PLOT


‘Cybersteel’ is a wide-ranging urban and sci-fi thriller, created by SirWendigo and Thiefmarine, and set in future Europe where   è un urban thriller fantascientifico di ampio respiro, creato da SirWendigo e Thiefmarine, e ambientato in un’Europa del futuro, where the subtle order balances are secured by legitimized killer protected by international organizations and governments.

 

2021 - Munich

Jacques Lemaire, better known as Anger, a worldwide wanted killer, weeps over the graves of his wife Irene Keith and his son Jared. Europol, through the British agents Caldwell and Rhodes, tries to understand if the man has killed his family in the midst of a murderous rampage, or if it's a misdirection to protect his family. Years go by and the 'Jared Keith' case is filed for lack of incriminating evidence against Lemaire.

 
2035 - Bologna
Kevin Stone, 21, is an English student not exactly exemplary, a terrible liar and a hacker when the sun goes down. The boy has no job and he can't find one... this is an excellent opportunity to implement an historic hit! Taking advantage of his computer skills and using the anonymity of university computers, he steals a million euro from suspicious accounts of a German organization disguised as a charity. Just when he thinks he's safe, he makes a misstep that immediately directs the owner of the money on his trail.

FAQ


Q: Does the style matter? I know the style of each individual artist varies greatly, but should the entries try to reflect your artistic style in at least some way? Should the style be at least somewhat realistic? 

Not at all. Your works should always reflect your style and we're searching original works that will differ from our style. Less realistic style won't be penalised in any way, the important is to keep the image accurate and that's a complete illustration, not just a lazy sketch.

 

Q: For traditional art drawings, the scan or picture must be uploaded so that the file is 2020x2906 resolution?
Yes, different medium same rules.
You can scan traditional art at whatever resolution then you can change the size in Photoshop or other software and crop the drawing. 
You can either post a photo of a traditional drawing as long as it looks finished and cut properly.

Q: Will a larger resolution file be disqualified? 

Yes, unless you don't insert your drawing in our template before the contest ends.

 

Q: I saw you approved an entry with snow. Is it considered Off Topic, since it doesn't appear in the story?

Nope, climatic events are not considered Off Topic. Maybe a tsunami would be too exaggerated though...

 

Q: Where is the story set? What nationalities are the character?

Please, read the characters sheets before starting your drawing!!
The story is set in Europe, between Germany, Italy and United Kingdom (yes, we know about Brexit but please, turn a blind eye!).
Caldwell Rhodes and Kevin are English. Kevin studies in Italy, where he meets Alex, and Italian student. Anger is French but he lives in Germany nearby Freiburg. 
Upper is American and Jelom is Palestinian but for know we don't know where they are.

    Really? Nobody made a post about it? Not even a DeviantART post about the massacre? I'm disappointed...

    What happened in Paris is terrible, but we must avoid slipping in ethnic and religious hatred. You cannot fight violence with violence, but also the Isis knows that attacking a country like France, which by History isn't pacifist, won't get nothing but war and manhunt (or borders closure, as Hollande said). It's a political act, not a religious act, like the Isis claimed it to be.
    Europe is tired of innocent people always getting in the way. I don't know who's bribing these murderers, but I really hope they pay for what they did, and I'm only talking about these terrorists. There's no place for ethnic hatred.
    Now I live in the belief that my eyes will see the war. We're becoming increasingly intolerant and this will only bring us to shoot our brothers or friends just because they believe in another god or have a different skin color.
    We should also examine ourselves...
    We shouldn't let this imminent war happen.

    Ehilà! Anche quest'anno, come l'anno scorso, mi trovate in SELF AREA, Piazza San Romano con DUCKIE & EZOMBIE (Queso). 12034461 1533005746990957 231810549663900291 O by SirWendigo
    Porteremo un artbook fighissimo con lavori vecchi e nuovi a tema fantasy, e 3 tutorial che mostrano i nostri rispettivi metodi di lavoro. L'albo è in formato A4 con 40 pagine a colori. *w*

    Trovate più notizie sulla pagina dell'evento:

    Per quanto riguarda i miei lavori, avrò con me le ultime copie rimaste di
    CYBERSTEEL - FAREWELL e  OUTWARDS 1,

    Arriviamo al tasto dolente... OUTWARDS 2.

    Patreon important changes!

    Thu Aug 6, 2015, 3:33 AM
    Patreon Ante by SirWendigo

    Hi there!
    If you read my last journal you may know I'll no longer submit my CyberSteel comic on Patreon. It will be FREE to read and on Tapastic. I will notify you later this week. 
    Why this sudden decision? Because I really want everybody to read it and be able to judge and like my work before donating something to my cause.
    Meanwhile I'll focus more on exclusive contents for my Patrons.

    By supporting my work on Patreon you'll get a lot of nice stuff like WIPs, step by step, full resolution PSDs, exclusive illustrations, video tutorials and NSFW YAOI.



    What is Patreon and how it works?


    Patreon is basically a way to support the Creators you love and get something in reward. I offer
    monthly rewards, proportional to how much you can spend.
    You can choose a reward tier equal or lower to the amount you pledged, if you just want to support. You also get all the rewards below your pledge. For example, if you choose the $10 reward, you'll have access to all the rewards below it as well. 
    Patreon is made to support artists through time; anyway, if you want to make a one-time donation, you can wait until Patreon charges you, and then just delete your Pledge.
    You won't be charged until the 1st of every month, and it usually takes a full 72 hours for all pledges to process. You’ll receive an email that will indicate whether your pledge was successfully processed or declined.


    What I'm offering


    1dollar by SirWendigo
    ● With 1$ you get
    - Access to WIPs and rough sketches (previously limited to 5$ Patrons)

    You'll get access to older +1$ contents as well. 



