Chapter 2 - Preliminary version


Ok, same procedure as last year! I have just finished the first draft of the grayscale preliminary version of chapter 2. I have not yet set the milestone marks because I want to let the first draft of this preliminary version rest for some time now. In the next weeks I will concentrate on the Wormworld Saga App (including work associated with the kickstarter campaign) and when that's wrapped up I will have gained enough mental distance to this preliminary version in order to be able to tell if changes have to be made. The storytelling gets much more complicated in the second chapter and I really want to make sure that everything works perfectly before I start painting the final artwork.

However, what I can already say is, that chapter 2 will be approximately 25% longer than the first chapter so you can look forward to a juicy update as soon as it is released! And there's another thing I can tell you. The title of chapter two will be:

Chapter 2 - The Journey Begins

So, in the next update I hope to be able to show some sneak peeks from the Wormworld Saga App production.

I wish everyone a happy easter!

  1. Hey Daniel,

    Great stuff. I'm excited to see the new chapter and congrats on all your success with the first. I watched your process videos and was inspired to do my first comic in all value comps first. It's a short zombie story. I did all the value comps in graphite though instead of digital because I haven't perfected drawing with a tablet yet, and I like when my fingers are filthy by the end. I plan on starting the final drawings this weekend and wanted to invite you over to my blog to take a look and see what you think. I know you are very busy with all the kickstarter stuff and the second chapter, but I thought I would drop you a line. Thanks in advance.

  2. I did not hear about chapter 1 until it was finished so it will be exciting to be able to follow your progress from the start for chapter 2.

  4. I zoomed the pic so I could read it but it's just an awful blur. Hope you clean that up before you publish!

    jk, take your time and make it awesome! I'm so excited about the potential of this project. Amazing work -- thanks for sharing it with the world!

  5. I'm looking forward to the new chapter as well as sneaks of the App. Since I'm considering writing my bachelor thesis on webcomics and cross-plattform availability I'm curious how the app will be developed.

  7. @ Comicman:

    There are some images from the chapter one preliminary version inside the blogposts of 2010. Just use the labels on the right to filter the entries.

    There will be full access to the complete preliminary version with additional author commentary inside the Wormworld Saga App.

  13. I'm very excited for this. I've found the first chapter several times through StumbleUpon, and every time it comes across my screen, I can't help but re-read it.
