Nixed graphic novel project - introductory pages by Pika-la-Cynique Nixed graphic novel project - introductory pages by Pika-la-Cynique
Storyboarded / digitally inked / coloured (colours a collaboration).

More clues if anyone was trying to guess who this is. My opening sequence (collab with scriptwriter).

My teen survivor character, in a introductory musing sequence, before things all go to hell.
It was gonna be a 4-volume series connecting 4 protagonists, based on a popular French YA novels series. Alas, our vision for the project did not meet with the writers' approval, after I and colleagues had sunk a few months into this in 2017....

I gather it is going ahead with another creative team - good luck to them, it's pretty heavy logistics.

The scribbled-over speech bubbles look really cool.
It looks... muffled, maybe? Half-remembered, or some kinda dreamlike noise that only sounds a bit like words.

I was kinda censoring for not-my-own text and so as not to reveal the project's specifics, but I agree it is a rather fortuitious effect.

Quelle déception! ... as well as frustrating--considering your time and effort.  Alas, it looks very good to me but les goûts et les couleurs ne se discutent pas.  I hope at least you enjoyed and had fun working with your team.  Next time for sure!

I'm sorry that the writer's didn't like your take on it. Especially after spending so much prep time with it; that's never easy and beyond frustrating.
