Campus Avenue bears a strange energy, intangible, ethereal. Halfway between the Administration Building and the Lower Dorms, six ancient stoneworks line the road. They are arranged the same way as the pips on the six side of a die, even rows with a gap between, where the brick road runs.
The pedestals are four feet off the ground at their highest, each with a low ramp that runs to the edge of the road and no further. The road is not part of them, since the stoneworks were constructed from a form a basalt known only to exist miles below the surface. The road is red brick only. The road is not special save that when it was built, the road crew specifically, carefully, painfully measured the spacing between the pedestals that they should avoid the road sides from touching the edges of the stone ramps.
Nobody had asked them to. That is what everyone knows about Campus Avenue: nobody wants to disturb the stoneworks. They are scarcely documented. The university’s most prestigious arche
Dogmen universe. One I haven't touched on much because I hadn't settled on a look that would be appropriate for the setting. It took me two days to settle on something I could work from.
If you've seen anything I've drawn FOR this universe you might know it has a horror focus. Yet I'm still absurdly interested in how characters deal with and rely on each other in those kinds of crises.
I do have a lot to say on the nature of dark thoughts, though I don't know if I should get into it; suffice to say, I think exploring darkness is necessary. Not for its own sake, but because digging in and facing terrible things helps us think more clearly about them later. It's not for everyone. But it's worth dipping your toes into.
Also if you've seen any previous pictures of Arthur, he's been vastly redesigned, as his old design was basically a precursor to Charli, who I ended up drawing more, so she owns that look now.
