Today starts the beginning of the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra webcomic illustrated by Camilla d’Errico and written by Kurtis J. Weibe! The series will be updated bi-weekly on Fridays on the Sky Pirates website, but you can catch a sneak-peek of the comic on the Sky Pirates Facebook page!
Check out a teaser below:
We hope you love the new online series as well as the new game coming out soon for the iPhone, iPad, iTouch, and Facebook platforms! The webcomic will showcase characters not explored in the original Sky Pirates of Neo Terra graphic novel and give back-story to events that happen in the game.
As a special treat, here’s a quick peak at some work-in-progress material that will be out sometime next year:
We’ve mentioned it before, but be sure to “like” the Sky Pirates Facebook page for a chance to win an original piece of art from Camilla!
Thank you all, again, so much for helping us reach the goal of funding the Tanpopo Kickstarter campaign! If you haven’t watched it yet, please check out this video from Camilla where she talks about what will happen with the extra funds.
With only a week left, and after releasing the numbered and signed print image, we wanted to show fans the new cover of Tanpopo that will be available in March of 2012. The hardcover edition of the book will collect Vol. 1 – 3, as well as some terrific bonus material.
And because we’re feeling so happy, we thought we’d show you the special, limited edition slipcase image! The image is currently only in black and white, but we wanted to make sure everyone knows that the limited edition of the book (starting at only $50) will not be available in stores – this very unique copy of Tanpopo is only for Kickstarter funders.
There are still a few open spots open on the Kickstarter page for fans to purchase an original line-art page from Tanpopo, but only a handful. Other tiers have sold-out, however, there are still plenty of limited edition books available, but only for one more week!
And while we have your attention, don’t forget that the Granimator Contest ends at the end of October! Plus, in case you missed the news, we announced the guest artist line-up for Helmetgirls: Origins, and keep an eye on more developments of the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra video game – coming soon!
You may remember that Camilla teased that Helmetgirls: Origins was being developed in an MTV video at Emerald City Comic-Con earlier this year. Well, it’s now official – Helmetgirls: Origins is scheduled for a release in 2012!
Fellow Eisner-award nominee Joshua Dysart (B.P.R.D., Unknown Soldier) will write the new original graphic novel, and Camilla d’Errico will provide art for the 140-page book inspired by her Helmetgirls portraits. As a sneak peak, here are some behind-the-scenes sketches of the characters!
[Click either sketch page for a larger view.]
We’ve recently launched a new Helmetgirls website that features information about the characters and features an interactive fan wall, and finished a very successful event at the University of British Columbia where several Helmetgirl cosplayers turned out.
Full details of the Helmetgirls: Origins graphic novel will be revealed at this year’s New York Comic Con, where more announcements for the Tanpopo series, which recently began running on MTV Geek, will also be made public. To see more images of Helmetgirls, please visit the Facebook gallery.
A special art print of the Helmetgirls: Origins teaser poster called “Caverns”, seen above, is now available for purchase in the online store, and is a part of the limited time 2 for $30 print sale going on now until August 31st.
Hope you’re getting used to seeing new previews of upcoming art on Wednesdays! You can check back each week to see sketches, works-in-progress, sneak-peeks, and more. Ok. Ok. Most Wednesdays. It gets busy, you know. ^_^
Here’s this week’s piece, it’s going to a be a Helmetgirls poster soon! Just click on the image to see a larger size, and feel free to share with friends, but please link back to this site or given appropriate credit, please and thanks.

A cute store on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, California called JapanLA is having its 5th Year Anniversary Party, and an original Camilla d’Errico will be on display! The opening of the art show kicks-off on Saturday, June 4th at 7:00pm. You can RSVP on Facebook to invite friends, and so you don’t forget. ^_^
Here’s a quick look at the piece that will be on display in the store for the celebration:
There will be lots of other cool stuff going on at the store that night, so if you live in Los Angeles, be sure to check out the party. Click on the flyer below for a larger view of more details – it has cats on it!
And don’t forget, we’re still running a special contest on Facebook where you can win one of five great Tanpopo prize packages!
You probably remember the cover to ‘Elephantmen’ #29 from last year, the print of which is on-sale now for only $20 as part of our Print-A-Poolza event. It’s exciting to reveil that another is on the way! Here’s a collage of concepts for the brand new ‘Elephantmen’ cover that will be coming out soon. Which one of these is your favorite?

Another sketch for another Wednesday! Hope you’ve been enjoying them!
This week’s sneak-peek is from a yet-to-be-released ‘Tanpopo’ project, details of which will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Simply click on the image if you would like to see a larger version of the sketch above, and of course feel free to share the image with friends. Don’t forget about the special Print-A-Poolza Sale! The last of the 12 x 18 art prints are now selling-out at only $20 a piece, and it’d be a shame if everyone didn’t get a chance to order one that wanted to do so.
Hey guys, so I’ve been under the weather (more like under a storm) and not in tip top shape for producing art. So this week I’m going to share something with you that is kind of special (even though a bit old). It’s the concept sketch for a painting. Guess which one? 🙂
that day of the week again! This time, not a work in progress but a sketch! One of the sketches for the upcoming Emerald City Comic Con!
