Black and White

Black and White is a comic book that I'm collaborating on with one of my best friends from high school. He's a TV, Radio, and Film major with a creative writing minor at UW-O. Anyway, he wrote this movie script that we are now turning into a comic book. The short synopsis for the story goes as follows:

A horde of creatures have escaped from Heaven and Hell. God and The Devil, female roommates, recruit two mortals, a cop and a criminal, to retrieve and/or execute these creatures and bring them back to where they belong.

There's more to it, but that'll to for now. Below are some sketches of each character. One thing that I found very frustrating was trying to draw a convincing face/head without the use of a reference. Pounding though tons of drawings of skulls and very basic planer heads has helped immensely. Another cause of much frustration has been trying to draw a character consistently with different expressions and angles. It's been challenging, but I feel that with every page I fill with sketches, they get better.

The Devil




Up next is roughing out some storyboards and basic layouts for the comic. The script is 60 pages long, so its going to be a chore to organize the whole thing into thumbnails and what not.
