Aw thanks! (Don’t worry, I really don’t have a problem with people comparing my work to other artists)
Yes! I would very much like to make short animations related to the graphic novel. One being an animated version of the prologue, another being a sort of pre-La Brea story about two characters that appear far into the actual comic. (made a short-description post about the idea here actually). But I’ve really procrastinated on learning how to animate with Adobe’s After Effects.
If I were to animate La Brea in its entirety, which I have thought about, I would probably have it made in CGI, and it’d look dramatically different than the current comic’s appearance.
Like time-lapsed recordings of artwork being completed.
I thought about making some, but they take a while for me to put together. But if people like watching that sort of thing, I could start screen-recording my bigger art pieces, and upload them at different times.
They’re all supposed to look similar to one another, they’re related meaning they’re from the same litter. A pack of siblings who just found it easier to stick together as adults. I tried to give them all slight but similar features. Schaa and Yichoa’s bodies are basically the same but she’s taller and her face is a bit longer, Ioa looks like a smaller big eared Schaa, Yichoa and Ioa’s mouths are the same shape, their eyes are all in the same relative location, very similar markings, ect. Haha, their names all share mostly the same letters too!
I could defiantly stretch their over all shapes more to reflect their different personalities though. I could also make a comparison sketch between Pack Ominous and the other “canid” characters who show up! In order to show some more variety, I don’t make too generic designs I promise!
AHH! I’m so flattered!!
Probably first I’ll attempt to get it digitally published (Kindle) but I would really like to have some copies in print, even if only like 30 are ever sold, at least so people who really like my work don’t need an internet connection to see it. If I do get that opportunity, La Brea will be one of the longest full-color graphic novels printed, being upwards of 340 consecutive pages.
I think having digital, hardcover, softcover, and even “pocket sized” options would be really neat to do! To give people the chance to save some money.
