Asplenia Studios is looking for volunteers to do translations of the web-comic GAMERGEEKDADDY.

We ask that you speak English fluently as a second language, so that you can adequately translate some nuanced concepts into your native tongue. These will include idioms and slang, especially those particular to the gaming and geek communities. Because of this, we also expect you to be able to understand these concepts so that you can alter the text as needed so that is is understandable by the target audience. Of course, we will work with you on any words or phrases that you may be unfamiliar with.

This will be an unpaid position (heck, even WE don’t make money on this stuff). However, you will receive full credit, a “translated by” line (in the localized language, of course) at the top of each strip, and you will get a unique one-of-a-kind t-shirt specific to your language.

Feel free to shoot us an e-mail at contact@asplenia-studios.com if you have any questions or want more information.

Thanks!

Click on the image to see a larger version, and see below the image for details on the subject and composition.

 

I started this image a long time ago and then, with nearly all of the components in place (each part is drawn separately and then combined in Photoshop), I got distracted by other things. The other day in between legitimate projects I pulled it back out of the proverbial closet, put everything together, slapped a background in there and finished it up.

This is (yet another) Macross-related image. As you can see, it is two of my favorite subjects that I have drawn often in the past: Max Jenius and Millia Fallyna Jenius, and their respective red and blue VF-1J Valkyries (equipped with SUPERpacks).

The lineart for the two characters and the mecha are done in ink, each on a separate sheet of paper. They are then scanned into the computer and colored in Photoshop. Once colored, each part is combined onto a single canvas and the thrust exhaust and background starscape is created.
