Nina – New Comic!!!

•January 21, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Nina is a cell-shaded style comic. It depicts a scene that could possibly take place after the main novel series.

Characters thus far: Nina, Wisdom, Kendra, Krisyana, Azrayel

Reports of people changing into Dark Ones have drawn a trio of friends to the land of Astra, a land where people do not believe in the existence of magic. Escorted by Ambassador Wisdom, a Land Healer and shape-shifter from No’va, Nina is excited to explore a new location with his Ember Mage friend Kendra.

Immediately upon their arrival she senses others like Wisdom, and is greeted by their exotic and secretive guide, Krisyana. It seems strange to learn that the Council of Elemental Healers and others have made their central meeting in a land where people do not associate with magic. They are warned of changings in the area that have already been dealt with – and an unexpected visitor who is taken into custody due to a planned ambush on the Ambassador.

Nina’s pale features are comparable to the looks of Dark Ones, and it would seem the Council has its hands full with other matters than let a teenage girl enter their meeting. With secrets in every corner, their task of locating an actual Dark One may prove more challenging than expected.

Originally, the ship model built in Blender was missing the crows nest. So after adding this location, I incorporated it in the comic so see how it looked. It’s best with no textures attached, that way it still adheres to the cartoon feel. Nice little cheat!

A revisit to the docks. Looks like a video game.

A 3D model repainted in Photoshop. He looks pretty darn good.

Magic! These programs work so well with one another. I love being able to take the 3D model recently created in Blender 2.8 and “dock” it up with some color and extra features. All it’s missing is some buildings and we have the dock scene from the comic.

I think the boardwalk and peer feels too small. Need to extend it a bit more. Otherwise, this will be nice to use as a reference in the comic when they leave the ship.

Now all I need to do is the actual ship. And maybe some buildings so I can just place it along the coast.

Created some 3D models for perspective purposes and also just to save some time redrawing the town scene in some of the upcoming panels.
