These drawing were more like experimentation and exercises, but when I do them I think a lot about the story behind. The environment becomes so much more interesting and livelier like that. None of them are actually finished, but I want to write down their storiesin order not to forget something.
First goes Teodor. He is the brain of the cliff. He is a great philosopher physicist and alchemist. He adapted Archimedes water system to the place and managed to take control of the steam power coming from the underwater craters. Steam power helps to keep the pressure for the water system and distil water to make it drinkable. His portrait was inspired by Aristotle's Silhouette.
Joe Sewers. He has a deep story. Before he came to the island he was known as a very talented doctor, but something happened and he came to the cliff. He lives in a grotto very close to water on the other and more quiet side of the cliff. Ironically he was given his role on the cliff to take care of the sewers.
Butcher Tim. This guy is funny and loud. He loves animals, grows pigs and makes food out of them. He is not a really got chef, but people number living on the cliff is limited so he has to do it too.
Marry Yellow. Inn keeper. One of the main attractions to the cliff. She has a lot of connections from the past. Her father used to be one of the greatest generals. He owned the fortress on the cliff and died defending it. The cliff was his heritage to her. As soon as she gathered some reliable people she opened the inn. After great success she initiated all great changes and finally built the church from the wreckage of the ruins for the memory of her father. She is tougher then anybody else in the island.
Martin Narcissus. Clerc. He loves business almost as much as himself. He spent almost whole his life around the cliff.
Engel Stone. Craftsman and Blacksmith. He often works with damaged ships and Teodor helps him a lot. He loves sea and listening to Teodor's philosophies.
