Mad Max : Fury Road is currently in the theatres, produced by George Miller.

For all its post apocalyptic blood type matching goodness it does reflect the Australian love affair with the motor car, and that can pretty much be applied to this current global civilization. It kind of reminds me of a comic from the St Louis Post-Dispatch, November, 1899. Walt McDougall was kind of prescient.

Geralt, Witcher 3 sketch.

Yet to find a better way to make shadow than using a black pen.
At some point I may make the transition to oil paints that would more successfully allow a shaded background. Composition is meant to contain comic elements.

Still learning how to paint water...

A "Cogwatch" review (21st May 2015) that looks into game mechanics gives a review of the Sunless Seas experience, in terms of how the game uses negative emotions to build its experience and empathy the player develops for the games characters represented situations. I found the review interesting at least, the sense of space created by the absence of immediate objects of attention and then moments of tension (intense attention) that creates the sense of a journey, in the context of a sea voyage narrative.
