Mel is my one handed comic heroine. Echoes of Distant Stars. Starting to compile images for a collage comic; I’ll just post sneak peaks as I go. Once I have the basic story done, I’ll collage the pieces into photoshop.
Image 1: Mel’s Portrait. Graphite and colored pencil on wood. I asked my fiance to write some code to incorporate into an art piece. The above is what he wrote with a smirk and said every coder started with that sort of thing. I thought Hello World seemed appropriate for meeting Melonia. So that’s what the text says.
I like the name Mel. I have a childhood friend named Melody. That was the initial name, but I decided to change it to a more foreign name to embrace the surreal aspect of the comic.
Image 2: Mel meets the clover Fennec. Pencil and digital. Fox with clover on head.
