Ariel

Ariel

by ayna
Ariel is the son of the escapee witch-slave Sycorax, who fled their hellish life on a West Indian plantation for the ruins of an abandoned colony on an unnamed desert island. Her second son, Caliban, is born on that very island a few weeks after their escape. Years after her death, Ariel and Caliban remain, but the master of the isle is now Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan who arrived twelve years ago with his baby daughter Miranda, and this is where our story begins...


Set in the mid to late 18th century, in the (French) Caribbean, the comic still follows the general structure of The Tempest, though I have had to add a whole new look into Ariel's own background which is not included in the original play.
I have made as few cuts as possible using the original text, though there will be a modern version of the text available as well!

So, stay tuned for more information on the comic, on the historical and literary background, character profiles, artworks and much more!

@Biscuit: Ooh thanks! I'm experimenting with some styles in this comic. The Tempest is great, you should read it! Or wait and see what happens in the comic ;)
I really like the characters costumes. And the backgrounds. I've never read the Tempest though.

INKTOBER 2013
Well so it's Inktober, when you basicaly have to draw an ink drawing on a regular basis all through October, in order to improve your technique, or just as an incentive to draw more inky stuff! You can post them on twitter or facebook at #inktober. So one of my sketches was of Ariel, of course :)
More details on Inktober here: http://mrjakeparker.com/2013/09/30/inktober-2013/.
