I know, I know, it's november 2nd... but believe me, a work in the uni turns complicated and got many of my time to can finish this strip at time.
Anyway has been fantastic to work in that and see how works a canids strip in full page and colour. The format will continue being horizontal strips, like in the newspapers strips, but for special strips, like other author do, this format and colour works really well.
In the colour I preffered to use a plain and humid tone, typical of watercolours, without many details or without filling all the whites. I think that gives at the comic a fresh, nice appearance.
Well, here you have the Halloween special strip:
Our four canids friends meet in the Halloween night to have fun, and change oppinions about their disguises.
Enjoy it, and I hope you have had a great but scary Halloween!
Canids return after a long time! Why this delay? You'd probably ask. Well, the fact it's that lately I've been quite busy, because thanks to an Erasmus scholardship, I've moved to England (the country of "Canids"!), and the fact of to prepare all for my travel and new life here has had me quite busy. But here return, for all you, more adventures of those 4 nice doggies.
In our strip for today, we can see a thing that happened last summer. Bobby arrived wanting to play, but Rick wanted to follow with his book...
Today, celebrating my birthday, some friends give me this present:
Obviously, is not a real Bobby plush doll, but he's so similar, that they decided to label it (a great work of my friend Ester) creating the ilusion of a possible merchandising of Canids. Maybe someday...
Dave always gets all he wants. He got Rick "happy" and saved the party. In the other hand, Bobby can't drink alcohol because is too much young, so he only drinks sodas... sodas aren't bad for him... or yes?
The party is ready! Dave did a party in Rick's house, without the approval of the host, and all point that Dave invited at all the dogs in the village... or not? Time to meet the annoying but lovely Bobby.
In a little English village, four dogs of different breeds live together like they can, in spite of their different personalities. Here there are the four main characters, whose adventures and experiences will be showed in "Canids":
Rick: Rick is a grumpy and bad-tempered golden retriever who loves a quiet life without surprises. For his disgrace, that kind of life is impossible due to Dave's constant jokes and Bobby's hyperactivity who, for good or bad, loves Rick like if he was his older brother.
Bobby: This old English sheepdog is a huge and unquiet mountain of white and black hair, with the soul of a little pup, dispossed to play with all those incautious who come near to him. Hyperactive and not very brilliant, his innocence makes him an easy victim of all those who, with a bit of inteligence, want to lost his drooling company.
Dave: Don't allow that the cute looking of this Dachshund deceive you! Dave is a little devil who is always thinking in any prank to annoy Rick or to make a party in where can show his outgoing personality.
Edmund: The oldest in the group, Edmund is a cultived, refined and intelligent Basset Hound, and the only one who can put a bit of common sense in this group of so differents friends.
