Coloured Dreamland Chronicles Pinup

Colouring is finished! Chris' original black & white drawing can be found here. If you didn't know, this is fanart for this webcomic.

We actually used three different programs to complete this. The linework was done in Painter X, the colouring was done in Photoshop, and the emblems on his chest and boots (which are actually much more detailed than you can tell) were made in CorelDRAW 12. I think the end result looks pretty good.

Dreamland Chronicles Pinup

If you're a fan of webcomics and haven't checked out The Dreamland Chronicles , then you should. With decent all-ages comics so very hard to find, it's inspiring to see this wonderful comic which families can read together.
The entire comic is rendered in 3D, and is simply a treat for the eyes. The creator, Scott Christian Sava, has woven a cool story that both kids and adults can get into. The Dreamland Chronicles webcomic has been online for about 3 years I believe, and according to Mr. Sava, just reached its halfway point.
In all, there are currently 733 pages up. After posting a new page every weekday for the last 3 years, The Dreamland Chronicles is going on a short, much needed break. So if you haven't been following it, now would be a great time to start.

Anyhoo, I also want to take this oppurtunity to post this:

You remember how I said Dreamland Chronicles is going on break? Well during the break, the author wants to post guest-strips and pinups, and has invited fans and other artists to submit some, so I thought I'd give it a shot! It's not exactly a masterpiece, but I'm pretty happy with the effort I put into it. However, I'm a sucky colourist, so fellow Lai Guy Timothy is colouring it right now as we speak. So the end result will be a joint effort. : - )

Hopefully Mr. Sava will like it!

Our Comics

So I figure I might as well elaborate a little on our webcomics. There are two that we know we will be posting on the site. They are, Lemon Inc., which will be a comedic comic strip by me, and Spiria by Chris, which will feature a series of unrelated fantasy adventures that all take place in the same world. I've set up another blog where I'll be blogging about Lemon Inc. and posting character designs (hopefully).

That's all for now...

Hi! This is Chris, LAI GUYS COMICS co-creator. I know you've never heard of us, and we haven't even posted any comics yet, but we couldn't wait to get going! We've started this blog so we can accompany our comics with news and keep our (future) readers informed. Until our official website is ready we will use this blog to post previews of our comics. (as I'm sure my associate Tim has already explained).
We are still developing our skills, so the soon-to-be LAI GUYS COMICS website will be a learning experience for us, and hopefully fun for you, the reader.

My name is Chris Lai, and I've run out of stuff to say.

Awsome 1st Post!

Hello people! My name is Jen Lai, and I'm the girl of the "Lai Guys."

I don't want to get all spazzy on you, but it's pretty exciting to have this page on Blogspot. Lai Guys Comics has been long in the making, probably since we were wee little tots; and our blogs are just the introduction to our site. I'm still trying to improve my artistic skills, so you might not see a lot of my work here, but if I ever have something to post, well, I'll post it. On the other hand, I work a lot on Chris and Tim's projects, providing feedback, and script/character etc. material, so you might not see my work, but it's there.

I guess I don't have much more to say except that comments are welcome and you should look forward to the future of Lai Guys Comics! Tell your friends!

Stay cool, stay clean, stay creative.


My First Post

Hi, I'm Tim. The Lai Guys Comics Blog has been set up by me, Chris Lai, and Jen Lai, to serve as a news and commentary section for our website which is not yet ready to be put online. However, I'm hard at work trying to get it ready as soon as possible. The purpose of this website will be to serve as a means for us to post and share webcomics in a variety of genres for a wide range of age groups. Until our official website is ready we will use this blog to post sketches and previews of our webcomics to give you a taste.
