Eyes Of The Forest: Concept art for this Comic Book Part 2

► Eyes of the Forest Indiegogo campaign is ongoing! ◄

This week we would like to introduce you to Alvas, the second main character in EOTF – Eyes of The Forest, a comic book we had the pleasure of developing last year with James Streissand from top to bottom!

Alvas is Runin’s best friend and the brawn in their dynamic duo and from James’ description, we understood he had to be tall and muscular. And also blue!

The first sketch we sent of Alvas

Unlike Runin, who was pretty much set the first time we drew him, Alvas had to be tweaked here and there, because although he is supposed to have a gentle giant look, he’s also a fierce warrior, one you should absolutely not mess with.
And yes, as you might suspect already, we are huge fans of Alvas. We’ll confess, the blue skin is a huge factor.

Less bulk means easier movements

Being a story in a huge wild world, we were also asked to develop a set of fantasy animals to go with it!
Just like the humanoid characters, we followed a description of these creatures and we’ll call it “Unknown Big Cat” for now.

A first approach to the Big Cat, but we wanted to make it look even bigger!

What we had to make absolute, was for this fiend to be a mix of a sabre tooth tiger and a porcupine, ouch! Teeth and needles together? A big warning to run away.

A final, approved concept! We’re glad these don’t exist for real.

When developing a comic or other types of commercial art, artists need to be ready for what the client wants represented and learn how to tackle these with enough ease and especially, readability.

Thank you so much for checking out the second part of our post for EOTF’s concept art and we want to invite you to check part 1 if you still haven’t seen it, without forgetting to read the post about the ongoing Indiegogo campaign.
And if you like fantasy, blue giants and huge felines please consider backing this project!

Thank you once again and as always,

★stay inspired!★

    • Thank you so much! We felt it was too jolly and not ready for action and like you said, too bulky. He’s a perfect action machine now! If cats and porcupines mix we hope to be miles away!
