Tortall Comics Project

:star: This comics anthology is NOT for profit! We are making this because we love Tamora Pierce and her works! :star:

The GOALS
1) Make comics based on Tamora Pierce's novels and have fun and learn from the experience.

2) Create a relatively consistent world, with designs based on research taken from our reference Tumblr: referencetortall.tumblr.com/

3) Take all of the entries submitted, bind them into a book, and send a copy to Tamora Pierce!


When the time comes to "publish" the anthology, anyone who wants a copy can order one, and we will only charge what it takes to make the book, plus shipping and handling. Thank you! :D

The COMIC
1) Each entry has an eight page limit, not including a cover page (so maximum pages to be submitted per entry = 9 pages)

2) Can be in black and white or color

3) Pages must be submitted in A4 size, following the templates you can find in our gallery.

4) For a list of tutorials we recommend, please visit this blog entry: tortallcomicsproject.deviantar…

Of course. There's also the reference blog too if you'd rather share them on tumblr, Yellowis4happy keeps it very active.

I may need a few extra days do finish my inks, but most likely not after Wednesday (9th).

Hi!

I'm a columnist for the online magazine for YA Interrobang. I was wondering if the founders/hosts would like to do an interview about Tamora Pierce and the artwork you're sharing. My column focuses primarily on book fanart so I'm willing to do multiple interviews if anyone is interested.

You can check out the magazine and examples of my work at www.yainterrobang.com

Keep up the awesome work! Contact me at the e-mail below.

Hello, Natasha! I just tried to send you an email and it couldn't go through, hmmm. Was there a typo in it somewhere? I'd love to talk with you more about this, but not through comments like this.

Sorry about that. I wrote a correction, but maybe it didn't go through before this.

i do have a question. Is there like a seance or book we comic-ize or is it chosen for us? Like is there a list if chapter/ seances already done?

Scenes are chosen by the contributors to the anthology, not chosen for them. There's a list of which scenes were done in the last volume of the anthology but I'm having a hard time finding it at the moment, and no list up for which scenes have been chosen this time around. Were you thinking of joining?

Was a final design for the killing devices decided upon/drawn?

In terms of the standardized designs for each character, how close to the group designs must our characters look. Obviously you can't make Alanna blonde or make Numair really short, but for specific facial features how much leeway are we given. Also what kinds of designs are we held to for characters who don't show up very much, do we make our own design sheets based on the book descriptions?

The designs for the group were more of a guideline. We thought it would be easier for reader's if the character's looks were similar.  For instance that Daine wears a blue dress in entries that happen during the same time, etc.  Also we tried to cover the average height of characters.  Characters that have no designs from the previous book are left for you to do what you like :)

We haven't talked about it much (speaking as an admin), I'd say just try to adhere to the books as much as possible. Staying close to the designs would help in making each character recognizable, though, from entry to entry.
