Sunday Sketch 20 – 25 Essential Expressions: Tinuvielle

25 essential expressions challenge - tinuvielle

My 2nd attempt at the 25 Essential Expressions Challenge this time with Tinuvielle. I did Amuletts before and I think I will do Clodin next. It is a good exercise and I think you all know how much I enjoy drawing expressions and putting personality into them. They really make the characters come to life in my opinion. I think this one turned out a lot better than the previous Expressions Challenge. I guess I’m improving.

As always your constructive criticism would be much appreciated.

Sunday Sketch #17 – Crunt

This is Crunt (derived from Crotchety Runt and only coincidentally sounds like a rude word).
He’s like Grumpy (from the Seven Dwarves) but without the charm. This is the dwarf that other dwarves find too offensive to be around. Crunt is not evil (Lawful Good actually), he’s just unpleasant, rude and smelly (he’s afraid of water). It often annoys me in computer RPGs how you are not allowed to role-play a rude character without it being considered evil. Someone can be ill-mannered yet still carry a good heart.

Crunt is the epitome of low Charisma. Now many, many people get low charisma confused with low Comliness – but comliness is how physically attractive/unattractive you are whereas Charisma is about how attractive your personality is. Look out for an example of low Comliness next week when I’ll be doing the concept art for Crunt’s sidekick Fugly.


Sunday Sketch #16 – 25 Essential Expressions

I decided to do this exercise because I love expressions and it is good to practise character consistency. I’m not completely happy with all of them so I’ll probably redraw a few. I might possible ink/color them later… I’m not sure at the moment.
Please do leave me your feedback and constructive critism – I love to hear it and it is very useful.

Sunday Sketch #7: Suicidal Cupid?

Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Sadly I don’t have time to do a special comic for Valentines Day, but I hope you enjoy this. I don’t think he’s try to commit suicide, he just wonders what it would be like to fall in love and is willing to take the risk of getting hurt! Heck, aren’t we all?

Sunday Sketch #6: A Pig in the Hand…

Okay, so it’s not a Sunday, but my computer was crashing like crazy yesterday! Anyway here you go – a tiny little baby pig sitting in someone’s hand – how sweet! And yes, baby guinea pigs really are this small! I think I’ve copied all the picture of my calander that I want too, the others aren’t quite as nice. Or maybe I’ve had my fill of piggys for a while? We’ll see…
