Finals are over this week. Bear with it, FJRA will be back on the air soon after.
So, during my second sophomore semester, the one I'm about to finish up next week, I took a Sequential Art Class which was an X-Ton of fun, awesome professor and all.
During which, in the first few weeks of class, he had us do 12 3-4 panel strips that all featured a character of our own. Naturally, I chose Zenobia. And had alot of fun with it! Just some fun non-canon strips featuring her.
Funny enough, my professor found Zenobia highly appealing as a character, and loved all of the strips.
More to come.
Master - Thunder Cheerilyu
"I see, you want.. T-THAT
Cheerilee would make an awesome Thunder Ryu IMO. Therefore, here she is.
Granny Smith as Speed Buster
"Buck you, ya little parasprite!"
Aww man, who more fitting? Admittedly not my best, kinda realized too late the gun wasn't big enough, but no big deal.
As if she weren't badass enough, Granny Smith fits Speed Buster's role perfectly IMO.
Here's a rough cover page for a project I'd like to start after I finish FJRA, which won't be for a long while.
This one started in my Sequential Art class, which I had the final for early this morning. Got an A too! In short, we were to create, write, and draw 6 pages of our own graphic novel.
Now going with FJRA would've been slightly cheating IMO, seeing as I've already shown it to my Professor, plus I thought it'd be a good exercise to start from scratch again. As I went on with script and planning, the idea kinda grew on me and I'm confident I can make something out of it. But not before FJRA's done. As of now, I don't plan to juggle multiple stories.
If you know me, you know series that I draw alot of inspiration from. It's no secret really. The trick is making your own story instead of retelling someone else's. As overly done post-apocalyptic worlds are, I'm still deciding on if the setting will be simply alternate earth, or PA Alternate Earth. Can be ironed out later.
Lift Gauntlets, tools used by the Stratoscape organization to move cargo and objects easier and without physical contact. Operated through not only mental stability and willpower, but also significant physical strength. Meet our Hero(?) who finds them most valuable. With Willpower and Physical Strength, using Lift Gauntlets is simple. Most anyone able to think can do it. Though they're pretty inefficient when moving more than one object per glove. That's pretty much unheard of unless you're some kinda insane wavemaster bigshot with the mental skill to do so.
Stratoscape's constantly looking for scraps and salvageable equipment and resources to put towards their repairs from attack and building new crafts and stations. If you're just joining, the lowest branch and starting position would be a cargo worker. It's not the best paying job, but hey, Lift Gauntlets can be fun to use. Just make sure to goof off when no one's looking, that battery power's to be used for WORK. If you're just joining this particular station of Stratoscape, Mond is the guy to make good relations with. He's managed and supervised the place longer than the current boss has been running it, he even got the guy the position to begin with. Acting also as lead janitor and head trainer of newcomer cargo workers. Most of them respectfully fear him for his intimidating and pensive exterior, but he's a good guy.
And can work lift gauntlets like nobody's business. His physical strength is rivaled only by his strong mind. By his level, who needs two gauntlets? He's supervisor for a reason.
Why hasn't he been promoted yet? He's too valuable to this station to go. He saves them alot by handling so much. And He doesn't blame them. Another reason they keep him where he is is his ability to manage the key to the storage room for all of the expensive equipment. Carrier Dumpsters, Gauntlets, digging tools, etc., everything the workers use.
It's not a big responsibility in the spectrum of theft, it's just really REALLY HEAVY. Almost impossible to move without lift gauntlets, and even then usually requires multiple people to effectively maneuver it. If anyone can do it on their own, Mond says they deserve access whatever they please from storage. Good luck.
As for Terran, he's had Mond as a mentor since he started working here, and since has been trained by him in using Lift Gauntlets. Though Mond never intently lead him onto moving the key though. That's his own bit of skill learned through rebellion. Terran's not really a nice guy, though he has a short short list of those he respects.
Oh, and he hates Earth. Alot.
But I ramble. Y'know, just ideas for the future.
