Anyways. Although yesterday and today didn't turn out as adventurous as Tuesday and Wednesday were, they certainly are not without events (Actually, I just enjoy blogging about even the most trivial things.) Let's pick up from where we left off. I spent Thursday morning at Jamie and John's. Had a coffee, listening to some music and talking to Jamie about comics ideas and stuff. As a result, I came up with two more character designs:
Guy on the right is one of the main character's only friends in the home universe. His facial features are actually based on John's. Anyway. This guy doesn't go on dimensional trips with the main character's alter ego but always appears on his side, whichever alternate reality he enters. There's another two characters like this one, but I haven't designed them yet. Also, these three characters' costumes will change every adventure, as the main character's alter ego doesn't travel with them, but only meets alternate versions of them.
I'm very fired up about this project and will definitely try to sustain my interest for a long time. Stay tuned for more updates. :)
Carly visited me at the main campus this afternoon, carrying her brand new video camera which she intends to use to record every moment of her life from now on. Interesting idea, actually. If she can actually keep this up, ten years down the road it can even be showcased as an artwork. No joke. I can also witness the changes of my accent. Lol.
Also, I have just read the ending of DC Comics' Flashpoint event and the first issue of their new Justice League series - part of the monumental reboot of DC Universe. I must say, as much as I dreaded the fact that Wally West is non-existent in this new continuity, things are looking pretty solid. The new origin story of the Justice League starts off action-packed and absolutely intriguing. The first four characters introduced, Batman, Green Lantern, Cyborg (still Vic Stone for the time being) and Superman clearly showing off their personalities. Batman is a caped vigilante chasing an unknown threat while being chased by the authorities (though he doesn't seem as badass as I would've liked), Hal Jordan a cocky and fearless rookie Green Lantern who obviously hasn't fully understood the superhero game, Vic Stone a college football star with a complicated relationship with his dad and Superman seemingly a morally ambiguous powerhouse.
|These panels pretty much sum up how Superman, Green Lantern and Batman are portrayed in Justice League #1|
Till next time!
