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!
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.
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.
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.
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,
