Afterlife Progress

A quick sketch of Julia with some character notes.

A quick sketch of Julia with some character notes.

So, I got bored the other night and started working on Julia’s character. I looked back at the old chibi I did (which was super generic of me, now that I look back at it) and decided to redesign her. I also decided that being just a sweetheart with slightly stubborn tendencies and a high-stress job that she reacts ridiculously well to just wouldn’t work. I won’t go into too much detail here, but just about everything here is just background info. Julia’s story actually begins at her funeral. Everything that happens is based on her past, but tweaked to amplify her faults. After all, it’s no fun if your main character is flat and has no real personality to them, right?

Unless it’s something like the Persona games. In which case, a silent hero is actually a good thing.

Afterlife – The First Sketch Derp

Just some random doodles based on my current writing project, "Afterlife."

It just occurred to me, as I was pulling this up, that I haven’t even introduced Afterlife and here I am, getting ready to share some derp about it.

So, what exactly is Afterlife?

It’s a novel WIP of mine (at least, I’m hoping it comes out novel-length) about a young woman named Julia who wakes up at her funeral. Well, not really wakes up. Her spiritual form becomes conscious at her funeral. When she comes to, she finds herself confronted by a woman who claims that Julia has a second life to live, one that will determine whether she goes to “heaven.” But, in order to get there, Julia has to face down her greatest fears and weaknesses.

I’m still developing a lot of the story and characters and what I have here isn’t everything, but it is the gist of it all. I’m in love with these characters and, if I ever get a chance, I’d love to finish it.

More info to come in later posts~! :3
