Not that I didn’t like the old postcard but ever since I finished Lily and Zen’s covers I wanted to do one of just the ladies of Illegal Tender. After all the comic is mainly about them… the boys are just there for eye candy and comic relief. For those who don’t know my girls from left to right:
Zen Love – super speed
Lily Breland – energy manipulation
Del Landau – super strength
Sonya Dey – Telekinesis and Telepathy
Issue #1 will be available for digital download 2016!!
Happy November! Getting closer to 2016 means getting closer to the release of the remastered issue #1. These page needed a minimum of fixes but they came out great!
Illegal Tender issue #1: Nice to Know You will be available for digital purchase soon!!
Finally finished Zen’s cover. I’m thinking about adding a kind of speed effect to hers but I dunno. She looks pretty cool like this.
Illegal Tender now has a live Kickstarter campaign! If you love the comic (or the creator) donate what you can – check out the rewards or simply watch the video I made featuring awesome original music!

I there’s anything that will get Zen out of bed fast it’s her mother’s cooking. Speaking of which Olina got a make over. The only picture I ever drew of her she looked too much like her daughters and that was a little weird. I’m always going on about how black people come in all different shades so I decided to put my money where my mouth is. They’re not drastically different from one another in the color department but I decided Zen was going to resemble her father more – even though I may never draw him. Serenity also got a bit of a do-over she is now the same complexion as their father who is also where they get their green eyes. I still wanted her hair to be super big. I can’t remember what age I said she was before but now she’s 12.

So much fan service on one page – I think I may have over done it. No? Alright, I can live with it. I never get to show these two together so I decided to give them an entire page just to spotlight their relationship in the actual comic. The last times in issue #2 and #3 it was only implied. Well here it is, in full color. they’re been together the longest of all the I.T. couple but Del and Zen don’t actually live together.
I also want everyone to see the difference between Zen and Sonya and their relationships with their mother’s. Notice how Zen has her in the her phone contacts as ‘Mommy’ – Sonya had her mother in as just ‘mom’. While Zen eagerly answers a call from her mother Sonya avoided it over five times. I got that from my own life actually. I’m a full grown woman but I still call my mother ‘mommy’ instead of mom. For a while I thought it was a racial thing – most of my white friends refer to their mother’s as just ‘mom’ where literally ALL of my black friends still say ‘mommy’ or ‘momma’ no matter how old they are. ‘Mom’ just always seemed so impersonal to me – like their not that close for some reason.
Anyway, enjoy this lead-in fanservice page – see y’all next week
