Project Tabby – Act 1 Page 4 – Detailed Pencils

A quick showcase of the difference between the Roughs and Detailed Pencils for Act 1 Page 4 with artwork by P.R. Dedelis. The family of cats sadly watch as their local fish market is closed. This is the initial catalyst which makes this family of cats move into Tabby’s neighbourhood.

Project Tabby – Act 2 – Page 2 & 3

Click for Act 2 – Page 1 Roughs.

Act 1 serves as the setup or the catalyst of the story. With the closure of their local fish market, another family of cats enters Tabby’s neighborhood. Act 2 sees the conflict build as this new family starts taking fish away from Tabby’s family!

Project Tabby – Start of Act 2

Act 2 starts with a new day. It’s really a setup page with Tabby’s life on the left and the Fish Market Family of cats on the right. While Tabby gets up in his cozy bed and struts the neighborhood, the other family of cats had the brave the outside and are now planning their next move.

Project Tabby – Page 15 16 17 – End of Act 1

Project Tabby’s roughs of Page 15, 16 & 17. (Check here for previous roughs.) This completes the roughs for Act 1.

The Fish Market Family (from out of town) have now regrouped under the clock tower. Each of them of sharing what they have learnt about the new neighborhood. This ending to Act 1 is meant to foreshadow what they are planning with the action to commence in Act 2 and climax in Act 3!

Project Tabby – Page 14 Roughs

Project Tabby’s roughs of Page 14. (Check here for previous roughs.) This is the continuation of the B Story. It’s meant to be sweet but a very innocent meeting. The shape of the centre panel is more than enough to explain to the reader what is happening without words!

Project Tabby – Page 13 Roughs

Project Tabby’s roughs of Page 13. (Check here for previous roughs.) I’m particularly fond of this page. It’s the start of the B-Story where the male kitten from Tabby’s family meets the female kitten from the other family of cats.

It’s really a chance meeting where the 2 kittens bump into each other. It’s a lot of fun in Act 2 to expand on this storyline! Won’t spoil how this B-Story ends but I think it’s a nice conclusion.

Project Tabby – Rewards

Project Tabby is progressing well with only 2 more pages from Act 2 to be pencilled and inked. I’m currently in a position when I’m starting to get ready for the project to be put onto kickstarter (it’s a crowd sourcing website).

The initial rewards are pretty straightforward e.g. PDF copy of the work, published copy of the work, thank you credits. Where it gets interesting are the higher ranged rewards which are listed below! I’m very excited about these and hopefully when I get this project kickstarted, the backers will think so too. (All include a published copy of Tabby.)

Bronze :
A piece of original Tabby sketch by the artist P. R. Dedelis. This is a definite one of a kind item as all sketches will be individual.

Background, Tabby, project, personal, artwork

Silver :
Similar to the Bronze reward, however this sketch will be a lot more detailed with background included!

Gold :
This is where is gets great! You can submit a photo and the artist will include it as part of your Tabby sketch. A piece of original artwork which includes your likeness.

Platinum :
You get the choice of Bronze, Silver or Gold AS WELL as being included as a background character in the comic itself. Your likeness will be part of Tabby universe.

Project Tabby – Page 11 & 12 roughs

More roughs from Project Tabby. I like these 2 pages, they show Tabby and his family enjoying some fishy treats. One of the kittens is missing though! (The next few pages were cover where he is!). Act 1 is to set the scene and establish the central conflict. Wait for Act 2 for the fur to fly.

If you missed the previous roughs you can click for Page 8 & 9 roughs.
