This Inktober 2019 I tried to draw scenes from my personal project with working title 'Almira'. For years I dreamed that I would draw a story about crazy adventures of a musician who became an ace pilot but couldn't give up rebel. He is not alone in his journey. His two best friends are a scientist, who can feel/see others emotions. He thinks he has no his own feelings, but falls in love. The second one is a killer girl who just wants to be free of her call of duty. But to fulfill her dream she becomes a tyran - the empress of garbage as she calls herself. In my mind the story was full of music, good lyrics, clever thoughts and adventures. At first it was a love story, but I decided to add some global ideas. It's a pity, I'm not so smart to manage all this.
The story takes place in the far future, where a man has problems with childbirth, but live long if one has credits. Colonisation of near space is going well, but mostly because of the artificial asteroids. Clones, cyborgs, flying cars, AI - all that stuff. Humanity is desoriented. The fight between unique, personal and social goes to the new level. Because of the race for uniqueness people loose there attention to the simple beauty of the world.
'Let us make pauses in words' wrote one soviet singer.
So, I draw the story as Inktober project, basing on the official list of themes for 2019 year. They are named in the corner of each picture, but I put pictures in the order of my story now. I think I'll write some preword to each frame.
Have a nice viewding! And sorry for mistakes.
