Hi, Lemonade is a sci-fi comic I am working on (have been for the past few years) that uses a combination of Blender 3D, GIMP Illustrator, traditional pen and ink. I use Blender to make the “hard” objects and the “soft” objects are drawn by hand.
For Blender to achieve this look I tweaked toon-shading materials and did a lot of manual work to try to make it look as convincingly inked as possible using the Freestyle-tool as little as possible.
Here are some images of some of the objects and pages I have done:
Set after 600 years into the future, where chemical warfare has killed almost the entire population on earth and sent the rest to the moon, a big resource war is breaking out. The story follows Maja (“Maya”) and her co-pilot as they defend the earth from the raiding moon military. However, due to their success they get involuntarily selected for a suicide mission to the moon to find a way to stop a possible invasion. While on the moon, Maja discovers that things are not quite what they seem like, and there is something much sinister behind.
It’s going to be 299 pages in length and is about 80-85% done now. Since I am poor and doing this on my own spare time it’s not going as fast as I would have liked, but I am trying to get this done this summer. There is no publisher involved, so I am putting it out for free on the Tapastic, and you can also follow the development of it and see more on my tumblr.
Thank you for your time. :3
