A "What if..." for Fast Sundays

(Warning: Read the comic before reading the following text!!) This comic was made with Fast Sundays in mind, obviously. I'm not saying anyone should invent flavored envelopes, but I think it would be hilarious if someone did. Not only would you avoid getting that nasty glue breath on Fast Sundays, but you'd probably have tons of people lining up to pay their tithing just to lick the envelopes. If these envelopes existed, my favorite flavor would have to be spearmint. Yum! (Also, I've added the same technique to this comic as I did to the character illustrations I've posted previously).

Character #2: The Blacksmith

Here is now my second attempt at drawing, inking and coloring yet another fantastical character. This time around I decided to go with a much more masculine character, the good ol' blacksmith. The type you go to when your armor and weapons are in need of repair, and the person who can fix the busted horseshoe from your horse. Decked out in studded leather and medieval steal-toed boots, nothing stands in the way of this determined blacksmith especially when he has an oversized hammer in his hands.

Character #1: The Priest, the Healer

It is time to reveal more of my "nerd" side by showing fantasy type characters I've illustrated from my sketch book. I'm a big fan of the blogs that are able to post a new sketch or drawing every other day if not everyday. It's fun, fresh, and admirable to witness artists achieve this task. As much as I'd like, I can't produce any worthwhile sketches even close to that frequency so instead I'm just going to post drawings of characters in no particular timed fashion. This way I can practice creating characters, inking them and then coloring them in the computer. In a way it's an experiment so we'll see where it takes me. Don't worry though, I'll still be posting comics in the meantime. (I've now posted two versions of the same image. The one on the left has nothing special done to it. The one on the right has had some light texture and noise added to the colors plus the black line is more of a dark brown. What do you think?)
