Nina – Graphic Novel

•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, Azryael, Janus

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.

New music!!!

It’s relatively peaceful for this cranky albino shape-shifter, who doesn’t appear until the 7th novel or chapter 3 in the “Nina” comic. It’s going to be a while before actually get to him, but it’ll get there… eventually.

Totally not a foreboding piece 🙂

What a cute version of her. Her skin just needs to be a tad darker, but I’m happy with this.

Finally got all the character shapes filled in. Just down to the final details. I’m really happy how this page turned out.

The the shadows on Krisyana’s face were a little concerning at first; however, good ol’ Liquify tool in Photoshop saves the day for that. Adding filters to bring out more color is super convenient. When I started painting her, the colors were getting rather muddy. Now she looks more attractive.

The mysterious Keeper emerges!

Azryael will debut in the seventh novel of the Wisdom Novels® series before continuing into the comic. He’s rumored to be the fourth Elemental Master that has yet to be reborn. When Wisdom first encounters him, he is nearly mad with a craving that can never be satisfied from a fruit that no longer exists. He’s angry with everything, especially his own kind.
