Experimenting with Bad Grammar's look... Michio here is pretty much the epitome of my mood as of late. Eventually, some day, I will be done with my overhaul of the comic. Until then... Moar sketching.

Moar Character Designs

Nothing much to post today, so have some more character designs from my "Maiz" comic-in-progress. All the animals and animal-people will be local to Guatemala, so here we have a crocodile, a sea turtle, and a jaguar. Jaguars are actually very austere animals in Mayan culture, which I want to reflect in the comic. But for now there's still a lot of design work to be done.

Finish to Start

Finished up a concept illustration for the Maiz project!

And because I'm addicted to showing process, here are the stages in reverse order: flat colors, linework, and pencils.

Maiz again

I'm busy working on what is currently my most ambitious photoshop project yet (and it is long overdue), so here are some more sketches in the meantime, all having to do with my current comic in the works.

I considered this sketch for a postcard, actually, but ended up going with a different illustration.

Here are some more character designs. Above is Marcus, the faithful dog of the group. He was a stray before he met Maiz, and so is the precocious type. He's also a music lover. Below is a secondary character who will appear in the first story arc, though I haven't thought up a name for her. Her village worships a giant macaw with sapphire teeth, who I will probably be talking about much more later on.
