With the increase in behind the scenes activity Dominant Species is moving forward and it is time to reveal more to this survival horror IP.

In the ancient times, man stood apart from the beasts that shared the Earth and chose to turn away from the forest and open the land to a plague of civilization. The Earth was marked for extinction, lands leveled flat over miles. Once a place of simple primal competition, mankind brought new wars to Earth, tipping the scales of natural order, science battling the ways of both beast and nature. Man's drive and ambition cut deep into the heart of the globe, Mother Earth howling her pain at the moon, echoing through space, stars, and infinity.

Touching the ears of something far worse

A rumbling growl from the darkest corners of beyond, scouts from the black depths of the primal heart, the call of the beast at the core of creation.

Nothing remains from the time of their coming, the Earth a warped reflection of its tropical paradises, the strength of beasts growing over all four corners of the globe. From the stars, under a blood red moon, came the dogs of war, the wolves and their howls piercing the dreams of man and beast, calling out a new age of blood and dominance to the strongest species.

Today the Wolves control most of the Earth, the last human cities stand in feeble refuges scattered across the globe, struggling to survive. Man is nothing more than prey, waiting to be killed. The Wolves make preparations for a coming doom to the feeble species that thrive here, they howl for a cleansing in blood to pave the way for the arrival of their great alpha from the heavens.

Those who stood against the Werewolves, brave fighters trying to reclaim the globe, are few in number and occupied by the daily trials, face the inevitable of bringing Werewolves and humans head to head, for the final battle of man and beasts to becoming the Dominant Species.
This Illustration was penciled by me and the Digital Painting was painted majority by the superb :iconmaskedriderkc: with additional Digital Painting touches :iconukitakumuki: and final touches by me. These two painters really outdid themselves and I couldn't be more proud of them!

:iconmaskedriderkc:, is a highly skilled Artist that I am so glad to have on the DS production team and will be doing the interior art pages via digital paining!

:iconukitakumki: is one of those rare gems you wish you had hidden away where you could just go in and peak at to see how well its shining. Kai's input and visual direction helped solidify this illoe and has taught me some invaluable lessons about capturing visual atmosphere. I will continue to seek his guidance.

Writer:icondarklorddc: will be the one in the Scriptors seat and his script for issue one already has me & others jumping off the walls with anticipation!

This DS Production Team will & has exceeded EVERY expectation I have for the story!

More to come as events unfold!
I also suggest reviewing the comments below as I answer them and reveal bits more to DOMINANT SPECIES's story.

I would like to end this write up with a recent quote from a good and close friend :icondirtbomb: about the DS title:

"Dominant Species has a question embedded in it, you don't know who the Dominant Species is, but inherently if you are asking that question it cant be good."

Thanks Everyone & please comment!

who are the large armored ones behind the humans?
ChuckWalton Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thank You for asking! They are two soldiers of the armored infantry adorned in Sindelarian Strike Phantom Power Armors (FPA-Phantom 16 - Fighter Power Armor - Phantom 16).  They are well armed for long range and melee combat, and equipped with an array of sensors and equipment to survive against the array of formidable monsters that lurk in Dominant Species.  The Fortress city of Sindelar manufacturers them to fight the Werewolves and whatever else that threatens the safety of mankind.  

When it is all said and done however, people will soon feel that even the deadly power armors are not enough against the Wolves.

This is AMAZING. Where could one find more information about this game? My google-fu has failed me!
ChuckWalton Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thank You kindly! There will be a ton more of info on DOMINANT SPECIES, via a website. DS is going to be a comic book/graphic novel first, with the objective of licensing for additional opportunities i.e.: table top game, video game, animation, toys, model kits, etc. For best results in googling info about Dominant Species, I would suggest looking up chuck walton or charles walton along with dominant species for future searches.

Please have your comic sold in California, i SO wanna read it! And if you make it a game PLEEEEEASE make it for xbox :squeeeplz: i'll totally support this both ways! I love the story and that character design it top notch ^^
ChuckWalton Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thank You so much and indeed I plan to have it available in California for certain! "If" it is licensed as a video game, then I will be thrilled to have the opportunity to see it on any major platform, Xbox, PS4 & or PC!!! These are major feats to accomplish but enough energy regarding the comic books and with the right support and connections, the appropriate network and licensing could indeed make this a video game reality. 
Glad you love the story as it is something that has been honed for many years and I'm extremely happy with the final results and now its time to dive into the production phase. Thank you for the character design compliment! I have been very particular about them as there is just so much to compete against nowadays, and to define a cast that will stick out among the plethora of great concept art and designs is a very hard task. That was the part that has taken me the longest to develop.

Well i love a good comic so I'll be purchasing it ^^

Im actually happy to hear that. It always that the tales that were perfected over years are the ones worth waiting for. And yes i understand you wanting your designs to stick out and i have to say from what ive seen they Definitely do :nod:

Best of luck to you :) Hope everything works out!
