Woman in WWII London. From film “The True Glory;” I watch WWII newsreels/footage on my breaks for Symbiosis inspiration. I liked her look.
What’s also interesting (to me) was the sense of unified purpose that seemed to be around during that war. Or at least the image of it that was sold via old movies like this. I know that there were black markets, and anti-war protesters, and all that. But it does make me wish that there could be something other than total war that could unify a nation or the “free world.”
Tirhaelian sniper gun and ghillie suit. Biological components/link with user allows gun to act as its own spotter. Rifle is a gravity manipulation/compression gun. Creates ultra-high gravity beam that compresses all matter within a ~1’ diameter circle around it. Sort of like a black hole gun, only it leaves behind compressed rods of matter; the matter is not destroyed as in a black hole.
Playing with genderfluid fashion for the Apocralite culture. (As the society itself is genderfluid/non-cisnormative/whatever you want to call it.)
Symbiosis spoilers, kind of:
From last week’s Symbiosis progress newsletter. The Apocralites are never allowed to see the outside world without tech that lets them see the world via the world’s interaction with the bio-ether. They can only see and hear normally when indoors. I had a problem making “causal” and “formal” headgear so people didn’t have to wear these big clunky ’40s mil-spec looking things all of the time. I tried hats, and had results I wasn’t very happy with. (try making headgear that covers the eyes and ears without it looking like a superhero outfit. It’s hard.) Alex De Campi suggested gold contacts, and I looked up the history of contacts, and they did exist in a usable form back in the 1940s, so that’s what I went with, along with miniaturized earpieces integrated into accessories/jewelry. The electronics are in the hat. Making a male version now.
Trying out @DaveMarquez’s amazing brushes for PS 6 using my favorite Runaways character. I’m assuming she has the same taste in anime that I do. I don’t know if it’s his brushes, or PS6, but I can suddenly draw in Photoshop now. It’s like night and day. No awkward shaking, smooth control of lines. Amazing. I may drop Sketchbook now.
Approx 45min drawing.
A bit of new Symbiosis art. I’m currently roughing out pages and making little geeky things like this with more detail. Just enjoying the process of world building here, not going for something with BAM POW impact. (“Where does the ground hatch go? Oh, they need wood for that stove. A root cellar would be nice there.” etc. )
Anonymous asked: is this free to use
Let me know what you mean by “this” and I’ll be happy to let you know. Most likely yes, as long as you mention somewhere where you got it from and let others use it if you make any changes to it.
