This project saw me working with fellow creatives:
@dantelorde @daisyhrlock @willchester00 @joshcastle1379 and @hazeleye_art
Together the 6 of us made Solomon's Seal, a story following the sparse bloodline of the Solomon Family as they chase down a millennia old family curse.
The original idea followed long discussions of what kind of group project we wanted to create. We wanted something that linked in more than just a theme. We raised the idea of creating a generational story like Jojo's bizarre adventure where each of us would take a generation of a family and make a long story out of it. This matched up with some of the other ideas around the table of wanting a space theme or a cowboy theme both of which could be achieved by doing this multi-generational story.
We also conceptualised the story of this family all being told to the youngest generation. We originally started with the idea of each of us drawing a child and having 6 children who the story is being told to but we agreed that was far too complex and Daisy took the final chapter and designed Quinn. We all agreed to dedicate a page to Quinn being shown our respective protagonists in a family gallery before being thrown into the story of each chapter and then Daisy's chapter would seal off the story as Quinn.
I was the one to suggest we do a family of monster hunters as it added an easy means of conflict for each chapter, we later broadened to just a family of adventurers though most of us still stuck to the monster hunter idea.
From the branch of this being a world full of monsters, we came up with the curse and the artefact. The curse states that "When a firstborn Solomon turns 10 years of age, their parents are doomed to meet their end" the artefact splits into 5 pieces and each of us besides Hazel's protagonist who breaks it in the first place would put a piece of the broken artefact in our story and then Quinn would compile them all at the end to finish the curse.
