So far, it’s going great, and I’m getting very excited for the art to get rolling! Liz and I have written out the story for Chapters 7, 8, and 9. We’ve collaborated and finished the Chapter 7 script, with the exception of some mild fine-tuning. I’m hoping to get started on layouts in the next week or so, and get thumbnails put together. The story for this book is shaping up to be a blast - Bast, virtually a background character in Volume 2, finally comes into play. The chemistry of the main characters begins to progress, and the plot elements begin to move forward and broaden… Volume 1 was the introductory book, Volume 2 tied the characters together- but Volume 3 is really going to start moving the plotlines forward, begin unraveling a few things, and establish a broad base for the saga to build from. I’m having that annoying urge where I want to start spewing about all the story features that are exciting me, but then I would be spoiling the story…
I do have some concept art to share, though. In Volume 3 we get a glimpse of some other facets to Anduruna - the criminal street-clans that infest certain areas of the districts. Now, Mace & company aren’t exactly law abiding cherubs - But this group isn’t on the same endearing level of misbehavior. Think more along the lines of organized extortion, prostitution, substance abuse, etc… I'd like to think we'll be the first people to ever create a book that has a sea-horse whore. It's good to forge new ground.
That’s about it at present. I’ll be working on layouts for Ch.7 next, in between doing commissions and ordering more Volume 1&2 print runs. I’ve had commissions unavailable for so long, I really need to get moving for all the people that’ve been waiting… If you’re reading this currently, and you want a commission, keep an eye out on the website! They’re either already open, or will open in a matter of days.
