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.
