Dragon Quest: Dragon Protection League Comic
Over the summer I had the opportunity to do a booklet for Dragon Quest: An Outdoor Theatrical Event that is taking place in Dundee’s Monikie Park until November 1 2015. After I was given a rough draft of the manuscript I decided to turn it into a comic. I’m not very comfortable painting within the confines of line art so this test is a venture out of my comfort zone.
I think it was a good decision in the end as I had more fun than I expected. Especially when it came to picking colours. I hope I will have more opportunities to do more work in this style. It’s different from what I’m used to but I really like how it turned out.
I spent some time developing the look of the dragons and the look of the main character Kuuan, a female troll who is a formidable dragon hunter as well. She evolved from a fairy/mermaid character to a bearded viking and then to a steampunk hunter troll. I also illustrated a simple wanted poster of Kuuan for Dragon Quest.
