    Hi, a dark elf approaching ;)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Larissa Redeker, Mar 4, 2014.

    Hi

    My name's Larissa, and I'm an artist, self-employed. I like to make plushies, drawings, and write books.

    I have two short stories published, and now I'm working on a novel. Well, not exactly a novel, it's an illustrated movie script.

    And why a dark elf? Because the elves are the main chars of my new book, a mix of fantasy and sci-fi :)

    (My native language is Portuguese, so you'll find some mistakes in my texts in English)

    Hi, welcome.

    Plushies? Do you sell them somewhere?

    Thanxs, people :)

    I'm selling them in Brazil for now, but I sell the patterns on Etsy (and maybe I put the finished pieces to sell there too).

    I have some photos of them in my DeviantArt: http://dragaodepapel.deviantart.com/

    And, I want to say that this forum is amazing! Why I don't found it before?

    I have a lot of questions, and I'm reading the topics to find the answers. Some I found :)

    I was attended a writers' workshop for over 10 years in my city, and other online workshops for a long time (all of them for brazilian authors), and the only thing that I have learned is that my writing isn't poetic and is too much "american". Yes, I never understood what make a writing "american". For me sci-fi and fantasy (my favorite genres) are what they are, no matter the nationality of the author.

    Illustrated movie script? I've never heard of that before. Is it a movie script with storyboard? Or a graphic novel?

    I started it with the same structure of a script, with a drawing in each page, like a storyboard. But now I changed it, it's now a novel with illustrations. I tried to make a graphic novel, but I'm not a good artist for it :)

    Thaks, @Wreybies :) (I've readed the rules)

    I would recommend networking and finding a good artist. Perhaps on deviantart or some other site.

    I tried it. No money, no deal. I can draw, but a graphic novel is too much for me.

    I will make this book only for pleasure, nothing more. Maybe I put some samples of the drawings / design of the pages when I have more posts here (and make critiques) :)
