Man, I haven’t tried to draw Kirby Crackle since I was like 13.
Half redesign half fanart of Maya from Borderlands. I love all the art direction from that game, but I wish that Maya and Lilith had the same diversity of bodytype that you see among the male characters: as it is, they both just have the body type of “female.” (Anita Sarkeesian spoke eloquently about this recently) Anyway, I read that Maya was raised by monks, so I wanted to give her a body type like she’s practiced some kind of martial discipline, and could probably raise some hell with just her fists. I also tweeked a few things here and there for fun.
Another Chicago streetview. I think it’s worth saying at this point that this series is inspired by the work of Kawase Hasui. His stuff is so good and so fundamentally comic-booky that it just blows my mind.
And this would be Shadrach, the last of the three-person group of bit characters from Perdido Street Station.
This is probably the one I took the most liberties with: Shadrach actually does a decent amount but doesn’t get much description beyond being a big guy in mismatched armor carrying a ridiculous amount of weapons. I decided to make him short, give him a poncho and a jaunty porkpie hat, and see about working the mercenary gunman angle.
