Benne is home. But, what is home like? Who else lives there? Its been fun working on some new characters we’ll soon see.
But first, can we please find out why life is so deceptively simple in Benne’s world? Will it stay that way? Benne seems destined to wander much farther than the ravine and possible deeper.
Benne is home
What the best storytelling does is not tell you everything. Some things are left to your imagination. Its the same when you create art. So much is left behind. All the hours working on a scene that will never be good enough. Characters that don’t make sense even if they did in the rough draft. And if your medium is 3d, a million brushes to learn.
The Buddy has been sleeping a long time, so he’s pretty roughed up. It’s so much easier with Substance Painter. So is the ground, so are the hills, so are the rocks.
At this point I had wanted to introduce another character or two, but moving the story forward seemed like a better idea. Plus, when is the robot waking up?
As we get closer to home, we meet more characters. I’m really interested how this turns out!
This page took a little longer because Benne is almost home. I like to block out subsequent pages so I can see the continuity. So this page has to make sense with the following pages.
What does home look like? Who else lives there? Does Benne have any friends or siblings? Why are the monks called the Timemonks? Was that a robot or a statue? Does Timo kill the deer?
If you’ve been following along you know I’m making it up as I go. There are notes, but no details. Just stuff like “Benne talks to her dad and then he explains what the door is and where it leads to.”
And “Don’t you dare go back there!”
