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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
