Holy cow, am I doing a shameless plug?  Why yes!  Yes I am!

But yes, Bagged & Boarded is a web series that has been in development for a while and just made a Kickstarter.  You may have seen me mention it a few times, or at least vague references to a "secret project" I was working on from time to time.  Yes, I did a few things for this (not the video's artwork, though I am going to redo it, should I get the go-ahead.  Let's be honest, it needs better art and that better art needs my personal touch), mainly some comic covers (one full, another inked), and Ringman has worked on it as well, and has a starring role.

The series is about Gully and his friends as they track down the comic books that his ex had sold off.  It's basically a comedic scavenger hunt written by a bunch of nerds.  How can you go wrong?  But yes, this is still in development, and we hope to be able to make the entire series. 

Now back to your regularly-scheduled programming...

Can you show us some of the covers you did yet?

Threw that together with little direction.  I was told "goofy superhero" so Ringman gave me the idea and I drew and colored it that afternoon.

There was one cover that you might remember me complaining about mentioning, which was the Captain Cannonballs cover.  The linework and detailing was great, but, we had an unlined lo-res image to work with.  Ringman did the coloring and I inked it digitally.



Take a look at that spine, folks.  You may remember a sketch floating around of that exact pose. 8D

Yeah, the details are great and Ringman's coloring is good.  If I needed stuff colored, I'd throw a palette his way and let him go at it, as he can crank out a colored pic pretty quickly.

Please donate a few dollars and support us!  Quickman will be more involved in the final work, and most likely will have a speaking role.

Thanks guys!

My acting career depends on whether or not this gets funded. :P  However, Ringman has a starring role... as Kingston.  And who wouldn't want to see someone from RPM, no matter how minor, act like a stoner? 8D

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

Sorry.  I didn't want to assume anything.  We appreciate the help, though thanks.  And did you draw your avatar, by the way?  Its kinda neat. Is that kind of a vg version of what you actually look like?

Actually it was a friend via commission. Supercool guy.

And I guess it would be. It's in the art style of the game he's working on.
