The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 144
Chapter 144 . Newcomer Cartoonist
In the editorial department of “Monthly Youth Frontline”, Li Ruoxuan took a sip of coffee from the mug and looked at the computer screen.
This is the list of new serials in June. In addition to two works by authors who won the newcomer award for their debut earlier, there is also a slightly special new work.
“Bloodborne: The Curse”, this is a customized comics from Phantom Animation. Most of these comics are a certain animation. The comic version of the game is serialized as the work is released. Some hastily ended, and some are directly eunuchs. , Most do not die well.
Li Ruoxuan does not know the fate of this comic, but she knows that this comic will definitely not be like other adapted comics.
Because its original work is Holofer, the designer from the toy bag company who designed the “Unknown Nightmare” series of cult models.
The painter was Da Ou, a little-known cartoonist.
It’s not well-known. In fact, Daou originally had a serialization called “Lucky Superman Asang”. It was a funny superhero anime, but in poor condition, he was quickly cut down. Later, Daou was in Li Ruoxuan. With his support, he created several new storytellings, but in the end he failed to pass the review of the serialization conference. Several of the cartoonists who had been cut down with his debut have given up their creations and changed their careers with peace of mind, but he did not stop there, but continued. Accumulate experience as an assistant.
Finally, when Xu Rui found Li Ruoxuan and said that he wanted to create an adapted comic and he needed Li Ruoxuan to provide a good painter, Daou was recommended to the phantom movie.
After Li Ruoxuan confirmed the form, she picked up the document bag with the manuscript next to it. This is the manuscript that has just been sent, the first chapter of “Bloodborne: The Curse”.
She opened the file bag, and a scent of ink wafted. The first page of the comic was very bold, similar to a promotional poster. Under a cold moonlight, a man in a long windbreaker was holding a musket and a sawing axe, and his back turned to the picture.
Moving on, you can see the protagonist waking up in an abandoned clinic, surrounded by dilapidated scenes. He heard some sounds and went down the stairs to see a werewolf with hairy all over!
Just when the protagonist was going to tear the werewolf by hand or was saved by the mysterious power according to the routine, he was torn by the werewolf in this way!
After a small black screen, the unarmed protagonist wakes up and finds himself outside a dilapidated building. The world looks distorted and weird, shrouded in a mist in the distance, exuding a strange and dangerous aura.
Outside the building is a lifeless doll, dressed in a red and black dress, exquisite but cold.
The protagonist pushed open the door of the building and saw that there was a person inside besides a mess of tables and chairs.
A person in a wheelchair.
He calls himself German and tells the protagonist that this is the hunter’s dream. Through this dream, he can travel between here and Yanan Village. He needs to find the secret that makes the whole village crazy.
The plot of the first chapter is very brief, and finally freezes when the protagonist obtains a cane as a weapon from the hunter’s dream and slays the werewolf downstairs with difficulty.
Teacher Da Ou’s paintings are very exquisite. Although it is a black and white manuscript, it reveals a texture similar to an oil painting. Li Ruoxuan has always felt that Da Ou’s painting skills are very good before, but the creativity of the story is very poor, which eventually leads to a cut.
But this time is different. Daou is only responsible for the painting part, and he can spend all his energy on the composition and drawing, making the completion of every page of this comic amazing.
For example, the scene where the protagonist wakes up at the beginning, the cobwebs in the corner, the poured cup, and the messy book pages. All the details are clear and the whole picture has a strong impact.
Another example is the Hunter’s Dream. This weird place is full of distortions, weird, and indescribable, but the exquisite puppet has a hint of extraordinary and inaccessible, which makes a deep impression.
Holofer’s script did not take an unusual path from the beginning. Although the background and characters are more like elegant Europe, the whole story seems to reveal a sense of madness, especially in the corners of every page. The clear whispers make people feel uncomfortable.
Obviously, the first chapter has no special horror monsters or plots except the werewolf, but it just makes people feel uncomfortable. The strong unknown and uneasy condenses into fear, which permeates every page.
To be honest, this atmosphere is very different from other comics in “Monthly Youth Frontline”. You must know that even though it is a youth-oriented magazine, most of the “Monthly Youth Frontline” works are passionate works of Acura’s friendship and hard work, even “Soul Eater” is only slightly off.
But “Bloodborne: The Curse” was completely different. At that time, it took Li Ruoxuan a lot of time to convince the editor-in-chief to agree to serialize it in the magazine. In the end, it was the reputation of the phantom animation and the quality of the storytelling that impressed him.
After checking the manuscript, Li Ruoxuan will hand it in and send it to the printing department.
She drank the coffee and washed the cup before returning to pick up the paper bag.
“It seems that I haven’t gone to magic games recently, so please stop by when I visit Teacher Shuhai this afternoon.”
Li Ruoxuan said to herself.
In the phantom animation, Li Ruoxuan took the afternoon tea and took the elevator to the second floor.
It’s still busy here. The production of an animated movie and a July animation has left the original paintings with no free time. The tense atmosphere surrounds the office. Maybe only when Li Ruoxuan comes, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief.
But looking around, Li Ruoxuan did not find Xu Rui.
“Xu Rui, he is on the third floor next door.”
Yi Qianqian sipped the black tea and said to Li Ruoxuan who was looking around.
“Ah, yes, I’ll go around, thank you, Qian Qian.”
Li Ruoxuan nodded, put a piece of strawberry cake to Yi Qianqian’s table, and went to the Hatsune Video Network next door.
Climbing up to the third floor, she saw Xu Rui who was fiddling with something in the pantry beside her at a glance.
After walking over, Li Ruoxuan saw Xu Rui debugging in front of a camera shelf, next to several laptops.
“what are you doing?”
Li Ruoxuan asked, Xu Rui turned around, saw Li Ruoxuan, and looked at her camera.
“You came right in time.”
He let Li Ruoxuan sit on the opposite chair, then pressed the switch of the camera, and then picked up the laptop to type on the keyboard. After a while, he nodded with satisfaction.
“What are you doing?”
Li Ruoxuan is still not used to facing the camera , sitting somewhat restrained, and wondering what Xu Rui is up to, so she raised her head and asked.
“Look at it.”
Xu Rui handed over one of the laptops. There was an open web page on it, which looked like a page from Chuyin Video Network, but it was different.
On the video page, it was Li Ruoxuan who was sitting on the chair with great tension. She still maintained the previous actions. Then, one hand passed the notebook over, and Li Ruoxuan in the video also turned her gaze to the screen.
Li Ruoxuan was a little surprised, and hurriedly looked up at the camera. After a while on the screen, she also raised her head and looked outside the screen.
Undoubtedly, this video was taken by the camera with a slight delay.
“This is a live video?”
Li Ruoxuan tilted her head and didn’t quite understand.
