About this project

£1,689

113

I've been itching to interpret Hans Andersen's The Ugly Duckling in comic form. I have a personal attachment to the story so I'm going to be pushing myself to create something beautiful and appropriate for all to enjoy.

I'll be adding more rewards according to the response I get :)

Sample page (Work in progress):


Character lineup



Here are some preliminary doodles. I enjoy engaging in character development to the point where I can make an companion art book. 

 
I have high hopes for this project! I'm currently working on making the comic itself!

Some concept backgrounds. I'm using Morden Park Hall in London as inspiration, I go there to draw and collect reference frequently.



Some more visual development and study.

 I should have a finished comic by the first week of December!

I'm very grateful for any help in the funding of my project, I'll be handwriting a thank you note and packing the rewards for backers personally :)

UPDATE!

Streach goals! We've hit £800, so everyone with £5+ pledges will be getting an A4 print! Yay!

If we hit £1,200, anyone with £10+ will receive their pack in a nicely printed folder! Yay!

Risks and challenges

Printing! I cant really afford to print my own work which is why I'm doing this kickstarter campaign.

I'm also pushing myself to work more and with discipline, this is ultimately a constant learning experience for me! Ultimately I hope this story will bring a couple of smiles to young and old faces :)
