~The lands of Fu Bai~

Postby ottoatm » Sun Jun 10, 2012 3:50 pm

Now that BSR is (FINALLY after 2+ years!!) finishing up, with only the last chapter to go, I can FINALLY start my comic.... Fu Bai! :D

Of course, NO story announcement would be complete without a map, and so I have made one.

Call me a sucker for all things map-related... or just bored with Photoshop. heh heh.

I'll be developing the formal pages and comics starting this month - should finish BSR this week~

Fu Bai: The Sands of the Red Dragon

NOTE: One possible issue, which I have to confess is a bit embarrassing for a Mod to talk about... this story will be a mixture of Lego figs and Oxford Clone figs, mostly because my beloved Lego sets are back in the US while I am here in China, and the Lego here is... well, let's just call it "marked up" :(

This is why the lands are called "Fu Bai" - it means "rotten" or "corrupt" in Chinese. Which is what I think the custom taxes may be here on Lego, and the motive for clones as well. :tasty:

Chapter one of the comic is complete!

Looking back, I have to say that I find making comics to be QUITE fun! :tasty:

But it can be VERY hard too... because you can't cut corners! When I wrote stories like The Tomes of Chiron and the Black Scroll of Ragnok, I could write the hard scenes, and show pics of the easier stuff.

But here... everything needs a picture! :oops:

Chapter One: Sandstones of Fu Bai

NOTE!!! There is no fighting or killing in this first chapter... go easy on me! I need to set up some kind of plot first! :)

Glad you enjoyed it! :)

Chapter two is well underway, with the pictures taken. I'm having a bit of trouble because there is a night scene, and I have no idea how to make a picture look "night".

But I'll keep the thread updated! It's quite fun to be writing a comic!

Chapter 2 of my comic experiment has arrived! 8)

Part 2
I had some fun with ninja attacks at night and a desert ambush, but I probably could have spent a bit more time photoshopping the pictures... someday when I get that book deal I'll consider it! :)


Recap, chapter 1 Part 1

heh heh heh... glad you liked that line... I wasn't sure if anyone would "get" that or not, but I couldn't help but to throw it in. :D

I might be stuck with the rip-offs, but I don't have to be happy about it! :) Glad you like the story so far~

Chapter three has reared it's ugly head!

Full of action, adventure and general clone nonsense! :) Now is the time to laugh, sing, dance!

Or just click here to enjoy the next chapter! :tasty:

I may be dragging up an old post, but now LCC has moved, I can see the trees for the wood.

Though not massively keen on the use of Oxford figures (though I guess you have to work with what you've got, and one of my best/favourite custom figures has a Oxford helmet) I LOVE the yellow hat (custom? or Oxford) and the back sheath for 3 swords!

Thanks Andhe - I appreciate the feedback - no matter what the timing. :)

The pieces are all oxford - from an oxford Chinese set. When I finally move back to the US I'll merge the story into the LEGO sets in a way that I think will be quite interesting.

Thanks for reading!

Sorry for the double post... I was just reading chapter 3 again and got to thinking that maybe it's a bit confusing... to me it makes sense but to someone who is outside of my "Story bubble" i wonder if it seems confusing?

NOTE: POST #3,000! Woo hoo!!!

Chapter 4 of 6 from the Sandstones of FuBai is now online! 8) 8) 8)

Chapter 4


Chapter 3 leads up to the action in Chapter 4 where the Yellow Wizard Mu Biao takes action at last. This will of course fill chapter 5 and 6 will all sort of chaos as a result! :orc:

Chapter 2 and Chapter 1 are here as well.
