"Later tonight," "End of Sunday next week..." "Eh, it's all relative.

Okay, I'm a bit disappointed in myself for how long I'm taking to get shit done, but I've been distracted. Also, had a bit if a (re)learning curve with the coloring software. I'll commit the time after thanksgiving to finding a job and nothing else and hopefully I'll have one before school is out. If I get one sooner than that, then as soon as school is out is when I'll officially start the pages for JB and Dax no1. If not, then I'll start the pilot when I feel comfortable enough in my job to make time for it.

Anyway.

This is Detective uh, something-or-other. The process of this character's creation is actually pretty interesting as an insight into a young artist's mind. The absolute original version of him was seriously just a shameless self-insert into a story about vampires. Basically, I wanted to be Blade, and tried to mentally build a setting to service that Mary Sue. I was 14, what do you want? I've since abandoned that non-character and his non-story in his non-setting, but my constant insistence to keep him alive somehow resulted in two usable, but remarkably different characters. Currently, I haven't decided upon which one gets which part of the original name. I may be posting some concept art of the other one later, but his is the second most complete pilot story, so I'll be occupied with that script for a bit too.

Detective Something (a detective named John Doe was already a thing. It wasn't very good) has a keen eye for detail, a good knowledge of things in his setting and a keen ear for inflection, as is essential for a fictional detective, but also... eh... um... Okay, I'm not fully decided in his personality yet either. Just now, I've realized that he's a collection of cop drama cliches with a paranormal-sci-fantasy-noir backstory whilst his clone got the real personality, so it's a good thing then that his pilot isn't coming out first.

He does have some pretty cool gadgets though. In this alternative sci-fi setting where they have some very advanced things (but for dramatic convenience, no internet, very little DNA or fingerprint analysis, and for aesthetic reasons, data is recorded on tapes) people have already invented Plasma Shell Launchers, aka Blasters. Our hero (ooh, Hero is a name...) wields the Broiler 221-B Smart Blaster, (I'm also considering "Inquisitor 221-B." no points if you get the reference) which is essentially designed to be the perfect cop weapon: incapacitating with great efficacy, and using lethal force in only the most extreme circumstances. Its use is enhanced by virtue of its computerization and being connected to his monocle, aka smart lens (that scouter visor thing) which provides many more tools including analysis, record keeping, and night vision.

Let me know (if anyone even bothered to read this far) which outfit you prefer, and of any more criticisms in terms of design (not the quality of this particular page, as it's just a concept sheet). I'm quite partial to the long coat, myself.
