New Work: The Little Red Fish

I have been working a lot on some projects, I just haven't been the best at posting them. One of which is "The Little Red Fish." It is sort of a post "The Little Black Fish" story. The current working title is "The Little Red Fish." It is intended to be a political allegory similar to Animal Farm, but loosely based on the events leading up to the Iranian revolution and primarily following the leftist groups. Below is some of the test on the style and approach. The writing will be done by James Moffitt, a local author who's short stories remind me of magical realism.

Below (click to enlarge) is a test for style, environment and colors. Learning how to draw differently with this project has been very exciting. I feel like I am finally figuring out an approach to drawing and coloring that feels natural to me.

Below (click to enlarge) is a test for a cave that might be revisited multiple times in the story as well as a lighting test for the inside of a cave which might be an important element of the story.
Below (click to enlarge) is a weapons concept session. The point of departure is "what could fish make weapons out of." The scribbling next to the weapons is part of the process where I'm using chance to compose the weapons. The bottom right weapon is a club made with sticks, rope made from vegetation and a marble. The bottom left weapon is a failed attempt at using a drill bit. Heh.
