Blurbs of Cycle 1 (Launch Cycle) Projects/Stories

Standard

See this posted on the Current Projects Page here.

Cycle 1 (Launch Cycle)
These are the six titles (stories) that will launch Cartwheel Group 3 Comics.

Polka Dots & Plaid:  Drawing inspiration from What Not to Wear and A Clockwork Orange, Polka Dots and Plaid are the hosts of a week-long makeover show of the same name where guests’ style is made-over in front of the camera while their souls are made-over behind it.

Fame + Fortune:  The Phamai (pronounced famay and heard as “fame” to human ears) are an alien race who have chosen a human champion and endowed him with super powers to fight off an impending monster invasion of earth.

Adelmira, the War Mage:  A Frazettian-style sorceress warrior woman from another dimension crosses over to earth through the moon to chase and kill an incorporeal dragon before the prophecy of it being birthed into physicality by three earthen zombie brides is fulfilled.

Trinity:  The tale of a vampire (Reckless Abandon), man-made shape-shifting human monster (Mongrel), and space sorcerer (Soul Weaver), who represent the mind, body, and soul, and how they met while running away from They, an organization that may have been instrumental in their coming together.

Immortals, Inc.: Our version of “the seven” (You know who they are!), with Gilded Lady, Nonchalant, That Guy!, Ebb & Flow, Time Bandit, Little Johnny Gomez, and Outlier, as their base is attacked by a known enemy.

Panamaniac: An adventure of Panama’s premiere superhero with sidekick, Panama Joven (Young Panama), while defending the regular folk of the nation.

Fame & Fortune Sketches by Orion Vang

Fame & Fortune is the project that is currently in production at CG3.  Since it is in process, we thought we’d share some sketches of character designs Orion Vang has been working for one of the cast members of Fame & Fortune.  His name is Juan Perez.

Soul Weaver Sketch Color

Image

This is a sketch (character design) of Soul Weaver.  He’s a sorcerer character, along the lines of Marvel’s Dr. Strange, except that he’s from another planet.   He may be featured in a forthcoming story.

Mongrel Suit Sketch Color

Image

This is a sketch (character design) of suit [the colors may change] to be worn by Mongrel.  He’s a shape-shifting laboratory-made “monster” character (who maybe used to be a man or maybe not) that may be featured in a forthcoming story.  He had a head and tentacles, but his color and tentacles started reminding me a little too much of Zoidberg from Futurama.  So, back to the drawing board on that!MongrelSuitSketch1102013Color

Reckless Abandon Sketch Color

Image

Remember this?  This is the color version of the B&W sketch (character design) of Reckless Abandon presented previously.  To remind you, she’s a vampire character that may be featured in a forthcoming story.  She’s not quite finalized, yet, but we’re getting there.  What do you think of her look so far?
