Next Exit gang by MediaViolence Next Exit gang by MediaViolence
Going thru old HD with forgotten art and comics. Was looking for pages for these guys, but found their old chara designs and found the revamps I did last year.

No one here probably read Next Exit (which is why I stopped working on it lolz) but it was my first really on-going comic. 9 issues (I think?) and one collected graphic novel before I left SLG.

I really want to restart their comic someday, but it's a long adventure comic and no one wants to even risk a single volume "OEL" these days soooo who knows when or if it'll ever get redone!

My fave chara actually didnt get redesigned because I still love him as-is lol, here's a link to the most recent pic of him:

*waves hand frantically* I READ IT I READ IT!! I own ALL the issues <3 Well erm...sorry not anything after volume 1. I have issues 7-10 (it goes to 10 actually!), and I really miss these guys! Though I can understand why you won't work on them at the moment.

Love the new designs though!! <3

Awww thank you! I hope you'll check out the new comic I'm working on when it's finally available, it's more of a duo/couple adventure in the same vein as NE! (no idea when I'll be posting it, but hopefully w/in the year!)

I still have every printed copy of NE on my bookshelf, including the graphic novel. It will always be one of my favorites! I always wondered what happened to them, if you restarted the series, I don't even know, I'd probably pee my pants from excitement!

I read NE like a cultist because I loved it so much. Sure, I did the same with RE:Play, but it was more hardcore with NE as it was so....real to me I guess? It's hard to explain what it was but I loved it to a degree that is almost unreal. So, if it does ever come back know that I will def be going after it!

I bought all the available issues of Next Exit right from the hands of SLG's editor at a tiny con in Fremont, CA about...a bazillion (5-7 years?) ago! Markesh was my favourite because I liked his face. :meow:

I found you through RE:play, and honest to god, that series affected me not only with how I develop my own plots but in how I draw my own material. In a way, reading your comics taught me how to draw, and no other manga-ka has influenced me more. I love seeing your work.

MediaViolence Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012  Professional General Artist
Oh...ha ha ha um, thanks? But really learning to draw from a stylized artist is...pretty bad. Especially when it's me, because I don't really do things right :x can I do things right? Yes, but do I? Not all the time lol, I'm a really shitty role model. Sorry.

:iconcursedwhiteblankness:
CursedWhiteBlankness Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
no need to apologize. I didn't just learn from you, I have lots of realism background, but sometimes stylized isn't so bad. I prefer stylized more often than not. Don't be so hard on yourself Christy, art isn't just one style or one genre. Like you said, it's a choice how you do things.
Besides, realism can be a pain in the ass. Screw it, if I wanted to see a realistic image, I'd look at a photo. ^^;

Doors and Next Exit was how I got hooked on your art style. I actually have all the issues of Next Exit. I really hope that you will re-do it some day, because oh man, I loved Race, and we barely got a taste of him before you stopped /sadpanda

Next Exit Has, Is, and FOREVER WILL BE my favorite comic. ^-^ I'm only miss the 5 issues that make up the graphic novel. It sucks that you had to stop working on it. T^T
Edge: <w< >w> Where's Race? He was the shit. >w<. (Omni: In the Link.) Oh. thank love.*click* Yes still a badass.
Omni: Retrab is so cool.
Zane: It's amazing how different they look. And yet still, well, amazing.
Zage: The worse part about your comic ending was the cliff hanger. (Me: I have to make sure his not around when re-read them or he flips. ) I DON'T FLIP! (Edge: Hey Zage. *holds up tenth issue aka the last one.*) Hmm? *reads it and Punch's off Edge's head, which he regrows back instantly* Okay I may overact.

I don't understand why you don't just do it as a web comic, get advertisers, make a couple bucks that way and keep the story going while growing your fan base for it.
