Though initially not meant to be included, I decided to include an extra double page spread giving a little exposition regarding the global conflict that my characters are currently involved in. I thought this would also be an appropriate double page for the previous pages to transition to before continuing with the main story. This is the first page done so far.
Use of lighting played an especially big role while I was creating this view of Earth from space. This is also my first attempt at illustrating a space scenario, with a little inspiration taken from The War of the Worlds.
The origins of these extra terrestrial invaders known as the Xikaeda Plague and their objective are purposely left ambiguous for now.
