Three new pages for our round robin comic made by yours truly. This comic is a weird one. I’ve been drawing pages for it the last few years (4 now, I think) and it stars me and a few friends from my collage comics class. What’s it about? Uh, I’ll be damned if even one of us truly knows. It’s a mess of video game, anime and movie references. Oh, it’s in Swedish, naturally, as we all are from Sweden. Go here to read/look at the whole thing.
Well, anyone feel like taking the next page(s)? Hmm, maybe someone who hasn’t made a page in a while and was just reintroduced in the comic? (…..yeah, looking at you, Val :D )
“Old Ghost” has been picked up by 215 Ink!
It’s a supernatural spy thriller written by Mark Bertolini, co-created by Rolf Lejdegård, illustrated by me. And with a logo designed by Vic Boone creator Shawn Aldridge.
The comic will be released in four parts digitally as they come out, leading up to the release of the print version of the graphic novel. Some sneaky previews:
This is a comic drawn by a friend of mine. It looks great and I’m SO buying the print version of this when it’s released. Also check out his excellent sci-fi webcomic called Wayfar.
My fanart for the SPX 13-character (that is, Stockholms International Comics Festival) originally made by Loka Kanarp, the original which can be seen here.
I was so busy that I didn’t think I would make it but there it is.
I’m guessing those who have played Batman: Arkham City will get this.
For those of you who haven’t played it, here’s an explanation:
Every time you end a fight in the game everything goes into slow motion so that you can see Batman smash peoples faces better. Each time as the final blow connects you hear a loud thundering sound as if you were inside the bad guy’s head and Batman just broke both of your eardrums.
Sigh, I just cleared this game for the 11:th time.
IT’S HERE! Even a week BEFORE the estimated day. Phew, now I can finally relax. I’ll write up a blog update with more info on this later.
The Phoenix Order is Hyrule’s most consistently strong police force and has been for close to a hundred years.
Meet Bearded Paladin Link. A paladin class novice, always at the bottom of his class. His first day of paladin school is one he won’t forget as he finds out that his sister Zelda, notoriously known for being the most fierce paladin in Hyrule, is his new mentor. He can no longer slack of as he used to. But his fear is short lived and replaced with a greater one as his sister gets kidnapped the same day by an organization simply known as “Ganon”.
Confused, scared and fearful for his sisters life, he peruses them. What he doesn’t know is that Zelda has already managed to free herself and he is kidnapped in her stead. Now, “Ganon” uses Link as bait to lure Zelda out.
Meanwhile, after a face to face inspection by “Ganon“‘s leader Aghanim, Link is promptly thrown into a cold, dark dungeon. The old man in the next cell over who calls himself “Nonag” helps him find a way out of the cell. Link is getting the hell out of there, but not before he finds out what Aghanim wants with his sister. What makes her so special?
Zelda arrives just in time to see Link found out by Aghanim. Link panics and falls down an impossibly long cliff into the valley below “Ganon“‘s headquarters. In cold rage, Zelda retreats for backup and starts up a crusade to avenge her fallen brother.
Presumed dead but still alive, Link finds himself washed up in a foreign land believed to once have been inhabited by the gods. He finds a long forgotten sword that he is asked to have delivered to the one who should wield it. But can he make it in time? Ganon, always oppressed by Hyrule for something that happened a hundred years ago, have finally found a way to defeat their sworn enemy. All they need is Zelda, the chosen one.
……..DAMMIT now I want to know what happens next. Wait, did I just write Zelda-fanfiction? I’m so confused right now, I mean….I hardly even like Zelda. I think I spent more time on the pitch than the actual design, haha. Ah well, I am listening to OoT’s soundtrack, I wanted to draw something quick and was sort of inspired by Anna Landins excellent redesigns of Zelda, Link and Ganon. So I’ll blame her :P
I want to design Zelda from the same universe but I’m not really sure when I’ll have the time. Ah well, back to studying Japanese.
(btw, I hate the manga studio 5 tones so far….guess I’m too used to 4)
Man, it sure was a while since I did something that’s unrelated to Silver Vein.
Well, I recently got the soundtrack for the movie “Dancer in the Dark” by Björk. I haven’t actually seen the movie but I love the music. There was no lyrics sheet (RAGE!!!) so I sat down with some paper and just drew what came to mind. I guess you might call it some kind of fanart. For those of you who have Spotify, the music I’m talking about is this: Selmasongs.
This took me about three hours. I’ve been reading Hellboy lately and it shows, I guess. I wanted to make a flats & gradient kind of exercise. My hope is that I’ll be able to make more of them this year. Oh, and this isn’t photoshop. I just got Manga Studio 5 and wanted to play around a bit.
I will be at Stockholm’s International Comics Festival on April 27th-28th!
Entry is completely free of charge, so anyone who happens to be near Kulturhuset on those days between 11.00-18.00 is welcome in!
I’ll be sharing my table with the most excellent Daniel Olsén, Linus Remahl, Alek Kalabakov, Alexander “BG” Berggren and Elias Olsson. We’ll be selling fanzines, posters, prints and possibly (at least on my part) even originals.
If you’re lucky, you might find the one and only Analon at our table - as far as I know, he’s not selling anything, but I promised the boys I’d be bringing dinosaur-shaped muffins, so…
Thanks for uploading this info, Anna. I’ll be there, helping out, even if I don’t have anything to sell. If I am to believe the printing company’s estimated delivery date, however, I’ll have a shiny 244-page book at the table. Visit our table if you can, convention goers :)
Making a comic book is easy right? RIGHT?
So I’m just waiting for my brother to finish looking through it for spelling/grammatical errors. Then it’s good to go. Oh, and the book turned out to be 244 pages excluding the covers. A nifty amount for a first volume :)
Sigh, I need to get some sleep. This week has been exhausting.
