War of the Currents
This week I’ll introduce you to my other visual development idea: War of the Currents. The name right now seems rather generic, but it refers to the so-called “war” between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla in the late 1880’s about which electrical current was superior for conductivity. I’ve been doing some reading on the subject and that has helped me shape this retro future science fiction world; however, unlike “Crimson Candle” I have a much less specific idea about characters and story, and more about world building, which makes it harder for me to think about a titular character or story core for the project. And so, “War of the Currents” seems to be the title that will work for now, but I’m sure the more I develop this idea, the closer I’ll get to the core of the story and maybe a new title (?) Either way, I hope the illustrations below can give you a glimpse of what this world looks like. Enjoy!
