PHALANGA in DOGGYBAGS 10 edited by LABEL 619 published by ANKAMA
My friend Mojo and I wrote and drew a 38 colored page revenge story. I had the main character in my head for a long time, but really begin to work on the story in 2014, when Mojo asks me to pitch the project to the label 619. We wrote the story, Mojo worked on the backgrounds, me on the characters, and we fixed the colors together. And thanks to Run, our dialogs does not sucks.
2 years later, Phalanga is alive.
I really tried to put the best/worst of me in this character. /
Phalanga is going deep in the darkness of NYC to find his parents murderer.
He's broken, consider himself as already dead, an think that revenge will bring him back to life.
Here's some chunks of the work we've put on to make this weird story come to life.
Some chara design, looking for the graphic style of the comic. First test were really much more cartoony.
Some background sketches by Mojo.
Here's a step by step from story board to final render of page 02. With some ambiant color test. French text inside.
With the comic comes a huge poster, here's a small step by step of it. Final version available in the book !
PHALANGA is one of the 3 crazy stories you can find in this Doggybags n°10.
Thanks again to Run, Yuck, and the Label 619.
