Starting with a fresh design of Barklyn reading from yours truly in an Art Deco style. Then there’s the invaluable Divergent Mind: Insanity and Innovation First Episode Shirt, showing people that you are indeed the first and foremost Divergent Mind of the group.
Merch is on shirts, buttons, hoodies, dogs bandanas, and a variety of other things that will make your day, and if you go to anchor.fm/DivergentMind/message and leave me something fun to hear like a suggestion on art or a scene you’d like drawn let me know, and I’ll try to get it up on the store asap. I’m here for you all. Have a wonderful day and night, -J.
Opening Image: The Kings Guardian group leads him away from the others who are distracted mourning the loss of He’h.
Theme Stated: Reconstruction: “Do we have a medical synthesizer back at camp?” Asks the King. “Of course responds,” the nearest trooper.
Set-up: They get back to camp and he asks for the man who answered him to come into his tent with the synthesizer. As he enters, a laser beam flashes out and he cuts him down at the ankle. He screams, clutching his stumped legs. “Crawl over here and bring those to me. I need them more than you do. I’ll build you a golden chariot for your sacrifice,” offers the King.
Catalyst: The trooper quickly weighs his options and does as he is told. Once done, the king says “Get out of my sight.” As he turns to leave the King shoots him through the heart. “Fool, as though anyone else deserves a great chariot than I,” says the King to himself. He begins working his new legs onto his body.
Debate: Outside the remaining troops see the two flashes and hear the body of their friend Jonas drop to the floor. They begin to talk of what to do with their predicament.
Break into Two: Half the group chooses to abandon the king while he is unwell. Those loyal to the King begin firing wildly into those that are fleeing taking down some but not all of them. The kings numbers dwindle.
B Story: Homnie plants (slams) his Cane into the center of the field and the flowers being to sway towards the center of where the cane is located, only to start wishing away as He’h is reformed as a new form calling himself “He’thol. “It must be some form of ‘Tol accepting my obstruction of him,”
Fun and Games: The king walks out of their tent and finds the group half missing and the bodies laying on the floor.
Midpoint: “Let’s go round us up some traitors,” They yell. And the group cheers.
Bad Guys Close in: The ones that were able to escape hide in a cave not far from the camp, but as far as they could get on foot. Only one or two were able to make it away in vehicles and they were blown up as they attempted to escape.
All is Lost: Laughing echoes into the cave. All too familiar.
Dark Night of the Soul: Those that hear the laughing begin to scream, as the armed troopers close in. Looks of terror blanket their eyes.
Break into Three: Rapid laser fire is seen lighting a dark cave. But not showing contact with the bodies.
Finale: The troopers that cleared the cave come out and let the Tunnel King that they were successful. “That was all of them,” says the trooper.
Final Image: “Good. Let’s get to the citadel. The council have much to answer for,” says the King, holding a radioactive canister.
So I learned years ago you can base almost anything on any object and get a sci-fi look.
So I chose the M.U.T. Multitool that I was given by a friend of my fathers after he died. It had been used to defuse I.E.D.s in Afghanistan so I though I would base the pilot’s ship around it. This is just a basic idea so revisions will come but I’ve been aching to try Clip Studio Paint all day.
Then I tried a pen out in the application and of course had to try animating it in flight. I’m still a beginner animator but figuring that out was a lot of fun.
I know it’s moving too quickly and jaggedly so four out of eight frames should have been for smoothing it’s motion or perhaps all eight in one loop but I got excited.
