I created 'charactr' mainly as a way to force myself to draw regularly, to a deadline. OK...i missed the first deadline by an hour or two, but it was the first one I ran.
These are the three silhouettes that I submitted for the first stage. Th guy with the antlers won, though I was kind of routing for the TV head bloke with the shopping trolley.
Always had a lot of the Slough Feg; Horned God from Slaine [2000AD] in this idea. The original Slough Feg was inspired by a cave drawing from France of a shaman with antlers on, so that is what I looked at for this',
Next stage; I Photoshopped a quick guide for the final drawing. Yes I know the model is a girl, but the pose works. Hips and shoulders at nice angles [death to symmetry]. Loving the antlers.
A3 pencil rough on trace with a rubbish right arm. Left arm not much better,...
The bio to the character refers to drawing graffiti using moss blended with buttermilk to make living graffiti. No idea where I first heard of that but I really must try it one day.
charactr #2; Emaciated Jungle Explorer is now underway. Back to the drawing board...
No rest for the wicked!
