 The Story |  

This story is thus far; a new recruit called "Silver" our main protagonist is conscripted to join an old veteran squad of Elite combat kittens. Learning the hard way the skills of combat and survival. Silver slowly becomes accepted into the team. Later the team is tasked to find and bring back the mysterious "Kitten Kurtz" a legendary black cat running his war his way with a renegade band of feral cats.

Overview | 

Timeline Production will take approximately 60 days to complete after funding has gone through and ready for Digital delivery to be dispatched straight away. Printed copies will be sent to the printer and printed locally, then sent via post from New Zealand. There will be a limited number of signed copies by the author and artist.

Objectives |

The overall objective is to create a multiple series of Graphic Novels with 3D models and illustrative paint overs. A very risky style, many purists would rather see a painful drawn-out system, but we are trying to set up a dynamic and enjoyable experience.

 Bios |

 Smudge Miramar, (Writer) A mysterious and feline character from when and where no one knows. Smudge communicates only thought and the occasional telepathic meoow. Having a sleepy yawn while resting from a full day of sleeping.  

Dean Stolpmann (Artist) Born in 1970’s Rural New Zealand, in a village dominated by Rugby and the Dairy industry. Dean dreamed of spaceships, robots with the occasional mutant. Dissuaded by his art teachers that there was no future in drawing comics, film or TV, he left New Zealand to pursue a career in Film overseas. Ending up in the Video game industry by joining the wrong job queue, he spent most of his working adult life dealing with some of the most bizarre, if not disturbed personalities in the Video Game industry.

No kitten or cat was harmed in the making of this book. Work safe and light comic violence.  

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges Plenty of risks and challenges, Most have been overcome by using a mix of 3D and 2D elements. With an easy blend, the two can come together to create an efficient pipeline. Taking the average of page production to 1-2 pages created a day after all assets have been modeled in 3D. The design is always tricky, nothing is totally original, so we opted towards what is fun and nice to look at.
