The poster is DONE! The photoshop file is 478.8 MB…yeah VERY BIG. The actual image is 18×24 300DPI, that’s 5400×7200 pixels. Somehow I managed to use only 16 layers. I picked a different method of coloring for this piece. Usually I would use hard edge shadows to render the images, but this time I wanted to give it an american comic type style.
Ever since I posted the sketch of the poster, I was getting emails and messages about purchasing the poster. As you know we don’t have a store anymore, Ananth and I really need to focus on our last few semesters in college. So instead of worrying about running a store (business), our main focus is college. Which makes sense right? I hope so.
Even though Ananth and I try our best to update on time, Applegeeks is still a hobby, fun project, for us. We are not ready to make it into a full time webcomic or business. Depending what will happen after we graduate, what kind jobs we will have, or where the jobs will lead us… the future of Applegeeks is unclear.
Anyway, I’m getting kind of side track there.
We will sell the poster online once we get the store back up. Please don’t email us for a date, because we have no clue. Since we’re getting invited to cons now, the best we can do is sell the posters and other items at the cons. I’m really sorry if you can’t make to the cons that we attend, you will just have to wait patiently. Believe me, the posters will not run out.
Here are the cons we will attend this year: Katsucon, Connecticon and Otakon. If you’re going to Katsucon, don’t forget I will have a photoshop panel on friday (Feb 18) at 6pm. I will demonstrate how I ink and color the comics.
