DreadOut FanComic (?)
I'm thinking about doing a DreadOut FanComic ever since I found out the DreadOut comic was not really going to be about the Game's characters. I really do want a comic, but I want it to be about Linda and Co, so we can see what's cannon or not. I've been thinking and sketching concept artwork and designs. I proably won't start
on it until after Act II is released because I need to know the whole story. Also even if I start on this fancomic, it'll probably take months or even a whole year before it's actually posted because I'm only one person working on an entire comic.
Anyways, if I choose to do it, I'll be drawing it a cartoon, but slightly manga influenced artstyle, mainly because I'm not the best at my anatomy and drawing in a semi-cartoon-manga style is the easiest for me. You can see a concept art on the right, but it's the ugly version since I drew it traditionally. I'll draw a clearer digital version later, this is just a reference and testing for the style
I'm going to stick it to the game's storyline as close as possible, ocassionally adding some additional things here and there, but you can expect that it's going to be similar to the game. The "battling" and exploring bit is going to be a difficult to plan out, but I think I can manage.
There's going to be one main big thing I'm going to change is that I'm going to make Linda mute (can't talk). The reason so is to replicate the "silent protagonist" feeling like in the game. Another thing is that you can barely figure out what's going inside her head (except for mini-dialogue and journal notes) and I don't want her to say things out of her character. Her "talking" are going to be speech bubbles with emotes or expressions inside them so it's easier to know what's she's "saying". I still may or may not do it (time and pressure hurts), but I really do want to do it
