, including the cover.  It's in 16:9 widescreen format and will have comic book box narration told by Nathan instead of a text story accompanying it.

I'll be releasing it first as a PDF (for $3 like the first After Hours) and then a week later, release a free blog version minus some bonus panels that will only appear in the PDF.

Thanks for your interest, everyone!  It should be ready to go in a few days at the most.

Nathan and Deshaun: Wrestling Wear

Howdy, everyone!  I finished setting up the beach environment where Nathan and Deshaun will battle the Brazilian Bodyslammers.  I've also updated the two studly marines for this requested prequel of After Hours.

Here they are in their wrestling wear, clad in patriotic tank tops (which will be removed when they get into action) and trunks.  Nathan sports the stars, while his close buddy, Deshaun, proudly wears the stripes.

In the opposite corner, Fábio and Gabriel are stretching and strategizing as they wait for the match to start.  Near the ring, on the high balcony where they'll wrestle, also sits a king-size bed and a few toys for some fun after...

The Brazilian Bodyslammers (Fábio and Gabriel)

I've been hearing more and more calls for a new story based on the Brazilian Bodyslammers and their match against Nathan and Deshaun, mentioned in my tale After Hours.  So here is Fábio and his twin brother, Gabriel!

The duo from Rio de Janeiro are professional wrestlers who love taking on any challengers foolish enough to step into the ring with them.  Their international opposition is swiftly dealt with and given a hot welcome from Brazil.

I'm kicking around ideas in my head for a potential story.  I might retcon it to take place under a beautiful sunny day on a secluded beach with lots of tropical foliage around them.  We'll see how it goes.

What do you guys think of Fábio and Gabriel?

Tarben, Son of Hjalmar

For 19 years, Tarben has lived alone with his father, Hjalmar on their small settlement.

Hjalmar had been a fearsome warrior in the army when his beloved wife, Eira, became pregnant during his last return to home.  Late in her term, she had fallen ill with fever, prompting Hjalmar to rush home.

The village doctor and midwife assisted Eira and Hjalmar in the delivery of their baby, but moments after they had given their new boy his name, Eira succumbed and passed from the mortal plane.

Shortly after Eira's ceremonial cremation, a heavy-hearted Hjalmar retired his helmet and spear and left the village with Tarben for a new life.

A happy and healthy buck, Tarben idolizes his father in every way he can.  While Hjalmar hunts beasts and gathers meats and herbs for their home, Tarben has become skilled in the ways of cooking and sells their excess food at a marketplace near their home.

Rematch: Alexi vs Gorilla [PDF]

After a year between their last encounter together, Alexi Volkov and Gorilla George Brogan are ready to step back in the ring for their big rematch!

This exhaustive 149 page remake of Rematch: Alexi vs Gorilla is new in almost every way and has been given dozens of enhancements on top of the complete graphical overhaul.

There are now many new panels intermixed in with the original story to beef up the tale, as well as an entirely new prologue before the main story and a new epilogue for the alternate ending.  Also included are bonus materials and panels at the end, including a profile section of characters mentioned in this story.  For those of you who are curious about Goliath, Gorilla's tag team partner, he's now seen in the profile section along with Ryan's newest version.

Like the remake of Hercules vs Sergios, I've created a standard (9:7) format to go along with the default widescreen (16:9) edition.  Both are exactly the same, but optimized for whichever ratio you prefer viewing.

I've spent an incredible amount of time polishing this story far beyond what the original vision was, and I hope that you guys will enjoy it.

Thanks so much for your support!

Rematch: Status Update + Title Screen

2015-04-20 Update: I've completed all of the pages (total of 149; breakdown of them coming soon) a few hours ago and have begun the process of converting them to PDF.  This always takes me hours to finish and quality check before release, but I should be done sometime today.  Keep a lookout for it!

Hey there, guys.  I just wanted to make a quick note about Rematch's progress.  I've completed the canon ending from start to finish tonight and am beginning work on updating the alternate ending and adding in some extras shortly after that.

I'm hoping to have it done by Sunday night, but I'm not sure exactly when it'll be up for sale.  Also, I'm looking to offer this one up for a small $5 USD, so that should be nice!

Here's the finished title screen (of the widescreen version) for you in the meantime.  Stay tuned for more!

If you're interested in the origins of this story arc, it begins with Alexi battling Ryan in The Cold Wrestling War.  Rematch: Alexi vs Gorilla is the direct sequel to Olympian Knockout.  You can get a copy of both of these tales of muscle in my Selz Store and in my Lulu Spotlight!  Thanks as always for your support!

Rematch Progress

Hey, everyone!  The weekend is coming up pretty fast and I wanted to show the latest WIP panel I've got done in Rematch: Alexi vs Gorilla.  I've been working on the script in between rendering and have the text about halfway done.  It's coming along well!

I'll have more info on the project soon!

Tarzan Trades by Unknown Wolf

The super talented Unknown Wolf did these two awesome Tarzan pieces for me as a trade and I'd love to share them with you guys. :D  The first one I actually had sitting on my computer for a couple of months, the second was finished tonight.

Many thanks to him for these and giving permission to share 'em!  The first is Tarzan subduing a couple of poachers in Africa.  The second is Tarzan giving the beat down to the Cimmerian, Conan, who's sporting a huge erection.  I'd say he's enjoying his time bonding with the big jungle stud!

The New Belt

Like a lot of this remaster for Rematch: Alexi vs Gorilla, I've given the championship belt owned by Alexi a drastic makeover.  It now has a gold finish and is bejeweled in sapphires and diamonds with a winged crown in the center plate.  Definitely fit now for the king of the ring!

Seen here holding it up is the new remodeled referee, now with the name Axel Boomer.  Also seen is the new arena in the background.  It's been revamped to be bigger and better from the arena I made for Halloween Night Monster Fight.

And then there's Gorilla eying that belt like a hungry wolf.
