Edited on 22-8-12: changed 'Saturn' to 'Saturna' and 'Neptune' to 'Neptunia'. That way the 8 firstborn are 4 females and 4 males.
My first map of Atlantis! This gives a basic overview of where you can find what.
Every ring has it's own purpose. Basically counts, the further you live towards the middle, the more royal or rich you are.
- Queen Sferath resides in the middle with her huge palace. Her noble High Order is allowed to live here as well. - The Lemurian market is the most expensive market with products from the sacred land of Lemuria (the neighbouring island which lies around Atlantis like a crescent moon). It is said Rath once lived in this sanctuary before he disappeared. - The next ring is where the Firstborn live together with their closest families and/or friends. (The Firstborn are the first 8 sfera who were given life by Rath through creation rather than normal birth. They can be recognized by their lack of a navel.) - After this is the ring where you can find all the stores and the normal market. The products on this market are all imported to Atlantis from overseas. - The next ring has a beautiful park with trees, flowers, grasslands and walking paths. - The ring with public facilities is an important ring for everyone. Here you can find facilities such as schools, bathing houses, hospitals and many more. - The biggest ring is that of the common people. This is where most sfera have their homes. - The outer ring has all the harbours. On the docks traders interrogate with one another before products are shipped to the markets or stores.
All the harbours and the canals connected to them are named after the 8 Firstborn. The many canals are used to ship the goods from the harbour into every region of the city.
Well, I think most is said! \owo/ Finally Meian is progressing!
I'm testing a bit what I want my comic to look like in the far distant nearby future. I wonder if the colouring looks a little too 'speed-painty' this way. On the other hand, if I put any more effort in it I would be working about 10-20 hours on only just one panel and that's simply too long. Especially considering that everyone who reads a comic won't look at one panel-picture for more than a few seconds. XD;; Then again, I drew this on a way bigger resolution than one panel would be... so that automatically requires more time and effort to finish it. Oh well. I do know one thing for sure, it's going to be full colour!
Expect more random panels or short comics like this. Some I might use later, some I might not. Practice practice practice~
Ah you know, maybe this picture was just an excuse to draw Jay half naked >U> See?! He's not a woman!! *pointsfranticallypointpoints*
