I just recently beat the first Adventures of Lolo game and it got me thinking about Professor Layton. What if Lolo and Layton could team up in a new game, where Lolo is the hard boiled detective who’s seen it all and Professor Layton is a bit more refined. They are so different, but only by working together can they solve the crime and save the princess.
Here’s a promotional poster I did for my new webcomic, Percy & Grimm. It’s a humorous fantasy comic revolving around two friends who can’t seem to do anything right. I’ll be updating it a page a week, on Mondays, at www.mischiefcomics.com .
Above is a sneak peak at the chapter intro to our heroes’ very first quest: The Gumdrop King! What are they looking at? Is it a bright green caterpillar? Is it some kind of weird hamburger? Is it indeed Grimace, from famed McDonald’s commercials? And why is Grimm drooling? And, for that matter, what is Percy holding in his hand? It appears to be some kind of wooden wood. All these questions and more will be answered once Percy & Grimm, the webcomic is launched October 24, 2010!
WHA HAH HAH!
I haven’t been posting for quite sometime now, that’s because I have been working on a secret project which I unvelied to the comics community at MICE (Massachusettes Independent Comics Expo) this past weekend. Here’s a four panel strip of the main characters:
Percy and Grimm will be an on going series on my new website, www.mischiefcomics.com . However, it’s application is harder to use than blogger, so I won’t be posting until October 24, 2010, hopefully I’ll be used to the program by then.
Percy and Grimm is a hilarious comedy set in a fantasy world. Percy and Grimm travel from town to town looking for quests to make money and gain experience. Percy, the tall one with hair, is training to become a warrior. He is 35-years-old, and is still carrying around a wooden sword because that is where his skill set is at the moment.
Grimm, the portly fellow with a bandana, stives to become the world’s greatest theif. He has little dexterity due to his stubby fingers, but that doesn’t stop him. Also, eating is Grimm’s favorite thing to do. Ever.
Percy and Grimm will be told in small, self-contained chapters. Each chapter builds off the previous one, but they can stand alone as well. Chapters probably won’t be more than 32 pages. I plan on updating a page a week. And this comic will be kid friendly. Hope to see you on their first quest, I’ll send out e-mails when www.mischiefcomics.com is ready to roll.
I used a brush and technical pen for this comic. It’s something I’ve been playing around with. I might switch to that full time, but the first chapter of Percy and Grimm, The Gumdrop King, is done entirely in techinical pens. I’m trying to settle into the right style for this series. But instead of taking months on deciding I jumped right in and hope to feel out the right style as my chapters progress.
