Another sample from a new and steamy Zombolette story. Under-18s and lady-lovers: this might be too sexy for you.
…Animated by the charming Dave Abbott. This was my first try at writing a script and drawing for something that moves. Comics do obviously involve a sense of timing and rhythm, but I was surprised at how different it was writing with the intention of bringing the action ‘to life’. The timing needs to be absolutely specific, and the voice acting has to carry so much of the humour (Zombolette and Cameron were voiced by my delightful but stinky little brothers).
I’m looking forward to getting more practice!
Hey y’all, I just realised that I should probably post here to let all my AMAZING FANS know that I have moved all the old posts from this blog to www.scarlettebaccini.com, where I’ll continue to post general updates on my other projects and art in general.
I’m now using zombolette.com only to document Zombolette stuff, since she has become a whole world of her own (really, she’s so fat she has satellites). Maybe this is messy and maybe I’ll move everything to the other site soon enough. ONLY TIME WILL TELL.
So, now you know!
I’m always interested to see comics in their non-polished phase, so here’s a page of Zombolette freshly scanned, pre-photoshop. Since I put grey inks on the page, I cant just zap everything into black-and-white on photoshop. This has been problematic in the past, cos it makes it hard to get sharp lines out of the printer, so I’m looking into other methods…
In case anyone missed Scaryminds’ outlandishly lovely review of Zombolette, here’s a snippet of what they had to say:
“There is no room for Twilight in Zombolette, though our zombie gal is infinitely more interesting than the rather droll Bella. Baccini develops her character well, doesn’t let the overall personality falter at any stage, and for mine presents a concept that should have most dark genre dreamers taking names and notes. Zombolette joins Killeroo as one of the great Aussie creations that alas remains under the radar of the vast majority of comic book readers. I’m not going to say much more, read the book to get the good oil, but if the concept of a zombie with body armour made up of tampons, with an IUD helmet appeals, then dial on in, that’s just for starters. Scarlette Baccini is either stark raving mad, or an unsung genius of the script, your call!”
