Ainsi Ce Qui i by CrimsonMagpie Ainsi Ce Qui i by CrimsonMagpie
Okies, so this is part of my second term's fairy-tale project. This time we had to form into groups of 16 and make a collaborative book, which will be sent to a printers to be perfect bound.

Obviously we had much less space than before; either two or four pages. Most people decided to simply do a summation of their story, but me being the over-ambitious git that I am decided to condense my entire story into comic-book form, with open-format panels. I'd been very into Jim Burns at the time too, so I decided to do all four pages as very detailed paintings.

This was a stupid decision to make, but it helped me learn when to curb my inspirations for the sake of practicality. :P

In this page;
The mooncalf and her little brother live in a shanty on the edge of a big city. Because they're not allowed to earn money under human law she has to scavenge from bins in the suburbs so they don't starve.
The people in the neighborhood don't like this and case her away, and throw stuff at her and whatnot. . .
One evening she gets caught off guard by a woman taking out the trash late. . .

The title means "so what" in French.

Love how the story started. Too bad about what will eventually happen to the poor mooncalf girl. No one deserves that. Us humans are a cruel, sadistic, pointless lot. I think you've portrayed that really well in this series of sequential art.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it, and that the point came across clearly! :la: I cannot claim credit for the story though; that goes to an anonymous Japanese fellow. =p

The thumb looked so vivid I thought it was a picture. But then, that'd be quite an out of the ordinary picture.

I must say I'm not too fond of the creatures as such, but of course, they are painted really nice(ly?). Surprisingly or not, I probably like how you did the roofs in the first picture best, ha.

they are such strange creatures!
i tend to do that a lot too, though one thing i have noticed is that usually my first idea is my best, and there is little reason to fiddle with it... even though i do otherwise. :/

Yeah, I usually work that way, but the college love to see progression of ideas and tons of sketches. . . :iconparanoiddanceplz:
