Exploring some sword designs and reconstruction sequence as Freddie gets her Sailor Moon on in the background.
Each individual Piece of Trinity is housed within the body of its bearer as pure energy/magic until summoned, where it then forms itself into its designated shape.

Freddie’s weapons (and the rest of the Pieces of Trinity) reconstruct themselves each time they’re summoned for use. I want to work on exploring that idea a little more once I go through a few more designs of the weapons themselves.

Even though I answered the height question before, something about it didn’t seem quite right when I looked back at my lineup, so I adjusted my characters (and their heights) a bit accordingly.

I also paired everyone together by their titles this time around.

Full page comic test.

Click to read the captions that explain what’s going on in each step!

Here’s my progress more or less from beginning to end for the test comic page I did. Not pictured are the fifty-million fonts I tried out before using this one.

Bianca’s engineer goggles are basically khaji da. (They don’t actually speak to her, though)

Hastily made comics because I’m impatient and need practice working on timing. The weapons still aren’t exactly designed yet, so consider these placeholders.

Downtime with the Original 3, because why not? Probably takes place sometime in the middle of their journey.

Colored over my sketches~


I thought it would be fun to make my cast page a sort of portraits gallery for each of the six main characters. For the Original 3, it made sense to draw them in a style reminiscent of traditional portraits, with their frames kinda-sorta reflecting their individual backgrounds.

For the Substitutes, however—selfies/candids galore.

(Bianca’s instagram name is a reference to this song, btw)

Hadn’t drawn anything new for a few days, so I sketched out a quick Freddie for fun.

Very rough sketch of one of the settings in the comic (and Emilio’s possible place of work), Mugshot Cafe, and the place’s owner (and local celebrity), Dave, who’s kind of a blowhard. There’s still a lot more detail—and more accurate perspective—I’d like to get down for the Cafe, but I just wanted to play with one idea for the basic layout right now.

I am pretty jazzed about practicing my lettering.
