question(s) for tui!!

 

- how much do scavengers understand about the dragon world? do they realize that they are also an intelligent species?

- can dragons fly or speak when they are born?

seawings28: Tui: Who/what were you most excited to see in the GN?

 

I was really excited to see Peril, who is such a big personality, and of course Clay, who is the heart of the book – so he has to be brave and befuddled and sweet and nervous and heartbroken and I wasn’t sure how it would be possible to convey all those things in one dragon face.  But Mike did it amazingly – I think especially when you consider that the novel has so much internal monologue and emotional stuff that Clay is going through in his head.  The fact that Mike was able to convey all of that in the art is incredible.

 

I was also very excited to see the settings, especially Queen Scarlet’s palace and arena.  I am actually not a very visual person myself, so when I describe a setting, I try to spend a lot of time on coming up with unique details that will make it easier for me to picture (and hope that if even *I* can picture it, then the reader will be able to as well).  I spent SO long imagining Scarlet’s arena/prison that I actually did have a pretty clear picture of it in my head, and Mike has captured it exactly as I imagined. 

 

cleverdragon 364: If there are going to be more graphic novels, what part of the books are (both of) you most excited to see put into picture form?

 

I can't wait to see what Mike does with the Summer Palace in book 2, because that’s another setting I spent a long time figuring out!  I hope I described it well enough in words for Mike to imagine, too – but I’m also sure that whatever he comes up with will be even more beautiful and make more physical sense than what’s in my head!

 

darkwind90: Was the great scorching after or before Darkstalker?   

 

Before

 

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

 

Yes!  :)

 

Is the new IceWing queen an animus?

 

No, they still don't have any animus dragons.

 

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

 

I think she should, too!

 

 

dragonbookworm366: Will we see more of winter's scavenger sanctuary?

 

I hope so!  I must admit, as delighted as he is about this idea, I'm not so sure the scavengers are going to be very pleased about it!


Will the original dragonets be in the third arc?

 

Yes, I'm hoping to bring everyone back in at least a little bit here and there -- I would miss Clay and Sunny and Glory and Tsunami and Starflight too much if they were gone completely!  Plus I like showing what they're up to and how they're still developing, even if it's just in the background.  :)

 

So many great questions -- you guys are awesome!  :)

butterflycat1708: How did you feel about coloring these vivid characters and drawing the backgrounds?

 

If you like the colors, you have Maarto Laiho to thank - Maarta's colors BLEW MY MIND when I got the preview pages in. They nailed the mood of every scene and made my art really sing! As far as the backgrounds - it's beyond fun to create entire worlds from your mind, and I was happy to have Joy Ang's amazing covers to use as a bit of a guide - although I'm also very happy that Scholastic allowed me to do my own interpretation! 

 

 

 

teamwhirlwind20: Mike, what was your favorite scene to draw? I loved the battles in Scarlets arena!!

 

Aw thanks! When I was brought on, I mentioned that I loved drawing action scenes and I was not let down by the script! My favorite scene to draw? That's tough - probably the bit where Clay goes through the underwater tunnel, I loved drawing all those little Clays, and then his resurfacing.

 

 

 

galedragon440: Mike - Do you have tips for drawing dragons? And Do you have tips for beginners wanting to make comics?

 

My own approach to drawing dragons is to try and get the personality of each character to show through - use body language, facial expressions. And use references of real things, like animals and even people! Try and capture a fun facial expression using only the features of a dragon - it's a real challenge! As far as tips for making comics? For me, comics are all about telling a story. Find the best way to get a story across using words and pictures, and discover a balance between them. Make it clear and readable, so that anyone who reads it will understand what's going on. And make a lot of comics! You'll only get better if you make a TON of them.

                              I think you draw the dragons so well. Sure I imagined Morrowseer a little less.. ugly... But that was even cooler than I could have thought. The armour- even better!

ravenarriving66: Are hybrids accepted as general members of the tribe? Does war bring possible discrimination against them?

 

I think it depends on the tribe (and who's queen at the time), and that's such an interesting question about war and discrimination...in some ways, yes, because certainly a hybrid who's part enemy tribe would be regarded suspiciously.  But I also think the war resulted in many more hybrids than there used to be, because of the tribes that were allied and how they were all spread out across the continent fighting.  And the school will probably lead to even more...I think there are lots of interesting potential stories there!

 

galedragon440: Tui- What tips would you give beginner writers starting on their book/story?

