Anubis: Guardian Of The Tomb

In development from Cadre Corner Studios - an original comic project:

Anubis: Guardian of the Tomb

The Premise: In modern Egypt an ancient balance kept for some four and a half millenia has been undone.  A thief named Akil, the inadvertand purpotraitor of this act, as just punishment for this violation is cursed to become the guardian of the very ruins and tombs he once robbed.  Keeping the rest of the dead and restoring the balance of powers from the distant past both are the tasks of...Anubis.

Included in the creative team: writer Bill Taylor  penciler Stephie Stone  inker P.J. Magalhaes

As a preview of things to come, here are some sample sketches courtesy of my penciler Stephie Stone - more of here work is available at http://lady-cybercat.deviantart.com/

Re: Anubis: Guardian Of The Tomb

I am seeking additional members to my creative team on Anubis.

The following positions are sought:

colorist/grayscaler:  Adds in colors, whether in gray/b&w or vivid colors - most likely the former much as Bubba The Redneck Werewolf started out.

letterer:  The person who arranges the word bubbles and fits the script into them.


There is also another important task that, although would fit a letterer well, any good artist can undertake as well which is why I am listing it specifically:  I need a title/logo design for Anubis: Guardian of the Tomb.  Here's what I have in mind, and whomever can render it best I will credit for logo design and even add onto the team:

1) The "A" in Anubis I want as a pyramid - a stone Egyptian pyramid naturally.

2) The remainer of Anubis I want in Arabic-style lettering - by this I mean in a lettering style that is reminescent of Arabic/Islamic writing.

3) 'Guardian of the Tomb' I would like written like a hieroglyph - not translated into a hieroglyph literally of course - suggestions include incasing it within a cartouche or even incorporating it into the "A" pyramid base as a stone stela.

Altogether, I recommend looking into ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and the Arabic/Islamic Motif.  The idea is to invoke both ancient Egypt and Islamic Egypt in the logo simultainiously - appropriate given the comic's setting.

Re: Anubis: Guardian Of The Tomb

To those still curious: we are a little over halfway through penciling and inking is underway.

I've now added in addition to my penciler Stephie and inker PJ a letterer and a logo designer.  Things are looking promising. smile

Re: Anubis: Guardian Of The Tomb

The penciling is now on the final pages at last. smile  Inking is roughly 1/4 complete as well.

As a bonus, here's an inked character concept sketch courtesy of the inker PJ Magalhaes:

Re: Anubis: Guardian Of The Tomb

Inking is now about halfway complete and grayscaling has begun in addition.  Also word balloons are being sketched out.

At WizardWorldChicago Cadre had mentioned that January is our tenative release month, however no specific date just yet and the date may change in the future.

Re: Anubis: Guardian Of The Tomb

Anubis is going to be in black and white (or grayscales rather) much as Bubba originally was.  When the opportunity comes I would definetely like to make a TPB in full color and I told both my inker and penciler to keep the original drafts for just such a purpose.

Again it's in b&w so no one is dissapointed.

Stephie Stone has made a special full-colored version print she will be handing out at a "furry" convention over the Labor Day weekend.

While PJ is trying to wrap up inking I've already got Jennifer started on lettering and the logo is being mailed to her for scanning.

At Memphis, Tennessee? Sorry, Red, but it will be a while before I feel like heading East again.

Is there going to be an official website for the comic?  How do people get copies of prints?

*huddled in a corner rocking on his feet*
The questions...the questions!  They never stop they never stop!! tongue

Stephie initially will be selling them directly at the convention but she ought to be able to offer a few via her web site - she sells prints of her art fairly regularly and, given Anubis' interest here, I imagine she'll see what she can do.

Naturally I don't want to be presumtuous but regarding prints that's the best I hope I can offer for now, although as relase date nears the Cadre Corner itself may have more to offer...
