Pointy Ear Man
Yey, a little more character development. I have some great new work starting soon, so I wanted to take some time to play around with some style development. Don't ask where the idea came from, I was just sat down watching some TV with my sketch pad playing with some lines...and boom, he appeared. Kinda Batman inspired I guess with a mix of other superheroes. I really like the clean line, Tartakovsky style simplicity of this character, I must keep exploring!!
This was a personal project to explore a new range of characters that had been wandering around my mind for way to long. Also it had been a while since I last put pencil to paper, so I grabbed my pad and started scratching!
It's been a long time since I’ve worked on any form of news based site, so it was a relished challenge to take on the re-design of IGM!
