APB fan comic book

Recommended Posts

I am making a fan comic book using the bios from the contacts. I think it would be interesting because i'm sure a lot of the lore of this game is overlooked, so having a visual biography will be cool thing to make. Same way Overwatch has comics for the backstories of some the characters.

 

I definitely want to do a story on Tiptoe and her brothers. I read it and it's a solid and interesting story. I'm sure the other contacts have awesome backstories too. 

 

I plan on making it a very mature comic with blood, drugs, maybe partial nudity (idk if can or not lol), the works. Not gonna over do it of course it will be tasteful and only drawn if it helps the story.

This is my first time doing a comic book but I plan on making it highly professional. Something you could see in a comicbook store.

 

Let me know if there are any other contacts that you would like to see a backstory of. If anyone is a lore expert on this game and would like to make suggestions as to what characters/stories/lore that should be in the comic let me know ill consider all suggestions/critiques.

 

Ill update this thread will progress and such.

The Cover

Here's the first character sheet of Tip Toe. Gonna work on the brothers but probably won't put as much time into those character sheets as I did this one to save time and actually work on the comic itself. Also, because these characters are customized heavily with tattoos/graphics ill have to cut out some of the designs to cut down on the amount of drawing.

How about instead of making a null post about it you just do it and then post it after?

I drawn a small storyboard in this style
It's quite far from what you planned though

Whut's Design. Name will be Darius in the story. Got his nickname Whut because he loves his music and never wants to listen to anybody. When he has his headphones on don't try and talk to him. He will look at and just say "whut?" (if you have a better backstory for his name let me know lol)

Thanks, yeah I was thinking either him or devil dog for an enforcer story. Thanks for the suggestion

Really good art work, loving your direction, if you haven't, you should get in contact with some of the "lore experts" of apb to give you a helping hand.

IIRC  @Word2 is pretty well versed in APB lore or would probably know someone to talk to.

Here's the Comic book for the Fan comic. Took about a week to finish. Tell me what you think.

Makes it cooler that you're using assets from the game (the screens). If I had to do it I would draw them but this way it feels better.

Yeah I was trying to figure out if I would draw it or not but figured it would take to long to make it feel and look right. This cover already took like a week lol

Would love to see a story about Wilson LeBoyce, arguably the best character ever.

Just an update.

Still going to be working on this, just have been doing personal drawings and research for comic book design. I might even redo the cover as I get better everyday and I already feel I can make a better cover. But anyways thanks for the support you guys I definitely want to bring this comic to life.
