Super shoddy lineart of my first fanmade Digimon, Lostmon! Basically I wanted to design myself a partner, and I thought, “what kind of digimon would fit me?” so of course it had to be a Lost Boy. He wears a bear pelt hat with a big leaf for a shirt, and fur on his legs. Plus his hair always gets in his eyes so he’s literally lost all the time because he’s a dork. He basically thinks he’s a bear and growls a lot.
Maybe I’ll colour it tomorrow too….iunno.
So here’s some actual Fire Candy concept art that I ultimately won’t need because it’s a written story instead of a comic, but it’s still helpful anyway!
(pictured: Niki, Candace, Lollyhamma)
Quick character bios!
Niki is barely 19 and runs her very own candy business empire. Don’t let her age fool you, she’s a no-nonsense decision maker who says it like it is, right to your face. She built her business not to make a profit, but to provide something everybody likes (candy) and something everybody needs (jobs). She always carries candy on her person at all times.
Wandering across the country as a nomadic arsonist-for-hire in a fireproof jacket, Candace has spent most of her life studying fire as if it were a religion. And to her, it just might be! She prefers the subtle, secret approach, and is quite reserved, unless you get her talking philosophy! She carries a backpack flamethrower and has been known to use it in horrible, inhumane ways on unsuspecting targets!
There have been times where Niki’s candy empire has been hit by thieves and ne’er-do-wells, but they’ve always regretted their actions when they met the blunt end of this candy vigilante’s hammer. Rarely seen but definitely felt, this violent crusader protects the business and its factories. Her giant lollipop hammer has earned her the nickname Lollyhamma, and those not wanting permanent face damage would be wise to avoid her at all costs. She won’t admit it, but everyone knows it’s really just Niki herself pulling a Bruce Wayne.
And that’s that! There are a couple other major characters I may do concept art for as well, but I wanted to share these and help build some interest in the story, because starting in November, I AM FOR REAL WRITING THIS SHIT.
Hey peeps. check out this rad article on Comics Alliance about the project I’ve been cranking out in the last month for Boom! Studios! It’s an anthology with a BUNCH of super cool peeps contributing! I did all the character designs and a three pager about a talking hamburger!
It’s gonna be the coolest biz, you should buy it. :)
Anonymous, I can tell you’re a relatively new follower, because you haven’t yet heard the lengths to which I used to be devoted to Phineas & Ferb. :D
Ever since I started watching it, I’ve absolutely loved it! It’s a very creative and thoroughly entertaining cartoon! I grew to like it so much that I’d use the characters as drawing practice, and eventually I decided to put that practice to much bigger use.
Over 3 years ago, I wrote and drew a full 38-page Phineas & Ferb comic (despite having serious doubts about my artistic skills both then and now), one page per week, pencils-only. I slaved away for the better part of a year making it!
(ech, looking back at old art makes me criiiiiiinge) |D
I immersed myself really deep within the P&F universe to imitate the writing style and punchy presentation of the show, and wrote an original story (complete with an original song, too!) that my friends all agreed felt exactly like a typical episode! I’m quite pleased with the way it came out, overall!
But yeah, it sure was a lot of work to put all that together. So needless to say, I am quite a big fan of Phineas & Ferb!
(And yet for being such a big fan, I’m at least a whole season behind on the show, ha….really got fix that some time!)
I would command a mighty army of FROGS. Because frogs can literally do it all, land and sea and walls and trees, and are arguably my favorite animal ever. With my frogs I would sweep the eastern seaboard and subjugate my enemies while offering free rides on the giant bullfrogs to my well-wishers and supporters!
Wakfu is amazing and I absolutely know you’d love it, man. AND NOW A GIF:
