Dead City by zorm Dead City by zorm
Story concepts... A cursed, dead city, where the light seems to play its own life with unnatural shadows.

A color-tweaked pencil sketch I've been drawing in the middle of math exam readings.

Alright, now that I've been reading your story, I've been going back through these, and am wondeirng, is this the city your character first encounters?

These are all very early concepts, some have been drawn before I even properly had described the characters & places. All have been subjected to a great deal of change, but this is indeed one of my first ideas of the haunted city Hiid accidentally finds herself in.

If you're seeking for better art of the characters (these pictures have purposefully been place in the 'old crap' folder ;D), I suggest you look here: [link]

Also, Hiid is red-haired, and Khran was rather cleaner in the older pictures. Now he tends to attract flies. :)

Very beautiful piece - the highlights in light blue give it some sort of ghostly aura that fits just right :)
As a sidenote, are those pointy things in the bacg trees? I used to draw trees like that, a few years ago (cone-like, extra-pointy, etc, until my friends started to make jokes about 'who dropped the ice-cream?' and similar), and I never saw anyone else draw the like that...

Thanks. :)
The pointy thingies aren't trees. They're some sort of needle-sharp mini-mountains looming in the horizon... (Or in the craziest case a giant fossilized mutant hedgehog.) Stuff like that is so common in cartoons, that I didn't even come to think they might resemble trees. :)

Ohh I like the look of this, it looks very story boardish with it's roughness.
I like the coloring style chosen too, just enough color to bring it to life, but not a lot so that you loose the nice and drawn quality of it. And the blue gives off a nice glowing feel to it ^_^.

Creepy place it seems. The giant statues are so foreboding. Very interesting
