Twilght Scooter Angels (Character Development)


#1

Striking while the iron is hot to start developing my 2D Spectacular piece into a comic.

This thread for character sketches & designs.

I want lots of characters who have deep backgrounds to make the ‘background’, especially of the street scenes, more believable in terms of story-telling. The piece as a whole is to have a central theme of ‘solidarity’ running through it… in one form or another.

I feel that if the reader identifies positively with more than a manageable ammount of characters, they might become more attuned to be sympathetic toward the ‘whole’.

The characters in this piece are a young Romeo and Juliet who live in the lead characters neighbourhood… (their families hate each other as naturally as breathing - caused by a generation-old dispute over a lawnmower).

Shadowing the pair - caught in the flash of an advertising projector - is one of the leading field operatives of the Twlight Scooter Angels ~ ‘Blind’ Hugo Geoghan, (so called because his many defeated enemies know that even if he was blind - he’d still have kicked their arses)

Hope to update this nonsense very regularly after the New Year. All comments, ideas, criticism and antagonism welcome.

Omm, that is a very cool style :thumbsup: I like the colour & lines, kinda crazy and spontaneous which I guess was what you were aiming for…?

Just experimenting with my new drawing tablet, so most of the initial roughs will be speed drawn like this - also playing with typography and how characters might ‘interact’ with some of it (it will hopefully be a comic one day after all!). Thanks for your comments.

Primarily a user of Bagua and Kapuera, this Field Expert occasionally even finds himself using good old kung fu.

Detail: ‘Boy’

The current love-torn owner of the magical skateboard which ‘Blind’ Hugo is sworn before death to protect.

THe whole scene. I hope the colour and lighting suggests that ‘Blind’ Hugo is the couples’ shadow - and that he is somehow ethereally linked to the skateboard… and that the skateboard gives strange powers to its’ rider.

Advice warmly received about how better this may be achieved.
