SYLVANNA - Pre-launch info

Postby Ian Flynn » Fri Jan 04, 2013 11:38 pm

Dawn Best should be no stranger to Sonic fans; she was one of the most popular and prolific fan artists in the early days of the online community, and one of the first fans turned pro.

And if you're here, you ought to know who I am. :roll:

So what happens when you take my writing and combine it with Dawn's art and vision? You get Sylvanna.

What is "Sylvanna?"
"Sylvanna" is an online comic created by Dawn Best. It's a fantasy epic about a group of bats tasked with finding the shards of a shattered god. In their way are the violent hawks and their recently freed god, Cyngro. In short: it's more colorful, talking animal-people going on grand adventures.

What's the release schedule?
That's the thing - it's not out yet. And it's going to hinge a lot on you. Dawn is launching the website (and I this forum) to drum up interest in preparation for the impending Kickstarter. We're hoping folks will fully fund the first book. Depending on how well that goes, we'll move on to Book Two, Three, and so on.

I want more info!
Links! Links galore! (or pending, at least)

SylvannaOnline.com - the main website where you'll find the newest info and features
Sylvanna Forum - you... really don't need to click this link
Facebook Page - for more news and fan-following (link pending)
Kickstarter - the fundraiser page. Help us make this happen! (link pending)

Any relation to that IanPotto guy who wrote a famous fan comic about a blue hedgehog, who's name escapes me at the moment, who disappeared about 8 years ago? ;)

As I've said on Dawns dA journal, I plan to help kickstart this.

I mean, it's got two of my favorite people in the business working on it so what's not to like? :)

Regardless, looking forward to it!

You know, I was gonna guess the same thing???

But seriously guys, thanks for the support. I look forward to being around these parts a little bit more to chat with you about the project, along with Ian, and maybe answer some questions and post some pictures and junk for you guys :) Hope you'll enjoy what we have to offer in the coming weeks! Suffice to say, we have big plans for this series that are actually several years in the making. :O

Is the comic original, or has it been adapted from a previous franshise? (kinda similar on how New Crusaders was adapted)

Completely original. It's Dawn's brainchild which I get to play around with some.

When did you come up with the story concept, and were bats and hawks the first ideas that came to mind for character concepts?

Sylvanna was conceived, I'd say, in the 90's when I was but a young'n. I was crazy about the Sonic games and I wanted, one day, to make my own video game. Remember the style of the animation in Sonic CD? I was at first, very influenced by that and all my characters were simplified anime-style creatures. I wanted to do different animals but I found myself sticking with bats because nobody had done a video game with a bat protagonist (though, I guess there was Aero the Acrobat, if you remember that). I didn't have the villains figured out then because to a kid of 11 or 12, villains were something the video game company would figure out for you... or something. ;) The hawks came a little later, as I thought they were fun to draw.

BAAAAATS! I'm so interested! I've been a fan of a particular book series (which I have yet to finish) that featured bats as well. And it's BATS so yes I'm so excited for this.

Been looking forward to seeing this come to life for a long time! :D

I've already mentioned on DA that I plan to help donate towards the comic as well, and I'm trying to get the word out to all my friends (On DA and off) about this awesome new upcoming comic, and its kick-starter. Good luck on the Comic Ian and Chordsy! As I've said a million time before, I'm looking forward to it ;)
