View Full Version : Sketches - "Vigne Vierge"
06-11-2005, 04:24 PM
Here I present some of my sketches (mostly colour images) for my new comicbook "Vigne Vierge". It's a story about a world that, briefly speaking, is a Dream of a Giant Ash. I'm still gathering ideas fot the world itself. I hope you enjoy it.

i really like your works. Nice style and use of lines. What program do you use? Do you use a tablet or mouse it?
The only thing I can see to critique is the bunnies feet. You cell shade everything else, but in those you can still see the pencil shading. Other than that, good job... are you going to post more>?

Thanks for the opinion. For the question how I make it, here's the anwser: I scan my pencil drawings, then work on them with a program called XaraX. Previously I inked the lines before scaning but I found that I liked the pencil-character pictures more.
The reason that I haven't shaded the bunnies feet (who is called Cecil) is that the blue collor is the shade itself. But I got your point, the unshaded surface is little to big.
And offcourse I'm gonna post more. Very soon.

Its that a bunny? I thought its a squirl... Nice style, good mood. I really would like to see more to give an apropriate crit but its already looking pretty original. Keep it going.

Yes, it really is a squirrel. The man sitting on it is called Journaliste. The person who is talking to him is Porteur, messenger of death.
Here are some more of my sketches. Also from "Vigne Virge".
First is Vanagas, or Vana for short. It is the same person who is sleeping on the first picture (the main story character by the way). In this sketch we see her swimming in the Water of Knowledge, that flows inside the Great Ash.
Second picture is some sketches of clothes for Vana.
Thanks for all opinions.

Beautiful work. The girl turned out to be more like a young woman aldo I was expecting a teenager. But I can't say its a unpleasant surprise. Names and atmosphere reminds me of "The Last Journey", one of the best quests I played and a bit about "La Cite des Enfants Perdu".

beautiful style and original concepts. it really feels comic-like to me.

Thank you all once more. You could call the girl (Vana) a teenager. She have ended 18 Blossoms (years in my World*). Here I post some of her portraits. The second picture is not actually from Vigne Vierge. It's a picture of my friend and co-worked in building of World of Dreams.
Being compare to "La Cite des Enfants Perdu" (even a little bit :)) is a great honour to me. Thank you.
*In the World of Dreams, there are no year seasons, as the climat is constant for whole time. But each 154 Breaths (days in my World) the Great Ash becomes covered with flowers.

Very interesting ideas and adopted style as I already said. Maybe you'll share more of this world with us.

Well, it's hard to put a hole world in just few words. I think it will do better if I will let my sketches talk for me, with me just describing them.
The next picture presents Homme de la Rue (the one on the right) and Griffe. They are members of an organization "Childrens of Prophecy", that wants to overthrown gods and give power to the people. Homme and Griffe have, offcourse, their own reasons.
The second sketch is a portait of Portuer, who, as I mentioned before, is a messenger of Death. He's role is to bring dead people to the Kingdom of Silence - Racine. He's not very happy about that.
At the beginning there was Seed.

Do you have any reasons for choosing the cartoony shader or this is what suits you best?
10-11-2005, 11:04 PM
Reasons? No. It's just what I like. It seems more dynamic this way, I think.
This time it is not a scene from "Vigne Vierge", but a page from my another comic-book. It tells about two thiefs: Marco Sharps and Kayleigh Servadio. The dialogs are in Polish, as it is my national langauge.
It's done with the same technique. Pencil - scan - XaraX on computer.
