I will be creating my interpretation of the strange being that introduces the main character to the world. While the source material describes him as a "man" I have decided to take some liberties and make him an alien who travels space and time collecting ornate objects and relics from the 1900s. He has brought David to join him on an urgent expedition that could change the fate of his world...
Right now I'm just collecting reference material of 1900s clothing and decorative items. This will be my first Polycount contest so I'm really excited to get started. I hope to post some WIP images soon.
My intent was not to really make this a "man". I considered it an alien all along. I have changed the story to reflect it. Thank you for pointing that out I can't wait to see your progress. I love where your story is going.
