Hi FanWings!

 

I'm so excited to have Tui and Mike here to tell you about working on the amazing first Wings of Fire graphic novel! The Dragonet Prophecy is out this week and if you haven't seen it yet, you're going to love it!

 

Make sure you stay to the end for a very special surprise....

 

To get things started, a question for both Tui and Mike:

 

Tui, what did you think when the idea of doing a graphic novel adaption came up? Mike, what were your thoughts when you were first approached with this idea?

 

FanWings, add your questions below!

Sarah E: Mike, what were your thoughts when you were first approached with this idea?

 

 

 

It was wild! I'd never thought I'd be approached to draw a book about teenage dragons, and I'll admit, I was a little intimidated at first. BUT, I also thought it would be so cool to draw this world and the characters, and I was super excited and ready to tackle it!

!!~REST OF SIGGY UNDER CONSTRUCTION~!!

 

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii everyone!  I'm so so so excited to be here chatting with you guys and Mike and Sarah!  I'll do my best with the questions -- my computer's moving a little slowly (and I think there might be a lot of you here!) -- but if I don't get to yours, I'm sorry and I still adore you!

 

Let me tackle Sarah's first (since I can cut and paste this answer in!):

 

Tui, what did you think when the idea of doing a graphic novel adaption came up?

 

I think my first thought was “oh my goodness, good luck to whoever has to draw all these dragons!”  Dragons are hard to draw!  I mean, at least for me; I know you guys draw amazing dragons all the time.  But sometimes a reader will ask me to sketch a dragon next to my signature as I’m signing a book and then they’ll look at the result and be like “...is it...a barracuda?” or “where’s its tail?” and then I have to nonchalantly slide the book back and add the tail like that was the plan all along.  ;)  

 

So I feel SO LUCKY that Scholastic found Mike, whose dragons look like actual dragons and also have these wonderful expressive faces!  I think it turned out even better than I could possibly have imagined when the idea first came up.  :)  And I'm so thrilled that it's out in the world now so you can all see it too!

ponydolphin57: How did you decide which scenes (from the book) to use in the graphic novel?

 

Luckily for me, I didn't have to choose - that was all taken care of in the script, before I started drawing it. It would've been real tough to decide which scenes stayed in, so I'm glad it wasn't my job!

Hey Mike, thank you for making the wings big enough that the dragons could reasonably fly on them. Almost nobody ever gets that right, and it's super frustrating.

                          To Tui,

 

 

                    1. Did Burn have the wing(s) of a dragon from Pantala in her?collection?

 

                  2. Is the new IceWing queen an animus?

                     3. Will Queen Moorhen ever be in the books, or will she forever be a only mentioned character?

                           4. Will Glory create a rule that the RainWings have to keep track of their eggs? I think she should...

 

             That is all for now.

                                  Sincerely,

I would have come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together- knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting.

fogdragon65: Who was your favorite dragon to illustrate? 

 

Glory and Queen Scarlet were super fun to draw, I got to play with their personalities a lot and I like their details. The most fun was Morrowseer, though - he's so intimidating, I loved having him take over a scene with his size and attitude!

Was it hard to draw the wings or faces? And was it difficult to play with the sizes of the dragons?

Hello! One question I have, what is the size scale for dragons of different ages? We know that dragons get bigger as they age, but how much bigger each year? How much bigger is a 20 year old dragon to a 7 year old one or how big is a 60 year old dragon to a 20 or even 40 year old one? Is there some sort of scale for every year? Could you maybe give us a range or an average on dragon sizes depending on how old they are, especially since they can live for a while? It would be greatly appreciated if either one of you could answer this or at least give us a general idea!

I haven't read the books, but I'm going to ask my parents to buy me the graphic novel!

 

The colors and backgrounds (from what I've seen in the excerpt) are AWESOME. How did you feel about coloring these vivid characters and drawing the backgrounds?

Hee!  Um, right now?  ;)  Not off the top of my head, I couldn't -- I'd have to go back through all my notes and probably make up another 20 or so!  :)

 

doggriffin202: Umm, what is one of the new tribes in Pantala?!

 

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I would love to answer this but I can't yet!  However, I CAN tell you one thing:  there will be THREE new tribes introduced (more or less!) [mysterious cryptic face]

 

ponydolphin57: Who was your favorite dragon to draw/color/write about?

 

I love writing Peril because she says everything that pops into her head and because she's so much more inclined to set her problems on fire than I am!  But I love each of them for different reasons.  :)

 

dragonviolet155: Are you going to do the rest of the books as graphic novels?

 

I hope so -- we'll see!  We're definitely working on book 2 now!  :)

phoenixdragon1690: Hey Mike, thank you for making the wings big enough that the dragons could reasonably fly on them. Almost nobody ever gets that right, and it's super frustrating.

 

Thanks for saying that! I mean, everyone's got their own way of drawing these characters and I kind of think that's awesome - that you can interpret them so many ways. When I'm telling a story I try to think about the physics of a scene, and bigger wings made sense. Also, they look cool to me!

( I dont think my other questions went through, thanks a lot internet  ) 

 

Well 

 

How advanced are the scavengers in Phyrria? 

 

I would like to see some more MudWings/MudWing culture in the books, IceWing culture as well. Is it possible to see some of this? 

 

About how many dragons live in Phyrria? 

 

Are hybrids accepted as general members of the tribe? Does war bring possible discrimination against them? ( it seemed to be implied but Im not sure ) 

 

My brain is tired now.
