Awakening

17 comments
This is the first page for the comic I've been working on. It's part of a larger project that the Sony artists are contributing towards. The project is called the Exquisite Corpse, as per an old Victorian parlor game in which people contribute only a part to a larger drawing -- without being able to see the drawing in its entirety. However, the actual title of the comic book remains undecided. I guess we'll have a better idea when all the contributers turn in their pages.

I've already turned in my eight page story, and so I thought I would post page one. Lia Abbate had the story right before me, and she picked the theme with faeries. Since I love the subject of the faerie world, I decided to go along with her last panel. I soon realized I was drawing my own daughters, as they ended up being the inspiration for the characters. The name of my story is Awakening.

Wonderful as usual, Marcelo. Look forward to the book :D Btw, did you sold out on your sketchbook? I want to order a copy if you have a spare copy.. and if you ship internationally of course :)

All the best!

Brian Miller said...

Beautiful work! Can't wait to see the rest of it!

Charles, as for my sketchbook, I have to work something out. I was thinking of selling them on my blog, but apparently I'm going to need a sellers permit, and a business license -- for a small amount of income. Hardly seems worth it, so I may just end up selling them to a third party vendor. Not quite sure what I'm going to do just yet. Right now they're still just sitting in my studio.

Charles Santoso said...

woah.. so complicated :( Hope you find a good vendor to make it available for public - as I'm sure people are waiting for it :)

Thx for the kind words on my blog btw. You're too nice.

This looks like an interesting project.
You must be curious, how the story turns out ,after putting all the segments together!

Love those faries.

Awesome work as always, Marcelo. Can't wait to get ahold of the entire anthology! I'm glad to hear that everyone, even more managerial types like Lia were included!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Charles, I'll be coming up with some sort of solution.

Peter, Justin, Bob, Mauricio I'm glad you like the page.

Betsy, Henry, yeah, me too! We've been pushing out the deadline, and so we're having to wait even longer than we anticipated.

Patrick, I hope I do bump into you at the con. I'll be there on Thursday...with my family. It'll be the first time for my girls. You'll see the inspiration for my comic.

Marcos, thanks. I'm glad you can see my girls in the story. It wasn't a stretch by any means to put these pages together, because I already knew the characters!

Chris Bivins said...

right off the bat, the story is communicating the strong bond between the two sisters. I feel that bond will be tested and will show through as the story progresses. really cool that you took inspiration from your daughters as a basis for your story. bravo sir.
