(these two posts are a feed back loop - I posted this so I could share it with my daily sketch blog jpds14 just so I could link one post to the other, because…. beeteedubz, click that link to see the daily sketch versions of them)
i saw this contest where you submitted a 16 page short story that wasn’t the first 16 pages to a longer story, so i decided to make some new characters. I’m not sure if I’m going to do this one or if I might go back to my Close to the Sun story from January.
So the story I was considering was about this hot assassin chick, the woman from the top image. People responded to her more than another one I was leaning a bit more toward.I still like her design, I’m not entirely sure where she’s from, ambiguously Asiatic and Hispanic so we’ll see what happens. Maybe she’s a mixed Asian/Latina. Who knows. The possibilities are nigh endless.
Then today I drew the guy on the bottom, his first drawing is actually the last image in greyscale. I was thinking about drawing a woman but decided to doodle a guy who is this guy. Maybe genderfluid or genderqueer. I keep thinking about him as a guy who’s comfortable in girly clothes, soI’m not entirely sure which is the most correct term.
So these two are assassins. The woman is a sharp shooter and firearm enthusiast. The guy is a knife type and a closequarters type. He is also fond of poison, I don’t know how such a flashy guy literally gets away with moida, but thems the breaks or whatever.
I’m not entirely sure about their relationship, I want them to be friends, I don’t know if it’s more than that. I mean, I designed the woman on Sunday and the guy all of 15 hours ago from my writing this at 11:12 pm. Gimmie a break.
I realize he’s an accidental Bikky from Fake which is weird. I haven’t looked up FAKE for a while, I did reread some of it a few months ago, but I still like the design I came up with, and his bright personality.
