So Image Comics took a look at my very rough idea of this story and they did not like it. They were very specific about it too, which is rare. On two accasions I've gotten good feedback about my submission and in both cases the issue was always how the story was written and in the case of Redwolf both the story and how it was written was not up to their standards. I don't like to give up and since they saw promos in my art I'll send the story off to another writer to look at and if they can make something of it we'll send it to Image Comics again.
On a side note about submitting to any comic company. Be professional at all times. You can start a great relationship with an editor even if they gave you a harsh critique about your work. You may not even agree with what they said, although in my case I agree with what Image Comics said, you need to be professional and reply with a thank you for taking time to critique your work.
The pages I've posted are unfinished, since I'll most likely submit the comic again at some point to a publisher, not necessarily Image Comic again. I wouldn't want to publish work that was finished and have to explain to a publisher why the finished work is online already. Please leave a comment if you find what I've posted at all interesting, as this may help me gauge how well this may work from the point of view of the audience.

So I've been drawing, but not much I can post up. I sent a short story to Image for review and if they like it I'll finish it. I'm still working on Space and Time and I did this sketch just yesterday after I had spent all day cleaning my office.
I think I was inspired or something. I was drawing a portrait of a friend and decided to make her into some kind of sci-fi character. Maybe I'll use the design in a comic or something.
Lunch time, so I'll have to cut this post short. See you around.
