Alright, ten days later and some content. The hardest part is to comment them. Lets begin with the easy ones.
We had a Halloween pin-up to celebrate it, so why not to celebrate the Dia de Los Muertos aswell? Thats Kras having fun with markers - every time you see a pin-up like that, shaded in markers, its something he came up himself. Do stuff for fun isn't very common of him. :D
Next, something old. Back to... 2005 or 2006 I guess:
Sluttish versions of Sailor Scouts, mostly done on photoshop+tablet. It's pretty unusual for the way Kras works - he's the pencil+paper kind of artist - and in the end the result wasn's satisfactory. We scrapped it for years, until we rescue it last year and remade it on paper. The most intersting thing about it - IMHO - is that it looks fine until you start to look the details, like the girl's calves, mouths, tongues... :D
Next, the very first story Sefrin made for the site - and only one so far:
The second Titanic Troop story. We changed some of the girl's costumes to make them more appealing than the first story, and Sefrin made 10 pages of it, full inked and colored. I'm not really sure of the date of these pages, maybe 2009, the time when Sefrin joined the studio and made some pin-ups for us aswell. The story didn't go ahead basically because lots of shit happened in terms of money, and we couldn't afford to pay him to keep doing them, so the comic got an halt. He still works with us, be we never resumed this work.
Then, for last, the second story we ever did for legiocomix:
This one was made just after 'Burning the Midnight Oil' (or as we called it "The Secretary Story"). So I say it was the end of 2008, the year the site launched. It was 2008, right? I don't even remember anymore. I remember that at the time we were doing comics for some websites like dangerbabe central, 7superheroines, and some private stuff that will never reach the internet, and some of the stuff we were doing on those pages looked great for us. So we thought 'why not to use them as base for another comic, for the site, something more related to what we like'?
We came with this story about Daphne and Velma going to an amusement park to investigate some spooky happening - the usual - and getting some sluttyfication in the end. You'll notice there's a gap between pages 07 and 10 - pages 08 and 09 were supposed to show Velma finding a witch and being turned into the slut we see on page 11. The color over the sketch was Kras's playing around - I remember we were pretty happy with the look of Velma at the time.
What else is worth mention? Ah, Sefrin started to ink for us at the time - pages 01 and 02 have his ink work, the rest are Kras's. The colors never went ahead of page 04. Those who saw our works for 7superheroines will recognize some angles of pages and panels. ^^ In the end the story was scrapped in favor of the first version of Monday, where we took Velma, tweaked her a little, and created Ginny. :D
Sorry for the lack of a better word. These are some of the never seen before artworks we've been holding since the start of the website, along sketches and tests. They will be in a folder under the Gallery area, and all mixed. I'll try to give a small description of each piece here, since we can't add descriptions on them there:
The Symbiots... that was a problematic pin-up since the beginning. It was a commission that was never finished, never colored. It was supposed to be a dickgirl/symbiot corrupted black cat and mary jane, along peter's daughter, may. It's a mess, a big confusion that we doubt the color could help.
Ginny concepts. It pretty much talks for itself. Her looks came practically ready, after the very first version of the story. It would be interesting later to compare her old attire from the one on this new version of the comic.
The test. This was something we did this year, it was a test for a breast expansion comic website, I don't remember quite well of its name, but its the biggest of them. It was us working over a script that was already drawn. So we pencilled three pages, and inked an colored one of them. I'll leave here one of the pages of that story, the same of the colored pic above, for comparison.
We didn't passed.
The last one of tonight is something made just after that Fiona pin-up. Since CCBill has a rule against bestialism depicted in any site they operate. So we simply scraped the idea. Hope you like it.
Tell me what you think of this kind of updates. ^^
At first, I'd like to apologize to people expecting the explanation for whats happening, the lack of updates and stuff. Thanks for the patience.
The first and most import thing I have to say is the hardest to do, but here goes: we'll gonna close legiocomix.com very soon, in a matter of a month or so, but we won't leave the genre, nor abandon our clients. We are opening a new website, on FLAA network: SLUTTISH.XXX.
I'm not sure what would be the main questions concerned on that, but here's a little FAQ:
1. Why a new website?
First, for a fresh start, a new focus, and a different way to work than the way Xposh Network do.
As for fresh start, the opportunity to give the members the feeling the site is moving forward, that the site isn't the same thing as it was back in 2008 - we improved, we think our content is better now than it was then, but we have this feeling that won't see that. We have more people asking us for stories we did in the past, with an old, dated and ugly style, than for the newest stuff, like Monday.
