My Fist, Your Face

Monk concept sketch. Big and small and bad ass.

Every now and then it’s fun to sit down and doodle up characters.  This particular pair came out of an idea for a role playing game. I enjoy doing things that contradict stereotypes and thought it would be fun to have a dwarf (my dwarves don’t look like the stuff that comes out of the Tolkien universe) that has a wandering monk vibe.  The big fella in the background it sort of a sidekick. This sketch has that Of Mice and Men feel and the big guy is the brute/Lenny stereotype, but I wanted to avoid that. So, I tried to give him an expression that didn’t come off as dopey in this quick doodle. I never did flesh these guys out any more, but I may do so in the future.

This was done with Col-Erase Red and Col-Erase blue pencils and a Bic Ball-point pen in a Strathmore Sketchbook.  The color effects and borders were added in Snapseed on my phone.
