About this project

Fantasy genre is always very high tone and epic, and the narrative seldom leaves space for mundane moments. Characters and their relationships are presented in an ideal fashion. Love is treated the same, romanticized without those fun awkward moments.This occurred to me, once a friend of mine asked me to sketch a dwarven woman. At first it
seamed an easy task, but than I realized, that they are rarely portrayed or described since - well they have beards. So I was stuck with a task of drawing an attractive female with a beard. And that got me wondering, what is considered a quality catch in dwarven dating. The quality of the beards surely must come first.

Enchanted explorer is a graphic novel devised to explore into that rarely described parts of fantasy worlds: the dating of fantasy creatures. If you ever wondered how a troll finds his significant other, help me put this comic book together and Ill try to give you my answer. Please bear in mind this is by no means an adult comic-book, but a fun satire of the well known fantasy motives and dating in general.
                                           

                                                  The Story:

Five centuries after the destruction of the first Earth, by the Seven lords of apocalypse, one of the seven, the dreaded necromancer Queen Uni Songa has finally, been apprehended and brought to face the justice of the high court of Magic. 

Yet even as the verdict was swift, the sentencing soon drew to a halt as the accused seems impervious to any mean of corporeal punishment.The infernal creature even seam to relish it. 

One punishment after another and the courts aggravation only seam to expend.Until one of the high mages suggested a different approach. If the punishment of the body is insufficient the punishment of the mind is required.To a overblown ego such as the Queen of the Necromancers what could be a better insult than a constant servitude on a task considered so medial, so insignificant that it defies its own purpose, And so Uni was forced into apprenticeship with Juna Ogana Academica Magica first, foremost and only expert in the wonderful field of sexual and mating habits of magical folk and creatures. Thus begin the amatory adventures of this unlikely pair.

                                         A personal note:

This comic-book began as a short story Enchanted explorer, that won the first place, Grand Prix award on the international Comic salon in Belgrade.

I have been in this business for over 10 years now, and though I have drawn over 300 comic book pages, they were mostly web comics and short stories based on the ideas of other people. I always dreamed of doing a graphic novel, with my own plot and characters. It is so much more fun designing characters that you know the way you like. So please have a look at the pages and the illustrations, and if you like my concepts and think I got what it takes to make a great comic-book, please support my dream. Thanks, I think it will be fun....

This project is made possible with help and support of my agent and representative Maja Samardzija. Her help in organizing all this was paramount.

Risks and challenges

Iam from Eastern Europe so English is a second language for me. You may have noticed that reading trough the project description. If the project gets funded I will hire an editor to help me improve the dialogues and the text in the comic.
Since most of the comic is done by myself I perceive no particular difficulties regarding the production itself. I tend to be a bit compulsive regarding the quality of work at times, and that may slow down production, but that is the reason why I overextended the production time.
