Here are a couple of concepts I worked on for two characters from the comic I'm writing.
Wow. Seeing them together is kinda cool. I've been writing about these characters, but I've never seen them side by side.
Taking a look at this also made me realize how weird they look together without knowing the story. It's not really a secret I want to keep! I don't feel comfortable sharing anything else regarding my work mainly because I don't want to make any false promises... For now, I guess I can tell you that Adelina is a college student who wants to save her church from getting closed down, so she decided to get a job at a cat cafe. And Cavalier Guy... Well, he's... he's a mysterious guy, but is also a regular customer at this cat cafe...
(btw I forgot to add Cavalier Guy's hat until last minute, so I had to draw it really quick lol, so the hat looks kinda weird. I left it out so I can see what his hairstyle would be... despite his name... xD)
Remarks: This is the level of sketching and inking that I'm at. My characters have definitely gotten better within the passed year, namely due to practice with gestures. There's a lot more practice to be done. (as always.) I've learned quite a bit of theory, and now I think the rest will come with dedicated practice. I've begun seeing things not only as forms, but shapes (plus I've been trying my hand at painting and, wow, knowing what I know now, I have a heck of a lot more appreciation for painters and master artists).
Alas, comics are calling my name. I've got stories to tell and comics seem like a great way to tell them.Back
