Hey 'runners! So I take part in a monthly art competition on Penciljack. It was my turn to choose the topic, and I went with "cyberpunk". I've been a long time fan of Shadowrun, and with the upcoming game, it's been on my mind a lot lately. I ended up doing a 6 page Shadowrun mini-story, which I then posted on DeviantArt.

If anyone wants to check them out, here are the links to each page on DA. Thanks for looking, and I hope you all enjoy!

    What the?

    This is AWESOME! :D

    Very nice comic art with loads of detail and "emotion". :)

    Make it a 32-page Comic. ;)

    Make it a 32-page Comic.


    And remember, as this is cyberpunk you have to go at it all techincal and computery: increases can only be double the previous.
    From 32 you have to go 64, 128, 256...

    Very nice. Some canonical nitpicks, but those pale before the awesome of this comic. A Punkgnaught! That excuses a lot of things. Lovely style, too. HBS, CHS or CGL should contract you for a longer, official comic.

    Hoi Chummers!

    Mr. Drake, very, very nice work for only 6 pages. I'd personally love to see more.

    Also, moving this thread over to the Fan Creations - Fan Art forum so more chummers can check it out. ^_^

    Ja Mata!

    Thanks very much everyone, glad a few people enjoyed it! Thanks also to RC for moving my thread to where I was supposed to put it in the first place. :D

    I said it on DA, but frankly I'm surprised there hasn't been a Shadowrun comic already! As a setting, it's got so much visual diversity, you'd think a comic would be a perfect medium in which to tell its stories.

    For now, I'll have to go listen to the SNES Shadowrun soundtrack and look at the concept art for Shadowrun Returns again.

    I'm not, but maybe I should get over there, huh? What a great collection of artists they have.

    I like how you're developing the Diebold character, he seems like he'd be fun to create.

    Nice work! Did you use Manga Studio for this?

    No drek: it looks very much in line with the SR2 style. I dig the "retro" feel.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words, I really do appreciate them!

    Johnny, most of this was created traditionally with good old pencils, ink, and bristol board. I did the gray tones in Photoshop.
