AT first I was not going to do this issue, but I later changed my mind. I love working with your all. I will be doing 2 pages in act 2. I have not yet seen the script yet, but I'm sure it will be awesome as with all of the HA stories. thank you for the invite.
this time I'm going to take my time and try to put my best foot forward on those 2 pages. I plan on putting more color into it. and more details to my line art.
PS. i'm going to try and finish my poster for HA#8, (or#9), for fillers of that issue.

irrevenant: Yep, that works very well, I think!
 
UncreativeName: Ah, sorry - of course it would be great to have you do a page as well. I may still make minor changes to the page assignments, as there are also still a few changes made to the script.
 
Nepath: Thanks for the offer! I'll get back to you if we need more artists.
 
cdmalcolm1: Thanks a lot, your pages so far have been great and I'm looking forward to seeing more from you!

D'oh, I was just about to start on my two! xD  

P.S. If you're redoing the script anyway is it possible to change it to one script page = one comics page?  That would be awesome.

The main adjustments are being made to Act 3. As far as I'm aware, I think Act 1+2 are still greelit.
Stop looking at my signature and read my comics!!

Oh cool.  If you are able to confirm that's the case, is it possible to get at least the script for Act 1 (and maybe 2) back in the interim so we can get started on it?  (Why yes, I *am* stressing a little about my first HA pages ever, why do you ask? >_>)

EDIT: Parts 1 and 2 are back up now. Y'all are absolute legends! :D

Yep, changes are only being made to act 3. The script for acts 1 & 2 is back in the dropbox folder.

I'll likely start drawing pages tonight.  Actually, I was going to do it last night, but I didn't have quite as much time as I might have needed.
 
And I do plan on coloring my pages, but if somebody wants to color mine, I'm not averse.  Saves time for me if that's the case.  But if I start tonight, the first page of mine, at least, should be done tomorrow (I usually do pencils at night, inks when I get up and then colors and letters when I'm at a place I can get online, which is not at home).

Double-post to say that page 9 of act 1 is sent off to Abt.  I should note: I colored the zombie skin a purplish pink and their eyes purple because I wanted to keep correlation with Zombie Queen's energy color from her reference picture.
 
It was also interesting to draw zombies.  I eventually looked at an issue of Comic Heroes I have that spotlights the Walking Dead (comic and show) in order to get some zombie visual inspiration.
 
On a note here: it's interesting when I think of the fact that “zombie” is a correct term here, despite it not often actually being used right.  A “zombie” is a creature controlled by another.  “Revenent” is the term for reanimated corpses.  Most “zombie” movies are just about revenents, though this instance has revenents that are zombies.  Fun linguistics.

I'm up for covering you. I see irrevenant will be doing the colors, which is great since I'm more of just a line art guy.

I guess I'd just need access to the script and I should be able to sort the rest out. If you want, you can PQ me or shoot me an email here: easycheesymac@gmail.com
 

Just let me know what's up :)

(a) I'm sorry I won't get to colour Fuku's stuff, and (b) it's great to see you made it into this issue after all, UncreativeName. :)  I checked out your comic “The Steed” a little while back and you have a great style.

I'm happy to do your colours.

I managed to get more done on the weekend than I anticipated (thank you again, BTW, for getting that script back up so quickly - that helped tons) so I should have my first page done fairly soon. \o/

I'd need to have a reference picture for Kaine as well(I did find a hero called Kain the White Shadow from the forums but I'm not sure is he the mentioned character) plus for Peligroso's motorcycle.
 
I noticed that many have started working on their pages already so I wanted to ask how the things are usually done here? I'm asking this because I was originally going to wait until seeing Byth1's pages so I could keep the continuity between the pages by different artists consistant but since some have already started should I just start working as soon as possible and not think too much about it?

That Kaine the Whiteshadow is the Kaine you are looking for.

It sounds like you already found the answer to this. I just wanted to add that another good source of information on characters (including pictures)  is the HUniverse wiki at huniverse.wikia.com

I added Peligroso, Wraith, Hecate and Kaine to the “references” folder.
 
cdmalcolm1: I'm not sure if ironhand has started on his version of act 2 page 9 yet, so we may still use it as the official one… we will see what ironhand says.

It was my bad for jumping the gun on page nine, sorry about that iron. You can draw page 9. I'll just finish it out and make it a promo piece. I will not use any of the script and add other heroes to it if Abt lets me. Or I just might just use one panel as a promo.

I started page ten a little early today. Hoping to have the pencils done this week end. Thank you Irrevenant for the wiki links.

If you've already drawn Page 9, I'm fine with you just going with that. I dont just having the final three pages in Act 3.

Woo, my first page is in!  I might tweak the shading a little but IMO, it's basically as good to go as I can get it.

*does the happy happy dance*

ALL ARTISTS: I've sent around a few PQs and dropbox invites, so please check the first post in this thread to see if all the information next to your name is correct (and/or you actually received the invite)!
 
irrevenant: Excellent, congrats on finishing your first page!

Another thing - I just added reference of Coldcut to the dropbox folder, but was wondering whether we should also give him a RISE costume. I like the design as it is, but touching it up a bit with red details would go a long way to identify him as a member of RISE, I think.

Someone's attributed Act 2, Page 12 in there to me - Act 1, Page 12 is mine, but not that one.  I think it might be Shasta's?
EDIT: Yup, Shasta's.  I've renamed it accordingl. :)

Can we clarify what colour zombies are, please?  Based on some of the other artwork, I may need to tweak mine. >_>

Thanks.

Yeah, Act 2 Page 12 is mine.  I need to draw 13 and 14 still, as well, and then jump on to act 3 (which I just saw has been posted now).
