BONUS CONTENT: Sketchbook: Dhama Hes

June 24, 2010

The design for Dhama Hes (The Big Snow Job #1, Page 18) was a lot of fun as I wanted him to be very alien and creepy. So I played with some odd proportions (like the very high waist such that he practically has no torso) and weird textures (like the knobby hand palms and mass of thin tentacles for the lower body). And there was something about the spinal ridge on his back shell that was kinda unnerving to me, since it had the appearance of exposed vertebrae.

Looking at the sketches again now, I apparently meant to do some sort of spotted pattern on portions of the upper body shell and arms. Whoops. That’s the problem with leaving some things out at the pencil and ink stage. There’s a good chance I might forget to do those details when I actually get to the coloring stage many months later. Oh well.

Kickstarter: Character Card Samples

February 20, 2013

Getting very close to launch!! Here are some samples of more rewards: 4×6″ character cards. There will be 8 different cards, each featuring a duo of Snow Job characters. The lower reward tiers will come with one random card (which makes for a nice bookmark), but all mid-level and higher tiers will come with a complete set of 8.

It’s been a lot of fun drawing these characters again, especially the Preegans (left) and Dhama Hes (middle), who only appeared in the first chapter of the story. So it’s been a long while since I’ve had the chance to draw them! It’s like revisiting old friends. Old weird, tentacle-y friends.
