Hi guys! I make lots of comics and hope you guys take a look at my sci-fi comic series, Lone Star!

Here on dA I really get to cut loose and have some fun with my super geeky and dorky side. I particularly love Final Fantasy VII, Ghost in the Shell, and Halo.
I also have an original comic series I'm starting up called Lone Star. Please take your time and enjoy the artwork I've made for it :D

I get a bit obsessive/compulsive about my drawings. You'll hopefully see them improve with time as I force myself to get better! Thanks for bearing with my discrepancies in the meantime.

Lone Star - Travis by DrAssenov

Researching for writing your own sci-fi is really fun, but can be pretty overwhelming at times. There are scenes in the Lone Star that are very technical and require some understanding of physics and astrobionautics. This means that while drama and love and romance are easy for me to write, creating them in a complicated future-real-world space setting is not very easy at all. It's a wonderful challenge and I'm doing my best to tackle this giant project of problem-solving.

Bromsonn Study Group - Color by DrAssenov

Have you guys ever attempted to write any sci-fi and really got stuck on something? How did you handle it? I'm really trying to not use "space magic" as a cop-out. Sci-Fi is fun because the authors who do a great job in trying to immerse you in a world that has consistent laws of nature and behavior is a really unique experience. "How do I brush my teeth in zero-G? What would my hair look like? Why do I get so nauseated in space? What do space bathrooms look like? How is gravity even a thing in the first place?!" These are all very fascinating problems that lead to the discovery of why humans are constructed the way they are. Then when you put them in space, you begin to really respect what a wonderful planet the Earth really is. Constructing a mini-habitat that people have to live in for extended periods of time presents many challenges --

I present to you...
MY INCOMPLETE LIST OF CHALLENGES FOR ASTRONAUTS IN SPACE:


1. What freak accidents do I need to be aware of that would be fine on Earth but catastrophic in space

2. What kinds of artificial mechanisms do we need to install to process waste/oxygen/etc 

3. How long can I live until I GO INSANE from not being surrounded by my natural habitat and companions back on Earth

4. How many supplies do I need to live for X amount of time

5. How much fuel do we need to deliver those supplies

6. Am I going to get brain cancer from all this radiation

7. How do I deal with microgravity's deleterious effects on my body and mind and will I ever be the same when I return home

8. What should space shuttles be shaped like if they don't need to be aerodynamic

9. How many G's can the human body take to accelerate comfortably during long-distance travel

10. What if I hate my crewmates but I'm stuck with them for months

11. What if my crewmate goes crazy and they can't perform their critical functions for the mission

12. How do I deal with injuries and illness in space outside the comforts of a Level-1 Trauma Center on Earth

13. What if I fall in love with my crewmate but then I'm totally friend-zoned

AND SO ON

So much to study! I will keep posting concept art and character thingies. I'm also working on my website that will have a really cool space-theme. I'll let you know when it launches. *chuckle*

Strong Work! by DrAssenov
