AL Ch. 5 – Page 50

This time we finally get to check on Collie as David awakes from his apparent death!

I was feeling a little rusty at the beginning but I things came naturally to me after a few hours. That said I wouldn’t be working on shadings if these were the first pages of a new chapter, but since we are reaching the end I did put the extra effort and hours to make it look good 😛

Anyway, I hope you like it! Next page will come around mid September. Until then!

In the meantime Page 51 has already been posted at my Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/alphaluna as usual if you see a new page here it means the patreon usually also is one page ahead.

As usual don’t forget to also follow me at @alphalunanet (TW) and at my NEW Instagram page : https://www.instagram.com/alphaluna/ and YT channel.

Until next time!

AL Ch. 5 – Page 49

And so the ensuing conflict comes to an end with a spiraling wind that fades as Teo’s last words are heard by Luna. All of this to an oblivious Fang who is trying to comprehend what just happened.

This page marks the point where I left the comic abandoned back in 2018 with the sketch of this page half-way done. While the previous page (48) was a new addition as initially Teo didn’t make an appearance and this was the real page 48 back then.

But yeah, things change, I’m always double-checking the script with new ideas that fit into the narrative as we get closer to the end of the chapter which should end around October. After that there will be a new “chapter” , but right now is a bit early to say anything else.

In any case thanks for reading so far! Page 50 has already been posted at my Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/alphaluna as usual if you see a new page here it means the patreon usually also is one page ahead.

Oh yeah! Alphaluna.net is NO LONGER , the New URL is https://alphalunacomic.net/ as you can see on top! Please update your bookmarks!

AL Ch. 5 – Page 48

We’re back!

Here we can see “Teo” as he used to look when he was a child, just before he’d be used as a vessel of the Black-cat Demon known as Azar.

For a second there I almost skip this page altogether as I sketched it but I thought it was a little to late to show or bring some light to how is that Azar came to be. Sadly, but in the end I DID decided to ink it and well here it is. This kid became but a soul trapped inside his own body as Azar possessed his body for over 5 years waiting to find a werewolf to “play” with.

But oh well, I would’ve liked to explain much more but I hope you get the gits.

And with this page we start walking again toward the future. Next month there will be 2 pages this time, the first coming by the the end of the second week and the other one before the end of the August. Besides that I’m still working on commissions and updating my patreon as usual as well as writing the story and a few other things.

So keep up with me, Luna and I are back to howl again with you.

Page 47 and AL Returns!

It’s been a few years huh? Well, let me explain-“What does this mean? How are you still alive? How is that possible? Is the comic returning? Is this real life?”

Well, it’s complicated…

Yes, the comic is returning for the foreseeable months. Meaning Chapter 5 will be done in about 2 months from now…probably. After that, I’m planning to add another chapter that will work as an “Epilogue” to the whole series.

All of that means a total of 5 or so months of work from now up to December. All the While I’ll be posting Two Alpha Luna Chronicles which are being translated for my Patreon where I also post in advance the AL Comic Pages ahead of the website with better resolution.

But yeah, it’s been quite the rough years for so many, including myself who had to take care of RL issues, work, and family. Priorities took my life on a path that couldn’t bring myself back to draw again and mentally I felt exhausted for a long time.

But here we are still kicking and howling! Why? Because as I said before this will be a proper send-off for the series. But then, what? Well… after December I’ll probably be working to publish the last book in my country Chile.

But the good news is that I don’t want to say goodbye to Alpha Luna and be done with it, just like that. I have something special that I’ve been trying to work around the characters for a while now. What it is? Well, I’m sorry to nag you with Patreon again but that is the place where I’ll be sharing the news about this other AL project down the line.

But again, we have a few months to celebrate no? To hang around and especially to talk about Alpha Luna whenever you want or can. I’ve recently been starting to use my Instagram account which I hope work as a better place to receive feedback: https://www.instagram.com/alphaluna/

And well Twitter also will have more life from now on at: https://twitter.com/alphalunanet which will share anything related, pics and news 🙂

But along the way I’ll show you what I’m preparing for the future of Alpha Luna, I’m thinking I’ll probably make a video or something where this interaction becomes more “alive” and real for you guys, for that there is my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/AlphaLuna

In any case, I hope you enjoy the Return of Alpha Luna as I work on bringing at least two new pages every month.

Until next time!

Page 44 & The Soon End of Alpha Luna

The First Cover I ever did back in 2004 when I was soon to start the Web-Comic

Back at the end of 2014 I started a dream, that I could create a comic that could reach people in love with werewolves as much as I loved them, as amazing creatures that could be more than horror icons but fierce heroes too. The story of a girl named Luna in a story of self discovery. It’s been almost 15 years and after many and a few road bumps and hiatuses along the way I’m still working on it as much as I can.

