Shootout in Town Square by povorot Shootout in Town Square by povorot
A piece from one of my final projects - a world-building project for a landscape and environment class. (The context? Kal-Tuhn gangsters make their escape from a water robbery.)

So where's the water they stole? Did they maybe have some accomplices that stole the water tower with a giant truck, and these guys were there to shoot down any feds that showed up?

These rebels are great, although they remind me Birrins.

This seems like an interesting setting you've made here.

ah, I am looking back at these pieces now, and I cannot help but knotice the similarities between these tripods and those of 'Prophet'! was one project an offshoot from the other?

if so, this project you have created here might serve as some sort of a ...prequel?... or, a 'companion'?.... of Prophet, or perhaps could be included in an issue of the comic at some point? if, of course, that would even begin to make sense, or is at all relevant to the story...

even so, I do hope you find the time to expand upon this project at some point, as I quite like it!

Love the woven Andean caps worn by the Kal-Tuhn.

Thanks, man - I like to draw a lot from existing cultures to inform my critters (as opposed to just video games and shitty movies, which seem to sadly inform a lot of people's work).

They don't seem to have stolen much water. Very good work as always. For a while reminded me of your Dinosauroids and the Brin.

Thanks - I think they were informed by both imaginary species while I was working on them.

So there are THREE sentient species on this planet?
Reply
:iconpovorot:
povorot Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011
Well, the humans and the pentapods are just settlers and refugees - the amphorans are the only native residents.

But yes.

Cool. How much of this history have you worked out?
Reply
:iconpovorot:
povorot Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011
Well, about enough for the beginning of development for a story. It'd still need a lot more, but I'm starting to figure out the basic political-social relationships between the different species - or, at least how they might effect characters placed into the setting.

Cool. Are you going to continue with the story now that the assignment is over?

Hopefully - I've got enough stuff underway right now that it probably won't get any attention for a while, though.

I know what that's like. I have a notebooks and computer files full of ideas I don't have time to realize. Good luck with it.

Very nice! The orange sky really makes the desert feel like a desert. What do you think you learned most from this class?
Reply
:iconpovorot:
povorot Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011
I think the best part of this class has been introducing to me the idea that the landscape can play just as important a part in defining the character of your story/setting as your characters - which is a pretty significant revelation, I think.

Gah! I just had to fave all of them, they're all so cool! I think I especially like this one, though. Not entirely sure why. I think it might be that it's got an arid setting. And the water robbery bit.

Many thanks - it was probably my best project of the year.

I very much like this project! most definetly one of your best as of yet! the tribed is fantastic, I am quite fond of his clothing, which reminds me rather of some of the garb worn by your dinosuaroids... the buildings in the background have a very nice vibe to them as well, the entire piece comes off as a greatly atmospheric and arid one!

:iconpovorot:
povorot Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011
Yeah, I agree - this is definitely my favourite school project I've put up here. I'm glad you like it!

(And I think that I might need to start finding new places to start developing non-human clothing from - everything does have that dinosauroid vibe to it...)

as am I!

hmmm, I have recently been viewing photographs of the people of India, Tibet, Pakistan, and other such places... the cultural diversity of these people and the clothing worn by them is always rather interesting to behold, and provides great inspiration for the garb of both human and non human characters... as long as the designs are not simply copied.
