Peter Pan the Vampire 01 page 16 by rentnarb
Peter Pan the Vampire 01 page 16
Read my comic for free (2 pages per month). 

Happy 1st of July!
Here is page 16 of Peter Pan the Vampire #1 the tale of how Peter meets a new slayer. The slayer was trying her hardest to stake Peter, but he got her to calm down a bit. He actually convinces her to stop trying to kill him and they sit down at a cafe to talk it over.  I'd always had the idea that Peter's powers were shadow based.  He has a shadow that is self aware.  I will get into that in the story eventually.  His power is also that he can travel through shadows into any place that has shadows and that is what I am showing here.  

What will happen next?

I hope that I see a bunch of ya at DRAW NIGHT on Friday the 10th of July at the Tremonton City Library here in Utah. I have posted a flyer for that and created an event on the rentnarb page if you want to check that out.
Check in again on July 16th for another peek and some more of the story and for who won a free comic.

As many of my followers already know I am currently coloring my comics with Photoshop with the lessons I've learned from Brian and Kristy Miller's Hi-Fi Color for Comics. This page and the book it comes from were colored with Prisma Color pencils and a lot of what went into it got lost in the scanner.  I am currently on page 9 in coloring issue 3.  I will be releasing my comics in 12 page issues from here on out so that I can release them sooner and hopefully reduce the prices of them as well.  I am the only employee of Rentnarb Studios Comics so I am doing this entire book on my own.  I write it, draw it, color it, sell it, promote it, you name it I do it.  I thought 12 pagers would help with getting them out and shortening the waiting time too. 

Go to Indy Planet indyplanet.com and search for Peter Pan ot get the physical copy or contact me to arrange for a signed copy at no extra charge. $4.oo for color, $2.oo for grayscale, and 99 cents for digital download.
It is free to read here, but by buying a physical copy you can keep this story going by supporting it because without money I have to keep working my 3 jobs to keep afloat (and working keeps taking me away from making comics making it slower to finish the books).

Farley Reunion Family Tree 2015 by rentnarb
Farley Reunion Family Tree 2015
My aunt was in charge of the Farley Family Reunion this year in 2015 and she contacted me to make a tree that would then be printed with thumb prints from each family member.  

I put it up here to make it available for everyone that want to pick up a canvas or print you can buy one here! Click on the little orange bag and it will connect you to where you can buy one for your own wall in a variety of sizes and other options.  

Here is a link to the version without the leaves if you wanna get a blank one to fingerprint with your own family. rentnarb.deviantart.com/art/Fa…

Family Tree Leafless by rentnarb
Family Tree Leafless
My aunt was in charge of a family reunion and for a fun activity she asked for a bare tree that the family could put their thumbprints on as the leaves.  Of course, being the fanboy that I am I had to add something geeky and I threw Baby Groot near the roots.  

USE IT FOR YOUR FAMILY REUNIONS.

If you want to sue this as your Family Tree activity I am totally okay with you ordering a print and using it for your own family reunion and printing it.  Let me know how it turned out for you cuz I'd love to hear about it. 

I will add the thumbprinted version when I get the file ready to upload. Here ya go; check out the finished tree. rentnarb.deviantart.com/art/Fa…

Peter Pan the Vampire #1 Page 15

Read my comic for free (2 pages per month). 

Here is page 15 of Peter Pan the Vampire #1 the tale of how Peter meets a new slayer. The slayer was trying her hardest to stake Peter, but he got her to calm down a bit. He actually convinces her to stop trying to kill him and they sit down at a cafe to talk it over. I had this moment in my head for a long time where he tells her he is Peter Pan and she thinks he's joking. I struggled for a very long time on how I would do the flashback story part. I wanted it to look cartooney yet I also had to avoid it looking anything like the Disney version. I settled on having my daughter who was 8 at the time draw it and inserted her drawings into the story. I had plans for her to draw her own story that tied into my universe here, but she is super busy with school, dance, and guitar classes and I have no idea if she'll finish the book she started because she wants to redo all the pages she has already completed. You'll never finish if you keep restarting.

What will happen next?

I hope that I see a bunch of ya at DRAW NIGHT on Friday the 3rd of July at the Tremonton City Library here in Utah. I have posted a flyer for that and created an event on the rentnarb page if you want to check that out.
