There's no I in team!
But there is meat!

I do all the art and pretty much most of the grunt work in Parallax.

Hoping to end the Parallax hiatus soon! meanwhile, I am distracted by the likes of Dragon Age and Mass Effect...

An update!
First, a thousand apologies to everyone (yes, all 3 of you) who cares about this comic for my seeming abandonment of Parallax! But don't worry, this is my pet project and my baby and I will never rest until it is finished.

Last November I wrote a novelization of roughly the entire comic so far and it will be available on Amazon through CreateSpace. This is the map of Ananke (the continent that all of Book 1 takes place in) that is included in the book.

In the distant and nebulous future, expect some major overhauls to Parallax - I want to get redrawing and restructuring this thing!
NaNoWriMo procrastination
so while my brain is clogged and refuses to produce more words for the Parallax novel, I've been drawing these dear characters again! Man, revisiting them feels like seeing old friends again :')

and I have this crazy idea of making an illustrated version of the novelization of Parallax! hmm! we'll see where that goes...
A Filler Illustration + Some Explanation
So...

Parallax has been on hiatus for the longest time, but don't worry! It's never died in my heart.

In fact, I'm actually working on a novelization of Parallax for NaNoWriMo 2010! After that madness is done with, I'm considering going back to redo some of the early pages of the comic and/or actually finish the darned thing.

So to fill up the sad empty space, here's an illustration of a scene from way back in the story - Lanat and his poor mother, Miranda.

Wow, the difference in quality between this and the first version of chapter 1 is quite striking! The characters seem to be much better developed now. Looking forward to the rest of it!
Glad to see an update!
I'm quite fond of the first few panels where we see body parts of Sam. He has nice jeans, by the way. I like Sam's way of speaking, too. It's so upbeat yet somehow slightly shady.

I must ask the readers their opinion! Is my recent use of gradients and/or multiply layers working out? Or is it too much...?
This comic was love at first sight~ I love your aesthetic! The story is totally out there yet strangely engaging... I'll be following this.

This is a filler.
This is a filler to cover up potential spoilers. The third one in this never-ending chapter, in fact.
This is a VERY VERY OLD sketch of Tyron Deteri. I don't even know how old it is. It's interesting how much manlier he became over time though.
I tried my hand at photoshop animation the other day. Came out pretty well for a first try, but what a bother to do! I should just concentrate on pages for now...

@ Yinyangkitty
Hahaha you made me laugh when I read that. Actually, there's a reason for everything. There are no plotholes in Parallax!

...right. But there really is a reason why Jakk is relatively low key at this point in the story.
Filler
A filler to cover up spoilers for new readers! Especially since it's in the middle of a chapter.

It's the surprise!
Surprise, Parallax will be in full color from now on!
Why?
Because I have a CINTIQ! That's why!
