Luna and Pals by trivialtales Luna and Pals by trivialtales

Here's a painting I've been doing on and off for a while now. I finally feel like it's finished. It's acrylics, ink, and a sparse final layer of watercolor and colored pencil on a 17 x 20 illustration board.

This is all of the characters who matter in the comic right now. There will be more, but these are the main ones right now. Some have only been in one or two comics so far.

I'm thinking of using this as a front page on my site, or an eventual book cover. What do you think?

The colours are vibrant and still kind of macabre! I love it.

This would make a pretty sweet cover. For some reason I am particularly drawn to the smoke coming off of dad's cigarette in the corner. Also, the expression on Luna's face in this painting is especially manic. I mean scary manic. Which is EXACTLY what I think she's probably like.

Yeah, I don't envision Luna as the type of person who is really safe to be around. Her passion for life can overpower and shorten other, weaker passions for life.

Thank you. I'm thinking of trying the whole self-publishing thing after I get a little bit past 100 pages. Mostly for the life experience junk.

If you want to print in color, I'd seriously think about doing something shorter than 100 pages, because printing 100 is going to be a little pricey, which leads me to believe more people will just simply go, "He wants HOW MUCH for his book?" Until you've reached celebrity status, it's best to avoid giving folks sticker shock, I think.

Yeah, I just checked it out on Lulu. Even at 80 pages its way expensive. That's not good, because I feel like the color in my comics is a necessity.
