So you know I’ve finished the latest novel, and I am determined to take a break before starting the new one. But I’m boooorrrrreed. So I’ve found myself scribbling a few ideas down for a Moorehawke webcomic based on the story of Christopher’s … um … necklace (trying to avoid spoilers for those who haven’t yet read The Rebel Prince.) It’s a story I wanted make a proper space for, as I felt it was too complex and important to hijack The Rebel Prince with. Also, I always had a hankering to tell it though the medium of a graphic novel! I figure I might as well play about with it now. This may never come to anything more than a few fun sketches, and sheets of concept art. but I’m enjoying playing with it at the moment.
Here’s a concept page I did this morning – Christopher remembers his mother, and what a demented little wolf-boy he was. (BTW I got Christopher’s Mam’s Finnish from terrible online translation site. If anyone can tell me how to actually say ‘No Christopher! Not the chicken!’ in Finnish, I’d be ever so grateful.)
