Okay so as i've mentioned I'm thinking of putting out a limited edition print copy of Footloose chapter 1-5. That's what we'd call the pre-pirate 'Finding your Feet' arc I suppose covering the shenanigans Sparkle pulls and all the nonsense leading up to An's big reveal. I guess if we did future editions we'd probably do 6-8 as "the road to the emerald city" and 9-12 as "keti goes bananas and tries to kill everyone".
anyhoo for these first few chapters obviously the quality of work isn't as amazing as it could be (no I'm not redrawing anything don't even ask) so i want to do some kickass cover art to make up for it. considering the plot of chapters 1-5 what do you think i should put on the cover?
For some reason I have this mental image of Keti in the center of the page, with Daniel and Jin right behind them (in sort of an action pose). Maybe have Flib and Beansprout as semi-transparent images watching over them.
Keti can look confused, Jin hyper and cheerful, and Daniel sardonic. You know, like usual. =^-^=
tangent, too obvious, I want it to stand out amongst great piles of unknown small press work- standard pose like a team isn't going to cut it... X you seem to have an imagination for cool posters, that could really do it, especially if she had a sort of physically tripping over effect, maybe a shoe bouncing off the back of her head XD
To be clear I had been building off of Tangents idea before and just said that about Keti because he didn't say anything about her except being in the middle. My own thinking stopped at her being pushed onto the scene as it seemed like a suitable metaphor for the beginnings of footloose.
I wasn't sure about the shoe idea, but seeing it bouncing past the comic title was an "Oh duh!" moment for me. That and the horribly ungraceful pose should help stop people from associating it with the Footloose movie.
At first glance Keti looks really angry in this sketch, but I'm guessing that's not the intention for the final version.
Sometimes simple is best. Keti is the star of the comic, after all, so having her on the cover (half-tripping) works. Though I still think the shoe that bonked her should make the "S" of Footloose. =^-^=
Love Keti's outfit. Not sure about her mouth's expression... it looks almost like she's angry. And I'm puzzled if people will be able to figure out the S is a shoe... perhaps have it be shaded as a shoe (a different color than the rest of the font)?
Heyup! anyone want to be put on volunteer proofreading duty? don't want to give ally too much to do as she's already busy and already asked her to transcribe an infodump and write a preface, and my spelling is shoddy as we know.
