The Prince of Ponzan - Visual Development

The Prince of Ponzan is an ongoing project, a swashbuckling adventure story inspired by old pulpy Ruritanian Romance films like The Prisoner of Zenda (1937). I began sketching characters for this story when I was in highschool, it has gone through countless shifts in tone and design, boiling it down to a simpler and more universal story, whilst retaining the boyish and adventurous qualities that inspired it all those years ago.
The biggest development of this project came with my University film pitch 'The Prince of Ponzan', which although was never made, helped me introduce many of the ideas I now see as key to the project.
The story is still an ongoing project, currently in development as a comic book.
