Not much of a "promo" since most likely a lot of time is gonna pass before I'll start working on this, but I wanted to "reserve" to myself the name (which... being a single word won't mean much, and I'm pretty sure that there's something else with the same name already, but let me live my delusions, 'kay?) and so, here I am announcing this webcomic + original card game made entirely by me.
The setting is going to be what I'd call "steam-powered cyberpunk". What does that mean? First of all, the year is 1899, however the technology of the time is extremely advanced, while stuff that wouldn't yet exist at the time (like portable phones, computers, holograms, levitation and so on) are pretty much a novelty and rather rudimentary. Heck, most of the computers don't even have a UI and work mostly via command line. But they have holographic screen, so all's cool.
Anyway, if we get even MORE precise, the focus will be on a race of anthropomorphic dragons (named "draconians") in a Country resembling the England in the Victorian Era.
The main character (on the left) is Syrion Coleridge, one that TV Tropes would call "Insufferable Genius": extremely smart, one of the best students of his school, but completely unwilling to socialize with anybody, rejecting with sharp sarcasm, for the most part, everyone trying to get too close. However, he's a fair and honest person, and he doesn't have high tolerance for injustices. But, one day, he meets Dimetra Pilewick (right). She's the exact opposite of him: extremely friendly and likes to socialize with others, and she's determined to make Syrion come out of his spiked shell. She'll try to drag him everywhere to make that happen and, naturally, a recently released collecting card game will be one of the things that will tie everyone together.
However, in the end, everybody hide something...
This picture is made by 4 full body images, then assembled together in this. The assembling took me more time than I expected because I couldn't make up my mind with the background. But I'm satisfied enough, so everything's good.
