This is a Sketchbook for the members of the Insomniacs team for the Team Chow to organize and share wips in.
Kleewyk: Our evil laugh
Bone_fish: The one who just joined
Keng: The one who wrote this.
To summarize our planning so far:
I'll be taking charge of the Sage and the Technician. (WOOT! I get the smart people!), Kleewyk will be taking our Heroin and the Rabble Rouser, and Bone_Fish has the Shadow and the Protector.
I've been looking around and for a short bit I was worried that my idea for the sage would be out of the appropriate era but upon further research (google actually offered me very little info on this) the Victorian era is roughly the time period that the situation of my Sage might occur. (or at least close enough) Woot! So he'll be about 12-14 years old and served in the British Navy as an officer for a while. I might ditch the officer part but he's been to school and that's all that matters.
I've also been looking around at Russian art seeing as how that's where the majority of our characters are from. I think I'm getting too into the research of this XD. It's hard to find what common folk fashion might have looked like. I was hoping to find a few inspirations for the style of art but I may have to look in the school library (HOLY GA-JEEBERS! RESEARCH OFF THE INTERNET!) for some books that might be able to give me more of the type of art I'm looking for and a broader sampling. From my brief search there isn't much online. I'm probably just not using the right keywords.
Also, to build on my reputation of over-thinking things, I have come to the conclusion that anything in Russia that's steam powered will have to be kept hot at all times during the winter because otherwise the water would freeze. On that note it's likely that the steam coming out will crystallize and cause buildups of ice. The technician sure is going to have a lot on her hands. No wonder they decided to bring her along!
Oh, I should probably mention for those of you who might be reading this and getting a little lost that we've chosen Russian Steam Punk in Winter as our theme for the challenge.
Just one more week (and a bit) of school left thank goodness. This thread might be a little slow until it's over. Go go animation students!
