Primarily an exercise in style and presentation - using Poser and Vue 5 in the work flow to create a double-page layout reminiscent of some British comics circa 1960. Some artistic license here given to an earlier part of Verne's 'Mysterious Island'. Thanks for looking and for any comments previously made - really appreciated.

One glaring error in this otherwise magnificent facsimile-- the artist and letterer would have been aware of the position of the two-page split and NOT placed a caption in it.
Also, were this a real 2-page spread, the balloonists would have appeared in at least half the panels, but as this is primarily an exerice in viewpoint, I'll overlook that bit.
Good show!

Outstanding work, the style looks very much like Frank Hampson from Dan Dare.

Well aside from David Martins comments...which are totally valid, I really like this strip..it catches the colouring and style of the Eagle, Look and Learn or TV21 perfectly. I'm even getting flashbacks.

Love it! You set up the story, more than a hint of danger, a small fortune in very negotiable gold -- and an island.

Super.

i missed this from a few days ago. You've got that printing style down. Good catch by DE Martin re: the two page layout.

Hopefully your vue renderes aren't too expensive time-wise as you are crushing so much of the detail it is known for. Definitely has that Classics Illustrated feel.

deci6el's question about 'vue render time' is a good one. All the frame pictures you see were 'preview' only renders, from a single scene (or 'stage set' if you like) - so nothing really ever exceeded four or five minutes to 'Bitmap' . The detail is 'teased out' with the various 'editors' so that the render is set up to assist the postwork. Granted this is an under use of a very powerful application and something simpler that allows that kind of flexiblity and produces similar results would be great. Could go back to 'studio models' and 'polaroids' but Vue and Pose together seem genuinely quicker. Oh for a weekly cover commision to test this out!!

Mike, I can't understand why you don't have a raft of writers begging you to illustrate their work!

I'd be interested to see what the reaction of modern children/young teens would be to this style. I remember when this type of illustration would send me off on daydreams of adventure.
