Scribble of the Day

Just a quick one for today, last night I scrawled out the general outline of the Six Species emblem.

The Six Species

Harmony. Or a whole bunch of people just got eaten.

Something tells me I should have three Molranoid outlines, maybe concentrically? I doubt the Molren would appreciate any suggestion that they are the same species as the Blaren and the Bonshooni. Would be easy enough to add a couple of interior lines there.

I’m also still trying to decide whether or not that interior space would look better filled in. Maybe it would, to give it a two-layer shadow / white space effect.

Anyway, this is a nice simple design to, I don’t know, work onto the back of a coin or something.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
