Thanks for the references, Wei! She's definitely becoming more twisted and wicked in design the more I draw her. I think at first I wanted to have more of a flowerly influence in her design, not pretty flowers, of course. But looking at these, a more tree like route seems more ideal.
The basic idea is this: There is a plane of existence between "Life" and "Death" that our conscious energy (ie: soul) temporarily inhabits after our physical body can no longer support it. It is then processed to serve a greater purpose in the grand scheme of the universe.
The story will be about the inhabitants of Sundrop, a town set in this plane. This town, styled as a small desert town, is a place for souls to wait while they are processed by the greater forces at work. The warden, a former old west icon, and his small group of companions, live there to help shelter and guide the newly dead until their time to move on.
I'm trying to build it as open as possible so that the range of story possibilities is great. I don't have a grander plot for it all at the moment, not sure it will have one. Rather I want the stories to exist independently, the focus resting on the four main characters, their interactions, their histories, and their adventures. Character studies as well as thought experiments on life, death, and the workings of the universe.
Ok, so maybe that's not so basic, haha. But that IS the general idea, without getting deep into the characters themselves and the specific tales I am planning.
Anyway, I've invaded your eyeballs long enough, thanks for lookin'! More art soon!
