I originally created this image as a banner for Comic Anthology 2054's facebook-gruop. I really like how it turned out, and it's the first time I try drawing directly at a black background. Kinda makes me wanna do a whole comic this way (as if I'll ever have time for that).
More character design! Remember to always bring laser-bazooka when you’re gonna go hunting for mutants.
Harriet and Sigvard
First character concept for a new Witch-Hunt comic I’m considering making for our new comic anthology project (following “7 October” and “03:51”). Even tough it would be fun to make another chapter featuring the same characters as before (I actually have half finished manuscript for a longer sequel, but it feels like a little too much work, for something I mainly consider as a side project), I’m pretty sure I’ll be aiming for a new story and new characters to better fit the theme of the anthology.
For some reason I choose to draw these characters in a very cartoonish style, and I think they turned out nice, though it probably won’t be representative for the final comic, since it’ll probably follow the style as Witch-Hunt and Witch-Hunt: Apocalypse.
Harriet is a young woman living a simple and quite ordinary life, until one day a magical talking platypus, named Sigvard, arrives from the future bearing the word that Harriet inherits the power of magic through a long bloodline of powerful witches.
Set to be her tutor, the platypus bestows upon her the equipment worthy of a mage, including a wand, a hat and an ancient spellbook.
This is, however, just the first step in Sigvards mission to ensure Harriet learns the arts of high magic and fulfills her destiny to one day become the true lord of all evil.
But yeah, I haven’t really decided what to make for the new anthology yet. I have a couple of more concepts in development, and some sketches might be coming up in the near future.
Cats on Mars - 2013
So, the internet still loves cats, right?
I made this long ago, but lost the sketch and found it again just recently, and decided to finish it up because I kinda liked it.
I know the title is kind of mis-representative, since they’re not actually cats on mars, they’re cats in space. “Cats on Mars” however, is a reference to a song by The Seatbelts from the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack. Also “cats in space” doesn’t really have the same ring to it.
Might put some color on it, but right now I just really like how it turned out in black and white.
First finished page for Iron Born (not the first chronologically). Thought I’d share it, if only to prove for people that I’m actually working on a comic. I’ve been talking on and off about this project for about a year, but until recently it’s been little more than a bunch of concept-sketches.
I’ll have to pick up pace so that I can finish about two pages a week, this one took way to much time. Most time I spent trying to draw horses, understanding how to add speech balloons in Manga Studio, and editing details I forgot to add in the original page.
Anyways, it feels really good to finally have time to work on this, though I get the feeling I’m really going to miss seeing sunlight this summer.
