Hugo Poses

Just some Hugo poses from previous pieces. At the Academy, the hoodie jacket with the ring is worn by underclassmen, and the color corresponds with their discipline. Upperclassmen have lapels and the ring moves to their belt (like Marco).

The tie and vest is what they wear when they're in class and not doing actual field work... and they can wear whatever they want to bed lol, the sweats are not uniform.

Rearranging Destiny

This is a sequence of drawings from my sketchbook when I was playing with ideas of how Gears of Destiny could be handled without hurting the engineer. Flux Destiny: Fortuna's Rings describes Gears of Destiny as too hot to safely hold, especially when pulled directly from the Great Machine.

Here, Hugo telekinetically removes the Gears from the Great Machine, rearranges them and plunges them back into the earth, causing a Flux Destiny.

Hugo's Ring

While writing Flux Destiny: Fortuna's Rings, I made heavy use of my sketchbooks. A lot of the time, it would be to make quick, crude sketches to get an idea out of my head, or visualize a concept. I wouldn't worry too much about the quality of the art, it isn't really intended for the public, but more so for planning. (I should note that making these behind-the-scenes posts makes me more self-conscious about my quick doodles).

A Rupture

In Flux Destiny: Fortuna's Rings readers learn about ruptures and tears. Both are rips in the fabric of spacetime that exposes the Gears of Destiny, however ruptures refer to holes that occur naturally because of forces imposed by the malfunctioning of the Great Machine or powerful Flux Destinies. Tears are manmade holes like the ones Hugo and Lucky are capable of creating.

Marco and Hugo are expelled from the University's exclusive Academy and forced to travel the empire to fix these ruptures that seem to be popping up all over Fortuna. In this early concept sketch I was trying to illustrate intense pressure that would force these huge gears into the real world... like the Universe is coming apart at the seams.

I really liked this Hugo character art I did for a Flux Destiny mini-comic. I've been using the mini-comics as a way to try different types of clothes, and practice drawing folds in material. That one strand of hair that's misplaced was fun to draw... I feel it shows the dimension of his head.
