Blue Valkyrie - TEASER

Hey all! 

Super excited to unwrap one of the cool projects that’s been in the works for the past few months - BLUE VALKYRIE #1; a kickstarter-funded sci-fi action comic with one kickass Captain Jessica Torrance, her hunt for those who betrayed her, and more than a few suspense/quasi-horror influences in the vein of Alien and Event Horizon

The first three pages will be seen on the kickstarter as a teaser; and we’ll have STICKERS (!!), COMMISSION TIERS by yours truly (!!!!), PLUSHIES (!!!!!!!!), + more as rewards for backers, so get ready!

(ps: this is the only time that my commissions will be open in the next few years; snag them here if you want them.)

For a bit of background - Nocturnal Productions and their team are the ones that recruited me as the artist and wrote the story.  I can say with full sincerity that they’re the nicest and most professional indie comics publishes that I’ve met yet - wholeheartedly recommend them and their works!


meme shenanigans
twitter bandwagon shenanigans~  I'm getting serious deja vu with the old dA ID's circa 2006 ... anyone around here remember those things?  : P

IC sketchdump - II
turns out a good 80% of the stuff I draw these days doesn’t get posted, huh! have a collection of warmup doodles I salvaged - this being mostly IC-based, obviously. :)


tldr; version of the past year:
  • krad got a swanky full time design job! (Whooho!)
  • krad also signed on with Hiveworks (a spiffy webcomics publisher) to make the webcomic-in-the-works: Iron Crown! (YEAH!!)
As mentioned elsewhere, IC is slated for release at the end of this year, so I'll be making a post (or few) about that as the launch date gets closer.  : )

In the meantime, have a mini FAQ:

Q: Give me the basics!

Iron Crown is an action-adventure webcomic written and drawn by yours truly, and published through Hiveworks as mentioned above - a platform with tons of comics from nearly every genre, all for free.  (go check them out!)   If you're a fan of shows and movies like Legend of Korra and Atlantis: The Lost Empire, you'll probably dig the angle of this as well.

Q: Cool!  What is it about?

"She’s a dictator’s daughter on the run after the country collapsed; he’s an ancient demon of war bound by the mystical dagger she carries.  Along with an colorful company of mercenaries hired by her late father, they join forces to hunt down the one menace that started the invasion: ex-Judge Abraxas.  Will they stop him in time before he unleashes an even greater danger?“

Take a look at the ongoing Iron Crown doodle-tag if you’re interested in seeing more!

Q: Where did it all come from?

IC was - in all honesty - started from my interest in the WW2-era/military history in general, and with the question of “what would happen to a dictator’s daughter after a coup?”  A large chunk of the themes are about her uncovering the really nasty crimes her father was up to, survival against political enemies who would have an _inconvenience_ removed (or worse, use her as a tool for their agendas) - and in general - finding her place in the world with solid companions at her back.

There’s also her quest for revenge, and slightly unhinged vain as heck demons and mercenaries as her allies because why not.

(that’s just how we roll, here.)


I’d be happy to answer any other questions (that don’t fall into spoiler territory, naturally).   Otherwise, look for more updates here and on my tumblr/twitter - there’s an 13 page prologue that’ll be up (by the end of this year), so it'll be a lot to chew on at once!

I was wondering if I could ask a favor of you. I have a Yui Ikari character on a roleplaying site. Could I re-post some of your fanart on that page? Since your art all has watermarks on it, it would be free advertising.

I would appreciate also having a link-credit to either this deviantart, or my tumblr page (whichever is easier) - with that in mind, go ahead!  :)
