W.i.t.c.h. Sovereigns - I01 Prologue 01 by YummingDoe4 W.i.t.c.h. Sovereigns - I01 Prologue 01 by YummingDoe4
Hooray! Black Butler Bard Icon  It's Sunday the 15th everyone!!!
And that means: Here's the very first comic page with panels'n all the fancy comicy stuff!!! Hooraaaaay!!!
(Mind you, it's the PROLOGUE. Irma will get her promised entry soon, don't worry!)

Welcome to my new W.i.t.c.h. story.
It's the prologue so some introduction and entry stuff was required. Plus it's simply classy to start the comic with Kandrakar! Who am I to break tradition?!

Some of you might remember the pictures of the last big panel. (uploaded the lineart of this last year) This page was actually the first thing I ever did for this project. I just decided that I didn't want to start the comic with it. So I went through a lot of trouble finding the right cover and then I thought I need a retro since some fans don't know the last comics and... well long story short: It's finally here for you guys to read!

**** For the hardcore fans: Can you name all the people shown in panel 4? :darkness ****


Prev: W.i.t.c.h. Sovereigns - Issue01 Poster
Next: WITCH Sovereigns - I01 Prologue 02

(check the website for updates on the progress)
(I'm always happy for feedback, impressions or questions)

This is a fan comic. All content from the original comic series "W.i.t.c.h." is owned by Disney

Yeah in my country they at least published them until issue 129. I read the last 9 issues online years later in English. It's really sad they didn't localize the last issues because they make such a nice "ending" of the comic series! Far better than just stopping midway. Then again, if they hadn't stopped where they did in Germany, I probably wouldn't be making this comic now XD

Yes, I'm using the colour scheme from one of the issues where I liked it most! You have a good eye! I'm happy it looks authentic!
I hope I can later print the finished issue and put it right next to the originals and say: I made this! onion yep

It's about the WITCH gang again :D Just because I like them so much haha! I just don't want their adventures to be over yet and if Disney isn't going to do anything, then I want to give it a try. That's kind of my ambition.
And it was my first real comic, too! I did read Minnie Mouse and Wendy magazines and such but the comics in there were more like short stories so W.i.t.c.h. was the first real comic I ever read and actually bought.

Disney has least to do what Italians comic done.
Just because it was published in Disney Italy.
There quality and style differences ect. :)

Any comic related works done by french or italic is kinda amazing. . .
This is why witch still stands as one of italian base concept for magical girls in there. XD though inspirations were prolong from japan. And korea.

It's true that the comic is amazing due to the authors and artists from Italy (and Denmark, yey!) but Disney is still the owner and without Disney the comic may not have reached us and become so big and loved by so many (because they said: We're using money to spread this thing all across the globe and pay some awesome people to work on the comic). So I still give Disney a bit of credit ;)

I'm not that fond of most French comics. Their style is really cool but there's something about the topics and mood in them that I don't like so much. Italian comics I personally can relate to far better. Both countries have amazing comic artists though and a big comic industry. It's sad that the German comic industry is so tiny...

I liked witch when I was a teenager, but I didn't read the whole series:( I stopped buying these comics when I had a lot of to learn at school. I don't really know how the story ends ;) I saw an animated series, but I dunno if it was the whole story ;) I must check your gallery in my free time, because your style is like the original :) and I always loved the style of this comic :)

I did a small summary for people who didn't read the comics to the end. (There are quite a lot who didn't, so you're not alone!)
Here's the link: W.i.t.c.h. Sovereigns - Issue01 Retro

The cartoon did make a few changes in the story and ended story-wise earlier than the comics. But if I distinctly refer to something from the original comics, I'll add a small side note mentioning the issue where that something happened so people can follow up.

Riddle, Manipulated Elyon, Frost, Cedric, Ludmoore, Phobos, Nerissa, Luba, Ari, Yua, Faulkner, Karl & Tecla Ibsen, Ragorlang, Rumor, Dark Mother, Takeda, White Queen, (I don't know if it is supposed to be Dark Mother's roots or one of the Ladies, probally Lady Kimikal), Nihila, (Last one behind her looks like Cromo of the Runiks but I may be wrong).

:iconyummingdoe4:
YummingDoe4 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Almost!
The one next to Tecla is Erin, not Karl.
I'm not sure who Rumor is? But I guess you're talking about the hooded figure. In that case it's actually a hooded figure from the Runics or rather their Council.
You were right about the roots. The Ladies are all together in one on the top right between Takeda and Nihila. They fuse together in their last appearance but it's pretty hard to recognise here since they're so tiny...
The last on the upper right is Orristur. He only appeared in one issue and was pretty much beaten instantly, but still, he's technically a villain.

COokie  Here's a cookie for your efforts! You almost got them all, very good!

Thanks so much for your appreciation. Though I don't see Erin as a villian. She may did much harm to the girls by her emotion powers (which may do qualify her as villian) but she only did it because she was tricked by Tecla and also desperate in believing her due to the loss of her brother Kader.
Dark Mother had her servants that were hooded as well and I have recalled one of them by that name, maybe he has a different name in the other versions but this is how he was called in the German version.
By the end of the Takeda arc, the comic release went irregular so barely the half of the latter issues was published in Germany. With the effect that the storyline was literally chopped apart. Therefore, as I recall, only two of W.I.T.C.H. vs. Ladies adventures were published. I don't remember the third one, at least.
As for Orristur, I totally forgot him likely because, as you said, he was easily defeated and never mentioned ever again nor had he any effect to the farther progression.

