We’ve been busy today. Zipping around to stores. Swimming at the YMCA. Wrapping Christmas presents (for distribution on Thanksgiving). Going for a nice evening walk.
But I’m glad to say I still had time to draw today.
I finished up the “Dungeons & Dragons” troll shown above — I call him the ‘Fro Troll. I also had time to work on a few superhero costume designs that have been bouncing around in my head for a while. (Yeah, I know he’s missing an arm — I ran out of paper!)
Character No. 1: I had been trying to create a costume for months now for a fellow named Worker Bee. I finally shook a design out of my head thatworks. If you’re a “Mutants & Masterminds” player, I built stats for Worker Bee in this ComicsOnTheBrain.com entry:
Character No. 2: My daughter has a bag of action figures she always plays with. One of them is a character from the movie “Treasure Planet.” I don’t know what the character’s real name is, but we call her Captain Fox. Well, with that name and vague character design in mind, I redrew the action figure to make an official Captain Fox. I can’t wait to show her!
Character No. 3: For years now, I’ve been building up a group of characters I can use in my own superhero comics. My primary character is a fellow named Electron. Well after all this time ( since fifth grade) of ignoring my initial design for the character, I tried it out again and really liked it. The big rediscovery? His eye-wear should look more like a set of bug-eyed welder’s goggles, not like a set of ski goggles.
… All in all, a productive day!
