Syn-Thesis : 005 by fox-orian Syn-Thesis : 005 by fox-orian
Syn-Thesis was a project completed for my senior year at AIB. My goal was to create five highly finished comic pages based on the very early development of Synthesis. The pages have no bearing on the final Synthesis story.

I dont know if you'll ever get this but I just wanted to ask you how did you get your start on backgrounds? Yours are amazing and very nicely planned out. I still need alot of practice with buildings and backgrounds but have no clue where to start.

I love your architecture! It feels compact and comfortable and just awesome, I've always wanted to draw that sort of thing for my story's settings, but I'm still new to bg stuff... Great stuff, though!

Hey I love this comic! Fantastic work! If you're interested in my opinion...I find this page confusing it's not clear where she is, at first I thought she was at a pay phone, then in the last panel it looks like she is in a factory. That's just how I see it, maybe I'm the only one. The other pages look really strong! Keep up the great work!

It was blue originally, right?
Like... a light, bright blue.

Is it black now? Or brown?
Can't tell without any color, but I figure black.

Hey! Is Sonya going to be in this?

so good!

have you read solanin by inio asano?

if not give a shot, you guys have similar storytelling styles.
fox-orian Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Solanin = why I did those pages
XD I can't wait for the movie they're making of it.
kross29 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2009  Professional General Artist
they're making a movie, FRIGGIN SWEET!
mem8 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2009
so awesome... everything just looks so good, so much detail!
Izz-noxfox Featured By Owner May 27, 2009  Professional General Artist
for some reason I've the impression the black text boxes are a bit aside the rest of the design, maybe because of the font but I'm not sure. black panels like those can have a great graphic impact and your other panels are perfectly balanced so I tend to think it's because of the font.
about the story it looks like this world must be a kind of Japan :roll:
fox-orian Featured By Owner May 27, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
It's not Japan, though I have taken visual cues from asian architecture.

The world is a combination of a little tokyo, a little boston, a little Mirror's Edge, a little my own stuff.
Izz-noxfox Featured By Owner May 27, 2009  Professional General Artist
this sounds like a good architectural mix and honestly from what I've seen it is good indeed.
I thought about Japan more for the conformism there seems to be here, though. Japanese people mostly have black hair and if often happens that the ones who don't have natural black hair for this or thus reason, are asked to dye their hair to look more like true Japanese...
carlorozykomiks Featured By Owner May 5, 2009
this is so awesome.. XD

the drawing kinda look like blood + ... do you know that anime?
PaulVincent Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
Very nicely done! Just one question, what is the font you're using?
fox-orian Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
VTC Letterer Pro. [VCT letter pro...? I'm pretty sure its VTC.]

It's a freeware font, you can get it from [link]
RenitaO Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
Love your use of textures. I'm looking forward to updates.

What color was her hair before and what is it now?
fox-orian Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Ooo use of textures? I just flat painted it o_o

Ah and her hair was cyan before, [link] as seen there :)
RenitaO Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
Oh I meant um... Screen tones? Maybe it's just showing weird on my computer ^^;

Aw D: I like blue better. But yeah, I guess it would make her stick out a lot.
fox-orian Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
ah yeah, the halftones XD thats a better word :)
SpaceTurtleStudios Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2009  Professional General Artist
Hmm. Well, my interest is piqued. I think I'll have to watch you... see where this goes.
