Con Season over for now

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 5, 2010, 10:45 AM
Well, what used to start in May now starts in March and goes quite late in the year. I have no problem with that at all. In fact if it weren't for some other engagements I have I would have even gone to the one in NY since its only a drive away.

All in all i would say that this year has been a break through year for me. I have tried with concerted effort to raise the bar of what you expect from me. I find that the energy of youth is a driving force behind a lot of the creative genius i see and for that reason I pushed my self to leave my comfort zone a bit. There are still many things i need to improve on, but thats part of the process. I hope next year I can say the same thing.

Right now i am working on  project i can't say which is not something I have mentioned much of or given exact details on. If I can post something i will do so so you guys can enjoy it as well. With Ramadan winding down, I will be able to have more power and get back into my normal routine which involves afternoon coffee.

Did any of you read my 5th Capsule in VENT? Well there will be a chance to do so as there will be a VENT release party in Toronto on the 15th of September though there will be more information forth coming. You might think after reading the first chapter you know what will happen, but I am trying hard to steer clear of stereotypical things as much as possible, and am writing this book not caring if it will sell or not. I resolved that in my mind, I don't want to cater to anyone on this or tell the story in a certain way because it will sell better or we can make action figures out of it. You like it, great lets be friends, if you don't its fine with me and we can still be friends.

Makes me think though, would you guys mind if it were in black and white with odd splashes of colour once in a while? Might have to if i don't get major funding or back up. I am itching to do it in black and white with zip tones, i want to master it. It just seems more crisp and readable.

So far i did 4 commissions of 5C characters and i am elated.

I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Break the rules or follow the norm? who cares!

This is your book. What does OMAR want to see?

Black and white would be fine with me, I want to read it the same either way. Your art is breathtaking!

Tones are fine. You could do the introductory pages of each chapter or volume in color, and the rest of it in grayscale. :)

Cool to hear about 5th Capsule. Best of luck with it. And btw, I wouldn't mind if it is in black and white.

I couldn't make it to Fan Exp (too busy with Ramadan and stuff) but I am looking forward to the VENT release party. Is it by any chance going to be at The Beguiling? As far as black and white goes, It might be disappointing after seeing your beautifully coloured previews but I'm sure anything you illustrate is worth it with or without colour.

As always, Good Luck

Glad to hear you're sticking true to your vision for 5th.
As far as colours go, I hope you get the backup you need. Your style is very distinctive, but god forbid this turns into another Rival Schools bust. Though I'm sure the story will carry it far.

Best of luck!

That fourth commission wouldn't be Yuki would it?


But yeah, do what you want with your story, and we'll (well, I know I will) support it. B&W is fine if you want, you could do it in B&W first then if it sells, release a color version? I didn't know about the VENT party, or that we need to buy VENT to see your 5C story. Or is it just a preview?

Alaikum Salaam, good luck Omar!
