Rocketbot Anthology Story Completed!

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 11, 2013, 12:46 PM
We're back! If anyone out there in the wonderful world of the world wide interweb is wondering why I've not been posting much new art here lately, it's because I've been spending all my free time working on my entry for the Rocketbot Anthology!

Century Preview by Kostmeyer

As it's for the Anthology, I've decided to keep it exclusively on the Rocketbot site, but you can read the story in full now if you follow this link... www.rocketbot.com/stories/126/…

Century - Amy Selinski by angiepk

The story is set in an earth under attack from an alien invasion, where all the world's superheroes (and probably some of the villains too) have been recruited into a single team to fight them off. The team is called The Century, and each story I plan to do will focus on a different hero, telling a different story set against the backdrop of the war.

Selenite Hunter by Kostmeyer

A second Century story, written by me but illustrated by the uber-talented :iconangiepk: will also be in the Anthology and can be read here: www.rocketbot.com/stories/139/…


Century - Jessica Blake by angiepk

So go look! Comments and feedback would be greatly appreciated - both about the stories, and the 'world' of Century - my plan is to create a 'user's guide' and then open this up as a community project, where people can create their own Centurion and tell their war story. Anyone interested?

YAY! Congrats! I'm so happy you managed to finish it. Since I've not heard from you in a while, I thought you'd put it on the back burner. I had no idea you were still working on it. Amazing job K! Love it! :D

Well I would have to have stopped but Gene very kindly gave me a bit of extra time - even so it meant spending every waking second when I wasn;t working to get this thing finished! It was touch and go! Glad you like it! Can't wait to see our stories in print! I wonder whether they'll be placed together or seperately?

That was nice of him. Gene is awesome. :) I think it might be better to have them separate but I haven't spoken to Gene about it. I think yours should be in the book before mine, but in the end I don't suppose it matters that much. I'll just be happy to see our work in print. :D

So now you're all done are you having a holiday from drawing as well as a holiday from work?

I agree - Gene hasn't asked about the order though so I guess we'll have to wait and see! I'm sure I'll be drawing again before the day is out! There are lots of projects that I've not been able to work on while I've been doing this... :)

Nice to see that there's still some life in one of DA's finest graphical story tellers!

And call me corny if you want, but... I think Daydream is a pretty original superhero name. :lmao:

It's definitely a silly name, but it kind of suits the character and story I think - a hangover from a more innocent time before the war. Thanks for the kind words Seb!

Loving the stories so far. I like the idea of the 'open world' for others to join in to. I can't wait to get hold of the hardcopy when the comic comes out. :excited:

My art output is still not fully operational, but I may start to sketch a few of my characters as centurions. It would make for a nice little art-jam to start everyone off. :D

That would be great! I'm putting together a Creator's Guide' for future Century characters and stories which I'll post on Rocketbot as soon as it's ready. Eventually Gene is going to change the 'Series' page so that multiple creators can submit to it, so we can put all the Century stuff together regardless of who is making it.

Massive congrats! I didn't think you were going to make for a while there. I'll leave you some feedback when I get used to this new crazy phone of mine. Very glad to know you got this finished and into the anthology! Can't wait to see this in print. I also can't wait to have proper Internet a week on Wednesday XD

I didn't think I'd ever finish it to be honest! Glad you made the final cut too!

Oh possibly. I must have sent it around 753 BC. I forgot about it by now. ^^;
