Robin Hood- Cover by AbsoluteDream Robin Hood- Cover by AbsoluteDream
Page 1: [link]

--------------
Now that I've finally got some stuff off of my list of stuff to do, I can concentrate on this project. XD Some time ago I did a "Story to Comic" contest, in which I've decided to draw a comic based on *ShadowandMary's story, Robin Hood. (If you would like to read the story ahead of time, here it is here: [link] )

I realized that I've posted absolutely nothing of this! I've been doing a bunch of concept drawings and everything, but.... they sort of suck. I will finish some of my drawings though.

This really helps me get an idea of how to organize a comic, and I'm having a lot of fun deciding on which techniques to use. But I have to apologize for how long it's taking. ^^; I've finished about six pages at the moment, and I'm working on another ten. I just want to create a 'buffer' before I start posting pages. I'll be posting two pages at a time.

One thing you will probably notice is that the pages will look different over time in some way. I'm still experimenting with techniques and trying to find the easiest one for me.

Also I've decided to split this story into three or four chapters. The first chapter will be in colour, the others will be in black and white or something like that. It would make it easier for me to keep the pages going. ^^;

I hope the cover looks alright. I had sketches for a super detailed cover, but I soon decided that since this is based on a story book theme, I figured a more simple cover would fit better.

I hope you guys like it!

Aw, thanks! 8D

You're too kind. I appreciate the comment! :D I feel I can do better now though. Oh well. It's actually been quite a while since I've drawn Sonic. I should maybe come up with some sketches. XD

Thank you so much again! 8D

The old book style cover looks great and works well for the story. Sonic in a circle is classic, he looks good in that hat, it matches his eyes.

Heh, nope. I know next to nothing about the comics. ^^; But that's interesting, I didn't know there was actually a character similar to Robin Hood. :XD:

Zomg~ I'm sooo excited to see the first few pages!
I love the simple, old-time layout. It definitely looks like one of those "classic" story covers. The slight, sepia-tone shading creates an awesome effect. Don't worry about how long it's taking, though. I know exactly how you feel. (The Last Piece is having a rocky start as well. It's hard to get a big project moving.) As excited as I am, I'm still understanding. I bet everyone is. Take as much time as you need. Besides, the more time you take the better the outcome. You have so much artistic talent that no matter what you do, it'll look great. I am curious about the concept drawings, though. I don't care if they "sort of suck", they're probably better than anything I can draw. POST THEM, EVEN IF THEY'RE UNFINISHED.

I can't wait to see how you handle the storyline since there are a lot of challenges in it. (Mary never writes anything simple. Lol.) Recently the emotion and personality you bring out in your art has been amazing, so I'm totally thrilled for the character interaction. I just can't wait for the comic in general. Best Writer I Know + Best Artist I Know = ULTIMATE COMIC!!!!! 8DDD

SDJLKFSDJLDFKL~~~!!!! I seriously cannot contain myself!
((Sorry for all the late comments, by the way. I'm been super busy with school and church.))

Dawww, thank you! :la:

Yes, thank you for understanding! I feel really bad it's taking so long. I just want to start posting the pages as soon as possible. But as you say, the longer you work on it, the better it will be, and that's what I'm trying to do. ^^; I might even fix the pages that I've already finished since.... I'm not TOO happy with them quite yet. XD
Pfff, you're so kind! 8'D I really do hope it comes out alright. ^^;
Haha, you really think so? XD I probably will!

Yes, it's a fun challenge so far! The first chapter stays very close to the story. The others might have some small changes to make it work as a comic a little more.
Wow, thank you so much!! I'm excited to see how it comes out as well! :D

Oh no, that's fine! I've been slow as well. XD

No problem~ <3

Oh pfft. Although the longer you take the better the outcome will be, don't over-think everything. If you have pages that are finished just leave them~! I bet they look fine. Besides, an artist is his or her own worst critic. People won't be too picky, especially because you're doing a comic. They take a TON of dedication and time... and people understand that!

Daww~ Don't worry about it!
AND YES I REALLY THINK SO. xD

That's understandable. It's hard converting written work to visual work. x3
SERIOUSLY~ Mary and I have been talking about it for weeks. Haha.

Okay! Thanks for understanding.

Haha, I don't think they look that great. D: There's something that's really bothering me about them. I don't know if it's just the style of colouring I'm using or... maybe I'm not putting in enough effort, I don't know. ^^; But you're right, I don't want to over think it. Thank you so much for the encouragement! :hug: I'll just keep going on the other pages.

:tighthug:

It's a fun challenge for sure. :D
Aww, really? 8D

No problem. ^^

No problem~ <3 I have your same problem. I look at my art and I'm all like IT'S SO UGLY and I never post it. That's also why it takes me forever to draw in the first place. I'm constantly fixing and rearranging things.

YES, REALLY. We're both super excited!

Yeah. D: But I think a good excersize to try is to not think too much about what you're drawing, and just let your creativity take over. XD I actually have a ton of scribbled art from when I just went crazy with drawing. I might post some of what I came up with. XD

D'aww. X3

GASP!! SONIC!!! <3 XDD I love the cover, Dream! I'm definitely excited to see the comic~! xD I can't wait! :D

Sounds like to me that drawing all of those pages to this comic will be kind of challenging. You would have to concentrate and stay patient as much as you could to draw every single scene. And that's sometimes hard to do. ^^" That's a lot of hard work too... But I know that you can pull it off. You have such an amazing artistic gift~! :) Take your time, Dream. I wish you luck with the comic~ But I just know that it's gonna be a very well drawn and epic comic, and I'll definitely enjoy reading it~ ^__^

Sonic looks so cool and awesome with that hat and the bow~!! xD I just LOVE how you drew him, too! :D <333

Yes, it will be a challenge. XD Especially since I haven't drawn any comic before. But I'm happy I can experiment with this one. ^^
Aww, thank you so much! 8'D I really do hope it turns out alright. ^^;

Haha, I feel that the hat looks good on Sonic for some reason. XD Thank you again! :hug:

XD I think the hat looks good on Sonic, too. He looks more handsome with it on I think. ^^
Anytime~! *hugs you back* <3
