Before his official reveal in chapter 19, Victor went through a number of revisions ranging from hair to clothing choice. Some of these concepts haven’t been completely ruled out of the story given future plans. This sketch was done shortly around the time Victor’s final design approval hence why he looks pretty much the same as the final story. There is a major piece of this production art worth noting, you will note the glove shows that Victor with four fingers, with the pinky essentially being merged with the ring finger. Originally when writing the story, I wanted to have Victor’s wife give her some kind of permanent mark shorty before her death, and she was originally supposed to (accidentally) have cut off Victor’s right pinky in a desperate attempt to stop his killing spree forever. Right before officially drawing Victor’s shadowy look in chapter 19, I ultimately abandoned the idea of him missing a finer as I felt it would be too difficult to consistently remember to draw Victor exclusively with four fingers. Instead his injury was changed to a stab in his palm with poor stitching, this way he cold also hide the scare under his gloves. Just a little fact for you all to take home about Victor.

A quick little sketch I drew a little while ago when the original sketch fo the two got pretty popular after I reposted it. I’m actually thinking of going back to doing the Kid Kalwa mini comics again, a few ideas are starting to come to mind.
These are some early sketches of Rachel from when we were working on the western arch. Rachel actually went through a few designs initially mainly because I didn’t known exactly how a cowgirl dressed. My initial believe was they all just dressed like cowboys, however at the same time I wanted to make their designs unique and easy to recognize. One particular note I wanted for Rachel was that she would wear earrings and other jewelry (even though they were a bit after her time) as a sign that she was the leader and the jewels showed that she was a winner with trophies. Even if they were before her time, she could have maybe come up with the idea herself and did it just for her. Her final design didn’t take form until I looked up some cowgirl photos and noticed they were wearing skirts, which helped shape her design most notably, as her skirt got a little longer with each design. I did try to keep her skirt maybe mid leg length as she was an athletic fighter who needed room to maneuver. So that’s a little fun fact you can take home about Rachel.
And so Chief continues with his story to Kalwa and Zack, but what information will come out today? Does the item in the thumbnail look familiar, maybe you’ve seen it in a previous chapter before? Well now your finally gonna get the answer about what it is. Click the thumbnail below and read on!
I did this sketch a little while ago and I’m starting work on coloring it, should have the finished work up later this week.
Secrets are reveled and motivations are unveiled. What is it that A-Tech want’s with this group of individuals and what is their secret, the answers are in today’s update, click the thumb below and read what’s happening!
This was a character chart of made of Rachel quite some time ago. Even though I like her design, she’s possibly the most difficult to draw of the Desert Vixens. It’s mainly due to her hair, I find it really difficult to draw her hair consistently over the course of several panels. Usually when I draw characters in the sketchbook I tend to draw them once or twice just to have a note of their hair and I can form other angles while working on the comic. However every so often I wind up doing a character that I do need reference for, hence the heavy footnotes in the chart.
Happy 4th of July everyone! As an added treat, we’ve got a brand new page for chapter 22 up and ready a day early. Click the thumbnail below and see what’s going on in today’s update!!!
