Project Zomba

Another year gone, the awaited MDeC comic pitch is here again. At first it doesn't seem like we're gonna go for it, since everyone seems to be 'idling' on their lazy ever-growing butts. WAKE UP GUYS! Hahahaha.

Nonetheless, we buckled up at the very last moment and managed to submit something, at the very least.

Project Zomba 2008.

A concept i had in mind for a comic some time ago, originally among the one-shot plans developed for our yearly 'Exdee' zine. The core concept, is about an observer living through time, witnessing the very evolving nature of the world, civilization, and most importantly, the people.

Why a zombie then?

Well, isn't it obvious enough that we're fan of zombies? =D

The initial version of this story was supposed to be heavier, than the one we proposed to MDeC. Obviously because of last years unfortunate rejection of our controversial 'Khalif'; a title developed for last year's comic pitch (samples are viewable at my deviantart gallery). This time around, we decided to tone down a little and try to cater the judging preferences. Hopefully.

So, the 'controversial' elements in the title had to be thrown off. These includes subjects relating to politics, religions, beliefs, among other things. Perhaps there'll be a version of our own in the far future. But for now, 'Zomba' is more of a portrayal of historical happenings and of humanity.

With all those crappings, isn't it proper for me to offer some pictures instead? =D

The legendary-10-minutes cover that sucks absolutely f**king ass.

First page sample.

2nd page sample. The hands with handphones are recycled from an unused test page >:D

Third, non sequential page (to the previous 2), picked from a random scene throughout the comic.


These 2 character sheets are done in a mere few minutes. Dadadaddaaa. They're Yazid and Hasan, respectively.

Character development sketches. Haha whatever.

Thankgod we made through the preliminary rounds, and up for the final pitching. Presentation will be on 27th. Now's the time to kick some serious ass and work damn hard for the grant. Graveyardstudio sure needs this kickstart. Well, not really, but who wouldn't want a 20k fund? Imagine all the food you could eat...Haha seriously. 20k's a big kickstart for a small, unknown group like us.

Anyway, tell me if any of you guys're gonna come for the pitching =D

On another note, my dad's sick of dengue fever. Help pray for his well-being please?
