Turnover Concepts

Hey folks!

Work on my upcoming webcomic, "The Quest for Love with Yoki Safari," has been going well. My main focus right now is tying up loose ends and getting a better understanding for the environments (because I've got a pretty good understanding for the characters at this point, hehe). Today, I share with you some concepts for the little castle town of Turnover, the central setting of the comic.

Turnover concepts

Turnover is super-tiny, consisting of a main castle, surrounding homes (made from old "castle parts") that house the residents, and the seedy underbelly of Turnover, "Dark Turnover." It is not a particularly populated little kingdom, consisting of only a handful of people and located in the middle of a vast desert.

Turnover is located on planet Rockstead. Rockstead is unique in that it has two moons: one is the "hot moon," a source of light and heat for the daytime, and the other is the "cold moon," which is much larger (a concept not illustrated above, unfortunately) moon that causes the nights to be chilly and sort of bright. The left is day, the right is get it. I reckon the cold moon might actually be a full moon at all times, with the hot moon being a crescent moon as illustrated. Still tinkering with the idea, so we'll see.

And of course, there is a circular courtyard in front of the main castle that has a neat little whale fountain. This design isn't finalized...I actually dunno if I want it to be so cute. I might go with something a little more mysterious and stoic, but we'll see what works.

Anyway, lemme know your thoughts!



  1. Awww, I love the design! Also I love the idea of two moons, I can't wait to read Yoki Safari! :D

    PS: You're new blog layout is HIP~~!

  2. Thanks so much! I haven't figured out a release date for the comic yet, but when I know it, everyone else will know it too. ;D

    Also, glad you like the layout of my blog!
