Well. There were actually a lot of options on what to post for this update. Three for that matter, and I chose the third option.
So the story behind this update goes back almost three months now, to my would have been submission to RSoM 6. Simply put, a spent a month thinking of storyline, characters, plot, etc, and it was all neat and orderly, and, well, it flopped. I didn’t like it and scrapped the project, which is a really J thing to do, but we all have our bad days, I suppose.
Recently, I said, “Hey, I’ve got an even better idea”. A better idea for RSoM 6 at least. If I told you about the idea, it would ruin the story’s “Wtf” element, so I’m not going to say anything. I’m just going to post the first two concept doodles (2 of 4, demonstrating how impulsive the descision was to draw this).
I doubt it’ll win even the honorable mentions. In all 5 RSoM’s, I’ve seen ONE pencil’ed submission win. There is very little chance I’ll be the second. For the most part, I just need to spend some time practicing inking – toning can be (What’s that word?) [faked] by grayscale cell shading, and with a tablet, that shouldn’t be too difficult (Maybe I’ll stand a chance for 7 or 8, if they even do that).
But for now, happy whatever.
