Above is a development sketch. My nine-plus years of service in the valet industry have got me stuck on this idea for a space valet comic. This is me trying to flesh out some ideas. The central globe is an interstellar rest-stop. The ships enter the empty central area and are then parked out on the "flats" orbiting the rest stop.
Despite not knowing really where to go with this idea, I got this undeniable urge to paint! What a wonderful feeling! This is watercolor on watercolor paper.
The rest-stop is brightly colored with lights and such. I feel like it would have a casino at the top and the employees live in the bottom. (Although there isn't really a top or bottom since it's a sphere... but I haven't figured that one out yet.)
Finished sketch after I added some gouache, an opaque watercolor, to make some darks in the background.
If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to leave a comment or email me!
