Would you guys be interested in my comic idea?

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 5, 2013, 10:52 PM

1.What is 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' about?

Ans: It's about a strange little town called Sleepy Hollow that is afflicted by a deadly curse and it follows the adventures of Ichabod Crane,a seemingly ordinary young man who might be the very savior of this town!

2.Is it based on the book?

Ans: Yes ! But I must warn you,and stress it.VAGUELY! It has witches,demonslaying,witch hunters,ghosts,a deadly curse.A damsel , distress and a savior who will save them all!  

3.What style will it be in?

Ans:Sleepy hollow cover coloured version by BubbleDriver

Sleepy hollow cover BW by BubbleDriver
Voyage and Journey by BubbleDriver

Sh Pg1 by BubbleDriver

4.Why are you doing this?
Ans: As a deviation from  my usual image of cute and colourful , I want to venture and try out a new art style.My inspiration for Sleepy Hollow will be heavily borrowed from Mike Mignola's Hellboy  ! :D I also want to portray and offer a deviation from the norm for female characters! This story will be female centric and will allow me a good excercise in storyboarding as well as storytelling! :D I want to show women are people, that they too can be heroes and also be flawed ! I want a story with a strong,empowered female villian who can be utterly ruthless in acheiving her goal! I want to show the greyness in morality of characters! Also my brother who is ten wants me to create a comic.He also believes that women are supposed to be damsel's in distress.I want to create a comic that can change his perception and yet sate his request! Also, I want to play on the   The seven basic plots are: overcoming the monster; rags to riches; the quest; voyage and return; comedy; tragedy; rebirth by Christopher Booker!

The Proposal

Comics are another form of storyboarding and are a good oppotunity for me to excercise my ability to show how the story is played out and how different shots have a meaning!They are also a fantastic chance for me to showcase my storytelling skills with no cut downs on designs or fashion that will factor in if animated.Time also will not be compromised and I can also show the character's progression as well as development than a short film that will also stress me out, personally as character animation is not , admittedly a strong suit of mine.Not to mention, personally Comics are a great way for me to practice script writing as well as allow me to have another avenue to animation.I also will have a chance to show plot twists , as well as practice a different style.So as to speak then the norm I tend to follow!Plus, I have a huge interest in the supernatural! Western spooks,european supernatural.It's all dandy to me! :B And it would delight me to no end to be able to trek in the footsteps of one of my idols and actually have a completed strip!

I'm expecting great things from you, Bubbledriver.

What i love about all of this, is that is palpable the gigantic effort you are putting on every frame, even every detail!

Believe it or not, even if i don't say much i'm always checking out your stuff, so vivid (:

SKREEEEE~ I would TOTS read it! This looks pretty awesome, and the style is just AMAZING! So is the coloring!! This would make a great comic book if you ask me, Skreeeeeeee~ This needs to be a REALITYYYYY~
Branasaur Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Whoa! OuO
I love it. First of all, I love the style, I always love your style. But this would look so fitting for a comic, while also being original. To me it looks, cartoony, comic book-ish, and also reminds of the illustrations from childrens' books. 
It looks dark, but not to dark, like there's a brightness about it. I think this comic would be so likable for everyone. 
And you put it together so well. ;u; Not to be rude, but when other people people try to make comics and post them online, they looks so amateur-ish.
Your's doesn't look like that at all though!

Mj-00 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
This looks amazing! And it looks convincing to be a actual Comic Book.
I'll probably sound silly when I say this, but; I really love the coloring xD It looks so natural!
I wish you good luck bubbledriver! n v n//

OuO Cool idea!! Totally support this! > u <
TheEvilFishImp Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hell to the yes!! This is a splendid idea. :D
Sleepy hollow was one of my favorite fables for the longest time, and I think your twist is so far, a very intersting concept. And I really love the style you choose for it, tis very beautiful and the gothic /more so - details adds that needed elegance and macabre effect for the story you wish to tell. And even bigger props for keeping your style recognizable in the change! I've seen other artist, /myself included/ change the whole style of their art because they can't merge their original style with the new element. ^^;
Best of lucks to ya!! Hopefully I can officially end my hiatus and reply to every thing else as well >\\<

That sounds absolutely amazing, and I'll support you all the way!! :D:D:D:D
Ahn-Oh Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
An interesting revamped story with your own brand of style. I like the featured artwork on this piece, following all its 19th century theme which makes it eerie and dark. And of course I dig the background art on this one, very colorful and stylish in a way to counterpart its gloomy theme. Can't wait to see this comic come to life and how its concept will flow with your readers.

