Noble

First off, I know I haven't posted anything in like 100 years, last year was a crazy busy year full of turns and twists... it was school of hard knocks for sure:) I'm excited for 2010 and really feel like it's been off to a great creative start. Hope all is well with everyone in their start to the new year as well!

So, this is a side project I'm working on with a buddy of mine from work. I've always loved the pulp genre as well as the 1920s in general. The fashion, the music, the film noir look, it's all beautiful stuff. So, that's the setting of this story... here are some character designs and concepts I've been sketching.







This scene from Road to Perdition is beautiful as it really depicts the feel of Chicago in the early 1930s, this movie will be great reference for the comic...



Here's another vid of an animated piece from the animatrix I love that has the steampunk/film noir feel... it's called "A Detective Story"
