REBOOT

 

NOTE: Having this thread done I felt there was no need to create a new one. Recycle, guys!

NOTE 2:  The previous comic entry can still be found in the spoiler below.

 

Like I said, I planned an entirely new storyline. However, I decided it not to follow the previous plot, so this is completly different from it. This plot will be simpler and faster, more personal and hopefully more interesting and fun that way, so anyone who wants to read an APB based comic is welcome here.

Happy reading!

Lovely. For some reason I love the Lilith on the rail scene the most. Reminds me of those good old Lego comics I was reading as a kid.

Still, the layout and speech bubbles could get a little bit more of love. Outlines are too bold.

Thank you! But please, put your projects as your first priority! I wouldn't want anyone to put aside their ideas for mine :D

Lilith scenes were extremly fun to write and render. As for the 2D edition, as said in the other thread, just covering for Neku while he is busy :D

This is great stuff, Caza. It has simple story with mysteries that every good comic needs.

 

Of course there's always a room for some constructive criticism...

Spoiler

 

Overall, it was totally worth the wait. Hopefully we'll get more chapters and see how all things play out.

I won't say much about the 2D part since my 2D editing level is 0, hopefully this was just and exception and in future chapters a 2D editor will take care of all those aspects.

 

Regarding the 3D, that section where they are all together, guilty. You will find a lot of mistakes and changes from frame to frame, like lights, poses and even characters (Kyle's model changes) long story short, this was me working new render and light techniques, so I apologize if I dropped a bit of quality ^^" 

 

The hoodie is just meant to be a big easter egg, wasn't really planning whether it would exist or not in APB's universe.

Some news! Chapter 2 has begun. This time, Kyle is taking care of the writting process. You have all the info in the spoiler box in the OP. Also, Whiskey has joined the 3D team and has already set up all the civilian cars, as well as come SPPD cars and some contacts. Also, he made the promotional poster for Chelly!

Enjoy!

Little updates, in case you don't follow what goes on in Exporting APB Characters thread. Episode 2 will be set in the actual San Paro, this means the amount of "remade" and "faked" streets will be reduced as much as possible. To do so, I've started picking some pieces from San Paro and setting them up in blender. This process can take from two weeks to a couple of days, but the more it's created, the more resources there are for the future.

A huge part of episode 2 will take place in the Needles, Financial, specially this zones:

I'm hoping this will bring more of the APB soul to the story and it's progress.

Hey guys, update time!

 

A lot of behind the scenes work has been going on lately, but I do have some progress that I can share freely!

 

First and foremost, I have recently finished exporting the San Paro Port Authority building from the Waterfront district.

I've also been busy setting up more of the contacts for use in Blender, so look forward to seeing more of them in the next chapter!

 

And finally, introducing the newest member of the cast:nK6fu9p.png

 

Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks!

UPDATE ON CHAPTER 2 AND THE REST OF THE SERIES

 

Changes in chapter 2:

-Added Enforcer arch

-Added characters: Tobii, Elsa, Azulyta and Whiskey

-Changed title and cover

 

Changes in the series:

So, because this is my last year in uni, I'm extremly busy these days and will be in the next months, which is why I decided to release the chapters in sections instead of all together. This way, you get content every few months, chapters get to be longer and more characters get to be introduced, like it happened in chapter 2.

 

As you can see above, Whiskey, Jenz and I have been working on setting up zones from San Paro. We are also working on the interiors of some of those, so expect some missions to happen inside.

In case anyone checks this, I've decided it's time to kill this project. I'll leave the whole story in a spoiler so that if someone doesn't want to read the full thing can jump to the main point:

Spoiler

Team was getting smaller and the project was getting bigger and I also had a huge loss of interest and motivation.

I will continue "a" comic, following what it's actually posted, but nothing to do with the initial plan, not with people who auditioned, it's gonna be more of a personal project, smaller. I think anyone who is really and truly interested in it will contact me and try to get a fit, but yes, this attempt of a big community project has to say bye, maybe things will change in the future, but for now, R.I.P.

More than funds it's about personal motivation. I've spent a lot of time on this project, I left out other stuff and ideas to dedicate to it and the result wasn't satisfactory or worth it. Biggest mistake was making it so big with such a small team, but that happens

It's cool, chief, you did a good job.

Pitty so many great ideas go down either for the lack of public interest, or support from the devs. No reason to keep pushing, when there is no feedback.

Creativity and community's dedication to host their own events and such is fading away, and nobody can or wants to do a thing about it.

Just in case you have any unreleased renders, you can share them here. People always appreciate pictures of their avatars. :)

Sure, I'll make an album with the renders already done. I need some time to think, but I'll probably continue the story from this point, only much simplier :D

Don't say it was a mistake. It might not have ended the proper way this time but I'm sure you learned a lot in the process, and I doubt I'm the only one who enjoyed what you've done either! Whatever you do next, I'm sure it will be just as awesome!

Thought about just an Alice Bow Headband thing, but it's kinda too late to go back on that, and also I think most people seem to identify me with cat ears anyways.

EDIT: Always forget the additional stuff

Big thanks here to Whiskey for the Prentiss street and the club.

Another big thanks to Jenz, for his amazing tips in the page making.

Whole thing took around a week to plan and render. Nick needed 7 different textures for the scars and bleeding process

@Caza

u need the WhisketTF touch for crop the images and point of view angle.

 

is like a ballet theater shown on TV, Caza is the coreographer but the montage/photo director should be WhiskeyTF. 

with the Caza permission i try to explain how i would optimize:

24yut6c.jpg

 this kind of size allow to focus the action and the chars, the blood added is for create a blood splash reaching the camera glass. there is also space for a little talk cloud.

I guess it's about personal preference. I personally prefer bigger frames, specially for action scenes. In my case my attention tends to go first to the coloured big texts, so that's like the main action point of the scene, that way you get to express a few things in their corporal language that would be hidden if too cropped :)
