Envoy 82 by NicolasRGiacondino Envoy 82 by NicolasRGiacondino
Hello dear watchers and watcherettes!

This has been quite a hectic week as usual for me, but some good news are on the horizon, as the first issue of one of my projects has seen the light of day and it is free for you to download! :boogie:

Now, let me warn you, Envoy 82, the title in question, isn't one for the prude or faint of heart. It contains mature themes and explicit sex scenes, which you might want to avoid if that isn't your cup of tea. The premise, as written by Andrew Zar, follows the aftermath of a desperate war against an alien race known as the Jobgar. Humanity masters their technology and wins the war. But what we learn from the captured ship terrifies us all over again - the Jobgar are mortally desperate to colonize other worlds. They will send another invasion force, but probably much more formidable. Humanity bands together to create a ship, called Envoy 82, to send a team of our best people to the alien home world in an attempt to stave off the inevitable, catastrophic war. It will take the crew sixteen months to reach their destination, may the gods be with them...

To me, doing an erotic series such as these has been a sort of accomplishment. I've always said how passionate I am of european comics and the organic and natural way with which they incorporate sex in their comics, as much as they do violence or any other adult theme, for that matter. To me, sex is a very important part of life (if not the) most important; it has allowed me to have both a way of communicating my love phisically to my wife as well as conceiving two beautiful children. And, let's admit it, it's a very pleaseant thing to do in your spare time :D

Darkbrain comics has provided me not only with a very strong, intelligent script (written by a lady, no less!), but also with one of the most enjoyable experiences of working in this business. They've respected me as an artist and challenged me to do what I do best and even experiment with my style and how I approach the story. And I believe it shows in the final product, some of the best work I've done as far as storytelling and acting goes. Anatomy has also improved quite a bit, of course.

So, head on over to the website and be sure to check the comic out and let us know what you think. There you'll also find the release schedule of the upcoming issues. I apologise for not putting up a direct link, but dA is sensitive to adult material, as you are all aware.

Congrats on the work, but one thing I was curious about is what's with the gray aureolas and nipples on the women?

Hey, Carrie!

The coloring of the nipples is a stylistic choice of mine. I use a 'blush' marker color to lay the firt shades on the nipples and then darken it with further shades of gray to accentuate it. I could leave them more pink in color, but I think they'd lose some of the poignancy that they now have in my style. I will certainly try and think of this when I render aureolas again.

Thanks for commenting!

No offense, but I find the gray-ish color ugly.

Sounds like it could be pretty good. I might have to check it out on Darkbrain.

It looks like an even more serious version of Firefly.
Must be good then.

I am getting a star trek/battlestar galatica vibe from this, but nice work on the characters, it really shows their personalities and concept, especially from their facial expressions.

I, for one, would be interested in the eventual combat scenes with the Jobgar (sp?) in spaceborne warfare.

Regarding the sex issue, after reading so many comics...I am fine with it if they can just make it look natural and believable...or they just be making things worse...
