Approx. two months ago I have moved to a new place (Tromsø, above the Arctic Circle in Norway) and have started a new job (a PhD in chronobiology). I'm getting settled here and am surrounded by fantastic nature and a lot of mountains (some still with snow on it in mid-summer). The nature that gives me a lot of inspiration! But now coming to the point: my graphic novel (Reign of Siderians: Theory of Mind) is now on hold, but soon I will slowly start with it again - I expect in the next few days.
However as the title suggests - I 'suffer' from a chain-lightning of inspiration in my head. I have decided to start with the 'real' story of Reign of Siderians; namely the story of my personal favourite character, the white devil named Stian (many people may know him already). I have been working on this sideline about Yves and Sasha now for three years, and have learned a lot about story telling. But now it is time to begin with my main story. I have got plenty of ideas and this is going to take a lot of time. This volume will be named 'Predator Control' and will have another format as Theory of Mind. I will not write it in comic style, but more as an illustrated book with more detailed texts. However, some scenes will be in comic style anyway. Neither will I update it page for page, but maybe publish it chapter by chapter, or just all at once. It may take many more years, but I will probably show you the artwork of several scenes meanwhile!!. The story will focus on the complexity of the human-carnivore conflict as it is in real-life and it will be based on real science (thankfully I have free access to scientific articles now I'm doing a PhD - so basically I'm a scientist myself now - yeey
). As I said - it's about Stian, but the story will have several other point-of-view characters, including a human character who will show the human-side of the problem. Anyway I am very excited about this!
I will not drop Theory of Mind of course, but updates will probably be even less frequently as they already were, but I will try to draw new pages as often a possible. I still love this story and I will finish it, no matter how long it will take!
If you have any questions; just spam me
The safest way to ask questions is by sending me notes - because comments can quickly get buried.
Anyway enjoy my graphic novel so far: ** Reign of Siderians - Theory of Mind ** Prologue Chapter 1 - Through Blue Eyes Chapter 2: The following past **Siderians- my original feline species**
(previously known as cheederians)
Siderians (Metafelis lamnis
) are large mammals of the order carnivora, family Felidae, and have the appearance of a powerful and mighty predator. They are build for stalking, a quick acceleration at high speed, making quick, flexible jumps and taking down large prey. The average siderian looks like a feline hybrid (a hybrid between the extreme type Siamese and Oriental longhair, tiger and some Eurasian lynx elements)as tall as a small horse (150-160 cm at the shoulder), large retractile claws and a large brain-cage. This highly cognitive species is able to use metaphysic energy for advanced techniques. They use their energy-sensitive lightals (little metal blades on their ears and muzzle) for this. The siderians roam the Northern hemisphere with the highest density in the Rocky Mountains, Norway & Sweden, Siberia and the Alps. Sirians live mainly solidarity or in pairs but can have friend and family bonds as well - however they all time hunt alone or in pairs - group hunting is a rare exception. They do not depend on the society but create common information and metaphysics resources they call 'metaclusters'. The advanced cognitive abilities and highly developed language makes them very anthropomorphic at as it comes to behaviour. However, siderians also show behaviour typical for felids, like purring and meowing like sounds
. You can meet some of my siderian characters here on DA, which all have an individual storyline and personality. Commissions
