My Mac decided it needed to break it's one usb port, so it's taking a vacation. Quite sad really. I hope it likes being with the 'geniuses' at the genius bar. Hope it's drinking a pina colada. So, basically I am using my father's computer that has no photoshop or illustrator, but behold I have not seized to make art! Read ahead...
Today I was chit chatting with my bear loving friend Hannah. Our weird little conversation led us to a collaboration we're going to try out. Not sure how it's going to go since we have completely different styles, but it'll be fun and challenging. The concept is homeless superheroes, spin off of characters we all know. I sketched up two ideas so far. I wasn't sure if I wanted to created the look of the superheroes and twist their costumes to make them appear homeless or have completely outrageous character types. I tried a bit of both. Did Wolverine to look more like him, but thinking of giving him butter knives duct taped to his fists. Then I tried a short fat Batman-like fellow who is trying to crawl into a dumpster. His poor garbage bag cape broke open, spilling it's grubby contents. I like story-telling. I like creating characters in my head. They just have a hard time coming out onto paper. This little collab may help a bit, who knows....I'm just excited to work with my friend and practice on something while doing so.
Practice. That word seems to be my 'word of the day' every day, haha.
Dang nabbit, more superheroes. Where's my Mac with that upside down girl? She really needs to be finished. I still have plenty of ideas for her.
