ALTERNATIVELY, head over to the Blog, where an additional 5 preview pages are posted as well: [link]

So yeah, Ria Vol 2 is done. We finished shortly before the end of 2011, and it will make it's French debut at the comic festival of Angouleme, next weekend.
I realize the pages posted in this preview and on the blog are in english, but I'm afraid Ria is still not published in that language. As far as I know, that is still being worked on. So far it's published in France by Editions Paquet, the Netherlands by Silvester Strips and in Germany by Splitter.

In case any of you make it to Angouleme, be sure to drop by the Paquet booth. Sten (creator of the project) will be there, as will I. Although I won't be behind the booth as frequently. Last year we never got around to checking out ANYTHING other than the back of our booth, so I'll be making up for that this time around.

Storyboards and major development: Thorsten Kiecker (Sten) :iconkiecker:
Final character line art: Christian Retzlaff and Kaja Reiniki
Backgrounds and character colors: me.

Software used: Photoshop.

Oh woaw :O
I just recently bought the first part and I love it, can't wait till the second part is released over here (the netherlands)
Can it be that the drawing-style kindof reminds me of w.i.t.c.h. ?
It looks a bit similiar..
But love it so far, will surely buy the next book when it's out ^_^

Hey, sorry for the super late reply.
Witch is drawn by Barbucci right? If so, then there's definitely an influence there. Thorsten (who drew Ria) and Barbucci are both from the Disney school of drawing (to an extent), so that makes sense.

Thanks for the kind words!
Backgrounds <3<3<3<3<3 And this light :O Speechless
