I spent most of the summer working on a big, odd, sci-fi story that, while I'm excited by it, I'm also unsure about it. After slowly developing it for a few months, it occurred to me that it might not really be for kids. It's not that it's too heady or violent, but I'm just not sure what it says to kids about the lives they live. While it is a story that is meaningful to me, I simply don't know if a young audience would relate to it. And truthfully, I'm not really interested in aiming at at adults. This is a hard one. I'm not sure if I'm going to go forward with it.
These were two sketches I put together. In the top one I'm really trying to figure out how simple I could go with colors and solid blacks.
This one is a colored sketchbook page. Some of the stuff, such as the lederhosen dude, just kinda snuck onto the page.
