Up and Ahead Sketches by Skailla Up and Ahead Sketches by Skailla
Hey guys!! :heart:
I took a small break from working to compile an Up and Ahead sketch dump!
It's been a while since I did one of these, and I realized I hardly ever posted anything related to Up and Ahead's supernatural lore.
Here you have some of the wolf designs from the comic. They're mostly tribal, but I'm not taking any tribe or nationality in particular, since I'd like them to have their own identity! They're based on native Americas, native Brazilians and a bit of too many things! Their own thing, I hope!

Aaand some of the supernatural beings who wander around the strange lands and dark woods of Gold Marrow. 
I wonder how Steban, Martin and the crew will deal with this inevitable encounter!
They play a quite a role in the comic's main plot, although it does not show in the pilot. At all. 

Anyway, what a way to start October! Pumpkin
I hope you have an AWESOME week ahead of you!
I really miss being around you guys! T^T

PS: thank you SO much for sending me notes and participating on the fanart feature of the pilot's printed edition! It means a lot and I'll soon reply to your note!! :heart:

That thing is almost a Necromorph or some other undead by appearance, but I believe You intend to present them as Spiritual beings (ghosts) of some sort.

I love the tribal designs. It's also interesting to see Steban afraid for a change. I love how they use skulls and feathers as special masks. Can't wait to see them as characters of your comic in action.

that one deer looking one almost reminds me of a Wendigo!

Hopefully Steban and Martin won't have to face anything like that!

YES! :la:
His context is a bit different than what you normally see around Wendigos, but that's what's awesome about them, you can't really tell what their true nature is!
