Word Smith – 100 Backers

Link to Word Smith Kickstarter.

A little slow on the update but I want to let everyone know that the Word Smith Kickstarter has reached a 100 Backers a few days ago! It’s currently sitting at 125 backers and I’m hoping that will increase over the weekend. I think I will rest easy once the target has been reached and thanks to everyone who has supported this project.

Word Smith – Now LIVE

Link to Word Smith Kickstarter.

The Word Smith Kickstarter is LIVE! For those who have done it, launching a Kickstarter is a mixture of nerves and excitement. You’re putting your project out into the world and asking people to support it without knowing if people are going to like it or hate it!

If you are reading this post, I do hope you check out the Kickstarter. Any support you can give will be appreciated, even if it’s just sharing the link around and wishing me well. If you can pledge, that would be awesome! Let’s hope the campaign is successful and we can bring Word Smith to life!

Almost ready for Word Smith Kickstarter to launch in about a week’s time! I love seeing the transition from the rough sketch to the completed pencils. Victoria and Sparky are meeting Celia for the first time.

Almost ready for Word Smith Kickstarter to launch! Everything is slowly falling into place now. This is the one of my favourite pages from storyboard to the full colours. Victoria and Dimitri are steering the airship through a lightning storm!

Word Smith is on track for a June 2017 Kickstarter launch and this is the storyboard and pencils for page 6. In this page, something has gone wrong with one of Victoria’s word! I love seeing a page develop from the roughs into the final product.

Word Smith – Reward Sketch

Word Smith is on track for a June 2017 Kickstarter launch and I’m excited to show two of the reward sketches. The original pencils will be available as a reward pledge when the Kickstarter launches. It’ll be a fantastic piece to add to your original art collection.

Word Smith – Work in Progress

Word Smith is on track for a June 2017 Kickstarter launch and I’m excited to show more work in progress. This one is Victoria visiting Bonnie at her patisserie. It’s always great to see how the rough sketches develop to the detailed pencils.

Word Smith – Font

Link to Project Word Smith.

Word Smith is on track for a June 2017 Kickstarter launch. I’ve been investigating different fonts to use for Word Smith that suits the atmosphere of this graphic novel. This one is called Steampunk from Marta Van Eck Designs. It’s definitely in consideration!

Word Smith – Horizontal Banner

Link to Project Word Smith.

Word Smith is on track for a June 2017 Kickstarter launch. This is the horizontal banner artwork by P.R. Dedelis. You can see the progression from the rough pencils to the detailed pencils. There were some other drafts but this was the final image that we went for. It’s trying to capture 3 elements of the story :

  • Sparky playing with Celia
  • Victoria in the midst of crafting a word
  • The exciting airship chase
