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?)

The one on the right is more interesting to look at. The texture reminds me of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Don't get me wrong, people can tell the difference between your style and Zelda. Overall, it's a good drawing and a great idea for an experiment!

The texture adds a nice feel. I see this being implemented a lot more in this style of art. As for the brown line....Oh yeah. I like brown lines over black, except when it obviously needs to be black. Not the case here. Brown is a really good choice. Again, great image. :)