But the time has come to look forward to her farewell. But before you send flying your table out of the window, let me tell you Alpha Luna is not ending today but soon, as we reach chapter’s 5 ending. Which means, about two months of drawing works from today. Time which will add at least 8 pages or more depending on the layouts I’m working atm. That means pages will be posted more regularly from now on and the Alpha Luna Chronicles being posted at my Patreon will still happen, in fact they may last longer than Alpha Luna main story line.

So then, Why is Alpha Luna ending? Well to start, it’s been a long time. Through the years It was always an uphill road as I never took AL to another level of production, it was and it always been a solo endeavor  and many times through the years I took time out as I grew up as an artist and as a creator. But I couldn’t focus or learning other things as each AL page took me about 12 hours of continuos work to make. I did many sacrifices of my life time for it, but my art and narrative was never as good and neither consistent to reach an audience big enough to go to another level. It drained me over time and the hiatuses repeated itself over and over digging a bigger hole scaring old readers away and making my goals just a wishful thinking.

The good side of these hiatuses is that I managed to recover energies and gain inspiration for what was to come, write down the script, get new ideas and get excited for the future but at the same time my slow pace drained the patience of most readers away, and I can’t keep doing that. 

And that passion I had at the beginning is not with me anymore, I feel like Bilbo after the ring has passed to Frodo, and I can’t keep forcing to draw what is not there. I loved the characters, I loved that they connected with so many readers like you who loved Luna, Collie and Fang. I loved the response and I loved the community that we created over time.

But this is an anticipated farewell. I took this month out to think all these things, to rewrite a bit of the last pages of AL which won’t and can’t bring a closed ending to the story. A few things will inevitably just end up hanging, like a series that was cancelled before another season. 

But at least some sense of closing will be there, a sense of achievement I hope to convey through the last pages where Luna will be happy for who she is now and what may lie  in the horizon on a full moon.

But remember I’m NOT leaving right now, I have at least 2 months of Alpha Luna works still to do. I’ll be publishing in my country (Chile) the 3rd and last book (next June) that will “end” the series and that means a new cover work to make.

So I hope you still stay around for the months to come. The new AL Chronicles comics at the store and Patreon are amazing and I can’t be more happy of what the artists have made. I’m uploading 4 new pages of those each month to Patreon.

My work with AL will end, but I’ll keep drawing for my own from time to time and taking commissions here and there. But this a chapter in my life that was due to happen sooner or later and I think I can be glad that at least I’m doing it in my own terms.

Thanks to all of you who loved my work and followed me through the years. Thanks to you who did those amazing art-gift you send, even if I didn’t reply all your emails, thanks from the bottom of my hearth, you made my life a bit happier.

All of this has has been an incredible journey for me and while I feel a sense of sorrow due this announcement I also feel grateful for the experience I gained working on it. I won’t say good bye just yet, the last howl is on the horizon but for now I look forward to it with a content spirit.

Thanks to all of you, the true pack.

Page 43 & “Soul Bonds” + “Fang’s Journey”!

Update : Fang’s Journey is already available at the store and for all the info you need I did this nifty video!

Previous Post:

The battle continues!

The fight continues as Luna reflects on what she is feeling at the moment. Will this be enough for her to beat this ugly beast?

Drawing battle scenes is exhausting and you can’t imagine. Kinetic lines and the amount of detail is making me insane 😛 Who asked for Azar to also have tribe markings on his body? XD – I don’t know!

Anyway, I’ll try to keep up the pace of one page every two week or so.

And here is just another picture as a reminder a new Alpha Luna Chronicle Story is hitting My Patreon Page! ( https://www.patreon.com/alphaluna )With the amazing work of Jade!

Below you can see an sketch cover as we’re still working and producing the comic. “Soul Bonds” has just started with one page and will continue with 2 this month of February and so on for upcoming months. That’s about it for now, read you soon!

AL Chapter 5 – Page 42

So it’s been over a month since the last double page. Things should start going more frequently for the following pages since I plan on ending this chapter by April. We’ll see.

At my Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/alphaluna/ I have some new content that will start rolling out this month with a new AL Chronicles “Souls’ Bonds” by Jade, a great Chilean artist. You’ll probably love it! I’ll be sharing some previews of this project very soon! One page of this will published at Patreon this month and 2 more next February.

Also , FINALLY “Fang’s Journey” will be available this week at the store for direct purchase, I’ll be making a video and some buzz about it, stay tuned.

So yeah, Luna’s fight is starting here, expect some a bloody brawl and get hyped!

Leo

AL Chapter 5 – Pages 40 & 41

It’s been a while eh?  Double the page, double the work!

Luna’s Revival is here and she prepares to unleash her revenge the Anima is shocked to realize this something he did not anticipate.

I had a long post prepared with some important info prepared but after an accident (deleting my own text)  I decided to put that on hold or I wouldn’t have even time to upload this page! xp So…  never mind.

In other news “Fang’s journey” has been moved again further to be available at the gallery next December. Sorry! – Also as promised 1 brand NEW AL Chronicles will start next month at AL’s Patreon and another one next January! So stay tuned, until then! Howls!
