It’s been something like a year I have this meme project in mind.
This panel with the butcher’s face was just too much for me to turn a blind eye on its meme’s potential !
I’m sharing a psd file where you can change :

Some mutant larvas are coming up in WASTE.
I didn’t want them to suffer some poor design like lots of things I made without concept. So I took the opportunity to draw those during my break at work even if you won’t see them before dozens of pages…
To find new ways to make urban landscapes.
I’d like to feel more photo independent.
Things are going back on track so I thought I’d try to get more talkative about what I’m doing.
I’d like to make a Vlog about the making of WASTE since it’s where most of the fun is for me as the author, but I gotta think about it not to spoil too much or always record the same routines…
I’ll be thinking it over.
Chapter 3 is taking more and more time.
I’m facing story telling issues and I’m having a really hard time progressing because of that. So in the end I decided to rework it.
I know it’s been very long that chapter should have been out, and people won’t be satisfied by some standard length and content. But if I put everything I wanted to put in that chapter it will just take forever to be done…
The nearly finished pages shown until now have been taken off. They might be re-injected later…it will depend on how quick I can get things done…
OK so it’s a very late “early” publication but well, that’s me ! I’m trying to post the manga bit by bit. If it happens to be better then I’ll adopt that publication style for a page every 1 or 2 days…
Let me know your opinion. Some people don’t like to get things bit by bit. Some others do like it etc…
I finally did it. What a pain it was…but now everything works just fine !
-Now comments are open again I’m using disqus so you can comment with your cherished social network account, get replies, follow people, vote etc…
-The manga reader works correctly (but still needs some serious CSS to be less…horrible)
-Social network buttons are everywhere
-Old posts have been input (manually and painfully)
I finally got a functional website ! (which I was looking for since 8 years)
Now let’s do some manga stuff…
A few impact effect tries. Mainly to compare my ability to use a graphire, intuos and Cintiq…Cintiq is the last (and best one in my opinion).
These days I’ve finally been able to get back to WASTE. Chapter 3 is definitely coming out before February 14.
With chapter 3 I decided to go for photoshop as my main and only drawing program. So I’m relearning to make my FX and find the tools I’m comfortable with from scratch again. That certainly is the kind of disadvantage you have over traditional media. It’s frightening to see how much a program can influence you.
I went for photoshop mainly because the unrivaled freedom and possibilities it provides. I can even now reuse Manga Studio and inject it in photoshop in an easy way. But I want to do everything in PS so I don’t have to dance switch between programs.
Photoshop gives lots of freedom but you have to build your own tools from scratch (I’m crafting lots of brushes). However I’m really happy from what I get.
