I recently started my next comic, but I’ve been pretty lazy on it and only did the first page or so. Bah! I’ll get back to it soon. Now’s a good time to tell you guys what it’s about, though.
When I wrote my post “A Quest for a Pen”, I suddenly got an idea, as if slapped by a Muse. A metaphorical journey to become an artist, learning new skills, practicing those skills, and also finding the perfect tools. It gave me the idea of a world drained of color and happiness, and a young girl finds a beautiful, colorful bird that remembers what it used to be like when the whole world had color. So she and the bird go on a quest to restore color and happiness to everyone. Along the way, she’ll find weapons to use against evil, such as a magical eraser for destroying evil Smudges. She’ll also get other tools, including an inking pen and such. I haven’t decided on all of it yet.
Also, the comic is going to start off in black and white except for the bird. Artsy and inexpensive! As it goes on, I will add colors and such, perhaps up until the main characters defeat the main evil creature/person/whatever. I am quite excited about this project, despite the fact that I’m slacking on it. I should get back to writing the script and designing the characters soon, I hope.
