Soleil's Luuna

Heya, peeps and peepettes. :)

Here's a sneakpeek of a page for a shortstory in, called Luuna, I'm working on for Soleil. I'm having a tons of fun with the pages. They were a struggle at first. The mindset you gotta get into is one of the hardest challenges. At first I was intimidated with each page, but now, I have been excited to start on each new page.

For the shortystory I was given the opportunity to redesign the characters as how I'd envision them.

I'll keep you all posted when the book hits the stands.

For those unfamiliar with Soleil, they are a well-known European based publishing company. They've published many many many beautiful books. To name a few: Belladone, Skydoll, Ash, K, Monster Allergy, Daffodil, and Haazard.

Thank you to Andy Kuhn, and Jonboy Meyers for mentoring me through the pages.

Hope y'all digs!

Working for Soleil ?! Welcome to one of the French side of comics! It is a nice company ( I have several friends working there! ). So, tell us, what was the struggle? Do you mean it is because of the French way of layouting a page? Anyway, it looks gorgeous.

a french character with US Comics style: just amazing!

I'll be sure to look into this Soleil company.

Your work is outstanding. Any artist can just look at the stuff you do and be in awe. Honestly, your work inspires me to get better.

I love the work I see from Europe, Rory. I can't get enough of it! HAHAHA It's very intimidating, so I have to step it up, so I don't make a fool of myself. :P

Thank you, Tara. I'm so happy you picked up on them being wolves. HAHA I didn't draw them well, so some people think they're dogs. :P

Thank you, Black Samurai! Marvel/Soliel is putting the book out, so your wish may come true. :)

Thank you, Ledidole! The struggle was to make the panels as exciting, and interesting as I can.

You made me blush, Pascal! Thank you!

Thank you for the kind words, Kenesu! You're too kind.

Thank you, Daniel!

I'm only human, Dustin, and I don't mind knowing sharing my weaknesses. I think that's a good way to be open for growth. And thank you for the very nice comment, bud.

Heya, Pierre! man, it is so challenging. so many panels per page! HAHAHA I cry myself to sleep sometimes. haha I admire and LOVE what you bring to each and every drawing/page. Your style, captivates me because it's so full wonderment, and reminds me to be young in the heart.
Thank you for so much for enjoying the page!

Thank you, Marga! I hope you'll enjoy it when the book comes out. :)

Thank you, Doug!
