The Black Dame Has Arrived!

Today is the dawn of the Black Dame! And right here, I am showing the cover of the comic book to the world right now. I hope that you all like it, and will plan on following the book on a regular basis. The first page will be up on Wednesday Morning and then updated every Wednesday for the next 10 weeks! I am currently in the stages of creating a blog page for the webcomic, so that it will be easier for everyone to navigate through. All of the pages will be uploaded through there and be accessible through the Obsidian Studios website coming very soon, and the comic page. So for right now, enjoy the cover of the Black Dame, and see you Wednesday for the first page!

Introducing... The Sketches of Ian Walker - 2010 Sketchbook

This is the newest sketchbook that I am coming out with this year. Being that I am taking my artwork seriously more now, and since I have about 8 months to get my name out there a bit before WonderCon 2011, I felt that it was time to create a brand new sketch book.

This sketchbook is called: Introducing... The Sketches of Ian Walker. It is going to be a 24 pg sketchbook and will be fulled with black and white sketches, pinups, and other line art most that have not been seen. But just a note for you all that this book will contain mostly ROUGH UNFINISHED sketches. The finished works within, or inked works will be few, but they will be there. My purpose is to create a SKETCHBOOK. Not finished pinup sketches.

The last page of the book will be left blank for sketches in the back for a free one of a kind sketch for those that purchase one from me. The cover will be a glossy card stock, and it will cost $10 + $2 U.S/$5 overseas. If you would like to get a special B&W sketch card with your purchase of whatever character you choose, add an additional $10 to the total. So this is a deal you are getting. A sketchbook AND a B&W Inked Custom sketch card for $20! What more could you want!?

This sketchbook will be available for purchase solely through mail order either here by note, or through my blog. This will be limited to only 100 copies. The book will be available for purchase on October 1, 2010.

HOWEVER!!! Right now, 15 copies are available NOW for Pre-Order. The limit is one per person. ALL PRE-ORDERS WILL GET THE SKETCH CARD INCLUDED FREE!!! This applies ONLY if you pre-order before Oct 1. This is a thank you for those that are supporting me. If you are interested, send a note to me with what characters you want, one in the book and the other for the sketch card. If you get it in time, you will receive the PayPal address to send it to.

Thanks again everyone, and I hope to hear from you guys soon!!!

The Countdown to the Black Dame begins now!

Probably the first title from Obsidian Studios that folks have been waiting on, and readily anticipating is almost here. There are a few kinks that need to get worked out, but the fact is that it is almost here. September 28th 2010, the Black Dame web comic will be here! The story that will be shown during the next 10 weeks is going to be the first 10 page story arc to the first issue that will be released online later on at the end of the year in print; and then debut at WonderCon 2011 to the public!

So there is something that I need you guys all to do. I need you all to go tell your friends, your workmates, classmates, anyone that likes comic books to get here. There is going to be a special contest for the launch of the comic book toward the end of the month, but it's a surprise. I want folks to be here to find out for themselves. So take this timer, plaster it on your personal blogs, facebook pages or whatever, and spread the word. See you Moonwatchers in 20 days...

The Road to WonderCon 2011

So another update is in order. About two weeks ago, we put in an application for WonderCon 2011 to get an Artist Alley table. We have big plans to get there, but have come across one BIG problem. There is no money!!! All the cash used out of pocket has gone to creating the comics and hiring people to do promo material. So instead of just hoping and wishing on stars to help us get there, we are going to use hard work, and determination to get there. But even more so, I hope to get you Moonwatchers to help out a bit. So with that said, we are opening up Commission to be taken in order to earn the cash to get to WonderCon next year, and sit in Artist Alley. 

If you would like to get your hands on some Obsidian Studios artwork done by Ian Walker, who's work you have seen in White Ninja Guy, and Black Dame previews, commission us following the information below! Now be alerted, that in order to get the commission, you must follow directions PRECISELY and follow ALL regulations in order to get one. So here is what is available to get for commission.
