work in progress from my scary supernatural mystery “Mother.”
took a dozen pages of atmospheric exposition just to finally get her into the damn spooky house. now things should start to get interesting…
I’m so into this project! <3 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) <3
(A) James Brown with Werewolf By Night #23, 1974.
(B) Kurt Cobain with Giant-Size Werewolf #4, 1975.
the page I posted yesterday with some grey shadows added. not sure if this will end up printed with colour. but i think black and white will suit the story. dropping the contrast on the whole page gives it a bit of a silver screen kind of feel.
The story is a psychedelic occult mystery set in a small New England town in the 1990s about a young woman who gets to know her (recently deceased) estranged mother by taking on the task of going through her possessions in her old house after she passes away.
I’m six pages into drawing this comic and here’s the first page. I’ll probably add some greys/halftones. I’m quite excited about it. It’s a horror story. More info sooooon.
