    Slayer Character from Fluff

    Some of you may know me from other sites and here. I write the Slayer Saga which is reaching the 100 page mark. Anyway I had previously done some cartoons and such but below is an attempt to slowly get towards a graphic novel/comic book type sketch of my main character.

    Initial sketch. Not too happy with it but was trying to transition from human proportions to dwarvern ones. Not as easy as it may seem by the way.



    This one is the refined version with quite a bit more detail on it focusing on the character of the face. I am still trapped in the human proportions with the elongated head. I'm getting there.



    These obviously aren't the highest quality pics. I draw in my sketch book with a number two pencil. I have the full assortment of pastels, acryllics, chaulk, and charcoal if I choose to use it but I hate painting with a passion and normally I sketch in the car while my kid is at Tae Kwon Do. So I prefer not to make too much of a mess.

    Any how. I'm open to candid comments and pointers.

    Try to make his body wider; dwarves are very broad in comparison to their height. Also his head seems a little big, and his arms slightly too long...

    Very nice work though, especially the close-up. keep it up

    @Danceman: Will do. Dwarven anatomy is actually very hard to pull off. Next version will have the head about 1/8th thinner, 1/4 squater. Will work on bulking out the thighs and broadening the chest up a bit and shortening the arms while keeping them muscular.

    @Rogue-Angel: thanks for the compliments and I'll work on the suggestions. Tomorrow I will try to pull together an action scene to practice changing it up a bit.

    Don't change the head. Head's good.

    I'll try not to. I have the rough sketch done but it needs to be darkened up, shadowed and cleaned up. So it should be posted tonight in a few hours. Definetly one of the hardest ones I have done so far and more detailed with some better muscles and proportions so far. So teaer over with later I'll get the pic up.

    Took longer than I thought but here is the update. This is basically a scene out of the Slayer Initiates story where the hero Troll Slayer Sqalliq is thrown by a Giant. Was trying for something a little bit more dynamic that him just standing there, And I know the giant hand is out of scale but I'll probably do another later.

    Great drawings. I also think that he should carry more weapons.
