The Wolf and 3 Houses….
A fairy tale about a wolf pup out to break a spell on three lonely, magical houses.The first house is a house of Glass…
I started developing this little bewitched wolf character a long time ago. Initially, it was an idea for a point&click, puzzle/ exploration game.
Happy New Year btw!
The little wolf explores 3 great houses based off The Three Little Pigs, defeating all the Bad PIgs inside. You eventually find out the wolf is actually a child under a spell they themselves released. There is a Safe House where the Good Auntie PIgs hide as you save their houses from sad, dark destruction.
The wolf does find a companion in the Glass Garden—a talking, sassy sprout. Actually, it’s a Celeriac Root.
This project was meant to only be 1 chapter about the Glass Garden House. I wanted to try comics again and just jumped in, cold water and all. The last time I ever did comics was in high school, on printer paper, in pencil and uncolored. And I showed it only to my sister haha.
It was hard finding a good process and a balance between clean and loose. I think there are still many things to be learned. Looking back, it still looks a little messy;;; I want to get better at creating something easy to read, not too rigid, but not too loose…while enjoying the process!
Our Wolf pup went towards a more simple style to contrast the foliage in the background. Not gonna lie, it also make them easier to draw! But with simplicity, I learned you have to be rather precise or else something always looks off haha. Here are the Character Sheets with exploration and even ideas for alternative costumes like a real game!
I’ll be revisiting and revising this project this year! Excited for the next two houses I had in mind…
