I did some more that I wanted to show you, continuing to experiment with this simplistic and self-expressive style.
It’s self-expressive because it carries on with my impulse to record feelings and moments that I want to capture and the lining colour, as well as the extra details, is a reflection of that feeling. The muscle-man tells that muscles don’t compare to real, practical muscle and it’s comical of the typical “meathead” as they’re called around here. Another one to mention is the sleeping fella, whom resembles me and my consistent bouts of fatigue when I get up in the morning.
Like I said, it’s simplistic and self-expressive so although it’s cartoony and most often comical, it’s also personal :).
Here’s another welcome addition to the family, hope you like him.
I’ve played around a bit with some shadow and just thought to add a bit of texture to make him a little different from the rest. I’m halfway through my set, yay me!
I had some time to flex my drawing skills in between college work and video games, so I draw another design/idea for the Animal Kingdom (as it says in the title). It’s quite befitting to give this to the beaver, since they do gnaw trees to help create their dams.
I kept it in pencil since I thought using ink would ruin the sketchy quality of it… Besides, I think it looks good as it is and for a quick sketch, it’s pretty detailed. Hopefully it’s accurate enough so you can see it resembles a beaver. I gave him a woodland-style hat and a hatchet, even though they use teeth naturally, but since I’m humanising and taking the concept literally that it’s befitting for this character.
Heroes made among the stars,
Strength to take up arms.
With widespread calamity,
Seems like machine and magic,
A beautiful glow.
A game for ages,
A story for all to tell,
A dream for future.