YummingDoe4 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes it was a difficult decision if I should count her as a villain or not. At the start I made a definition for myself what a villain is to me and then selected the characters here after that definition.
Aaaah! I think his name is "Romur" not "Rumor". It's the little guy and yes, he always wore a hood, that's true. The hooded figure was a bit of a stretch anyway, I guess nobody would recognise him as a Runic. But the 5 guys from the runic team didn't fit into the picture anymore haha and by the definition I did they were more like... henchmen so I had to draw their supiriors which were never really shown... Meh
The Lady thing is true. I only read the third one online, myself.

Yep. That one kind of hurt to put him in here as a "villain" since he was so pathetic... but again he filled the definition soo... had to pick him Sweat Emoticon
My definition surely wasn't the best for "villains" haha!

Anyway thanks so much for your comments and this discussion! It's cool to hear other people's thoughts on the matter! Yay

No problem! How long did this take you to draw and color? And what kind of brush did you use for the cloud colors?
Reply
:iconyummingdoe4:
YummingDoe4 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hm... difficult to say. I made the lineart way back last year and then sat down to colour it this year. Sometimes I worked on it for an hour, other times the entire day.
I guess... around 3 days for the sketch and concept, lineart + 1-2 Days for basic colouring, another 2 days for shading plus maybe 2 days for the idea for the panels and such.
So if we add that up maybe something around 8-10 days for everything?
I used a standard round brush from Photoshop with opacity at around 15-20% and added a diffuser filter at the end to blur the edges slightly.

:iconyummingdoe4:
YummingDoe4 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hihi thanks! And no worries, I don't mind questions at all!
The design for Kandrakar is strongly based on the Disney design of the fortress after Yan Lin becomes oracle. That happens rather late in the comic series (#86). Problem was though, that after that moment the fortress isn't shown from the outside very often, or the views are always angled in a strange way so it's hard to piece together what it might look like when you were to look at it straight on.
Sooo... I used my imagination to pimp it a little bit XD

Will you give me a cookie for naming everyone in Panel 4? XD
Okay in order from left to right:
Ari
Elyon
Frost
Cedric
Ludmoore
Phobos
Nerissa (young)
Nerissa (old)
Ari
Yua
Faulkner
Ragorlang
Erin
Tecla
Dark Mother
Arkaam the White Queen
not sure about the guy next to her but I think he was her henchman
Nihila
one of the Runics (?)

Also, typo error on panel with Yan Lin: "They have fought." not "They have faught." :>

So far, you're doing a good job replicating the style of the comic. Love the details on the clouds and on Kandrakar itself.
Reply
:iconyummingdoe4:
YummingDoe4 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha! I thought about offering one but giving a cookie is a little difficult via the internet XD

 Almost! :cookie:
The first on the left isn't Ari (he's at the bottom left how you also spotted), it's Riddle. Some dude with psyhic powers who ends up kidnapping Will's astral drop to run some tests on her and prove the magical abilities. I thought about adding Sylla but he's just working for others, so I went for Riddle who proactively went against WITCH. I almost forgot him, hadn't I deliberately looked for all the villains available plus henchmen...
The person you think is Nerissa in her old version is actually Luba.
You were right with the henchman of the White Queen. He's called Dr. Takeda.
Then the hooded figure is symbolising the organisation that's ordering the RUNICs around. There was one issue where they were shown and always had a black cloak on.
At the top right there's also the three ladies (crash, giga and kamikal) who fused to one creature with three heads. Pretty hard to notice, I know, since the pic is so small.
And then finally we have Orristur.

Ah! You're right. I'll fix that, thanks a lot!

Thank you!!

Awww :heart:

Oops, forgot to correct that. XD Yeah, it was Riddle, my bad.
Oh, you put Luba there. I'm only well-acquainted with Luba as Orube's master so I forgot about her role as an antagonist. ^_^' I always, always, always forget about the details of 2nd saga, even if it brought up the most number of questions people usually have about Kandrakar.
That was Takeda? XD I forgot what he looked like. XD
As for the other villains... I no longer know hahahaha XD (Frankly, I'm not a fan of the later WITCH issues, so I'm curious where you're taking this.)

You're welcome! :">
Reply
:iconyummingdoe4:
YummingDoe4 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hahaha! I wasn't sure if I should count Luba as a villain or not but in the end, she did actively sabotage WITCH once and worked against them in the council (even if it didn't amount to much) so I put her in there, at least in a small version. I do like her a lot better as Orube's master, though.
Yeah I'm not a super big fan of the later issues either. There are a few good issues in-between or at least good ideas but many other things that I didn't like very much. Still I respect them for being there and made it my challenge to work with everything that happened in the main comics XD
And some things like the whole Sovereign title have a lot of potential!
Tihi yeah well I hope I can show the next page soon... buuuuuut I still have to draw it so... Onion Boy 6

Yeah. Another fan changed my mind about simply being hostile towards the later issues, and helped me see that there's potential in using elements (HAH) of those stories. So right now, I'm thinking I'll take what elements I can use (HAH, again) and run away with it. XD

Good luck! :>
