Hi guys, another day, another photoshoot. What is it with me? Well, I’m just in that kind of mood (or procrastinating because I should be studying for exams *shrug*). This post, I guess, functions as something like an announcement post, because you see, I’ve been working on the second generation of A Monte Vista Story and I’m ready to share the first pictures, yay! 😀
The second generation is different in that I’ve already started writing it – no, I haven’t even finished the first (as of this writing, I’m about to continue writing the final chapter) and I’m already writing the second. What can I say? I felt inspired and got so obsessed with my idea for it that I began right away. Currently I’ve written around 30 pages – it’s crazy.
So I’ve also started working on the looks of the characters and that’s what we’re all going to have a look at today! Namely, I’m going to show you Carlo and Vittoria’s kids and Marta. They’re all grown up and I’ve written a little description.
Marta is as much one of the Mancini kids as Giuliano and Regina – even though she’s kept her last name as a tribute to her biological dad. Despite a difficult upbringing, she’s maintained a positive attitude. She has a talent for telling stories and is very loyal to her adopted family.
She’s decided to leave the Mancini ‘family business’ though, as she feels like she’s had enough of crime after her turbulent childhood. She’s decided to work as a private detective and in her work, she makes good use of her contacts in the underworld – she may not be a criminal, but why waste good resources?
Giuliano is the elder of the biological Mancini siblings. As a boy, he was always quiet, thoughtful, and calm, as opposed to his wilder sister. She was always the one who made wild plans, and Giulio dutifully followed her schemes. He’s become a little more assertive since, but remains a more calming presence than either of his sisters.
Like Marta, he’s decided a life of crime isn’t for him. He went to university, enjoyed it immensely, and afterwards starting working as an accountant – much to his sister’s chagrin. He has a girlfriend, Flora, whose son he considers his own.
Regina Mancini is the youngest and smallest of the siblings, but the loudest. She has a strong temper and getting her angry is usually a bad idea – that said, she’s also a cheerful young woman, who loves good food and white wine. Of the two biological siblings, she’s the one who’s most like Carlo, and she considers her dad her best friend.
Gina is a daddy’s girl in more than one way – after finishing university and finding it intolerably dull, she went back home to lead the gang with her dad. He’s training her to become his successor and she’s showing a lot of talent for it.
So, I’m extremely excited to be writing about these three. The second generation will be Regina’s – heir votes just aren’t my thing, and I’ve always wanted a girl to take over. There’ll be more on these guys – and some new characters – as we get closer to gen 2. I hope you enjoyed this little sneaky peek, as I enjoyed creating it.
A little note that I might not find much time to read and comment this weekend as I’m away for Comic Con Copenhagen, so I’ll see you when I’m back and have some time 🙂
Until next time – cheers!
