Welcome to Gale City
A quick note. Usually this time of the year there is new art coming through the RelativityComic
gallery, as I use tax refund money to set up a commission fund which usually coasts us through many months of art. This year, with our move coming up and finances short, I only plan to get minimal new pieces in 2017 -- a new cover (which will be coming in May-June), a new villain composite, portraits of a handful of new characters, and black and white teaser art.* I'm mentioning this for a couple of reasons. First, so my watchers who are "mostly art" fans know what to expect. Second, because I am getting a slew of notes from artists pimping out their commissions -- most moderate to high priced. Sorry, but I'm simply not in the market and don't plan to be anytime soon. I am limiting myself to working with a few of my regular artists who offer me pricing within my budget and/or discounts. Not to mention, my art needs simply are not what they were in the past. I have a gallery full of great work. Aside from teaser illustrations for upcoming stories, I simply don't have the need for more character art. I mean, at the end of the day, the series is about the stories, and that is what we plan to focus on in the year ahead.
Anyhow, that said, we do have new art! Thanks to a slew of fan-art which has been coming in for some fan-fictions which have posted. The main culprit is dragondoodle
with her amazing Magic Gale/Relative Illusion
has also gifted us some art. A huge thank you to them, and the others who have been so gracious to keep Relativity art coming. It is much appreciated.
And now to feature some of their wonderful gift art:
I am super busy and don't want to take too long to reply to comments, so I'm going to disable them on this journal. If you like these works, please head over to the artists' pages and comment to them -- they could totally use the support.
* P.S. Oh, and to avoid confusion, I do also have a last batch of minimal art character posters coming in, but those have already been ordered and we're waiting for the artist to finish work on them. Just so no potential commission artists get confused and cry "foul" that we're buying more art -- yes, we've had that happen in the past.
