From Archives: Unfinished Electric Dreams story, part 1

These drawings, dating back to late 2009 and early 2010, were my first take to pay homage to Blade Runner and place my own tale in the same universe. You can see my style was a bit different back then. The story would follow a hunter (in the first picture) who gets a job to retire her replica (the second picture), only distinguishable from a missing mole on a cheek and a different haircut. The story was also to feature a male co-star but I never got around to draw him. Eventually he became Adam in Electric Dreams - Beginning, the story which was the reason why this tale was eventually discontinued. The hunter became Xianghua and the hunted Child, as seen in Beginning and who both alongside Adam will be featured in the forthcoming sequel. I thought these drawings were too good to be buried for forever in a desk drawer though, so for the next two weeks I present this unfinished story while finishing a few new projects for my blogs. As far as continuation goes, it's not entirely there because so many planned scenes and characters are missing. I hope you enjoy it altogether! The second part in next week.

Haha I think it's awesome to see something from the past like this and see what it eventually turned into. It's even better to know that it went through a "phase". I especially love the last one, that one screams poster.

I for one can't wait to see the next part in the series. Your stories always keep me coming back! So.....GET ON IT!

You know, that part about the last picture screaming for a poster, my brother got an idea from it; I will make "advance posters" of Electric Dreams - Tomorrow (as the sequel is titled), and post them at my blogs. Gives a whole movie-like atmosphere to the project, as pretty much intended.
