The inspiration for this series came from playing Journey by thatgamecompany. Journey is a trademark of Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC.

Questions that came up while drawing this set based on Inktober20 word prompts:

  • How do you draw someone ”throwing” if they have no hands? As far as I know, the Wayfarer character is never shown with hands – at least not in the way we typically associate with humanoids. But then again, the Wayfarer is more of a Being than a humanoid.
  • What kind of prejudices are you expressing when you visualise ”disgust”? The world of the Wayfarer is serene. Shadows of violence and sadness are present. But disgust? That implies judgement. And few of those judgements are made explicit. More room is made for players’ own interpretations. So maybe the Wayfarer is occationally damning sand grains finding their way everywhere… or maybe that reaction is way out of character.
