K.O.E. Preview - 3/15/06
« on: February 23, 2006, 11:48 PM »
OK, I really am working on Chapter 2...

A little taste (albeit not a really great one)




A lone, factory-fresh LAAT rumbles through the morning air. The steady rapping of the engines echoes against Coruscantís mighty facades, creating a strangely calming white noise for the passengers.

. . .


The din of the Scourge III's engines slows as the pilot points the belly of the gunship at the approaching platform below. The morning fog is too thick to get a good visual, but the crew know who is waiting for them below.

Looks really good to me too!  Kind of weird... Last night I worked on a pic very similar to the Gunship one... but yours turned out much better.

Very high praise, PenDragon. Thanks.

This chapter will be relatively heavy on the storytelling, so I hope the writing holds up. :)

In Rem, I think potentially you could make the best photonovel series on any of the boards.† You've got the storytelling ability, photo skills and customizing talent to put it all together in a seemless fashion.

Couple more shots, but no more peeking at the narrative.

I took a lot of pictures tonight, and it seems obvious to me at this point that I have a LOT of production work to put in...





And with a hat tip to CHEWIE:


Probably it for previews. I don't want to give anything away...

LOVE 'EM!  This is such a great piece of work, I can't wait to see more, even if it's just one preview pic!  But it's like throwing a starving man a single Ritz cracker!  More please!!!

Heh... not trying to starve you. :)

Thanks for the nice response, Quazar. I think I'll be able to get more shots done in the next few nights. The problem is I keep expanding things, and there is a LOT of chit chat for chapter 3 (introductions, conversations about Suud and Sedo and blah blah blah...). Not a ton of action.

I feel like I'm spending a ton of time and effort building a base of characters without giving much in the way of action to keep things exciting.  :-\

Oh well... I hope you guys will hang in there. :)

Good looking pics there, IN REM.  The Saesee Tiin looks awesome!  I'll keep an eye out for the new update!  ;D
