New year new comic!

After struggling with the script for the myth of Mercedita, and after a number of revisions of thumbnails, I finally summed up courage to draft the comic pages. Here’s my Mercedita comic in it’s full rawness and loose form. First day of 2014 will be inking these babies! YAY Start the year right with comics.

Also here’s an image of the unfinished script that helped me arrange my thoughts and ideas about the story.

Niña

Niña is the main character in a one shot comics that I have been slowly conceptualising which is called “Mercedita”. Yesterday I finished my thumbnails for the 10 page comics which turned out to be a bit more tricky than I expected. Here is the art style that I’m  planning to use for my comic. What do you think? It’s a mix of style from Takehiko Inoue’s Vagabond and Taga-ilog’s Pasig as well as Tabi-po by Melvin Malonso.  I’m so hyped to finish this before the holiday ends!
