I just read new updates of chapter 3. Chief said that it is illegal to take photos of Cypress officers, or to even mention them in the media. Does that mean that the general public denies the existence of ghosts, like invalids in North Korea?
Haha no their existence is acknowledged :D It’s just personal information about the officers that’s kept unavailable to the public for security reasons, which is why nobody’s allowed to photograph them (this is also done in the real world to some extent AFAIK)
I've been wondering for a while... how is Jon's name pronounced? Is it "Jon" with an English "j" sound (like in bluejay) or is it with an English "y" sound (since I know in different languages, "j" can make a "y" sound). Ahaha sorry for the confusing explanation.
Jon is short for Jonathan
I get what you mean though, I speak a language where j’s are pronounced like y’s so we sometimes pronounce English names & words the “local” way out of laziness :D
What places have influenced you most in designing the world of Phantomland? One review in the net said that Santa Luison's architecture, narrow streets and veranda cafés resemble Middle or Southern Europe, but I also remember you mentioning in Deviantart that you've also looked at Helsinki when designing buildings (especially Cypress HQ).
Uhhm well… I’ve been to cities like London and Amsterdam a couple of times and while I thought I’d aim to take inspiration from them - to have some sort of general “old Europe” aesthetic for Santa Luison - honestly I’m not doing nearly as much research on architecture as I should!
I mostly just ass-pull the buildings I need to draw (so they’re consistent with the plot & action) and I’m obviously subconsciously influenced by Helsinki since that’s where I hang out the most. Helsinki doesn’t have all that much old architecture so it sucks as a reference though
But I think I’ll put more effort to the environments once they become more directly relevant to the story? Right now there’s more focus on character-building than world-building, but I aim to make it more balanced eventually. That said I wish I’d have put a little more thought into Cypress HQ since I’ll be drawing it in almost every chapter. It’s not quite big enough, for one thing :-D
