Here are two major character designs that I felt compelled to clean up and re-draw because I was so pleased with them. They’re from a story of mine called “R.E.M” which centers around a detective tracking a murder through dreams.
The gal at the top is Duchamp, and in the story she’s the queen of the dream-realm and ruler of everything in it. She’s intensely whimsical and silly as one would imagine and makes light of most situations, telling jokes to distract or cheer people up. She exists exclusively in the world of dreams but has absolute power there, able to change and twist around whatever or whoever she wants. Her own body is an even stranger anomaly itself (even as far as dreams are concerned).
The fellow under her is Ulysses and he’s the half-human, half-dream son of Duchamp, and the prince of the dream realm as such. His mixed lineage comes from the fact that years ago Duchamp hooked up with an unnamed human male. He’s a stark contrast to his silly and care-free mother, as he works a job, pays taxes, and very much considers himself an “adult’. He can be easily stressed though, and he’s not yet managed to coax the identity of his human father out of his mother, to his frustration.
Together they balance each other out, and also serve to teach each other valuable things along the course of the story.
Man I really love parent/child OCs.
So the private view is done with! But lots to prepare for still with next month’s CAR PARK SHOW in London.
Meanwhile here are some quick drawings I did for our Brighton show shop. Go have a look at all the great work if you’re about! It’ll be on til the 12th.
