Just some random sketches for tonight. I feel like I’m in creative limbo, wanting to write one thing and wanting to edit something else.
Also, my current story doesn’t have enough oomph. I have to ask some more questions about it to myself. I mean, with Jake and Revi, the finale was always a big cross-world battle against the bad guy. But with this one, eh … the ending isn’t dragging me along in excitement. Right now it’s just a political conflict between some dragons ending in war. Yawn.
I want something BIG and STRANGE and ELECTRIFYING at the end of this story. I’m just not sure what yet. My original idea was lich-drakes, and then World of Warcraft’s Wrath of the Lich King expansion came out, and they did lich-drakes. Heck, they had a whole game zone dedicated to them.
What kind of weirdness can I get up to in a world of dragons? I don’t really want to do the Migard serpent, because that’s been done. I guess I kind of thought the Machine would be the Big Bad. Then I met him, and he’s more like Marvin the depressed robot from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Not quite world-threatening, and very amusing for the other characters to interact with, really.
