I noticed way too late that I drew Kyaye talking, but in the script it was Domro. Oh well, she’s the captain, and their society is matriarchal, so I guess her talking for him makes sense.
That took almost the whole week to draw. Hopefully by the end of the chapter I’ll be faster at this whole “dual shading” thing.
I shamelessly stole my sister’s house’s layout for Vicki’s apartment.
In the initial scene list, I had Vicki go along with. Then I realized that I can’t really set her up as having a safer, more stable life and have willing and able to go on this mission with no advanced warning.
Speaking of first drafts, Vicki and Bryn actually made it to the first draft of chapter one as crew members, until I realized just how bloated the cast was. The outline also included yet another crew member, an Earth-born member of an amphibious alien species, named Frida.
