Oooh, shiny



The Storyboard - 016 by RickGriffin

This comic was drawn while watching the MST3K episode Overdrawn At The Memory Bank, a movie which is renown for its inexplicable racism against anteaters. And it's not overly fond of monkeys either. So I included both.

Life in the Stacks technically takes place in the same universe as Ten Thousand Miles Up, but it’s half a galaxy away from those events. You can think of it as a mix of Dark City, the vaults from Fallout, and Portal. Where all the “subjects” are a race of mouse people in subjugation to lion people who have gone so long without ethical oversight, it gets kinda weird.

This Storyboard is not quite as cuddly, but it’s still plenty less-clothed

Playing with some character elements here—as much as I like my INA character Kiti, I’ve had trouble rounding her out. As it happens, she is both sheltered and a bit spoiled as her tribe’s scion of the High Priestess; while she’s extremely adept at magic, the real world is a bit more difficult.

Urai, on the other hand, is Riki’s aunt, who raised him—so even though he’s both the chief and her commander, their relationship isn’t QUITE that simple. She tends to be even more fearsome whenever she is pregnant, which is quite often.

Sometimes it’s hard getting inks between the foreground and the backgrounds to differentiate, so I’m trying out some minimalist shading.

Looking back on the Storyboards I’ve drawn, I seem to have an allergy to characters being fully clothed.

Then again, I do draw a lot of these as forms of therapy. I’m equally addicted to creating couples who have a deep passion and energy together.

Did you know Ten Thousand Miles Up (…) Got a prequel called Skeleton Crew? ( It wasn’t even written by me, but I really like it, maybe you will too!

Alternative corny caption: “When you said you wanted to discuss thrusters, I thought you meant the ship” (blame Karishad)

817 deviants said Awesome, go for it
252 deviants said I guess it's fine but I don't have an opinion
41 deviants said I'd be severely disappointed, I thought you were better than that
38 deviants said This is a bad road to go down, you'll be snorting cocaine off hookers' abdomens before you know it
35 deviants said I'd be disappointed, but things change so okay
23 deviants said I crave lusty bodies and will probably bug you to make my fetishes manifest/attempt to RP with your characters in-comment
21 deviants said There's no such thing as non-pornographic nudity
10 deviants said I have no idea what this means help

Awesome touch in this Christmas comic, Dragon and the George/Flight of Dragons is a favorite books/special of mine, and the holiday twist to it is in-genius.

There is something about your art that seems familiar. The only words that comes to mind is "Classic style".

I have a bit of an oddball question.  Did you get a chance to watch "Interstellar" in the theaters?  I absolutely loved it in the same way I loved 2001: A Space Odyssey, but I can see how some people would think otherwise.
RickGriffin Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have not seen it
alphabetagamma1701 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014
You should give a watch.  It's about 3 hours long, but it's a good three hours.  If you've watched any sci-fi movies similar to 2001: A Space Odyssey or any Christopher Nolan movies like Inception, then you might like it.