Interesting,I'll let my friends know.
st0rmk4t Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This seems like it would be really awesome... I love the style you have chosen. Plus, I have already seen some of your capabilities with all of your different concept art, so this should be a great project for you! Good luck!!

Go for it! I've always liked the story of Sleepy Hollow, and I'm probably one of the biggest fans of Johnny Depp's role in the movie by the same name. This comic looks to me like it'd be a great project to undertake!
Fairydeath23 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It sounds like a great idea, well thought out. The goal is a great way to start out on a project. You have my support for sure c:

SirPansol Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This seems really goood, I really like the art style and the way everything so far is presentrd. I think a story with the woman not as a damsel is really something .

Everything seems really nice, I would totally buy it. 

I very much support this.
Crudaka Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

MikeHarvey Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013
Wow! I wasn't expecting this. A change of style to something darker, more dynamic characters to play with, and a larger story to wrap it all up in. I'm extremely curious to see what you do with this comic and I can't wait to read more. Best of luck to you.
Skull-gum Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Hmm, very interesting.
leafyloo Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It sounds like a very interesting comic series. :) I even love the art style you're doing it in. I say go for it!!!! :D I hope it goes well!
magusVroth Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013  Professional Artist
Heheh. Well, very interesting to see you take on a project like this. I'd definitely be willing to back this thing up. Also, I think it would be awesome to see you expand on your work a bit, and to see your style really flow when integrated with a story like this.

I have to say, based on what I've seen so far, it certainly seems like your style really flourishes, and it really works for this kind of project. I do hope that more people help to back this up. I hope that you will let me know if there are other ways that I can support this and make it a reality; otherwise, I hope that the contribution of my approval will be a good step for you, my friend. :)
imagni Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013
I'd buy this in a heartbeat! :) You have my full support! The story is an interesting one so I'd love to see your take on it, especially with your art style. It's so quirky and original. You always put a lot of heart and passion into everything you write, I can seriously feel the warmth from your writing - so i would ADORE to read a full comic by you. The artwork you've shown already has so much promise to it, please please continue \^_^/ I could also help promote the comic on my website too if you'd like.

Now make this comic happen!!
BubbleDriver Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you so very much! If all goes well this coming monday, I'm keeping my fingers crossed,I hope to show my supervisor the number of people supporting my idea and he's interested,but I sincerely hope he'd give me a definite answer if he sees how many people are interested in it! It means a lot to me that you find my ideas original! It personally means the world to me that you think my artwork and stories have warmth.Thank you! I will do my absolute best! I wanted to do OOTW but it covers the span of two whole volumes and frankly, given the half the year time frame my passion for it would be strained .

Would you? That would be super duper awesome! It would be a great help! I understand you are very busy so please if you have the time , it would be fantastic!  0v0 Erm.., just a minor heads up, I hope you will not mind but I will be placing all the names who have backed this project in this journal ((If it gets selected, my lecturer is a tough cookie)) in the acknowledgements page! I'll note you and everyone if it is a yay or a nay.Once again, thank you so much! 0v0

You have my support! ;) I can't wait to see what kind of ideas you have, and so far, the art style looks fantastic!
Ren-chin Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I think this would be a great opportunity to show of how detailed you get into your work. From what I can see from just the pictures the story looks like it will have depth and a lot of interesting characters. BUT MOST OF ALL THESE COLORS ARE GORGEOUS!!! So yeah like I said I'm all for it xD
Ren-chin Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Of course I support this! 
ArieneVega Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would totally read this, and buy it (if I had the money at the time) if it was printed
Gabberforth Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think it's a great idea, and it'll look really cool with the style you're using 8> Good luck!
