Welcome to the Cosmic Outpost! Welcome one and all to a little slice of reality that we can call our own! The Cosmic Outpost is many things but right now, for the moment at least, the Cosmic Outpost is stepping out into the realm of independent comic books. Much less expensive than a feature film to produce, a lot more personal to read and in a digital world it's nice to go retro and flip through real pages in your hand rather than a swipe, a finger, or mouse.
Coming Soon... 'Tales from the Cosmic Outpost'
"Eyes of the Hologram"
From PC to Page...
This image may not look very much but in October 2016 it was the first serious render that I'd done where I thought - wow, I could tell stories this way. The technology had got to a point where very nice professional renders could be done relatively easily and quickly on a PC and with some extra editing done to make an image look as good as the hand drawn art of professional comics.
The technique to create these images is just as time consuming as hand drawn art but when you don't have 20 years to become a professional artist it seems a more do-able approach to telling stories!
