View Full Version : Starfallen - Project development

02-19-2017, 08:05 PM
Hello folks!

Been awhile and thought I'd house a thread on my project. I currently attend SCAD Atlanta and am studying Sequential Art for a MFA. Had a class on narrative structure and we had to start a story for said class. Well, this happened and that happened and now I have a project I'm very excited for and hope to have a handful of pages by summer. However, since it's still in working stage I'd kinda like to get feedback early on.

So, thank you for taking a peek!

Not sure if I'll be pitching it anywhere, but at the very least I'll make it a webcomic. We'll see..

- Page design and look

- Script Outline [Current status = 24 pages outlined]
- Chapter 1 thumbnails [current status = 7 pages ]
- Roughs
- Finals
- Cover

Fun stuff
- reference folder

to keep things organized each post below will be split in to sections for the above checklist.

I love this, man. The character art is wonderful. I like the story premise.

I think the STARFALLEN logo could be a lot better. I know you are in the early stages of development, so maybe come up with a few more designs with the logo?

Thanks man! I appreciate the kind words and feedback.
I'll see what I can do about the logo! I know I'm not 100% on it so I'll draw up some designs.

Great, stylized character art. And the logo isn't terrible in my humble opinion, we'll see what variations you come up with..
