097 - sequential pages

these are the outlines for the 5-page comic based around that set of steampunk characters i posted before. i'm going to colour these before the end of the semester, but i finished inking them all tonight and decided to post them now. i'll post the finishes later, along with some more stuff from my sequential class.

096 - character design

the start of my last story idea for first semester of senior project. this story has been in the works for ages, and probably has some of my favourite characters that i've designed in it (it probably isn't hard to see who i accidentally end up drawing the most).

this story is heavily inspired by the kurt vonnegut quote "true terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country." it takes place in an apocalyptic alternate reality where one day, everyone over the age of 21 is killed. the country ends up being run like a high school popularity contest, where anyone who is "different" or "weird" or "not normal" is ostracized and often persecuted. cooper and his small gang try very hard to take these leaders down.

095 - character design

so here's some more character design, except this time it's for my sequential art class. our assignment is to design a marketable character and make a 5-page comic about it. i'm still working on the comic, but here are the designs.

my story is about the crew of a steampunk-inspired airship delivery service. the introductory comic is told from the perspective of taciturn, the betta fish character who happens to be based on my own betta fish. and sebastian is based on my childhood dog that passed away a few years ago. his character is recently married, and i'm very tempted to name his wife belle, just to be a dork.

after i graduate i plan on starting a webcomic, and it's entirely possible that this is the idea i end up going with for it.

094 - character design

third out of four sets of character designs for my senior project this semester. this is one of my newest story ideas. it's another post-apocalyptic one because i have a lot of fun thinking up those.

the last story i'm working on is cooper's story, and then next semester i'll start work on a comic version of one of these four ideas.
