A Door In Nowhere

One of the closing indiegogo perks goes to adoorinnowhere.com, a webcomic about, surprisingly, a door in nowhere.

Deep in the Nevada desert lies a secret, a big secret.  A secret so big that for years a black budget has flowed in to this unknown money pit.  What could it be, Aliens? A mythic power?  Only two sentries know, and they’re not talking.

Well, they are actually but only to each other and certainly not about the mysterious door.  Mostly they get eaten by bears, adopt tumbleweeds or shoot each other for sport. 

An awesome comic I’m happy to recommend, check it out now!!!

With Orin and the Dead Man’s Sword's first chapter all wrapped up now on Weald Comics, I’ve got even more time to sit and contemplate the next installment. And you’ve got nothing new to read on Fridays! Well, let me do a little dev-blogging for you in the interim:

A few weeks ago I gave you a sneak peek at some of the very-very-early character design work for Adin.

I’ve been spending a whole lot more time in the sketchbook with her this summer, and she’s settled into what I think of as her mountain-hermit-princess state. It’s been a different challenge settling her into a design and writing this next chapter, as there is a whole lot more worldbuilding, and I find myself going back and forth from designing architecture and social structures to deciding what sort of footwear Adin would use. 

I’m really getting to love Adin’s voice and attitude, and I can’t wait to introduce her to you. Unlike Orin, she has a lot to say. 

Adin Verse Snippet:

Adin sits cross-legged on the bed, staring expressionlessly at Slade’s corpse. He looks up at Ra’s.

“Are you going to kill me too?” he asks curiously, head tilted to the side. Ra’s gives the boy a long look.

“No,” He tells the boy.

Adin nods. “Are you going to let me go?”

“No.” Adin considers this.

“Call me Tim,” he says at last.
