Anyways, no time for anything deep, so I figured I would just post extra art. Today though, I'm doing something a lot of people keep asking me to do-- show my creative process. No real magic..I just do a bunch of scribbles to get the feel of what I want; look at some pics to get inspiration(thank you Google); and do a finished piece.
Today's subject is a character called Tusk, also from A Hero's Diary and an entry into the upcoming Street Team Universe Guide. This character was co-created by me and Koran Curtis, and is a particularly nasty fella who lives in Philly's sewers and subway tunnels, doing dirty sewer and subway things.
|Starts with a rough sketch to get the body type and/or specific features down. In this case we were thinking of making him disfigured and misshapen.|
|Went away from the misshapen, just...different. Thought of giving him a mask and making him the leader of a (literal) underground gang. I don't know what the HELL that thing is in the right corner.|
|Cleaned up the scan a little. Not sold on the design though.|
|Tweaks...going back to just slightly misshaped. Still thinking about a mask or some kind of weird element to his face. Like Faust from Guilty Gear.|
And that's it. More details on this guy will be dropping in a month or so.
Now, it's on to the next one..some sketches and a special project called PORTAL!
"This is the Book of Eli years, where lost artwork is the sacred prayers/
And where our work is here/ in libraries that span a 1000 acres/
Yet endangered so pages is buried in craters/
Surrounded by morlocks and lasers/Bio-marauders and gators/
Only reached by sideways moving, geo-fueling elevators..."-Geist