 

Oh goodness, so many...first I'd say, make sure you're having fun -- because when you get bored with your story, that's when the readers will get bored, too.  I like to start by thinking a lot about my characters, so I'd suggest figuring out as much about them as you can -- what their childhood was like, who their best friends are, what they dream of.  And if you get stuck, blow something up!  ;)  (hee!)

 

fogdragon65: @Tui Which dragon was your favorite to look at in the comic?

 

Awww, I love all of them...let me think...I would have to say I particularly love Mike's version of Starflight.  The cover of Book 4 is absolutely amazing, but I love how Mike captures young, anxious Starflight so, so well and makes his face so unique.  And Maarta (the colorist) did a wonderful job with Glory's shifting colors all the way through, but especially in the arena scenes, so I love looking at those, too!

 

jadedragon13862: To Tui: We've tried to match the dragonets in each book series to the friends in My Little Pony. Do you notice any similarities between characters in the two stories?

 

That is so funny -- I've never thought about it before; we only started watching My Little Pony about a year ago (and I do love it!).  I think there might be a tiiiiiiiiiiiiiny bit of similarity between me and Pinkie Pie, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of my dragons (ok, Kinkajou!) have that kind of voice in particular!  ;)

 

sandsong42: how much do scavengers understand about the dragon world? do they realize that they are also an intelligent species?

 

I love this question!  Most scavengers do not -- they think of the dragons as basically giant flying sharks -- although they have more clues than the dragons do about the humans, since it would be hard to miss the giant palaces.  I think there's a range of opinions among the scavengers on this topic, much as there is among the dragons about whether humans are intelligent.  :)

ninjahero30: 1. How do you draw the dragon's body structures? Are they more human or reptilian? 

 

Definitely reptilian, although I referenced creatures from all over the animal kingdom to show body language, facial expression, and overall emotion. So there's a little dog in there, some cow, birds, anything I thought would make it diverse!

 

 

 

 

darkwind90: I think you draw the dragons so well. Sure I imagined Morrowseer a little less.. ugly... But that was even cooler than I could have thought. The armour- even better!

 

 

Haha! Fair enough. He's for sure seen some better days, although I hope I gave him a rugged handsomeness (very rugged). When I read the script, I knew I had to make him appear much older and more than a little machiavellian. And tough! He definitely had to appear to be almost invincible to the dragonets, so you get the power he holds over the Talons of Peace. Of course, Sunny wasn't intimidated one bit :)

 

 

galaxyprism56: Had you read Wings of Fure before Also, I'd just like to say that I really like how Peril has freckles and illustrating the novel? Also, I really like how all the characters wound up looking- especially Peril's freckles, they were SO ADORABLE- so thanks for investing your time into the novel!

 

I'd never read them until I was asked to draw the books - I hope that's okay, everyone! I can absolutely say I'm a fan now, though. And thanks  - I knew I wanted to make Peril kind of adorable, as a contrast to the incredible power she controls.

ninjahero30: 1. How did you develop so many characters that are so intricate and diverse and fit do perfectly into your storyline.

 

Aww, thank you -- I spend a lot of time thinking about them and taking notes on them!  I try to think about how I want them to change and how their childhood affected them and how to make them each heroic in a different way -- because I think everyone in real life can be heroic in their own way, too.

 

2. Did you ever think you'd be a best selling author? Was it your dream?

 

It was always my dream to be an author -- that's the part I imagined the most: getting to write and imagine stories every day, and holding my own real books in my hand.  That's the part that I focused on trying to make come true.  The bestselling part is more like a magical fantasy -- it still makes me feel so surprised and grateful -- especially since most of the time I'm just at home in my pyjamas, hanging out with my kids, who do not think of me as a glamorous celebrity -- they keep me very grounded!  ;)  

 

dawnfrost246: Is it possible that the Icewings still have animus dragons?

 

I'll say never say never -- I'd like to leave myself the option of changing my mind in the future!  But right now I think they do not, and since it's been so long since they had one, it's pretty unlikely.

fogdragon65: What plans do you have for the next comic? Are you looking forward to drawing Seawings?

 

I'm actually right in the middle of drawing the next book, and so far it is awesome (and action-packed!). I'm really enjoying playing with all the different kinds of Seawing - much like the fight between Gill and Tsunami in the first book, there are plenty of ways to draw dragons of a single tribe. Tui mentioned the Summer Palace, and I've designed something I hope she (and you!) will like.
