the boy and snake

this is teh first of many studies for the graphic novel part of my story.  jim yarbrough is the artist, and the illustrations will be up to him, with me acting as art director.

here jim is exploring the characters of the boy and snake.  the boy is fond of all things military, and ends up in somewhat the role of tsar nicholas.  the two people to his right are unknowns at this point;  jim often does this.  the monk is rasputin, whose illustrious career jim is exploring to enlighten snake’s character.  the three women to his left are hangers-on, part of snake’s charm i guess.  the building in the background is inspired by the works of piranesi.  even the backgrounds will have character arcs in this story.
