Graphic Novel Sketches

So I've had this idea in my head for a while and I wanted to turn it into a short animation. But the story is far to complex and wordy for an animation short enough to be feasibly done by only me. Therefore! I have decided to turn this story into a graphic novel.

The story centers around a young woman named Anna and the relationships that she has with the other women in her family. There is her younger sister, Polina, whose marraige Anna is unhappy about. There is her mother, Vla, whose timid nature infuriates Anna. And there is her grandmother, Yona, who is a ghost that only Anna can see due to her wish for a strong female role model.

It takes place on and by the sea. It starts with an arguement, which results in a terrible journey with irreversable concequences and a sad ending.

Each member of the family undergoes her own emotional journey.

No male character is ever seen during this story.

So anyway! The script is underway and here are a few character sketches!


Anna and Polina:


Anna, Polina, Vla and do ignore that sketch of Yona, I do not like it.

Polina, Vla and Yona. Yona died at sea, which is why she has barnacles and a starfish on her.

Anna. I prefer her in the red dress.

So yeah, this should be good.
