Macross Elysium

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I've got this little Macross project going that I'm actually making huge strides in. It's called "Macross Elysium"; a fan comic made by myself that features original characters and an original setting. The prologue itself has already been uploaded onto deviantart and tumblr. You can find the links here:

Five minutes to midnight. I have the entirety of Chapter 1 up on my tumblr! Deviantart will come soon enough. Unfortunately, Tumblr only allows for 10 images per post, so I had to break the 14 page upload into two parts.

I really enjoy this comic! You have no idea!

I mean...I watch you draw it, and I really can't express how much of a fan I am of this project you're trying to pull off.
First off, your style is amazing. Not just in the way you draw the characters, scenery, and effects. But the way you draw in itself. You pull off the gritty unpolished look very well!
I very much look forward to when you upload the next chapter!


I hope more people will comment on this and let you know how amazing it is! I would really hate for you to lose motivation over the fact that no one is giving you feed back!

Let's show this beautiful man our support for his huge project guys!

Thanks guys, your kind words really mean a lot. I'm gonna keep hammering these out on a (hopefully) bi-monthly basis. It's rather hard with a full-time job, but I really want this to happen.

Now I don't get it. Keiko has some sort of telecom on her, she was chatting to the others in her team a moment earlier. Why is she not reporting that she is being attacked?

I assume it's similar to a deer in the headlights moment?

When your life is threatened and adrenaline is pumping through your body, you don't think very rationally. I assume her first priority is "get away"

Who knows though. When she's able to register it all she might just remember "Oh crap! That's right! I can call for help!"

Haha. Or so...that's how I see it. What do you think?

A simple matter of being in the moment; she's scared as hell as I sure as heck would be with a giant robot chasing me.

Keep in mind for the next chapter, her cries of fear and homing beacon ARE operating.

Thanks - looks like I overestimated her level of military training.

Nah, she's just a goofy girl who's too scared to scream for help.

2058. Most valkyries this far are civilian owned or privately maintained by paramilitary groups. The 25s are cutting edge at this point.

Looks great! I'd try to improve or change the coloring style to give the VFs a more metallic look, though. The current style should work great as-is for anything not mechanical.

You already know what I think of it, as we've talked. Definitely a fan of yours, man. Great stuff. My wife likes it as well. We'll definitely have stuff to do and talk about when you're down here. Oh, and the new cover??? Hory Froating Head, man. You're skills are growing vastly in the time since we first met. This has been a great journey and I can't wait to read more of it.

Thanks! You'll be seeing plenty of valkyrie porn in this ;)

Thanks! Yeah, I'm still trying to refine things in the style. A lot goes into getting colors right on these things!

We'll definitely have to crack a few brews and talk Macross, man!

I'm loving the super valkyrie mash-up going on here. Very kind to shorten up those VF-4 Chicken Legs in Gerwalk as well. lol