As for the focus, the "LEGIO+COMIX" isn't working. Maybe it never worked. We thought people would like to see 'comix by legio', not matter the theme, but it seems we were wrong. People want a focus, they want a theme, they want the stories revolve around the same theme. They want the certainty that every time they log in, they will find what they are looking for. Well, no more Legio Stories per se, but now "Sluttish" as a theme. Is basically what we usually do (who wouldn't agree that Sara, Fuu, Ginny, Jenni, Sister Lux, among others, aren't all sluttish?), it's what we like to do. And we want the members understand that from beginning. If the story has superheroines, it's sluttish superheroines. If it has monsters, or an horror feeling, you may account that there will be sluttish girls there. We know the theme isn't as popular as incest, or superheroines, or teens, or dickgirls, but it's the only way to keep us sane. We could do comics with superheroines, or incest, or dickgirls, or teens, or a story about a teen superheroine falling in love with her mother when she discovers that mommy has a cock, not matter what, sluttish is the theme: the story will be about a SLUTTISH superheroine falling in love with her SLUTTISH mother when she discovers that mommy has a cock, or about a superheroine falling in love with her mother when she discovers that mommy has a cock, then TURNING sluttish. :D "Another Worlds" is a good sample there - Thunder Girl is pretty slutty. And Wrecker. ;) Also, the lack of "Legio" in the title give us the freedom to bring other artists to the site, working in more stories, adding more content to it.
And for the way Xposh Network works, we feel our partnership isn't working anymore. The webmaster made a great job back there, at the start, but after that we feel like the whole work of making the website grow was simply left as OUR full responsibility. Not a partnership anymore, but more like a commensalism. We add the content, we reach for more members, we look for ways to improve even the way the images are displayed - that was one of the reasons we changed from vertical comic book pages to horizontal ones, like Monday... we can't even display images with more than 1500 pixels height! Pages look too small for anyone with a resolution above 1280x960! Anyway, there were technical issues between us. We were always trying to improve the look of the site, and getting 'no can do' all the time. We are sick of those PPG in the main page, and we can't even look that fugly girl in the welcome area. We had new images to put there... but 'no can do' or 'no need to change that'. Well, the webmaster did what he could, I guess. I don't want to talk trash about him. The partnership worked... until it didn't.
2. What about the members of legiocomix.com?
Well, we are trying to sort out that. We won't accept new memberships after november 1st - I hope, I mean, the 'join' page will be disabled until there, probably before. Most of the members who have a monthly membership, recurring or not, will still access legiocomix until the membership expires, and probably all monthly memberships will be off by december 1st. We are trying to sort out what will happen to those who bought a three-month membership and it was supposed to expire after december 1st. We don't know if CCBill and Verotel chargeback part of the money, or if they can change the website associated to the account. We maybe can set up manually temporary accounts for these members in sluttish.xxx for the corresponding time. In any case, I took the names and emails of these members, and we can contact them to set up things.
Basically, from now on, if your membership expires in legiocomix, don't bother in renew. Check sluttish.xxx instead. :D
3. What about the stories in legiocomix?
Simple, we'll keep them in sluttish.xxx. Monday will follow normally, the rest of "Another Worlds" aswell. The girls, the settings, everything.
4. And the pin-ups?
Ahh, some of them will go, for good. Some of the older pin-ups will get a revamp - we like to do that. More will be added. But some will be taken out to never return. :D
5. What about the updates in legiocomix? What about the lack of updates for the last three weeks?
No excuses for them. Late is late. We will keep legiocomix updated with new stuff until it closes, but to make amends, and as a way to celebrate an ending and the beginning of a new phase for us, we will update legiocomix with an unusual amount of 'trivia'. Things that never happened. Concepts for characters who never gone ahead. Sketches of pin-ups and pages of comics. Some smut-free pin-ups. Alternate versions of pin-ups and pages. Stuff we did for other websites. It will be fun. ^^
Well, I wrote a lot here. If you have any questions, please make them in the comments and I'll answer the best I can. I'll give you some time to digest it, then I'll update the site. ;)
AHHH! A P.S.! Sluttish.xxx is already online and accepting subscribers, but it has NO content on it so far. Those who want to get ahead and subscribe already, be warned. You may see the stuff slowly piling up there, but so far, today, there's nothing but posting tests. ^^
First of all, I'd like to apologize to people for not updating more superheroines last week, the plan was to upload at least two pics from that series per week, and we started with just one. With a little luck, we'll have the follow up of that this week, and we'll keep the aimed pace in the next week.
So today we have a little bit of Legio girls doing what they like - and the plus of a Wrecker pic. Hope you like Seth in pencil, and Jenni reactions to meeting the same people, before and after her life change. ;)
