AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaannnnd we're done with Chapter 9! :faint:

Introducing Morticus' latest contraption! As a point of reference, here's the Mk. I: SSnPP - 02- 007 by 47ness


What can I say, I love vehicles! I love environments!! I'd make it all about that if I could. :XD:
TBH, I don't feel that crazed passion when it comes to characters? Sometimes it feels like my characters are just moving through a world where the vehicles and environments steal the show. Which, hurp durp, is probably a colossal disadvantage if I want to tell a novel-length story and get people emotionally invested in what happens. =v=;;;

Anyway, thanks again for reading along! ♥ Chapter 9 (and Issue Six, if you count the scenes with Spurs McMurray and Doc Governess) has definitely been the most challenging one yet- it didn't take quite as long as previous chapters, but I think I stuffed this one with waaay more artwork per page. XD;

woaaaaaaaa.... with those rays on the top, it would look really well in a Frankenstein 1930s movie! ;) Oh, how I love see retro-technology in black and white ;)

*fantastical epic ending to a chapter alert* Aagh man I said I'd be interested to see how you'll do the lightning thing for the storm and boy am I satisfied with what you got here :la:
aagh man what I'd kill to be able to draw backgrounds and mecha stuff like you do :< it's hardly noticeable that you're struggling with the characters in comparison to someone who has the opposite problem, which is usually really obvious (characters float in an empty void of doom).

I dunno. I just think my characters are really bland and forgettable because I don't know wth to do with them 80% of the time. I could have them fight to the death, Battle Royale style...

(At least the void of doom from which they float upon is very sublime and dreamline~) ♥

aw I don't think that's the case at all! They've got a great world to belong to and to explore in, and that helps them as characters.

G'aww, thanks for calling it a "piece", actually! ;v; IT KINDA IS THAT even if it's categorized as a page. :B

Now, I still need to make some additional pieces to pad out the remaining pages in the book; none of that blank page crap for me. XD;

Such an awesome piece! The detail is great, but what truly catches my eye is how all the elements serve to draw the eye to that massive bolt of energy. Your love of environments and mecha shows!
Reply
:icon47ness:
47ness Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist

Haha, that's one way to look at it. ;P The massive bolt is meant to lead the eye back to the steamwalker itself, but it can be seen as going the other way as well.

 

I'll try to cram as much mecha into my series as I can. XD;

Wow!  That is something else!  I love the distant city background!!

We're on opposite ends of the spectrum about characters, but I already knew.
Reply
:icon47ness:
47ness Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013  Professional Digital Artist

The distant city is the Angstrom Annex (.....it's a lot bigger than the name suggests) :XD:

I think the problem is I'm still too scared to create characters that end up dull or overlap too much with the roles of existing cast members. >0

There's something to be said about having a nice, concise cast where every single character is memorable, but I doubt SSnPP would lend itself to a small cast in its current trajectory. ;P

Anyway, glad you like!

sweet-suzume Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013   Traditional Artist
Oooh, sounds neat!  (well, how big an annex might be depends on how big the main portion is, right?)

Well, it's good to focus on your strengths.  All these things really depend on the story.  I'm always curious to see where you will take your story next.
Reply
:icon47ness:
47ness Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hah thanks; of course, Morticus is trying to leave this place, so the most we'll see of the Annex was back in Chapter 6... (I suppose the main portion is the giant rock formation he built his home out of.)

Maybe. Though a poorly drawn vehicle or environment isn't going to annoy the audience as much as a poorly written or cliched character.

Hehe, my story certainly leaves a lot to guessing about huh? XD;

:iconsweet-suzume:
sweet-suzume Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013   Traditional Artist
Oh, that's right!  (It's interesting though.  I can imagine you drawing some sketches and telling us more about it in a supplement)

I agree, but you can only just keep working at improving things?  You can't force it.  And I don't think a person who's consumed lots of media is likely to write an overly cliched character by accident- I don't think that's something you need to worry about.

Yes!  Which can be fun.  There just has to be enough/the right kind of hooks to draw you in and leave you wondering...

(hoho, maybe a few "production doodle-scribbles" to round out the edges. ......of course I really have enough work built up over the past almost five years I could start my version of the Similarion. :XD: ) I wouldn't though until I knew for sure it wouldn't contradict the main story.

Guess so. I like how you put things. (:

Or just plain flummoxing people. XD I can do that just as well...!

(Maybe a lot? A lot of my ideas I haven't even revealed started in 2009 and they're already stale now, if only because there's been so many movies/books/shows that have since come out and pushed the boundary of what is "good" and original. :/ )

I like how you think then. ^~
