    Hi I'm Paul 'Deadeye' Knight

    But Dedi or Deadeye are fine too,

    A good few years ago I was all set on a comicbook artist career, when my sight gave out on me, due to a genetic birth defect, and i was struck blind for nearly a decade

    Getting my sight back in only one eye now - i want to make up for lost time and resume my comicbook career - but as a Writer

    I'm still not a bad artist - but i'm old and slow and I just cant compete with you young guns out there, who are better and faster at what you do

    Anyway without further ado - here is my new comic book and its FIRST character series


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    This is a great drawing by my good friend and wonderful artist Kal-El - Ron Miranda

    Please check out Kal's Thread if you havent already

    This is going to be My flagship character for the new comics I'm setting up both in limited run "real world " from and in webcomic from

    Lol

    Well thats the plan anyway

    Cos I'm disabled (sight problems hence the screenname), a recovering artist, Writer and model maker - I am spreading myself too thin and its effecting my health - as i'm putting in every hour nearly that God sends me

    I aint no spring chicken no more

    So Please do versions of this character in whatever medium you please - CGI, photomanip or classic comicstrip



    I also want to know if anyone would like to draw, co-write, ink or colour the book as well



    This is one of many other comic projects that are coming up

    I dont care if you are the best artist in the world (tho that would be nice) as long as you love comics and would like to help out

    Post your fanart of this character doing different stuff



    His swords are Katana/ninjato like and composed from pure light and can turn into ANY martial arts weapon - so be creative


    So they have to be the brightest things about the character as he is surrounded by a corona of red sunlight energy like the GL Corps glow (but Red)


    I dont just want to see swords - longbows, naginatas, nunchuks, bo staffs etc can be done too

    i'd also like to see a multi figure combat scene -

    again be creative with what he is fighting -

    Common streetpunks and gangsters to supernatural demons or aliens



    He also has a redsun jewel in the middle of his forehead - How he "sees" as the sunburst energy burnt off all his hair and blinded him
    hence his name

    The concept of the character has elements of GL, Ghostrider, Daredevil and EleKtra

    And I'm writing the prologue just now and will post it here first

    Heres the Overview/Synopsis for issue one






    This is a project all the great talent on the board can get involved in - even if its just one page of pinup art or a sequential piece of storytelling

    Thanks again for looking:) :up:

    [​IMG]

    Some quick concept PC work (as I cant draw small outside a PC dude to my sight) for Japanese Oni Demons - tall, skinny, silver haired white faced demons are the generals - while the ogre or troll like ones are the foot soldiers

    They should be armed with all matter of weponry from huge twisted warblade like katanas to gigantic iron clubs called Tetsubo all these weapons are cursed by dark magic

    This stuff is by Big Dirty Ogre and Myself taken from an ink concept drawing by BDO

    This is a sketch I got over PM from Nosebleed

    It looks great so far and he calls this messy - it shows a a great sense of motion and battle readiness for the opening strike:) :up:

    Deadeye sent me this smoke87 pencil to color, so here it is:

    [​IMG]

    Whoever did the original design did a nice costume: I guess Kal-El did the original desing.

    Just a note--I darkened up the wrist wraps as well, because I felt it added a little bit of POP to the forearms, and some glow on the center of his chest because it looked like the jewel on the forhead, and, to me, I can't think of another reason why there's a big, blank circle in the center of the chestpiece.

    Again, this is a great character design, and I'll do a few sketches myself when I get a chance.

    WOW

    That is a real nice piece of coloring triem -

    Good to have you aboard my man - sure you wont be disappointed in the designs we got coming up also

    As for deadeye samurais design?

    Its a cross between Kal-El and I designing it - my original concept - his superb skills and patience

    I'll post the original concept stages between Kal, Myself and another friend - Kazuya

    Originally he had hair but since hes caught in a heatblast explosion - giving him his powers - he has no hair left and has been struck blind

    The crystal shard piercing his forehead into his pineal allowing him to mystically "see" again, binding the entity in the crystal to his being

    Though he can fight Just as well at night as well as thru the day - He has to charge his powers by facing the rising japanese Sun every so often - so has to make a pilgrimage to Japan and sit atop mount Fujiama

    So in that respect he is like a GL a bit as well as his powers being light based

    He calls himself a totally different name to deadeye samurai - Akai Taiyo - that is the name of the ancient entity that has possesed him - a Guardian Kami (shinto spirit)

    Created to do one thing and one thing only - DESTROY EVIL

    But the Newpapers give him the name of Deadeye samurai for obvious reasons - as is the case in comics:) :up:

    This is a concept Sketch from a good friend in Norway - Hyperion, of what the Kami spirit inside Deadeye Samurai could look like

    A floating ball of red solar energy abstracted in the form of a giant grim samurai warrior

    [​IMG]

    Another good friend Daffyboy69 will do a few versions from this in different styles and poses and combat scenes


    Could somebody please colour this?

    I want it to be Incandescent red sunlight and abstracting the central figure who is made out of pure light too

    Thank you:up:

    Thanks Triem. DediKnight let me know what he had in mind and I tried my best at it. The colors were tricky but I got them. I'm just glad my good friend Dedi liked this pic.

    Great stuff from Nose bleed and Brad - Thanks alot dudes

    If you guys would like to do anything in sequential fights scenes please do so

    Single figures are great n all - but if anyone would even like to do a pinup fight scene we could work that in as a panel in a sequential layout - or as a splash intro

    You know if you need a pin up or splash page. This was a quick drawing and coloring job. I am pretty busy with putting some of the final touches on my book. However that being said I would happly make room for a small project. :up:
