This is the cover to the first issue of the comic we are producing at the studio where I've been interning this past year. At least this is it right now. The comic itsself isn't going to be done for quite some time, so for all I know we might still make changes here and there, or add some things maybe. Not sure though, and we're pretty happy with the result so far, so we might just leave it as is.

Some of you may have heard of the comic, but only because I posted a promotional image for it a while back, right here: [link]

It'll be published in France, probably by Soleil. Not sure yet about overseas publishing, we're still looking into that. I'll be sure to let you guys know though!


Pencils: Thorsten Kiecker
Colors by me.

Software: Photoshop CS.

Hallöchen!
Ich hab mir damals auf dem Erlangener Comic-Saloon dieses Jahr euer Comic gekauft und es auch signieren lassen!
Nach wie vor bin ich wirklich begeistert, dass ihr es geschafft habt, euer eigenes Comic zu vermarkten! Find ich supergenial!

Ich bin wirklich gespannt wie es weiter geht und freue mich auf den 2. Teil ;D

P.S. Du colourierst wirklich sehr gut! Es ist nicht so einfach LineArts schön zu colourieren, aber du machst das echt spitze! Und es zieht sich die Qualität echt durchs ganze Comic! Ganz toll! ;D

Hey Fab, we do have it as a poster now hanging on the wall right beside the digital production department in a size of 80 x 160 cm. Looks great :D When will you be back in Berlin ?

RGB while I'm painting. But before I send it off to print, I convert to CMYK.

:iconfabianmonk:
FabianMonk Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2007  Student Digital Artist
There is a noise filter involved, yeah. Sometimes I use texture overlays, not for the hands in this case though. It's probably a combination of the noise, as well as how I painted them.

what else could I say, looking forward to the comic.

You say it mau only be in France, how about UK, is a Euro thing?
Reply
:iconfabianmonk:
FabianMonk Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2007  Student Digital Artist
Hmmm, not sure. I think only France at first, but I wouldn't bet on it. Which countries it's going to get published in is mainly a thing concerning who owns which rights to the comic at this point I think.
I'm not really immersed in the comic scene in general though, so how often do French comics get translated and published in the UK?

Thanks for the really kind words too!

:iconknowleser:
knowleser Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2007
Some French comic do make it over here, it's just if folk translate it... I guess?

and you welcome for the words man, take it easy and hope to catch up with you in the UK
