001 Let’s Begin

001 | Let's Begin

Hello, and welcome to the first incarnation of Black Sun as a weekly webcomic. I'm going to use this new format to publish short stories that still take place within the universe of Black Sun. These stories will be loosely related to the stories that have appeared in books 01 and 02. If you haven't read those yet, you can check them out here: I plan to have a lot of fun with this. I want you to come along for the ride. If you like what you see here, then I encourage you to share these pages with your friends, family, acquaintances and maybe even your enemies. :) I'm still working out an update schedule but for now, it looks like it will be every Friday. FYI - The image above was inspired by the Iron Man control hud and Bot Genesis from DAZ 3D. Until next time, take care & peace!

    CONGRATULATIONS… from The Netherlands.
    I would like to make some black movie video clips. I have downloaded DAZ. 3D. and saw some of your products. I am a fan straight away. Is there a easy way set up to het started? Can I import places, scenes and real shots from actors to look like the cartoons?

      Hello Elvira,
      Thanks for leaving a comment. I should clarify that right now I don’t sell any of my own products on the DAZ store. I don’t work for DAZ either but I am an affiliate. I promote their products because I use them myself.

      Now on to your question about animation. Here is a video that will get you started: https://youtu.be/qZGXEqxgHYk

      Creating a cartoon look for your actors, scenes and props etc. takes more work. Everyone has their own way of doing this. For instance I will render images from DAZ, use Photoshop and Filter Forge to get a cartoon look and then animate in CrazyTalk Animator. I’m working on a video tutorial that describes this in more detail.

      If you subscribe to my YouTube channel you’ll be notified of when it goes live.

      Hope that helps.
