I’ve had lots of OCs in the X amount of years I’ve been around. Even did a comic of one back in high school that I lost after drawing over 200 pages of it… Since then , the OC thing has really just been an excuse to stuff my portfolio with fantasy, concept, whatever I felt like showing off or just kinda felt at the time.
This time around, I’m trying to actually DO something, again, with one of em. I threw my idea of Tala and the various concepts I’ve had of her at Bennett and let him go nuts with writing. Slowly , and I do mean SLOWLY, I’ve been drawing pages in between work and other things. Also, as shown, I’m seeing how long it really takes to colour these things. I’m not quite sure I’m going to stick with painting the entirety of what gets drawn, or just a few lead-in pages then switch to ink and tone. We’ll see what happens.
So here you go, first 2 pages of the Tala comic and the original drawings.
You may have noticed that I wait to post the Monster Girl pics in groups, but I was happy with this one.
For the “feline”, I just ran with Catwoman. Abused some of the new brushes from Steambot Studios for the background and ran with the Dark Knight motif. Though the Catwoman here is a little bit of old school Julie Newmar more so than Hathaway.
Will post other monsters down the road.
