Orpheus Movie Poster Sketch

Hey all! So yesterday I sat down on worked on a request my brother gave to me earlier this month. I'm drawing out a scene from an Orpheus roleplay he's involved in with his friends! The premise is that the character (John) is projected in the spirit world as a ghost (as people are wont to do in this roleplay), and in the spirit world, John sees himself as a classic noir detective, with the fedora, trench coat, cigarettes and all. Suddenly, he sees an ominous sight-- a rift in reality appears before him, and within that tear is a horrifying scene of an army of specters (the sort of minion-ish bad guys of this game) lined up in formation , getting ready for some sort of battle.

Also there is a GHOST DOG.

I tried to stick close to Steven's original vision:

I love you, Steven.

Anyway, I'll be working on inking it and coloring it today (might bleed over into tomorrow though) since I showed this sketch to my brother already and he seems to like it! Then I've got another illustration to do, and then it's Dana's project for the rest of the week! :) I am glad to be kept so busy (and inspired!) this Summer.

Also, if you happen to be interested in WWII, miniatures, strategy-based games, and especially a combination of all 3, you should check out my brother's Flames of War blog! He is also extremely gifted with musical talent.

This is seriously pretty much the coolest thing ever. I mean, my sketch was hard to top, but I think you almost did it!

Seriously, great job :)
