Pencils McPencilton

Finally we're back to my baby, my graphic novel, StrangeHearted. I'm starting to pencil the rest of the original 48-page storyline. The thing you have to remember here is that I pencil small (my finished pencils are only 6x9) and then scan them and blow them up to 10x15. Once they're printed, there is actually a lot of redrawing that happens before I start inking.

Anyway, here are the next five pages of finished pencils that I've done thus far:

Remember, the first ten finished pages can be viewed at my DeviantArt gallery: romanykate.deviantart.com

Yarr... here be some sketches of characters from an Oni book by the name of 'Polly and the Pirates.'

The story is about this prim and proper little girl that discovers she's actually the daughter of the pirate queen. She gets kidnapped a couple of times and becomes the new captain of her mum's old ship and has a jolly good adventure saving everyone from certain doom while searching for her mother's treasure trove. Here's a character sheet for Polly in her pirate regalia.

Characters (c) Oni and Ted Naifeh.

Anthology funtimes

Here's the rough thumbnails of my entry for the SCAD Sequential Art anthology. This year's theme being biography, I decided to tell the story of Juan Diego, who saw the first apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico.

Interesting story: Since I was running low on time, I took the thumbnails you see here, blew them up to 10x15, changed them to blue line and inked directly over them. I was definitely a... weird process. But I'd like to think it turned out well in the end. Although, I still don't know whether it got in or not... but I will keep you posted :)

Also, the finished product can be seen in my DeviantArt Gallery here: romanykate.deviantart.com

Back to school

Oi vey it's been a while. There's been a lot going on, so my apologies for the lack updates. Believe you me, I have been working and over the next few days I'll be posting many sketches for your furthered enjoyment. Now, to business!

Sooo my friends music video didn't get selected as a finalist, but I'm still glad that I got a chance to work with her again and the opportunity to add more storyboards to my portfolio. Here are some character and environment sketches from the music video concept:
