Toby Skybuckle: Teaser Sujet



"I, the Skybuckle,
promise to improve,
as from tomorrow.
"
TOBY SKYBUCKLE, adventurer

"A likely story,
snotty brat!
"
HAROLD, dragon

"Listen to them.
Children of the night.
What music they make.
"
DRACULA, monster

TOBY SKYBUCKLE©, Adventurer by Mistake - Book I, "The Fall". Btw, guess where the colours for this teaser come from...




I took those shots somewhere between Milano and Torino out in the country, last week. Splendid colours, no?

Francesco! :) Grazie!

Jake, that means a lot to me, coming from you. Thank you very much...

Leandro said...

Florian! Great work, as always!

This is a children's book, not a comic, right? Sorry, I'm new ;)

Jon Hart said...

Oh Happy new year to you Florian. This teaser got me excited for something, heh just feel epic and dark.

Can't wait to read more about Toby Skybuckle.

flaviano said...

wow, awesome cover, great class!
Soleil can add now a golden piece to his list already full of fantastic comics.
great choice!

Bryst said...

Soleil editions? xD It's looks great =)

Junaid said...

Looking very good! It's fun to see how you draw inspiration from photographs

Queen Mob said...

I am so curious to see the end product...
Will it be printed in English or German?

Jampix said...

This looks absolutely wunderbar! Where will we be able to buy the book? best, JP :)

Sharp Brothers said...

I wonder since you are doing this through Soleil it means Marvel may release a US version? I believe Marvel stills has their deal in place. If not I guess it just means a hefty order to Amazon.fr and i can at least enjoy the pictures.

Florian Satzinger said...

Jampix, Sharp B., ideed, there is that Marvel deal but I'm not absolutely sure, I admit, but I'll ask the editor...

Queen, in French and English, certainly...

Junaid, Bryst :) Thanks!

Flaviano, big thanks, there is still a lot to be done... :)

Jon, thank you!!

Leandro, Toby Skybuckle will be not a children's book, but a mixed bag of an illustrated book and a graphic novel.

brian said...

Wow! Cannot wait to get this!

Do you have any other books out? I really need some of your work sitting next to my drawing table.

Draw Monkey said...

I'll be sure to look out for your book, be it a children's book or comic.

And thank you for posting your colour palettes. It's interesting to see other artist's colour choices. Very inspiring.

Cheers.

Davide said...

Ti hanno già fatto la domanda, ma le te la rifaccio per l'impazienza: a quando l'uscita?

PS: I love your work...

numa said...

This is great! Can't wait to see the rest!
