Mid-Change by JoeEngland Mid-Change by JoeEngland
Wow... is this the first actual "Zebra Girl"-related image I've put in this gallery?
Man. I'm crazy.
This was a request from Bren MacDonald (alias The Trenchcoat Anti-Critic), an up-and-coming film maker. He's considering various projects right now, most still very early in the development phase, but one of them is a potential adaptation of Zebra Girl. Gadzooks! Really though, it's all very tentative, so don't go nuts just yet. It may be that nothing will come of it, and anyway, it's still a long time before it'll chance getting to that point. Still, he thought it would be nice for the proposal package to have a nice cover illustration.
The idea was to show a more stressful, gradual version of Sandra's initial transformation into Zebra Girl. Which I like. I'm very fond of changing things into other things, you know.

You should cross promote your DA account and Zebra Girl a little more.

Old time Zebra Girl fan here. (And I own the book!)

This is a neat lil' alternate transformation scene. Not sure why, but I love the different layers of smoke depth. Somehow it just works well with the black-and-white contrast of Sandra's skin.

This really makes me wanna see the process. You know what would be cool? To see the color burn out of her skin until it's bleached, then seeing the stripes cut their way across her body in sickening rips. Cold black through blistering white, hence steam.

This is awesome. I've been following Zebra Girl since... oh, since Jack pulled a Gandalf. I still check it every weekend for updates. I must say, I love it! And the art is to die for. Thanks for all your hard work on it.

So, is this canon? Do I have to start revising the Zebra Girl memory banks in my head? Because I'll totally do it!

Canon? Nah. No revisions necessary. Just think of it as a very near alternate universe.

Oh damn! This is pretty awesome.
Yeah, i was a little surprised there wasn't any Zebra Girl stuff in here... i could have sworn i'd seen some on your dA many moons ago, like years, but i must have imagined it.
I love the smoke/steam in this... the twirls and intricacies of it in motion, and the way it's erupting out from under her clothes... cool!

This is gorgeous, just like everything you do. I've been a Zebra Girl fan for... Lessee, now... I think about seven years? Maybe eight? Wait, maybe I've said that already elsewhere.

Anyway. I'm with kvernikovskiy in that it makes my day any and every time you post something.

Good luck with the adaptation!

I think the part I like best is where her skin is layered with the patterns that are becoming her demon marks. Your black and white and grey work with shapes and lines has always been one of my fave things about the comic and your work in general. I actually re-read the whole archive two weeks ago because i found myself getting hazy on plot details. I re-fell in love with the art, the subtle visual ques, and the depth of humor and emotion. If this were to be adapted my only response would be "I'll watch the hell out of that" (^*^)

I am fond of this too. Like changing people into ponies. And then switching things. If I paid you. Would you do up a comic sequence of the first two chapters of My Little Heartbreak?

I keep seeing that one smoke curl by her face as a fist socking her in the jaw.. :o

I love this, she looks like she's burning up and instead of charred flesh it's.. demony bits.

Been following Zebra Girl for ages, so it's cool so see such a nice version of a pivotal scene. Looks like her stripes are in flux, like they're developing into what becomes her final pattern, but aren't quite there yet. Great work!
