This is going to be a fun challenge! I cant´t wait to se everybodys different interpretations of this very wide subject :)

There´s a proverb in swedish that tranlates to "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed is King" wich I plan to base my submission on. With one charismatic, one-eyed Master and his tail of blind followers (pun intended!).

My initial thoughts is that Eye (as I will call the master) will be a devious leader that takes advantage of his position and rules his little community with an iron fist.

I think that Eye will be well aware that he´s not as allmighty as he wants his servants to belivie, and therefore he feels the need to isolate them even thighter in their little cult with himself as the all-knowing, all-seeing Lord and Master :)

First sketches of the characters, I don´t know if this is something I will stick with yet.
But I think that the blind cult will have some sort of similar clothing or uniforms anyway.

I´ve been thinking of changing Eye to a more sorrowful character, who knows that he´s responsible for the others survival in an unfogiving world. It´s not a bless to be seeing, but a burden he has to carry.

I dont think I will use those hood-designs, but I´d like to focus on his single eye somehow.

This is not a layout for the final image, it´s just to test the effect of very similar cult members with Eyes eye as the only difference between them.

Hmm...something tells me I´m gonna do alot of thinking before starting to sketch out the final composition ;)

Thanks :)
I took a look at your demonic master, and that looks promising!
Good luck to you!

So, Eye and the blind cult are dead. I found myself spending to much time on figuring out how to visualize the proverb, and loosing focus from the "master & servant" theme.

So here´s a new roughly sketched concept:
The big guy is obvioulsy doing the boy a huge favour by carring him around in the desert. Espcecially since he´s got no legs and all. But still, the boy treats him like crap. Why?
Maybe the boy belongs to some kind of ruling class, or maybe it´s just because the big guy lets the boy act like that. Does he even worship the boy maybe? The answers will all be revealed in this very thread, in due time!

(That´s just a fancy way of saying that I don´t know yet;))
