Winter of my Heart - Graphic Novel Concept

These are just a few visual designs for what I hope to be a graphic novel some day. I've been working on this project on and off again for several years, but it's never been so close to becoming a reality as it is now. As sketches are rolling out, I'll explain more of the story, but for now, enjoy this first little peek into something that's going to be a lot of fun when it's done.

Childhood Explored

The Pagemaster was one of my favorite movies as a kid. In experimenting with coloring and drawing techniques, these characters came to mind. The simplicity is something I love to play with. I'll probably sketch more like this someday.

Character Studies - Notra and Oa

These two were really fun to sketch. And again, it's alway fun to play with photoshop! Of course, they're discussing something important...

Sea Bite - Main Character Studies

This was mostly playing with Photoshop again, building up my skill-set with the program. It's a story idea that I may never fully pursue, but it's worth sketching even the most simple ideas every now and again. if nothing else, I'm learning new techniques to color something else!

Archer - Colored

I posted a sketch a short time ago that I really enjoyed making. After playing with photoshop for a bit, I was able to color it. I think the end result was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it! His cape was the most fun, I'll admit. In work to come I'd like to work with more background elements.

Nostalgique - Final Pick For Senior Film Idea

I've finally decided to work with this concept for my senior film. It's a story of a ballerina who never got to have her last dance before her tragic end, but gets her chance when a custodian comes to restore her theatre. I can't wait to get started! Here are some concept art for the main character Gabriel (the custodian) and the ballerina he dances with, Chantal.
