A small drawing I did for the dudes over at Drawforce. They do a monthly drawing topic and compile it all into a group blog. The topic for September was samurai. I've been thinking about salamanders recently. What is their deal.
I almost never do one-off character drawings anymore, but that is literally all I did for most of my adolescence. It feels weird to draw a character without an environment or context, but it's also an interesting challenge to try and pack as much narrative as possible into a design. Some different things become prioritized.
I took a character development class with Brian Ralph my junior year of college which really did a lot of good for my work and my sense of humor.
