Lùmina is an awesome comic project by Emanuele Tenderini and Linda Cavallini.
If you’re interested and want to see more of this awesome project you should support it on INDIEGOGO, click here!.

As you can see there are very cheap rewards! You can get a full digital copy with only 5€.

Lùmina is a bright, colorful italian graphic novel project by Emanuele Tenderini and Linda Cavallini, authors of many titles previously published by names such as Sergio Bonelli, Delcourt, Ankama, Mondadori, Hachette, Les Humanoïdes associés, DeAgostini, Panini.

The book’s genre is in between sci-fi and fantasy, mainly inspired by Miyazaki, who you’ll certainly recognize in the vast landscapes and open spaces. Wonderful creatures and charismatic characters will be involved in one of the most amazing adventures ever told in a graphic novel.

The plot unveils around the story of two children, Kite and Miriam, brother and sister, who find themselves thrown in a parallel world called Lùmina.

This will be one of the first comic books in the world to be coloured with the hyperflat technique (link) and printed using hexachrome, a six-color printing process (link).

The book will be available in Italian, English and French.


We decided to bring this project to life through the crowdfunding community, as we believe that the straight connection between the authors and the readers is the strongest factor during the publishing process.

Plus, we are sure that the only way the comics world can be brought to a higher level is through the support of its ultimate investors - the readers.

UP

There are still a few days left to contribute to what looks like a very interesting project. Go support Lùmina

I finished the girl painting of which I showed some steps in my last post. And I also did a random portrait.

Big sketch dump.

I always start a lot of pictures but finish none.

Trying to finish a sketch I did almost a year ago. Too bad I only have time  to work on this at night. At this rate I’ll never finish.
Oh, and I love ‘The Tombs of Atuan’.

Self portrait. Not sure it’s good, I let the people who know me judge it ;)
I’ve always avoided this kind of exercise because I didn’t think it was worthwhile, but it really is worth the while…it was a nightmare to make in many ways, the lighting kept chainging, I couldn’t keep the same exact position throughout the painting session…in a word I had a lot of trouble doing this :D so different than painting from a model! 
I hope I have learnt something and that hard work will pay off eventually.
(notice the size of my eye-circles…)

Speed painting done both for fun and for practice.
I think I need to work on color theory.
And in making colours contrast more.

I shouldn’t be doing this.
*feeling guilty*
I have important work to do, but fanart is more enjoyable than work, especially when you feel like shit artistically.
Still a lot to fix and refine there tho.
