Cosmic Kama Comic - Concept Art
Working things out on my kama sutra-ish inspired comic I have planned for the new year.
As I was doing the research on it I learned that Cosmic is the same word as Brahma so my Cosmic Kama Comic translates to Brahma Kama in Sanskrit. Brahma means a number of things, but primarily it is the Creator, Cosmos, All, The Divine and Kama which means Love, Desire.
I still have to read the Kama Sutra!
I hope to bring both humor and the spiritual aspects of it too in fun ways - it's mostly a framework for me to explore a lot of different ideas around sexuality. I am still figuring it all out. Want to just start with the artwork and inspiration and develop it. Concepts, designing and problems solving is a strong suit of mine, so it's fun to create settings and characters to be able to tell the story I want but doing concept art is not and I tend to be very impatient. This is not the project for that.
Many years ago I designed an entire space station...and some of the ideas I had for that will probably make their way into this comic. But I have new ideas too!
The Shakti is small space ship suitable for no more than 3 or 4 living persons plus robots. The main deck is part bridge, part boudoir, and throughout the ship the pathways are all glass enclosed waterways with fisheries, There is plenty of indoor farming and water is kept flowing and moving through waterfalls and recycled through plant systems. The ship itself is designed after a yurt and other dome homes. I am keeping the colors in magenta, purples, greens and blues.
I wanted to have characters that could reflect the LGBTQ and non-binary communities.
NB2021AI (Enbe for short) is a Transformer/Transhuman that can adjust their sexuality or gender depending on their mood or what works best in the moment.
I have illustrated this one in their Cheer & Chasten mode, but there are also service modes, and who knows what else!
Other characters in the story are Buzz Rightgear an Earth explorer whose ship explodes, but he is rescued by The Shakti Deva. Deva means Goddess and that will be both the title and name I think. Like Captain.
