Space Lord

Space Lord published on No Comments on Space Lord

One of the projects I had the pleasure of working on was Space Lord, written by Paul Scott for his sci-fi anthology Omnivistascope.

The eponymous Space Lord was a tyrant who, having subjugated most of the galaxy, devoted himself to his hobby: creating small press comics.
Naturally, this was a subject dear to both my own heart and Paul’s as well; everything Space Lord experiences as he prowls the conventions, looking for sales and favourable reviews, is based on our own experiences of the UK small press and self-published comics scene of the time.

I recall creating a similar diminutive dictator many, many years ago, long before I started my own small press comics. While I don’t think I even have those original drawings any more for comparison, I’m pretty sure I based my design of Space Lord on my memories of that proto-overlord, combined with elements from Paul’s initial sketches to arrive at the final design.

I have a fondness for RPGs so, a long while ago, I sketched out a trio of cartoon critter adventurers. I eventually worked out a story for them to appear in and added a fourth character (Sacerdote) so they would have a balanced party.

Feiticiero, the rabbit sorceror.
Lutadora, the mouse fighter and her magic sword Espada.
Larapio, the fox thief.

Oh, and don’t forget about Sacerdote, the sheep priest, standing at the back.

They first appeared in colour on the back of Bahala Na! 05, but I ignored that completely so their colour schemes are probably a little different here.

Daffy, Psyche and Ginger pose for a selfie on Daffy’s new phone. Psyche was not impressed by Daffy’s attempt at using a selfie-stick.

They’ve changed a little since their first appearance in Catgirl Comicbook Convention Crisis! but I think I’ve settled on their colour schemes now.
