I did a news thing but not sure if people even get those, but im having a break through october to spend it on practicing drawing as well as its a busy month, we're going to Berlin and i'm preparing tons of stuff.
Extinct will resume in november.
Meanwhile I'm updating the pages done for the Egmont contest about twice a week up til then, you can find it here
http://lattebohemia.smackjeeves.com

This comic will probably update every now and then, since i like switch work every now and then.
Its interesting to have the Boheme comic with references right outside my door and it is placed in a realistic-ish setting, while Extinct is harder since ill have to find references and do research with things that doesn't extist at all so it definately is more imagination-heavy.
Maybe ill pop some halloween art here soon, too.
See you in November!
@kidcthulhu: Im better now, just have to work alot haha. Thanks. I like it too, its old and i never get around to color it. It was supposed to be a comic panel from when Celia is sitting around in her "cave" and cleaning her guns, but it fit better alone.
That's some excellent line-art! Feel better and good luck ^_^
Hi guys, I've had a few weeks of flu which has basically fucked me over pretty hard when it comes to work. I also am loaded with school, so ive had to prioritize it. Deadline is coming up and im still not done with the comic pages i was going to send in to Egmont, but im working on it.....
On the bright side, i am sooo looking forward to draw Extinct again!
I'm still really drowning in this new comic work but ill be done sometime in september.
The reason I've not done much here is because I got a deadline on this story so I can't really use the time I want and feel like I need to get it out of the way first.
You can follow the process with sketches, drawings,etc on my Instagram.

The comic I'm working on is a new version of GMMW (my older story) but its not really 'new' as it sort of keeps on from where it left off, but instead of following Ahiti and Haven Winter we're following their rivals at Ghetto Baguette which is located right across the street from them, next to Fishlady's petshop.
Its a comic I've thought of making for a while but never really did because I had already too much going on.
Extinct will be back though, I miss this comic. Usually a new comic makes me so hyped that I lose interest in my old ones, but ironically this comic just makes me appreciate Extinct more!

The drawing i put up is sort of old and for some reason I removed it a while ago to keep the comic clear from interuptions.
I couldnt draw monsters at the time so i'm looking into making a new version of this drawing.
Good luck!!
@kidcthulhu: Haha, thanks! I did this drawing trying to practice exaggerating facial expressions and more comic-ey styles, then thought it would work as a announcement drawing and naturally a bad pun must be in order. But maybe ill do this as a regular thing each friday up til the other project is finished. XD One exaggerated drawing, one pun!
That pun was almost as bad as one of mine; I love it ^_^
Hey there
I'm taking a quick hiatus from updates to do some work for a comic contest, I'll also try to do some buffers for Extinct in the meantime, i recon the comic will be back by the end of august if not sooner, depending on how quick I can draw this other project.
Ill do an update on the last WIP page though one of these days, though.

Meanwhile, hope you all enjoy the summer!
@Karlijn: Drawing traditionally has its beauty though, the few times ive been really pleased with the result is when its done without any digital help. But im soo picky when it comes to my lines i end up redoing most traditionally stuff either way. Doing a watercolor comic and using traditional medium is a +. Its too easy to cheat when youre working digital. But when making comics it has so many perks and is a bit more time effective that way
@Linn: I miss those luxeries when it comes to drawing XD Paint is great, but it would be nice to undo the lines I draw sometimes haha. It's interesting seeing your sketch, I love seeing the drawing process of other artists :)
The fourth panel warms my cold and barren heart <3
I love everytime they interact XD I'm sure Blaze's guess is correct! Morgan seems like the type of guy who would enjoy dancing.
(I again feel the need to express my love for your drawing style, it's so good!)
I've never uploaded a rough SKETCH here before, but I thought why not. My sketches are usually the next step of the thumbnail sketch, which i scan in and ink over digitally. This page was actually inked traditionally at first but I didnt like it so much because of quite alot of perspective flaws and the workspace i got makes me sit uncomfortably as hell during inking (looking into getting a better drawingtable, all im using is a wooden drawing-pad in my lap at the moment).
I do the most messy lineart which is why i like to work digitally due the fact i can hide the layers when i dont need it anymore. Also I like to move around and adjust the characters, like i had to spread them out a bit in the third panel and instead of re-drawing i just moved them.
I also do a temporary speechbubble-dialogue test in order to draw around the text rather than just clash them on after.
The full inked/color version will be up one of the next few days, promise!
@kidcthulhu: Haha thanks! that's great, I could mail some to you when i do my first rough drafts/pilots.
In your case it works, you got the entire cast into one crazy world, and since its a strip sort of comic it works well and your story can change by each panel if you want to. I think the new story will consist of a mix of longer arcs and smaller ones.
The comic I plan out is a bit different from how GMMW was done though since it is focused on the small businesses at the street they're at and their individual lives, so the comic will shift from the shops/and often they have to deal with each other.
If I didnt decide to use Extinct for this project, I could still add some of the characters as either regulars or shop keepers in the new GMMW comic (which will have a different name).
Its hard though since Extinct has alot of potential stories and it could be fun to do a comic about just a girl dealing with her weird alien collegues and their shenanigans.
Could do something completely new, but its easier to do a longer thing when you got a story outlined already.
This page looks great finally in color ^_^

You have an interesting quandary regarding the comic contest. I could never narrow down like that (which is why all my unused ideas over the years are jammed into one insane story). Id be happy to help you narrow down your choices if you want the help.
Hi readers!
There is a comic contest coming up and I'm currently weighting between making a story from Extinct or a new one with the characters from my old comic but in a newer setting. Also, It might be ill have to take a week or two break from the main story during august in order to work on the story for the contest, but ill do a shout out if it happens.
Its so hard to choose what could work as a norwegian comic book, especially when it comes to whats already out there on the market. Its an exciting oppertunity though, and I've had an idea to make a page or two of each story as a 'pilot' then maybe present them to a few people wether it is a good idea or not, or even some concept. I'm all about for advice, constructive tips and insight if anyone is up for it?
Its definitely not spoiler-worthy as i am either way doing a comic based on the characters 'before' the current events, rather than the story going on right now, as the contest wants pages that establish the start of a story.
@Karlijn: Aw thanks! drawing her sitting on his shoulders are soooo pain though because of the lack of references, i mean usually i find toddlers sitting like this but Lara is too big for a toddler....and now I am currently drawing her get off his shoulders and its even MORE PAIN. We'll see if i chicken out and just draw her magically next to him or not...
@Jamie59: Haha, Absolutely nothing, I love them myself, I'm actually seeing them live in September (Or more like Jeff Lynne)!
I think its more the fact Lara is more into her own music than Blaze's.
@kidcthulhu: Thank you!
Yeah, I just started coloring it and thought i'd remove it and reupload the colored one instead, didnt think anyone actually got to see it, now i feel bad xD' I can add it again though, since today i didnt get to finish the colors... Ill add it sometime tomorrow in colors definately.
I thought I saw a WIP of the next page yesterday; I was going to comment on it today but now I don't see it.

This is still an amazing page.
