These two little guys are two great tastes that taste great together! That's it!
I've been so busy with deadlines I've had very little time to work on the chronicles. So I'm happy to share this little gem with you. Again, these two little guys are Sushi and Gazpacho. Down below is Pandamonium getting worked by the crazy little cat. Lately I've been digging the color palette you see here. A great combo, I think.
I've been asked how to create characters and I think in order to design characters you have to love them. Think about the characters you grew up with and make a list of the ones that you care about the most, figure out why and then think about the people around you that can inspire characters of your own. It's a matter of playing with the sketches over and over again until you feel comfortable with your creation, but the personality and story is the most important. And remember that the drawings will evolve. Just look at the original sketches of these two guys.

There you have it. Just keep drawing. Your sketch book is your best friend.
