After many interruptions I have begun to seriously work on The First Fear again. Here is a preliminary sketch of Shakti, the lead character. Lots to be worked out, but it suggests the direction I would like to go with the character.
"We are called the First Fear. Humans knew fear before us, but we were something different. Not of the natural order. Otherworldly. A new kind of fear."
Sorry about the radio silence. I have been dealing with family issues for the last couple of weeks and will continue to do so, in a big way, this week. But I am determined to get back on the comic book. Research has continued and I have narrowed down the facial characteristics of my alien vampyr lead to about 12 types. Sketches appearing soon.
