Parallel Scales is being scrapped, but…
I had my wisdom teeth out a week ago as of today.
And it was not a pleasant experience.
But it did give me a lot of time to think about Parallel Scales, and I came to the conclusion that…
I really don’t want to work on “PaScal” anymore. I hadn’t even finished plotting it out, and it was already getting to be a chore. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to do a webcomic, it just means that “PaScal” wasn’t the one.
While I was laying around (not in a painkiller high, I only took one dose, and between that and the copious amounts of blood I swallowed on the first day, yeeeeeeah, not a fun experience), I began to explore an idea of something that was taking place in the “PaScal” world. It was an idea that I really liked and felt had a ton of flexibility yet enough structure to have a solid setting and storyline. For those following my Tumblr at http://esilesonia.tumblr.com, you may have noticed an influx of a few subjects that I hadn’t posted about previously. Well, pretty much everything I’m reblogging now (apart from memes and food) is being posted for inspiration and/or research purposes.
Many of the characters I’ve created (some of which I’ve posted, some of which I haven’t) are going to be seamlessly carried over into the new comic. there may be a few slight tweaks, but their designs and personalities work well even within the new constraints of the storyline.
I’ll be revealing the title and some plot information soon.
I have a really fantastic feeling about this and for the first time in over half a year, I can’t wait to race into this project.
Just gotta write this concept down for Parallel Scales.
I thought when I saw her, I’d think “Oh, it’s just Louise.” Just Louise. Like “Oh, it’s just a tree.” I thought all of those old feelings were gone. Gone completely. I used to think about her every day, no, every hour, no, every minute, and I mean every minute. She haunted my dreams. But eventually, she faded away, a cobweb in a corner that collapsed under layers upon layers of dust. I moved on, or… At least I thought I did. When I saw her, it was like the dust had never collected and she was a freshly spun spiderweb gleaming in the sunlight. Did I ever fall out of love, or did I just fall right back in? I swear, I might as well be a fly. A fly dazzled by the light, too wild and reckless to care that I’m flying right into what’s certain to be a slow, painful death. But even when my wings stick, I’m too elated to care! I’m a part of her and that’s all that matters!
Parallel Scales is still in development!
I just haven’t had access to a scanner recently so I haven’t been able to post much. :) That will change very soon and I’ll be back to posting concept art. Until then, I can post some unpolished dialogue/concept notes every so often. Here’s a little bit that will likely be trimmed down a lot if it makes it in the final script, but I like it as a whole.
It’s like, well, think back to when you were twelve, thirteen, about that age. And you had a crush on someone. And you were in the same room with them, with what felt like a billion other people. You didn’t want any of them to catch you glancing at the other person because you weren’t even comfortable with having a crush. It was something to be hidden, something to be ashamed of, something that nobody could find out. So you glanced out of the corner of your eye, you took peeks that were just long enough to prove the other person was still there, you stared from the other end of the room through the crowds and hoped nobody would figure out what was making you blush. Well, I’m nineteen. And I’m still like that.
For those who don’t know, Parallel Scales is a webcomic I’ve been developing for a while. :)
