A Lonely Home in Hong Kong

A lot of scenes in volume 1 take place in Valentin’s and Chains’s apartment, centered in the midst of an area that’s had a bit more paranormal activity and strange happenings lately.

Yeah…a little bit…

While Valentin’s particular building seems to be in relatively decent shape, you might see why he got cut a deal for this location. Though at a glance, and considering his position in life, you’d think he wouldn’t be so cheap.

At least it’s better on the inside. Marginally. (Though Chains isn’t the neatest of people.)

Fun fact: I developed Valentin’s apartment in SketchUp for the purpose of drawing things in it from any imaginable angle, taking out the mystery and a lot of the effort that would be involved in drawing it over and over again. After all, I didn’t want to limit backgrounds or any possible dynamic approaches to paneling.

I even made it more detailed, inserting furniture resources like Valentin would own, fixtures, and resizing/adjusting things to fit proportionally and size-appropriately. I could view it then in any way!

I can even do angles like this!

Here are some more shots, including wireframes and the original floor plans:

I had a lot of fun with it. This will be a big help when the comic gets going next year!
