Not quite sure why the name pops up for this one, but Iíve been taking to calling them that as I started finishing this piece. Itís the first time Iíve ever went and done inking in Manga Studio EX4ÖI rather like it. I need to mess around with it more for line-art, but I am always going to be partial to Photoshop for my weird brush colors.
This started out as a doodle of a character thatÖhasnít quite found their place yet. I know I want to weave them into the comic Iím working on, but they havenít presented themselves in that way yet. All I know is that they really came up after I went and saw Roddy Chong with TSO last November. I wanted to create an animated Violinist andÖvoila.
The color scheme also confounds me. Guess thatís what I get for starting drawing with Neil Gaimanís shaggy mess oíhair in mind and then then start watching LOST near the end. Oh, Sayid.
Let me know if you want to see the alternate version!
