071: And Who R U?

More time capsules of the flesh… Gnarly…
I found keeping the consistency of the look of the dead guy’s face very tricky, but I think this suffices. As you might notice, I had this page mirror the panel layout of the previous page. I really love working on orbit, I really find its a great therapy for me.

070: Silent Treatment

I’d like to tell you all that I REALLY enjoy drawing cadavers, but the research behind drawing a man who has been dead in a dry environment for 5 years was a challenge. I had to learn about what would happen to a a human body if left to rot or not (as I will explain below), and whether or not it would actually decompose. And here is what I discovered.

068: Doubts

‘m sure I’ve mentioned before but I’ll say it again just in case: these few most recent pages weren’t plotted in my thumbnails for the chapter, this is mainly because I underestimated the amount of pacing that was needed at this point in the chapter. This whole chapter is a critical point in Oscar’s character portrayal and evolution (trying no to give you spoilers).
Also, I’m sorry to have kept you all waiting, I’ve been rushing to get a load of prints and flyers designed and printed for my convention in two weeks.

067: Little Demons

It’s ok to have self-doubt Oscar, you’re in an exceptional circumstance.

It really bugs me in the horror/survival/adventure genre’s that the main character(s) mostly seem to have the emotional fortitude (or in my opinion the emotional detachment) to go through the escapade without really having any moments to reflect on how very disastrous and daunting the situation they’re in actually is. They don’t stop to think “can they actually face this?” “will they ever make it?” They never see a brand of tea and think “this was neighbor John’s favorite brand, I wonder if I’ll ever see him again?”, and I feel this is an emotional depth that everyone has and should be expressed in all types story telling.

Oscar starts this story lighthearted and innocent, but like with all terrifying and overwhelming experiences, he wont get to stay that way. This is the first real insight into Oscar’s true emotions, and if I were in Oscar’s position I don’t think I would be terribly functional, I am terrible for emotionally bullying myself out of doing things, let alone anyone else’s outside influence. So, I think he’s doing quite well all things considered.
