A fool and his money are soon partied. Henrik N June 5, 2023 at 6:50 am 4 months ago I love the 3-dimensional concept you have regarding the ship and the characters moving round in it. It is really as you have a 3D-plan somewhere you use for the continuity through the whole storytelling. It brings a metareality to your comic that is fascinating. RobNobody June 5, 2023 at 12:57 pm 4 months ago I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that Christopher literally *does* have 3-D plans he uses for the settings. TB June 5, 2023 at 1:02 pm 4 months ago He does. I believe he painstakingly hand-traces them to get a uniform drawing style with the characters. I recognize this balcony from a number of other scenes, notably the “skeet shooting” one a while back. rwstyles June 6, 2023 at 10:55 am 4 months ago Many authors have extensive information that may never be released to the public. It helps enforce continuity. Christopher Baldwin June 5, 2023 at 1:13 pm 4 months ago Ha! Yeah, Rob and TB are correct, I do. But yes, I do it because (I’d like to think) it helps make people feel they are more immersed in the world (plus it looks cool) tlhonmey June 6, 2023 at 12:39 pm 4 months ago In this day and age of cheap 3d printing, ship blueprints and models could be turned into additional merch with relative ease. 😉 As long as they’re coherent anyway. TB June 6, 2023 at 10:07 pm 4 months ago I use 3D modeling in my art too. But all it takes is looking at something like Windsor McKay’s hand-drawn work to put things into perspective. Hans June 5, 2023 at 11:18 am 4 months ago Speaking of temptation. Let me ask, why would Symbiont suddenly like to change from symbiosis to antibiosis? Pete Rogan June 5, 2023 at 9:05 pm 4 months ago “The haft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle’s own plumes. We often give our enemies the means of our own destruction.” ? Aesop I can’t believe the symbiont nearly gave away the show there. It could have kept a lot of poor suckers from getting parasited. I don’t take Tesfay’s example of a happy ending as a universal here. I suppose now somebody else is going to have to learn how to turn the tables on a Silwellyian symbiont. I don’t care how ‘good’ they’re supposed to be. It talked its way into Tesfay’s life and for most of its ‘stay’ it’s been a pain in the fundament. SYMBIONT! SYMBIONT! SYMBIONT! Say ‘no’ to talking parasites. tlhonmey June 6, 2023 at 1:09 pm 4 months ago Given that he is now enormously rich and arguably powerful compared to the beginning of the story, bonus points if the symbiont was about to launch into a description of their first few conversations. 😉 Good thing he decided he didn’t want to know, I’m not sure if any artist could cram enough angst into his expression when he found out… Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
