It was brought to my attention the other night that several of my characters didn't have proper bio sheets. So spent a while remedying that.

I still think Oliver is adorable which is a bad thing considering what I want to do to characters that I like. >_<

Hello all, some great art on these pages (Oliver Otter looks a dapper chap above, also liked the deer dryideabat, deer are hard to draw!), as I'm new I thought I'd contribute and post a few bits I've been working on, more for my own amusement really, any comments welcome :-) .

Tristan is a fox, the idea with the strip is in each one he would "try" a different activity, these activities would not be connected and be purely on whatever I think up at the time. As you can see our hero is pretty easy going and unflappable (or you could just say I'm lazy and didn't bother changing his expression).

Done to get me used to some new graphics software (I usually draw by hand). Anyway let me know what you think, I may do some more sometime when the whim takes me.

I've mentioned once earlier that I'm rather active on a fan discord for Zootopia, and decided to finally bite the bullet and try to see how Rocky would look in the style. This took a few days and there is plenty that needs to be done to make him match, but screw it, I don't want to stress myself over this too much again. So here he is.

Going with the idea that he'd get or modify shirts to have an extra large opening for his brace.

I am very stubborn and really didn't want to remove his brace or gem.

Very nice work on the anatomy, D-Rock. Hey, as the song says, try everything.

Beautiful comic DDeer. I think that view of the countryside looks great. It succeeds in conveying a sense of vast serenity away from the cramped bustling subways (can't say I miss those).

Here are a couple of test sketches. In this first one, can you guess the name of all 4 video game characters?

Now, for this one, I never had time to really get into the series, Aggretsuko. But there was something about Haida's voice (English dub) that I like :lol: .

I am heavily considering making Macabre in the style as well.

That picture of all of those game characters. If Kingdom Hearts was game-centered as opposed to Disney-centered. Looks nice! And have yet to take the time to watch Aggrestsuko myself, but yeah, Haida was a pretty popular character on account of his voice actor, Ben Diskin.

Yep, a group of bros who have dealt with interdimensional travel.
And hence why I drew Haida in that pose. :lol: I now imagine him crossing into the other picture.

Nice answer. Touches base on a number of interesting themes. Even in the netherworld, not all is pure black. Infernals can feel remorse doing their jobs (it's good to be bad here) and are not just evil for the sake of being evil.

Here's a funny scenario that popped into my head. I was not sure which characters it should involve. Yes, this seems crazy for even Heidi, but here she approaches Macabre with a gift in the underworld. I'm curious how Macabre would react to such an offer, though I'd imagine that it would not perturb him much, enough that he would calmly ask the right questions.

Heidi: "Hi there Macaroni. I found this and thought you might like it as a helmet."
Macabre: "The name's Macabre and thanks, but I already got a helmet." (How did she get in here?)
Heidi: "Really? Aw oh well, maybe it can make a nice cookie jar or something."
Macabre: "Where did you find this?"
Heidi: "I saw it lying on the street and picked it up."
Macabre: "...You see a severed head and the first thing you do is pick it up?"
Heidi: "Yeah. No use letting it go to waste."

Which, of course, begs the obvious question, "If it doesn't do to waste, where does a severed head go?"

Thanks, man! And yeah, I’d say you got Macabre’s personality down here just right. :lol:

Gee, Heidi, nothing phases you, does it? How thoughtful of her, though.

He is ... and antlers are really tricky which is why you don't see a lot of well-drawn bucks in the comics.

Thanks for all the encouraging comments, glad you like it, yes think I need to tone down the blue in the antlers, know what you mean about a third antler, something is not right about the positioning and perspective I think, when I get time I may have another crack at them. I noticed there aren't many stags featured in comics, now I see why!

I like the color, honestly. and yeah, I have a jackalope character, those horns are weird, and I went with a more "basic" design.

In the end, though, it's all a journey for you to find what you like most, and like drawing most.

Any images of the Jackalope on the thread? Like to see how you tackled it. So I had a bit of time this weekend so I set too and redid the antlers looking at photos of real deer for ref, let me know what you think, an improvement methinks :D .

Looks pretty good, and a pretty well-discernible curve to the back antlers. My jackalope has just basic antlers. viewtopic.php?p=915322#p915322
