NEW PAGES
A WEEK EARLY!
The Webcomic List

Check out the Eternal Knights spinoff/prequel Tiffany & Rex here:


Hi, my name is Caley Tibbittz.

I make Eternal Knights, the BEST superhero comic on the web. Wholly
original, but also like an Irish Wonder Woman with a British accent lead-
ing faerie vampire X-Men as written for Buffy, Angel, Torchwood, and
Warren Ellis fans like me.

lease visit my Patreon page and become a supporter of
Eternal Knights today --
there are so many great rewards, and you
get to read new pages a WHOLE WEEK EARLY!
Help me quit my day job and bring you new pages more often!


I have always loved drawing and telling stories, and am realizing my
dream of producing Eternal Knights, a comic about a suicidal immortal super-
heroine who finds reasons to live -- and a way to die. It is written to
appeal to the sensibilities of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Doctor Who,
Torchwood, Gargoyles, and Warren Ellis fans like me, but remains boldly
original.

I work very hard to keep the writing, art, and production value as high
as if my readers were buying Eternal Knights off the comic store shelf --
but between caring for my wife (who suffers from severe cerebral palsy) and
my taxing and time-consuming call center day job, it is very difficult for
me to consistently produce timely updates.

With your help, I can quit my $10/hr day job and produce new Eternal
Knights content full-time, faster and more often. If you can't help, don't
worry -- the webcomic will keep updating as often as possible and will re-
main free to read online. But if you can help, I've got some great exclu-
sive rewards for your help in making my life's work my new super-awesome
full-time day job -- including getting to read new pages a WHOLE WEEK
early on Patreon for my $3 (up and) supporters!

Thanks for reading!

Soup sock,
-Caley

P.S. If you'd rather not Patreon for whatever reason, but would still like to
help me out with coloring and art supply costs because of how awesome you
are, you can always
instead. Even $1 helps!

Wow. Amazing art. The image reads so beautifully even upside down and just in black and white.

Thanks so much! I'm really excited about this cover, it was long process to get to that image. Someday I'll post the thumbnails as a sort of evolutionary chart. All the others were just so close...

Don't know why anybody would unsubscribe from this. I'm subscribed! Great artwork and storyline!

Tibbittz
Thanks! I especially love the people who like the story; I certainly try hard-ish with the pics, but the story's my favorite part. It's why the art even arts in the first place.
TheSmilingPsycho 20th Aug 2012, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
TheSmilingPsycho
Same here. I put story first above anything. The only reason I spend so much time on the art is to make it eye catching enough for people to start reading my comic.

But your art is perfection. I think you should be working for Marvel or something.

I'd like to work for Marvel, but really only if I could draw Dragon Man. Or Spider-man.

Thank you! I really enjoyed your comic, by the way. I think I left a comment somewhere...

Did she got her right arm cut?
After all, your artwork is a masterpiece
Tibbittz 10th Oct 2012, 1:48 PM edit delete reply
Tibbittz
Thank you, really.

And if you look at how her cape is flowing, you'll notice her other arm is also missing. The cover depicts a fall she takes after losing her limbs in issue #1 -- but does she survive in a book called ETERNAL Knights? Who knows, my friend... who even knows.

this looks really nice colored :D your art is soo pretty :D

Tibbittz
Thanks! My colorist originally did the moon and sky all realistic, and I had to say "No, I don't think you understand, they have to be RIDICULOUSLY YELLOW and UNREALISTICALLY PURPLE here."

She did a FANTASTIC job. Every time she sends me a new page, she reminds me why I'm not coloring this myself.

Thanks for the sub!!

I really like your art, you draw like a pro. I haven't read much of your comic yet, but I'll be sure to read the backlog.

That is one beautiful and arresting cover.
Tibbittz 11th Dec 2013, 3:39 PM edit delete reply
Tibbittz
Thank you!

It was a challenge to come up with the right shot; this was originally in the script, but I changed it so she falls/dies off camera.

While thumbnailing, I came back to the idea of her smiling at the prospect of death; when I hit upon the idea of combining an inversion of a fairly standard "hero pose", I knew I had a winner.

Plus, ooh, complimnetary colors!

g'day mate i'm new to webcomics but have been reading comics for years (Namely Punisher max)I was looking for something in a similar vein online with great artistry and graphic violence when I came across eternal knights. I must say that I am in love with your comic. It is exactly the fix I needed. Cant wait to read more!
Tibbittz 19th Dec 2013, 12:21 PM edit delete reply
Tibbittz
Knowing how widely well-regarded Punisher Max is, this is quite a compliment, thank you.

I work very hard to give my readers the production values of a print comic, and I'm happy when I'm hearing it's paying off.

I hope you enjoy the new issue starting in January.

Thank you! I tried hard to come up with something splashy and original. And as yellow and purple as possible.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the book as well.:)

I want to know how do you actually make it look so professional. I can draw well and all, but does it take a certain program on your computer? I'm new to doing webcomics. I'm a reader as of now, but I'm going to get a computer and start doing my own webcomic. I just wanted to know what to do cause your stuff looks epic. lol.
Tibbittz 8th Jul 2014, 10:37 AM edit delete reply
Tibbittz
First, thank you. Second, I use Photoshop (and Illustrator for lettering). The "professional" and "epic" look, well, that's me trying me best to meet the standards of popular artists like John Cassaday. Line for line, EK is maybe 2% computer generated, and 98% old fashioned ink on paper. I'd say try to keep your anatomy at least 85% on target, and really think about your compositions.

For example, I drew maybe 12 or more thumbnail sketches before settling on this as the cover. Usually it only takes one or two -- but don't settle if you have time not to. And good luck.:)
