Hey folks!

Well, it's certainly been a while :faint: I've been all kinds of busy with a lot of projects that needed my attention, which unfortunately hampered my ability to post more regularly over here. However, that doesn't mean I've forgotten about dA and now that I can spare a few minutes I'm making it a point to upload as much artwork as possible, which I hope you enjoy :nod:

One of the things I always do make time for is my Friday FREE MARS explorations while I bide my time until I can properly get some new pages' worth of story done. And while the original webcomic had a full-color palette approach, I've found that working in straight pen and ink gives off a very gritty and atmospheric aura to the whole dystopian, cyberpunk background we've given this tale; on top of making it faster for me to render, too :D
Featured here are two aspects of martian society in the year 2339 that are unavoidable in every hab-pyramid: cops and priests. The former are naturally very corporate-oriented in their mindset, always abiding by their employers' sanctions and generally unafvorable towards the populace and whatever stirs the status quo. Their grim faces are a testament to their outlook in life. Contrasting them, is the Priest of Earth intent on converting any martian willing to hear his ramblings to the Holy cause: bring back the colonies into Earth's grasp and try and rebuild the toxic wasteland its become. Not an easy sell, but they try their absolute hardest!

As usual, I hope you enjoy these glimpses into the greater world-building of this story and thank you for your constant support and encouragement!

See you soon!

Nic.-

¡Qué convincente!
Pues, con el caso del predicador, voy a esperar hasta que se ahogue con sus propias flemas. Apuesto a que sus pulmones están tan limpios como su cabeza.

Totalmente; por algo los colonos marcianos no le dan mucha importancia a la Tierra y sus locos fanáticos :D

Ese fanático no debería romantizar el pasado, ¿Sabes?
