Got stuck with Boxhead so decided to make T and Eris still a WIP, Eris has her wires cut and bound but I need to epoxy and dress her, she is currently only a head – T needs finishing.
The idea was to make them look as similar to my comic doodles as poss, pen colour and fine liner edge like borderlands cosplay cell shading. I covered all the fabric for his outfit in latex and once dried just coloured him in, loving the Spectrum Noir pens they draw on tons of tings.
I even made him a backpack with his own T + Eris print using the MOO stickers I order with the comic doodles on. I know him, so I just made the outfit up on the fly and it was a happy unplanned process, I guess his like the doodles. His an armature doodled 🙂
So I’ve made his/her armature, for a picture ABC book I wanted to make for my sisters twins, for Christmas. It’s weird because when I was little I was really upset by the four faced people in Never Ending Story. I don’t remember this but my mum must have told me at some point, I must have made a fuss and gotten upset. Boxhead is from an idea from a while ago based of a single image of an ice cream cone melting in someones back pocket, I guess working off the notion of trying to keep things you can’t. Turns out four faces still scare me and I like the odd but it is quite possible this little dude is too much for the picture book for Lexie and Cadence.
With no real idea of were to go next with this, I made Eris and T’s heads and have started their armatures for no real reason other than I enjoy the process, sitting at my workbench making them. Boxhead’s face was borrowed for them, so I guess its only fair they borrowed it back. Hoping to refine and get better at the process.
Meet The Sisters who have always been a fascination of mine.
SPIN – MEASURE – SPIN
Prompted by Masse’s big win, Eris takes T for the nit bitch he is LESSAFUCKINGO 🙂Typography just mapped for now
I’ve decided not to edit as I go, gonna just keep drawing, then select and reject, once I have the majority of the frames for the panels – It’s half a plan 🙂
*edit – I lost the look of their faces last week and all eyes were too close together, so have completed a quick updated version (I can’t not edit as I go but I won’t reject till the end, as fresh eyes see new wonders.)
