For anyone still interested, I thought it’d be worth updating the first post every time i update the thread…[b]
It’s been a while, but i’ve managed to find some time here and there to work on the King of Space. Here’s the latest work, and you can read explanations and see the images again later in the thread!
The latest character designs:
Just messing about with a floating throne based on an old paiting of Napoleon:
And the updated strip:
Ever get a feeling of Deja Vu…?
For those that may have noticed, this is a third dawn for the ‘King of Space’!? But this time around, i’m gonna make a big effort to regularly add strips and images!!
The COMiC STRiP is being relaunched in the next few days and the format’s changed a little and CGtalk’s changed a bit too, so i’m setting off with a new thread for the ALL NeW KiNG of SPaCE!! Well… erm… not that new actually… but the new bits will be new. The story and premise of the strip remains the same.
Basically… It’s the future. (Or is it a long long time ago? hmmm?). There’s this kid. He’s called Rex. And he wants to be KiNG of SPaCe. But everyone laughs at him. How can a little kid become KiNG of SPaCe? But they don’t understand his determination. And before they know it, He’s KiNG of SPaCe!!
There’ll be strips of the early years… strips of the months of conquest and conflict… and strips of the Rule of Rex, KiNG of SPaCe!! There’ll be love, robots, tantrums and torment… And spaceships… And lasers… And big explosions… And other stuff too…
SO here’s a bunch of work so far, starting with the most recent sketch of Rex in a makeshift crown and gown before he conquers the universe.
Here’s a few of the concept sketches from the re-design of Rex following the Grand Space Opera, when i hadn’t yet decided to call him Rex:
And here’s the ‘Prologue’ i sketched during the Grand Space Opera challenge. Unfortunately i had to withdraw from the challenge because of (noisy, smelly, nappy devouring… but cute) personal commitments, the rigmarole associated with applying for and changing jobs and a very kaput scanner… but i liked the idea, so i’m gonna run with it…
And finally… just to show the progression from last october… the first proper sketch of the KiNG of SPaCe, also from my Grand Space Opera thread:
And that’s it for now… I hope it didn’t take an age to download…? I think the plan is to continually update this first post of the thread with each new strip. And we’ll all be linked from the main COMiC STRiP thread. I’m hoping to get at least one comic strip drawn up in the next few days… then a poster… then a couple of ‘mood’ images… and a character sheet.
More to come…
