Hey Everyone!

My name is Deniz Camp, and I'm here to introduce a project I've been working on called Cold Truths. Co-created with the fantastic Ralf Singh, I think it has kind of a unique blend of urban crime and grand fantasy. Here's how I describe it in our pitch:

Cold Truths
Written/Co-Created by Deniz Camp
Penciled/Inked/Co-Created by Ralf Singh

And if gaining the truth meant giving up everything else...would you pay that price?

Logline: A brother and sister race to stop a world-ending threat, but the secrets they uncover on the way could tear them apart. Itís Boondock Saints meets Lord of the Rings as we go on a globe-trotting adventure in this action-packed urban fantasy!

I'll be using this thread to show off some concept art, character designs, penciled/inked and lettered previews. I hope you enjoy!

Comments and feedback are always appreciated!

There are waaaay too many verbs in the first sentence of your logline. You keep changing the subject of the sentence, which makes it super confusing.

Logline of your logline: "Verbs threaten to change the subject noun which is the focal point of the sentence that is beginning to grow too long."

The art is decent, but I would probably find someone else to do the inks. If I was to guess, your artist is still trying to figure out how to translate his physical, pencil work into a digital medium right?

Yes, I felt a bit of that myself. Always tweaking!

All done digitally, actually!

I like the design sense in the character art and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the naturalistic body-type of the female character with the tats. I'm sick to death of juvenile misogynistic body plans in female comic characters. It's kind of hard to convince newcomers to comics that they aren't all made for fourteen-year-old boys when so many of the female characters look like porn stars.

Thanks, Apocryphagraphics! Yes, that was a very important point for both myself and Ralf, but especially Ralf. He was very adamant that you don't need to be sexualized to be attractive, and wanted to prove it right there on the page.

I think he succeeded!
