Specifics on what i aim for and progress (below)

Goal:
First issue with several chapters (long enough to be a hardcover visual novel).
Themes: Friendship, dealing with hardships and trauma, finding purpose with or without others included.
Setting: industrial, semi-apocalyptic steampunk world in which persons need to work hard/stick together to survive or reach their goals.
Additionally, people have different animalistic traits (making them anthropomorphs in different stages (1-4) of transfomation from human form).
Tone: Grimdark and horror, sprinkled with humor and emotional/psychological drama. Aiming for pg16-eske mixture of significant but reasonable brutality and wicked and suggestive moments without it being the driving factor, only applied when it makes sense to the story and the characters. No forced/explicit erotic material, it will be wicked and boundary-breaking enough without it.

Spoiler-free summary (back cover) text:
Young Lev always dreamed about being special, like every child born in this harsh world full of sharks and rhinos. But like many he needs to work long bone-screwing shifts for just barely enough pay to buy food or to lend out beloved books to feed his imagination. One day he recognised new posters on the pipes around him: something special, weird and indisputable compelling is coming to town...

Done:
Concept
Main story plot and some intertwined character arcs.
Most of the character designs finished.
World background/setting and main lore.
Decision on and fleshing out art style and colorisation.
About 10% of panel skribbles.

When i am back at my work station i start producing more visual content and work out some details of the plot.
Also next on the to-do list: logo and front cover art.
