Ok so the other day I realized I haven't really uploaded anything anywhere for the last year and a half. This made me sad so I started flipping through the last two sketchbooks I filled and found at least a few things that were usable and not just me trying to figure out how to draw hair again after my last hiatus. Anyway, its all pretty basic stuff but opinions and criticism on my chicken scratch would still be welcome if you could spare the time.
This is Kom, a main character from this webcomic project I'm working on. She's a ruskling which is basically a human with a rat-like tail and sharp teeth. She lost her tail so she pretty much gets mistaken for a human whenever she isn't grinning like a lunatic.
The second of the two main characters. Megan is Kom's partner/boss and I haven't thought of a good name for her species yet.
Dorothy is another pretty important character. Shes got a lot of prosthetics going on with both of her arms and legs being mechanical as well as her right eye. This picture might seem really inconsistent but she really just changes her look a whole lot over the course of the story. The bottom-middle picture is of her sporting a more realistic bionic eye and I guess Kom with her old haircut snuck on there too.
Dorothy again. Interchangeable limbs are fun, especially when they are chickenlegs.
Mixed characters this time. The story I'm working on is called Kicks by the way thats not just a random word they're jumping around behind there.
I don't draw big things very often so I thought I'd give it a try. This one makes Kom look tiny but Megan is just kind of raised up a bit there. She actually is the taller of the two but only by about 3 inches or so. Take the "coming soon!" bit with mountainous piles of salt by the way.
I can't believe how smudgy this thing is augghh
Oh god look at that right leg. This picture is a good example of me having no idea what I'm going for when I start drawing and continuing to have no idea as I do it. The anatomy is all over the place, I couldn't tell you what Kom is even doing up there and the whole thing looks weird but I had fun drawing it. Perhaps less Lucozade for me in the future though.
Just another random Dorothy sketch. Remember, kids! If you're too lazy to draw something properly just wrap it in bandages!
In the original Kicks storyline Dorothy was kind of a minor character and this is pretty much what she looked like. She was a 10-12 year old kid living with her parents whose arms and legs hadn't developed properly in the womb and she had the prosthetics all her life whereas today's Dorothy is about 21 by the time the story takes place and got the prosthetics after an accident as a teenager.
Don't worry I'm almost out of sketches for now. While most of the stuff I've been doing lately is Kicks-related theres been a few other things too. So yeah, clockwise from the top-left:
Vesker: My WoW character. Undead rogue, haven't been playing lately so her gear is pretty average. If you're wondering why every other character I draw is a looney then all I can say is that grin is just REALLY fun to draw.
Fran the Rapid Needle: Just a random new swordy character I ended up making without really intending to use her for anything. Kinda like the design though so she might turn up in Kicks at some point.
Ellie Langford from Dead Space 2: Well it was supposed to be her at least but I did most of it without a reference so not so much. Oh well, there it is anyway. I didn't think I'd like her half as much as I did when I started playing but she turned out to be a pretty great character.
Shade the Echidna: Yeah I know. I hadn't drawn Sonic stuff for a while and I'd just finished that Dark Brotherhood game on the DS so I figured I'd try Shade. Pretty cool game, its kind of nice the new character for this one wasn't another bloody hedgehog too.
Ok that's about it. Should have a few more things on the way once my scanner stops being a butt.
