I have a host!

Jakk: Paranormal Detective now has a host! Please check it out on Tapastic!

Also, I am very sorry for not getting to Short Story Saturday today. I have been scatterbrained because of my new comic. I am trying to keep up with all the writing as of recent, but it’s hard.

Jakk is Back.

The second comic of Jakk is finally arriving this Saturday. The characters… well… they look a bit different from the pilot comic. Here are some character reference pictures to show my point. Sorry for the low quality, but it’s the best I could do in the situation.

Kokkoro is Jakk’s best friend, a Japanese vampire. He was not seen in the pilot comic, but he will be a valuable friend to Jakk, always ready to help his buddy out of a jam. An umbrella will still be a key part of his character although it is not in this picture.

Jakk is the main character of the series. He is either a lot less disturbing or more disturbing to look at this time around, depending on what you thought of the previous look. He is neither alive nor dead, but instead walks the earth in an in-between state, unable to perish. To pass the time, he acts as a private eye for paranormal creatures. He has a large amount of powers, such as breathing fire and gaining six extra spider-like limbs.

The Librarian is a rather young ghost – only two hundred years old. Still, it is said she knows more information than any other being, living or dead, on the planet. Although she certainly knows quite a bit and is Jakk’s consistent go-to for information, her supposed omniscience cannot be proven.

Scythe is the newest creature to become death incarnate. After her mother retired, she became determined to find a way to allow Jakk’s soul to rest. Even with her and Jakk doing the best they can, she has been unsuccessful so far.

Valentine is the brother of the poltergeist Psycho. Heavily abused as a child, she eventually willingly became a siren, using her beautiful singing voice to save many children from abuse and “punish” the perpetrator. And by punishment, she means killing and occasionally eating them.

Psycho is the brother of the siren, Valentine. Unlike his sister, he has no interest in saving the abused. He was killed during a particularly abusive situation and became a ghost, a crazed poltergeist. He has no other intent than to terrify and kill his victims. Although he has many run-ins with her due to his psychopathic nature, he has no memory of who his sister is.

As you can see, they are far more stylized this time around. It’s honestly closer to what I originally wanted. I’ve decided to stick with the dark comedy route I originally planned, but it might not be as graphic as planned.

So stay tuned for Saturday! I have a new technique to translate from sketch to computer, so it should look awesome hopefully!

Web Comic Concept Art?!

This is the beginning concept of the character Jack. Just an idea of the art style, I’ll probably be less sketchy in the final product. I probably won’t be doing the shading by hand for the comic, as I did here.IMG_1895

Apologies for low-qual. I took it with a phone. 😐 It happens. Thoughts?

This was about how grim the very original concept for him was, perhaps a little lessened, but alright. As stated before, he is a supernatural being, neither alive nor dead. Bullets don’t really do much. Therefore, “amateurs.” Look back to the original post to see more on “Jack”, coming October 2015. Maybe.

Thoughts?

Web Comic?!

So I am considering something really different starting this October. I am considering starting a webcomic called “Jack”, about a private eye who is, in fact, a supernatural creature. Slight twist: all his clients are supernatural as well. He has a few powers, most of them based on the fact that he is ghost-like and two of them purely based on the creepy factor.

Heaven and Hell still would exist, but ghosts would just be a result of recycled brainwaves and gases coming from the body post-mortem. After all, the extra energy from the body has to go somewhere, right? At least, that’s the plan for now.

Yes, I am secretly an artist. It’s a good time. My style is a bit of Tim Burton and a bit of noir / grunge. I think it could work out really well.

What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments!
