Midwinter




[Midwinter] Face Off by Deus-Nocte

:iconmwlogo1plz::iconmwlogo2plz::iconmwlogo3plz:

Midwinter is an ongoing, original graphic novel that meshes science fiction and fantasy.

Cyberization is thriving while magic tries to break free of its longstanding stigma. A new miracle drug, asterite, has emerged as a genetic modifier and gives new life to the incurable.

Housing the ample supply of asterite it does, Gemini Hospital makes for a tantalizing target, and attacks on the facility are only becoming more aggressive and desperate.

Nox--a powerful arcanist--goes after the hospital to steal the drug, but ends up gaining permanent employment to protect them instead. Unfortunately, with a background like his, Nox needs to build up trust among staff in order to perform his increasingly difficult duties.

Along the way, he discovers that despite being the one with the steepest criminal record, there are those around him that safeguard even more dangerous secrets: some personal, some classified, and some that will question the very institution he’s working for.

Though I am primarily an illustrator at the moment, I aspire to one day
make a living off of creating graphic novels. As you can see, my page is littered
with art from "Midwinter", which is the manga I'm producing with a small band of
awesome people called ReVision Studios :D I am the lead artist and
secondary writer for the project.

All commissions are closed, sorry guys!

if you need to contact me outside of DA, feel free to drop me an e-mail!

I have a Tumblr too:

[Midwinter] Turning Point by Deus-Nocte
[Midwinter] Turning Point
Kinda forgot to put these here, but I made some posters out of the comic pages (or sections of them). They're high res enough to accommodate that, so I thought: why not! Added a bit of color to each one, too. If you're one of those who likes seeing detail in the comic work we do, you'll probably like these. :)

+ + +

This one's the lower half of pg71. I kinda struggled with deciding if I should post/display such a crucial page and turn it into a print, but I decided to go ahead with it because Pendiah is a badass and it's honestly my favorite page out of the ones I've drawn so far. Even if you haven't read it, I'm hoping it entices you a little :v

This is the top part of pg49--if you watch us on facebook or tumblr, you probably saw this at one point (more than likely in black and white). This face off between Mark and Nox is one of my favorites, and I'm really happy with how it came out.

This is pg1, something I'm sure most of you have seen if you read the preview. Though it's not as exciting as the other two, I thought it was pretty scenic and would work well. Massive props to Nytrinhia for doing the backgrounds on this page!

OFF by Deus-Nocte

I really got into the game "OFF" back when Markiplier was doing a Let's Play of it--I was instantly enthralled by the style and the nuances of the game. I ended up playing it myself and just really loved it... the concepts are really interesting and the atmosphere was done REALLY WELL. It's as odd as the name suggests.

Originally I just wanted to sketch the batter, but this was one of those times that the composition just flowed so easily from my hands. I figured I'd have an excuse to keep working on it if I made it a print, so it'll be sold at Nebraskon which is coming up this week~

I really wanted to give it my own flair while preserving the original style. I hope I gave it justice!

Enjoy~

Hey guys! This deviation will allow you to buy Chapter 1 with points. Points 

If you'd rather buy it with real money for $3.99, we encourage you to do so HERE!

The point cost converts to $5 to make up for the 20% that DeviantART takes with each transaction. Hopefully it won't make or break your decision to buy! Sorry for the inconvenience.

So cool to meet you and discover Midwinter. I was the one who came by like three times and fangirled for Nox really hard. Heheh. I finally got a moment to read the first chapter when I got home from Nebkon, and I really love it. I look forward to more! Keep up the amazing work!

Ahhh!! I'm so happy you like it! (And enough to come find me on DA.) Thanks for stopping by, it was a joy to meet you. It's always so great to see other people drawn to the characters and start to love them as much as I do! Luckily there's no shortage of Nox here--you'll find all the pics you saw in my portfolio here and some others you haven't seen. :P

OH, and you must watch the trailer I made for the Kickstarter we had back in March. Nox has a voice... and I'm sure you'll like it.

Did I forget to wish you a happy birthday? I think I forgot, but I can't recall if I forgot, but if I did forget, happy (very) belated birthday ^^;

you're quite welcome.

I know you're super busy, but have you ever considered an 'ask a character' bit / mini-comic? (random question, right? I'm full of 'em)

And Nox is gracing two screens for my work computer with his offerings of chocolate-covered strawberries, wine, cheese, and crackers =D

We actually have considered that! We're thinking it could be an extra in one of the volumes--who knows, maybe volume 1. I'll make sure to post a journal or something when we're accepting questions. :nod:

And that is awesome. I'm really glad you like that pic so much! (it's gotta be one of my favs, too)
