Alanda Ref Picture

Alanda, a young girl - haven't decided her exact age yet - with a bit of tom-boyish habits and very brave. She has a very determined attitude and won't stop at nothing. For her Fail is her best friend and she loves him - also has a girlie crush on him.

This ref was done using Bristol Board of some weird kind I found here but seems to work awesomely well with Copics, which it is what matters.

Page 2

So I decided to post here page two. Is not a spoiler so, no harm in doing so, i think XD

Random fact - Mirandese donkeys are dark brown with light grey hooves. Also they are super fluffy and have a dense fur. They don't look like Donkey from Shrek...

What is GWaD?

GWaD stands for Gold, War and Donkeys. It is the title for a webcomic in progress. There is no site with the pages of it yet, but will happen sometime next year. For now, everything related with GWaD - illustrations, page previews, sketches and concepts - will be posted on this blog.

Gold, War and Donkeys is a pre-medieval like story about a mercenary wannabe known as Fail - his real name is something that he doesn't wish people to know - that tries really hard to gain some fame and recognition. He has skills but fails to apply them decently.

He will get himself involved in an adventure, a mission that a powerful and not human being, trusted him with. Accompaining him are his human and animal friends - Alanda, a young girl that has a girly crush on Fail and is a bit of a tom-boy, Rio, an old half deaf man that believes he can summon lightning, Rita, a small yet very strong donkey and Gralha, a talking crow. In the future, a mad engineer known as Farelo will join him.

I will do my best to keep this blog updated. At least once a week. Feel free to leave comments and opinions. Enjoy ;)
