Helm, you should make a Yus page in the pixipedia. It'd be awesome to see it and all of its variations over the years.



Do it....
Do it.

Oi, Helm...I noticed in another thread you mentioned that you do comic work for a living...  Are you a penciller, inker, writer, ???  If you've got any of your work available online, I'd love to check it out.  I used to self-publish my own books, before I got into making games, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things in my spare time.  Seeing other's work would certainly be a great source of inspiration...

Yeah I do comics for a living. I write, pencil, ink and occasionally colour my work. Check the pixelation OT creativity thread, or just click on links. The few on the last page of the OT thread are translated too, though.

So this one time, a lot of people got caught up in their excitement over nothing astounding.

Amazing work, Helm!  Man, I was totally taken aback by those...the style reminds me very much of work I used to read in Heavy Metal (back when it was good).  I especially like the "wheel" pic (nice non-linear narrative), and the cable workers one. What publisher do you work with, and do they happen to ship overseas?  I'd love to pick up some of your books...

Thanks for checking out my work, glad you like. My influences are more european than american, and Heavy Metal (well, Metal Hurlant, really) with stuff like Moebius, Pazienza, Kaza etc are pretty much 50% of my aesthetic style.

I haven't published any books, my one-pagers run in a weekly greek newspaper. I plan to collect and publish my first volume of assorted at about 5 months.
