20130411, 10:58 – Sort of a more cogent version of the first scene of Earth. Dyluck and Alias, the Sabrosa, elements of the Sabrosa air wing, nuclear weapons… yeah, there’s a lot of parallels. Earth is to Alien the way Water is to Prometheus, I suppose – the same core structure fleshed out in two very different ways. It helps that Water manages to say twice as much as Earth in roughly half the length.
Air and Fire will be totally different animals. And at this point, probably a bit longer than Water, to boot.
I’m adding this to the CMS on Saturday morning and will publish it around midnight when I wake up, regardless of what I decide when it comes to socializing or work or sleep or whatever.
After months of nothing and a very slow start, two pages in two days! At this point it’s looking like another two pages will be done and posted at some point during the week of the 12th, probably mid-week or next weekend. Patience is more of a factor than anything else at this point – I’m trying to keep the weekends reserved for the comic, and this block of line art worked in nicely with commission work.
Now that the chapter is up and running the next challenge will be avoiding another asset development trainwreck – I still have to model some bits for the rest of the chapter, and need to balance the urge to run through the buffer against the fact that I need to figure out how to do this thing – pages and asset development – on a schedule.
