The Old Lantern Shop
The Old LanTern Shop is a future comic project that I own!
Ruïn Norien is the daughter of King Ruinel Norien;
coming from a distant and ever-changing land,
she wanders here and there with the aim of
acquiring what might break her family's curse:
bad fortune and ruin.
The young knight is taciturn and serious, but not closed to any familiarity. She also has rough habits, like a tomboy.
Accustomed to wandering, Ruïn is perfectly content with
a muddy patch of ground to spend the night; the Norien lineage is accustomed to wandering, which is why she shows
a fascinating facility of adaptation.
Resistant and resourceful, Ruïn will never cease to roam the lands of Veilmeil in search of what could break the eternal wandering of her people.
If there is one important thing to know about dealing with
Sultana Akhnoirah, it is that you must always show great strength.
She will only listen to allies with the potential she deems useful
for her empire: give-and-take is her way.
The queen shows no apparent sympathy and makes no gifts.
The reputation of her country is the image of her ruler, and
Akhnoirah rules with a heavy iron glove.
She occupies the entire dry desert area, dotted with basiliks and titans trained for her teams. The empire lives mainly from pillaging.
Once allied with the Djinn Viatuur and a friend of the fairy Velouette, Akhnoirah lives recluse in its vast dry lands, at the edge of Veilmeil.
If you think it is almost impossible to observe a fairy, you should know in Veilmeil that it is even rarer to find a Fol.
Ruloupi is one of them;
a wandering mage, sometimes living among her cousins Farfadets,
she only appears when help is needed.
Ruloupi's body is made of foliage and black ink, and from her brush can come history or oblivion. It is said that Fol appears only when
the balance of a wandering soul is fading like the dim glow
of a candle. Sometimes she offers deals, but beware, because unlike the fairies, the Fol asks for something in return.
In the bottom of the lantern shop, a guard is missing from
the whole row of security guards. Grivne, as usual, took the initiative and left of its own free will. A failing guard, but a happy one,
Grivne roams the forests of Veilmeil in search of one thing: fortune.
Accompanied by Grapine, its bottomless chest, it takes malicious pleasure to steal the badauts walkers and the poor merchants little warned, without we can understand why.
Go try to understand the motivations of a statue...
Not really alive, but simply animated, Grivne does not need rest and continues to roam the forests, which earned it the name "Music Box", because of the songs it plays from time to time. Music is the second thing that makes its mechanical heart vibrate.
• Work in process •
A few pages that I have fun making
from time to time when I'm bored and have time.
The goal is to make pages without pressure
with simple compositions.
Concepts & Researches
Full Illu and Black & white versions
are available on my patreon !
Concept art of the fairy Velouette. A water fairy and made up essentially of water; the cascading dress is an integral part of her body, as well as the vegetation clothes.
These are the first attempts before arriving at the current result.
