I´m doing a webcomic, and it´s well over 20 pages now and I thought it was about time I advertised about it here. HEre it goes:



What is Legend of the Burrito Blade?
An ongoing webcomic. Each update will be a full page of black and white comic book.

Who's doing all the work?
Adam P. Knave writes it. Renato Pastor draws it. Lauren Vogelbaum edits it and rides herd on the story, keeping everyone focused and honest. D.J. Kirkbride is the spiritual guide, ensuring our souls are shiny.

But what is it about?
Legend of the Burrito Blade is an epic fantasy story set in modern-day New York. It is also the story of how mythology affects us and how we effect mythology. It is also the story of how we choose sides and what those sides mean. And, you know, it has food based weaponry and silliness and action and humor and everything else you might expect.

How long is the whole story?
Right now we are planning the story to be somewhere between 500 and 600 pages of comic. Which is a nice large epic story. So it'll be around for a few years, huh?

How often will it update?
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Like clockwork, sir. Like clockwork.

How is the comic structured?
Right now it works like this: There are chapters. A bunch of chapters make a volume. There are three volumes planned right now.

Will you guys be taking breaks?
The plan is to take a week off between chapters and two weeks off between volumes. So every 3 or 4 months you will get three updates (one M/W/F cycle) that will will sketches and original fiction and such, instead of new pages. Every 16 months or so, you'll get one two week cycle of the same. 99% of the time it is M/W/F like, as we said, clockwork.

How did this idea come about?
Adam was joking around with D.J., like they often do, and decided that since D.J. likes burritos and is a ninja that he should have The Burrito Blade. The goofiness grew from there and soon an idea was born. That wasn't good enough though, as Adam saw some odd spark of potential and decided to use the idea to tell this huge story. Then he asked Lauren to join him, because she is really good at working with his ideas. Then Brian Cronin over at Comics Should Be Good offered to run an ad for an artist, because he is a great guy. Renato was one of the people who applied. Adam knew instantly and a deep friendship was struck up quickly between the two. They seriously just get along. A team was born. A team!

Does this team have a name?
It does, thanks for asking! We have decided to form AWESOMANCY STUDIOS as an umbrella for our work. We are, by name, AWESOMANCERS. This is Awesomancy Studios' first project, it will very much not be the last. We all also enjoy doing other jobs so expect the over team of four to grow and change roles depending on the project.

Is it true one of the characters is named after Kirkbride?
Yup! D'Jay, who might be the big bad guy, but you never can quite tell, is named directly after D.J. Kirkbride. Accidentally, he happens to even look like him. Seriously, accidentally. Renato hadn't seen a picture of Kirkbride when he drew D'Jay.

Can I subscribe to a feed or do I have to check the site for updates?
Well if you use Livejournal you can friend syndicated.livejournal.com/bur… and if you use an RSS reader you can add burritoblade.com/feed/ to your feeds.

What can I say? Legend of Burrito Blade is a labor of love and I love doing this thing. Check it out, again:

-PRICE: Always, always negotiable. Don´t take the first price I say as a sentence.I´ll be fair.

-DEADLINES: I will, of course respect your deadline and deliver the art in the stipulated time-range. That I guarantee you.

- PAYMENT (PAYPAL only): Standard deal for this kind of freelance, work-for-hire is:

-50% in the sketch development stage.

-50% after coloring and approval based on low-res watermark sample.


    Why? Well, there are smartasses all around trying to screw you, and I got screwed a couple of times. People would disappear, delete me from their Instant messaging list, ask me for sketches without even paying previous jobs, you know the drill.
     
    I got the chance to know some amazing, nice and reliable people here in Deviantart, but also, I had my share of dissapointments. I think it goes with the territory right?
