My New Project

Hey Everybody,
as some of you probably know Im working on my Diploma at the moment. The topic of my Diploma is a graphik novel about a kurdish hero from the 1830s, who fought against other kurdish clans and later on against the ottoman empire.
My teacher told me to create some sort of Internet diary about the making of the book, and since Ive already have my own blogspot, I thought it would be much better to post the entries here.

Sadly I had to cancel the gig at Moonstonebooks, because it was impossible to work on both projects at the same time. I think the book im working on right now has a lot of poetnetial and thats why I rejected the Moonstonebooks gig. I may regret it soon or not, but sometimes youll have to believe in yourself and thats what Im doing right now!

I believe that the project Im working on is more important than anything else Ive done so far:)
I hope I wont regret it:)

Heres some of the art Ive prepared so far.
let me know what you think!
all the best,
Sedat:)

These pages look really fine in terms of layout and design. I guess my only question is will you be inking and shading too?

If you are going to add speech balloons and dialog I recommend you go digital and do it on the computer after you finish the art.

That's too bad about MoonStone books though.

Hey Everybody:)
thanks for the heads up and checking my stuff. I really appricciate that:)

@Scrubbles,
thanks man, glad you like the stuff:) More to come soon and trust me you havent seen the good stuff yet:)

@Poppart,
hey Olli, du weisst was abgeht hehehe. Oh mann du weisst garnicht was f├╝r eine qual es war die Pferde zu zeichnen...und glaub mir, das war noch der leichteste Part. Ich habe gerade eine Doppelseite mit ca. 100 Pferden hinter mir :)also wenn ich da mal keine Heiratsantr├Ąge bekomme...

@Tristan,
thanks man:) yeah I will completely pencil and ink/shade all these Pages. According to the dialogs I have to say that I hope that the book will find its way to a big european publisher and then someone else will take care of the lettering :)
Yeah I know its kind of sad that I couldnt do the Moonstone gig, but I believe in the project Im working on and Im sure it will catch some attention (actually it already has...) so lets see how everythings going to develope:)

@Steven,
thanks man:) and dont worry;)
glad you like the mustache(s):)

@neo,

thank you for the nice words:)

All the best,
Sedat
