Drawing for myself – Nora

This one goes out to Honoel (read his comic by the way, it’s incredible!), who very politely nudged me about a character who appears on the Sugary Serials site in the sidebar. Thought I’d use it as an excuse to draw one of my own characters for a change with these not-so-daily sketches.

Nora is a character Sara Turner and I have slated to appear in the next edition of our comic Equalizers of the Divide. She’s a character from the Northern provinces, so she has some magical abilities. Her main asset, however, is her fearlessness and street smarts. I had intended on playing her as a bit of a James Cagney character, a dirty little urchin who doesn’t take nothin’ from nobody nohow. And now that I think of it, that makes her a little bit like Toph, doesn’t it? Maybe that’s why I enjoyed the Avatar: The Last Airbender character so much!

Well, since the second issue of Equalizers is a ways off from being completed, I thought I’d share some actual sequentials with Nora in them. Back in 2005 Sara Turner and I completed a 5-page sample story that we were pitching around to a few comics publishers. This “pilot” story featured all of the main heroes we intended on using in the story (including a valiant steampunk cyborg named MacPhee), but only one of the villains.
