Despite being so full of university work and deadlines early January, I am intending on starting a (hopefully) small project based on a story idea I had in a dream. I barely remember any of my dreams to actually remembering this and liking it so much to dig more into the idea is usual for me!
I am hoping to create a comic book about a late teen – young adult girl called Aiode who lives on an island that needs an annual music show/or festival of sorts to appease to an entity that had been known to keep the island alive and afloat, she is chosen to either become the new entity or has been conned and her should will be consumed. When it comes to this, I would rather have the whole story idea be done as I am unsure with what I want to happen after a certain part and some details that go with the story.
Though I want this to be a comic, I also want to have part of it as a novel as well… The intended idea was to have most of the Aiode’s soul parts as a comic, and anything to do with reality as a novel as such… of course being an artist and illustrator I want to get the drawing done first as it is something I love to do, which means development of the characters and possible creatures in the story, even if they are in the writing to have development for them.
I do not intend on giving myself a deadline for this as I would like to give myself time to properly think about where I want this project to go and if I should create a physical book or have it as something that should just stay online. Also, because university work is piling up and I am intending to dive more into it once my deadlines are over.
I intend to post development and overall ideas on my instagram (@brillustrationss), to show what I can do when it comes to artwork… a possible starting date of this idea will be late January by putting together visual research and mood boarding my ideas.
Sorry it has been so long since I posted
See you guys later!
