Luminous Ages a Dragon Comic #1-3 & Fantasy Commissions!

AU$ 7,197

107

Luminous Ages is a fantasy adventure comic series that offers a fresh and diverse approach to fantasy, with dragons of all kinds, where powerful wizards and mages are characters and creatures from many different cultures and types.

My Goal

I draw my inspiration and aesthetic influences from many mytholgies of the world such as India, Greece, Sumeria, Egypt, China, England, Indigenous Cultures and more! We aim to bring diverse characters, story and aesthetics to the Luminous Ages Universe.

Issue 1-3 is completed and is jam packed with characters, action, story and more. Luminous Ages Issue 4 is also almost complete. With enough funding Anthony can devote a month to getting it done. This will be a water colour edition featuring Helia the baby golden dragon!

 

The universe is filled with dragons, dream magic and surreal like wonder. Thirteen gods have been fighting for control of the dream planet Ekratoria and to control dreams and reality forever. The nightmare forces crave power and dominance and threaten all existence.

 

 The story starts with Thrakos a young dream mage who is on a journey to discover his dream magic. Join him and others such as Leontaros, Arcturios, Silva the Grey, Lena of the Light Gauius as they are racing to fight the nightmare forces.

 

 

Lena of The Light one of our Leading Female Dream Mages!

  Each issue is:   

  • 20-28 pages long 
  • Measures 16.8 x 25.7 cm (6 5/8" x 10 1/8") 
  • 350gsm Cover
  • 110gsm pages

What makes this Kickstarter Special?

What makes this Kickstarter special is that it is also a "Commissions Kickstarter" so you have the chance to be in the comic in issue 3 or be in the Comic Art Book which is being created for Kickstarter. I have a range of Fantasy Commission. You can have literally any creature, dragon or monster illustrated from fantasy and myth!

 

Commission Levels and what you can get?

Their are five types of commissions you can get.

  • Black and White Ink A5 options: Dragon, Baby Dragon, Goblin, Demon, Dryad or Mermaid. Any non-human creature is good!
  • Water Colour A4: Any fantasy creature from mythology, preferably minimal humanoid representation. Dragons, Demons,  Mermaids, Goblins, Dryads, Monsters are all cool by me.
  • You in the Labyrinth Markets: You get to be in the markets as a trader, soldier or customer. Position is based on how soon you back.
  • Digital Painting of a Creature: You can get a digital painting of fantasy creature or myth in full colour. Any humanoid creature is not allowed. It must be a dragon, fantasy animal creature or furry creature. Minimal background is painted with a focus on the creature.
  • Digital Painting of A Creature in a world or a Fantasy Landscape: You can get a digital painting of fantasy creature or myth in full colour in an epic environment, or you can have a fantasy landscape illustrated that is not copyrighted.

Risks and challenges

We have it covered. We have fully funded three kickstarters before and delivered all rewards for the first two kickstarters and also in the process of shipping on time the recent Artbook Worlds and Creatures on time.

Me and my team of Christy and Rob Richardson have created all art, comic pages and commissions in the past and have issue 3 now complete and ready to go. Anthony has also created the magical watercolour edition of Issue 4 as a possible stretch goal and other exclusive art ready to be manufactured.

Anthony Christou and the team have multiple suppliers from China, Australia and the USA. This is so that manufacture and delivery of the product can be handled from Australia and distributed to a larger audience through a few options with fulfillment companies.

The products Anthony gets are all premium quality and environmentally friendly. The team is also 100% transparent with project manufacture and printing. If their are any delays due to the manufacturers errors, Anthony and his team always keep the fans updated.
