- The webcomic this image was drawn for is now launched : [link]
I've been working with a friend on a webcomic story. And we have a date for the webcomic to be launched : September 14, 2010.
What's the story of this webcomic?
The webcomic, called "Namesake" goes as thus : "Did you ever wonder what would happen if you could really tumble down the rabbit hole and reach another world? Namesake is the story of two sisters who discover that traveling between worlds is real and necessary to keep the universe in balance."
The power of traveling thru worlds is passed down thru a name, and those who are named that way are chosen as the "universe" requires to fill out the gaps in the "stories". So you have "namesakes" or Alice (wonderland), Dorothy (Oz), Jack (Jack and the beastalk), Wendy (Peter Pan), Gerda (The snow queen). Various fairy tale worlds and stories are used, and the whole thing is going to be a mix of drama and humor. The "Namesakes" in the story aren't the "originals" from the fairy tales. They are, if anything, spiritual descendants.
This is the chapter drawing for the prologue.
The prologue is about the long dead Alice Lidell and Lewis Carroll, and the goal was to quote a bunch of Tenniel illustrations (from the original Alice books) with this drawing. Here are the drawings I mixed : [link][link] [link] [link]
I’ll be posting more drawings and an announcement when the webcomic starts in September.
If you are a fan of fun, adventure, creepy creatures and fairy tales, this is a webcomic for you. So I hope that you will all be willing to give the comic a try when it comes up.
