Frostlick Character Concept
These are some concept sketches of the main character of a short graphic novel I've been flirting with over the last couple of months. Basically it's a planetary romance/sword and sorcery tale with an uber-sexy female lead who crash lands on a strange and brutal world.
This one is still in the very early concept stage. I did about 10 thumbnailed pages of layouts and I have 4 or 5 different versions of the story roughed out so who knows which direction this will take in the end.
I think it's both exciting and enraging how stories are birthed by a process of inspiration pumping you up like a cheap hooker then focus and realism beating you down like a bad stepchild. In the end you either make a comic or you have a folder stuffed with neat sketches and half-baked pages.
