Self-Initiated Project Story & Character
The idea that I have in mind for the self-initiated project is inspired by the Chinese myth about the underworld and reincarnation. The story is set after the end of the world, and the premise is that the protagonist, who is the last human to die, is trying to cross over Naiheqiao (the bridge to hell) to get reincarnated. At the beginning, the protagonist seems like an explorer travelling through the North Pole, but we quickly see that she is actually walking through the underworld.
I want to keep the story short so that I can focus more time on each drawing and also so that it reads like a fairytale or an excerpt from a myth.
