we'll be right back..

Took the weekend off from character-a-day, still shaking off plaguey remnants. Might start posting concept material every day instead of characters if I decide to pursue a graphic novel project. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Number 16. Sorta more western cyberpunk than steampunk. He's like a cross between Van Helsing and Captain Harlock. Fear his redness! About 2 hours sketch + color in potatoshop. Tried to ink this one like some of the first characters but it kind of lost something in translation. I wonder where this experiment will lead me. :p

Is the one i messed up from yesterday. Still pretty sketchy, but I think i'll end up spending way too many hours on it if i try to detail out all the tech. She's got some kind of crazy propulsion device. Anywayyys. Did like a 30 min thumbnail and then spent an hour sketching over the top of the thumbnail.


She's an armed escort! Get it? Nyuk nyuk.
A different steampunk char was taking a little too much time, maybe i'll post her tomorrow, so instead tonight i did this doodle of a steampunky redheaded western brothelgirl, kinda based on an old character. Took about an hour in photoshop.

Okay! Back in the game. Here's number 13. I decided this week is steampunk week. I figured if one of them went really well i might submit it for the latest CHOW over at But steampunk is just fun anyhow.
Tried a cooler palette and didn't ink over my digital sketch. Yay!

He's kind of a rich philanthropist guy with a tinkering hobby :p And a fascination with minerals. I was inspired by the inventor/uncle character in Young Sherlock Holmes. Wanted to mess around with some different body types. About 1 hr 45 mins, all in photoshop.

Char number ten! Inspired by Seventh Sanctum prompt and also an old catguy character I had. The prompt was like, a confident anthro-cat spaceman. Mine looks more skittish, meh. Took about an hour and a half blue sketch + photoshop. I think my line quality is finally starting to go somewhere, although I don't like this one as much as the last two.

Number 9! He's a snooty victorian man. Inspired by my Eyewitness book on Costume history. I think he needs some checkered pants but I'm kind of lazy. 1-2 hours sketch + photoshop.

Number 8! She's a half-demon soldier. Guess I went the more friendly-demon route. Generated by S.S. Took about 1.5 hrs for sketch + inks. Pencil and photoshop. Trying some different things with line weight.
