Lady Gloves - Film noir comic by ming85 Lady Gloves - Film noir comic by ming85
Click download on the left to see two illustrations I did for this project, and a sample of my storyboard.

Information:
Cheesecake! Studio was commissioned to design the program booklet for this years Abunai convention, including a 20page manga with the theme Film Noir, which was one of the most fun themes ever (the witty quotes, dramatic lighting and endless cigarette smoke! And I kinda went loose with that insane action sequence in the end.) It also made a bit of fun of the convention audience, staff and houserules ("huisregels") The script is based on a collection famous film Noir quotes from various movies and Bill Watterson XD

The final result:

I love how all these different personal styles ended up mixed in one comic. Working with so many different artists was a cool experiment, but also an organizing NIGHTMARE, so we'll probably never do this again!!

Let me know what you think!!
Thanks for reading!

Ahaha! That's awesome! I was wondering what'd happen at the end, and then it's like: BAM! Sailor Moon Cosplay! Ahaha! Definite fave!

And Lady Fireheart seems like my kind of gal! She deserves fanart!

Though, I think it would've gone more with the theme had some of the scenes been in black and white. But then again...

Anyways, BRAVO! I love your little mangas!

haha indeed! We were totally counting on black and white, and then the organisation told us 'It's gonna be colour! gha!" we kinda panicked :D But in the end, the colours do help to sort of smooth out the transitions between the different artists.

They do! Just looking through you can see the difference of styles on the different pages. You probably wouldn't notice if it were in black and white.

OH WAIT! I get what she meant by saying "cheating with a Japanese girl"!! Very clever...