    ● With 3$ you get
    - All previous rewards PLUS
    - Access to free to color Linearts (previously limited to 5$ Patrons)

    You'll get access to older +3$ contents as well. 



    5dollars by SirWendigo
    ● With 5$ you get
    - All previous rewards PLUS
    - Access to resources and exclusive illustrations
    - 40% Discount over all my Gumroad products
    - I will follow you on FB and Twitter 
    - You'll get a permanent Patron feature on my dA main page 




    ● With 10$ you get 
    -All previous rewards PLUS
    -Access to Tutorials and Step by Steps of my illustrations
    -Access to my .PSD files
    -Access to occasional Process Videos
    -Access to all current available PDF Ebooks from Wendigo (just ask for a free copy and I'll e-mail it to you)



    ● With 15$ you get
    -All previous rewards PLUS
    -ACCESS TO NSFW GALLERY! Contains hardcore YAOI and sometimes HETERO! - An average of 4 drawings a month


    FAQ

    When will I receive my rewards?


    From this month onwards, the rewards will be shared on Patreon after the first week of the month, that is once Patrons are charged, so expect content from the 7th of each month to the 14th.
    Furthermore, from next month until September, I guarantee 4 comic pages per month, with a small break between September and October because of important exhibitions in which I'm taking part. 


    What if I want to lower my pledge?


    There is a 'try free for 15 days' option for new patrons.
     You can pledge a certain amount, then you can either delete or lower your pledgeuntil the 15th of each month. Anyway, if you lower your pledge after that date, your patronage may be deleted without previous notification. Same will happen if you decline a payment.


    How Milestone goals work?


    Goals are there to make my work better and every time I reach a new goal, I will offer you extra rewards. I will send your Milestone rewards if the goal is still exceeded after Patrons have been charged, always after the 7th of each month.

    Thank you so much everybody for all the birthday wishes, gifts, cakes, llamas and everything! :dummy:
    I'm having a great day, had sushi with friends yesterday and it was great, and now I'm working on my comics as usual. 

    I want to let you know last paid commissions will be delayed again due to my Patreon and comics work (I have over 50 pages to finish in 2 month, omg!), I just wanted to let you know I'm not disappeared, I'm just working on them in my free time. I only have 3 paid commissions left but I still wanted to clarify. I also added a progress bar on my main page so you can follow the progress of your commissions. :)

    ANNND... I'm working on two new artbooks too! 
    One is 'The shortest distance' and the artists crew involved is named 'The Crooks', check out the FB page if you didn't. 
    The other one is still a secret but it's gonna be a HUGE remake of an old project. ;P Guess what? Hehe...


    And here's are some estimated release dates for my next projects.

    GUYS! YOU.ARE.AMAZING

    Thu May 7, 2015, 4:47 AM
    Really, and ALWAYS remember that!
    I received over 300 comments, notes, PMs, messages, E-mails, from you, and even some new commission requests, Patrons, and donations. I tried to reply to all of them but I may have missed some. ;3;

    YOU ARE AMAZING! I can't express it better that this.

    You helped me lots understanding I can do it and that I should focus on one goal at a time. Some of you suggested me to get a Part-time job, but at the moment I'm working full-time on 3 comics and 2 profit artbooks and I don't have time to focus on other things or to move my ass and get another job, due to my tight scheduling. It may take a lot of time to see results and money from these projects but I'll try my best to keep calm and stay positive.

    THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! 
    I'LL TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE HERE AND REWARD ALL OF YOU WITH SOME RESOURCES, (HOPEFULLY) GOOD ART AND LOT OF COOKIES. 

    You will never disappoint me, guys.
    You're the best supporters in the world. 

    Much love :heart:

    Hi there,
    I'm Thomas (still 'Laura' on my documents), an Italian Ftm who started his transition 2 years ago and I'm about to start my teraphy within few months.

    The transition in Italy works this way: you have to go to the psychologist every 2 weeks to receive the permission to start hormone therapy.
    When I started the sessions I had a job and I could pay for my sessions (which costed around 620€ per year), but then in October 2013 I was forced to dismiss because customers couldn't pay me anymore. 
    Well, I must admit I was happy at first: that 8 to 5 office job was really stressful, since I'm a digital artist, a graphic, and a video editor,
    but I couldn't find a job in my field so I had to take the first one available. 

    Anyway, at the end of 2013 I was hired by a small Californian publisher (Yaoi Revolution): it was my first contract for a comic series and it's still going!
    I'm really happy about it but, again, I still can't make a living by art.

    I even opened a Patreon page  for my art, sold my posters and comics to national conventions, participated in many profit projects, and I opened commissions on my deviantART page , but it's still not enough to become a freelance in my country. Too many taxes and you need to be famous or nobody will invest money/time on you.
    I'm currently working on 2 artbooks, 3 comics and submitting special artworks and tutorials on my Patreon page.

    The problem is I'm depressed: it's normal when you're about to start Testosterone Therapy, they said, but it's still a problem when you have tight scheduling and you can't work because of dark thoughts or the constant feeling you're not good enough. And yet the money is never enough: each month I have to pay my psychologist sessions and medical examinations. Last month I paid 300€ in all for my therapy + sessions, which is a huge amount, and next months could be worse.

    I hate begging for money and I won't do that, EVER: what I'm asking you is, if you can, to support my art (comment, fav, share, whatever!) and works through Patreon , Tumblr  DeviantART or Facebook , buy a commission, or just share my GOFUNDME compaign
    My waiting list for commissions is open and it's here . 

    Thank you in advance for everything. You're amazing! 

    Much love.♥
