dc.description.abstract <p>I created a 26-page comic book, created to be a teaser trailer into a ongoing series. In my work, I sought to create rich, dynamic characters that functioned in a fantasy world grounded in reality. Special care was given to create logical costumes and destroy common tropes found in fantasy literature. I also worked to improve my technical skills in drawing the dynamic figure on motion, my understanding of color, and composition.</p> <p>I broke my project down into two semesters. In the fall, I created the sketch work for the pages. This included small panel thumbnails, research (architectural, kinetic, photographic, and costume), and 11x17 bristols in both blue pencil and graphite. After the blue sketch layer was finished, I used a light table to refine my sketches. In the spring, Stefanie Dao became my assistant, creating traditional linework with a Crow 102 nib pen. I then scanned in the pages and colored them digitally. Lastly, the lettering and content was flowed in. During this process, additional content was generated that included ideation, character sketches, costume exploration, color studies, and additional story.</p> <p>This comic book will be pitched to comic publishers in the summer of 2014.</p>
