Over the next few weeks, I will post a fragment of my upcoming graphic novel/comic book panel by panel. Actually, it’s not part of my book or maybe it will, I haven’t decided yet but it’s got something to do with the background stroy.
Just like what J.K. Rowling did when planning her infamous books. If I lost you, you can listen to show #5 of my podcast; Harry Potter and the Character Profiles.
Anyhoo, I made a 12-panel… um… “vingette” I guess it’s called as I have a Moleskine sketchbook for watercolours that I hardly use. My watercolouring skills are terrible and I thought I’d have some fun in trying to figure them out by making a short story. A Moleskine novella if you will. Hm.. I like the sound of that.
Above is the 1st panel. There is no dialogue and I thought it would be fun if you can piece together what is going on.
I’ll call this series “Medieval Spud” as it takes place during the Medieval Era. So really, it’s an ancestor of Spud’s you’ll see in the series.
Let me know what you think– especially if you can offer tips on watercolours :)
