Zoz

Written by Vic on . Posted in

Zik describes how on Zoz, there are no rulers and no government! How the heck could that work?? [level-subsc]
I spent SO MUCH time on this page! I hope you like it! I like it, but the next time I do something like this, I hope I can do it faster.
[/level-subsc] So at some point about 15 pages ago I realized that I was creeping up on 100 pages of a comic called “Zik the Gallant Defender of Zoz,” and I hadn’t drawn Zoz yet. So I added this scene into the story so I could show you at least one page in this chapter. In the future, there will be entire stories that take place within the Zozian solar system, so we’ll get to see a lot more of it later. It’s a neat place!

Gas Giant

What?! Another Zik page the next day?! Why yes! But this one was easier to do, as you can see. We’re back on the Kodiak! Let’s see what James Anchor and his crew come up with for a rescue plan! [level-subsc]
Sorry there wasn’t a process post in the blog… I literally threw this together in a couple of hours! Once you know the PhotoShop tricks, this kind of page is easy to do. I spent the most time shading the Kodiak and coming up with realistic looking aurorae. Next up should be Project: Zoz page 2, although I might start sketching the next Zik page at the same time… this story is starting to build towards the climax, so I’m more excited than usual to get these pages done!
[/level-subsc] So what is that glowy spiral over the pole of the planet? Those are aurora! Our gas giants have them as well as our own planet, so I thought I’d add them here. They can be enormous on Jupiter and Saturn, and they’re just as beautiful there as they are here on Earth. Well, stay tuned! Let’s see what James Anchor and his crew come up with. The page won’t come out tomorrow, but it’ll get posted as soon as I’m done with it!

Debris Field

There isn’t even a scratch on Queen Elcyra’s flagship! That should give you a hint as to its sheer destructive power.  But who’s fleet is now in ruins?

Sandstorm

Sandstorms are somewhat frequent on this desolate planet.  That’s why everyone’s wearing robes with hoods; it’s just easier to keep all that dust out. We’re about to go and visit someone new for a couple of weeks, but we’ll check back in to see what Zik is up to soon!
