      This last Monday I launched a new comic project, but due to sad news I felt it best not to promote it just then. But I would like to keep moving forward as Monty would say.

      WWW.BATTLENATIONSCOMICS.COM


      its a webcomic of faceless color themed troopers in a war that allows for a fair bit of comedic back and forth...( I may have stolen a few Red vs Blue ideas )
      But also like Red vs Blue this comic is based off a real videogame you can play. I've been making some good friends at Z2 (the creators of Battle Nations)
      I've been a big fan of the game and have been doing a fair bit of fan art, so why not take it that step further. There are a couple comics already uploaded, so please surf through the whole site if you can.

      Please, join me for the comic and join me to play the game. It's available on Steam, iOS and Amazon.

      also, I am the leader for the Rooster Teeth guild on Battle Nations, its open for anyone to join.

      I'd love to hear your comments, please write me and let me know. I'm looking for as much feed back as I can at these early stages.

      as much as Monty was a creative inspiration, I don't feel so creative today. I'm just gonna mope and be a wee bit sad for a bit.
      Though we weren't the closest of friends (due to distance) we did get along quite well and I really liked hanging out with him. He was just so pumped up when we hung out, it was hard not to be enthusiastic around him.
      I'm really gonna miss him and I'm gonna be sad for all the things he was going to do, as he can't be.
      Though whatever energy he had to make crazy exciting things he's left if for us to use. And I will. Just not today. Maybe tomorrow.

      Man, this thing with Monty is hitting me harder than I thought. Just so sudden. The last time I talked to Monty he was just so "up" - on the top of his game and full of life. This is just a huge of shock. As I'm sure it it with many of you folks.
      It's like a round house kick that has been spinning for the last five years has just stopped.

    • Making Posters

      lukemckay Webcomic Maker

      I love my new toy. It's a poster printer. At conventions and such I'd sell some 11x17 prints, but now I can make 24x36 prints. Drawings look so much better when printed up big. I printed up some copies of the Birth of Gus print I did for the last RTX SideQuest auction. I've even managed to sell one already. Let me know if you'd be interested in one as well.

      So the other day I attempted to do some live streamcasting. Seems my old PC just ain't able to keep up with that anymore. So until I get a new PC, no streamcasting. Gotta start saving up for a new one.

      But I did buy a new toy for my PC. A new printer. And not just any printer, but a large format poster printer. So I can make 24"x36" posters. That is gonna be so much fun. I've already got that picture of Gus I can print up. But I want to do a whole whack of big prints and maybe, I dunno, just maybe have an actual art show.

    • Tip Jar

      4 years ago

      lukemckay Webcomic Maker

      So as it goes, I draw comics and I sell them. Though, I do webcomics up online for free.
      The printed books jave lots of extra stuff to make them more appealing to buy, but they don't seem to sell so well.
      I know a lot of folks want to support my arts but I guess aren't much interested in clutter. So I think a tip jar might be a better way to go. So instead of Patreon or anything, I'm gonna just add a donate button to Balls 2 That and see if that makes a difference.

      You have any thoughts on sites with donate buttons / sponsorship, those sorts of things? Let me know in the comments.

      Hi Luke,

      Where can I find more of yours and Griffon's Rooster Teeth comics. I found a few on the Rooster Teeth app but I'd love to read more. Also, do you do commissions?

        the comics are all here: http://roosterteeth.com/comics/ but the page is kinda funny, you have to scroll all the way to the bottom.

        and as of today, yes I do commissions again. I'll PM you with the details.

      • lukemckay FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Webcomic Maker

        6 years ago

        no, I think the cannon for Red vs Blue is that they have helmets. Any faces behind the helmets are up to the fans. I think when I drew their faces I just drew what most folks were thinking. But there are other fan interpretations. Maybe even try your hand at what you'd think they'd be.

      Hey Luke, I commented ya a while back saying how much I loved your art. Lately I have been drawing a lot more then usual, started getting on RT more. Saw your new comic series. Started to wonder. What is your way of uploading your pics, cause you always have the same layout, is it through pc programs, a tablet? I personally have to do it by camera upload but I am looking into a new scanner.

      Just wonderin if ya had any tips for a fellow artist smiley0.gif

      Heya Luke, if you're coming to RTX this year, it would be amazing if you could join Scheree's "Artists of the Community" panel as a panelist. You're pretty much the most well known artist on the community site, and we'd absolutely love to have you.

        I guess I'm still doing commissions and I guess they are still the same price. But all my art time is a bit swamped at the moment, the whiteboard is filled with things I need to do. I really need to come up with a system for commissions or something.

      This probably won't seem valid, seeing as I wasn't even a community member when the comics were running, but believe it or not, I did read them. Ever since the Reconstruction days, actually. The two things I came here for were RvB and the comics. Now that Griffon's off the forums and you're doing something, whatever it may be, I sincerely miss them. You're the bomb dude. Also, your art is incredible and I'm jealous.
