Cookie the Barbarian
Here’s another recent piece I finished just for my own fun.
This is a still from an animated feature I’m working on called “Bobo The Grim Versus Candy Land”…
OK… I’m joking… This is really just a personal piece I did based on an idea I had for a comic book that I’ll probably get to in a couple years if that (too busy with other projects at the moment). I wanted to do an experiment. Animation is a HUGE influence on my work. So I tried to emulate that look with the characters colored flatly as if they were finished on an animation cel placed on a painted background. I’m pretty happy with how the experiment turned out and plan on doing more pieces like this.
A cool thing I got out of this is that it incorporates the style I’ve been working in for the past couple years with the style I worked in previously. This illustration melds my two styles in a way that makes sense to me. I hope you dig it.
30 Characters In 30 Days: Day 15 ~ November 15, 2010
If people looked more closely at the goings-on in their gardens, they might notice a primeval society still ruled by sword and sorcery. They also might notice one of its champions, Steve the Snail Barbarian. Unfortunately, no one notices. So, Steve’s heroic deeds are only sung in gastropod halls.
