I love the interaction and words between Phosphene and Quimp! A more unlikely pair would be hard to find.
Steve, I’m curious why the characters’ noses are red on the end. I keep thinking they have a cold and their noses are stuffed up. Is there a reason you colour them like that?
Thanks, Jude. As for the red noses (and ears, and cheeks, hands, lips)… I wanted to make the character feel more alive – like there’s blood pumping underneath those pixels. And then, when I added those little highlights on the nose and lips, the face came alive. So then I started adding it to everyone – I mean, even the green dragons have red coloring in their noses and cheeks.
That said, as the color has gotten more intense – maybe too much? – I want to make sure our hero doesn’t end up with a clown nose. 🙂
You’ve got to admit that “clown-nosed Quimp” would be a totally awesome piece of non-con artwork, tho…
Blarg! “Non-*canon* artwork”, not “non-con artwork”. Friggin’ rented fingers…
I wouldn’t say the colouring is too much for their noses, not at all clown like. I just wondered if they perhaps had a stuffed-up nose as in allergies and we find they’re allergic to each other. You’re the artist, after all, and far be it for me, a lowly though valued reader to say how you draw and colour your characters!
I’d say it looks more like a classic boozer’s conk than a clown’s nose.
Yep, they are definitely a married couple.
Glad I wasn’t the only one who thought it.
