Art of the Wormworld Saga - first video online!

Comment

Whooot, that 40% milestone approached fast and is nearly out of sight already!

Now it's video time! I have opened up a YouTube channel where you will find the first step videos (it's devided into two parts due to YouTube's 15 minutes length limitation) and there you'll also find all future videos.

Here's the link: My channel on YouTube 

I hope you enjoy the first step of the process. The second step that will be posted as soon as we reach 60% is nearly double the length and the third step is going to be one and a half hour long!

And again: thanks for your outstanding support!


Update #3

Wormworld Saga How To Videos!

3 comments

Hey!

We have reached over a third of the total funding goal now and this weekend I took some time to think about how to keep up the interest in this kickstarter campaign and how to spread the word even further.

What helped me during the creation of the first chapter was a set of milestones. The final goal doesn't look as daunting if you take it in small managable steps. So I sat down this sunday and created a nice set of videos in which I show my complete and unabridged process for creating a panel of the Wormworld Saga Online Graphic Novel. The four videos have a combined runtime of nearly 3 hours and I will progressively post them after reaching 40%, 60%, 80% and 100% of the total funding goal. Have a look at the video below for a little teaser!

So, please help spreading the word about this kickstarter campaign and soon you will gain an interesting insight into the creation of the Wormworld Saga!

Update #2

A nice weekend to you all!

Comment

Again I have to thank you all for your support! A third of the funding goal is already reached and that in less than a week!

I have noticed that no one was interested in the 250$ pledge so far and I have now tried to make this tier more attractive.

NOW, for a pledge of 250$ you'll receive ALL three large prints ("The Journey Begins", "Trapped!" and "Welcome to the Wormworld" in 70x50cm) and the exclusive small print "Treehouses & Skycastles" (20x15) in one package. This is a true bargain in comparison to what you'd have to pay in the wormworldsaga.com print store for these artworks. You save 65$ AND receive the special limited blue Wormseal stamp edition instead of the standard edition. Now, let's see if this raises some interest in the 250$ tier!

I wish a nice weekend to you all!

Update #1

The first 48 hours

1 comment

I'm sitting here, looking at the results after the first 48 hours and I really have to say that I'm deeply thankful for your generous support! We have already reached over 20% of the total funding goal and that is a very promising start in my eyes. I really can see this happen and that gives me a real boost!

And I'm directly able to convert this boost of support into progress of the Wormworld Saga! Today I have drawn the first panels of the preliminary grayscale version of chapter 2! I'm really looking forward to this chapter because it will contain everything you as fans of the Wormworld Saga would expect after the first chapter. Chapter 2 will really kick it off and I'm sure that you will love it as soon as it is finished.

Also, I'm already beginning to prepare the files for the app development. I have started to incorporate the preliminary version of chapter 1 into the layout and it is really interesting to see how different panels have evolved during the creation. I try to fix as much as possible in the preliminary version but at certain points I changed my mind in the last minute. It will be interesting to compare my initial choices with the final results and I will implement as much author commentary as possible into the app.

I'm really looking forward to this. I believe that this app will help to define the term "Digital Graphic Novel" if we manage to make it happen!

Thanks to you all for believing in the Wormworld Saga!
