Got a metallic gold gel pen 'cuz I wanted to try it to depict how Minerva in OtR might visually manifest the extra-dimensional power she gains. Also I've been thinking about the interesting flattening effect that shiny gold paint has in Klimt's paintings, kind of punching a hole in the picture plane.

pen, markers, and gold gel ink on marker paper

Now, I'm not smart enough to toy with the representational/graphic dichotomy like Klimt without hurting myself. But I wondered whether that effect might work well to show how the energy is in Minnie's body but not really of this dimension.


pencils -> ink -> quick color studies

(Edit 8/10/15: I think this plot element is gonna be dropped. Going from overt scifi to a more real-world thriller kind of thing. Dang, it looked cool.)

A color-lifting experiment with Minerva's hair and faded-denim jeans.

Such a simple fix, but antagonist Ryuji looks so much more menacing when I change his overcoat from khaki to black! But now Minerva's outfit is too dark alongside it. I want them to look complementary.

decided to develop my building-rubble theory a bit better, then realized i should probably change the costume designs, then realized i should probably (re)write the damn thing, and finally wound up at a point where i don't think my existing pages or vis-dev are usable anymore. ugh.
