Assorted art of Euclid and Juju that I’ve received over the years from various artists. Key thing here is that there seems to be no question amongst other artists as to what Euclid should look like, but interpretations of Juju got more creative. i had a tough time redesigning her later on to fit with the current visual aesthetic.
More of Chapter 2. Funny enough, Juju was actually concieved of as the doll first, and the witchy girl later. Euclid is uhm…he’s a special case.
I think early on people confused Euclid and Hannibal since both were spiky haired goth characters, but they have distinctly different personalities.
Have some Pooky shooting at something.
Yes that is a Luger.
The second chapter of Gritty City Stories. Every so often I return to the magical characters for some lighthearted fun. Ok and an axemurder. not specifically addressed in this chapter, but explained in a later one, this scene doesn’t actually take place in Gritty City its self but in the nearby town of Haunted Junction, though the story will be shortly moving to the city.
Chapter 2 was home to a lot of experimentation, so the look may change as the story progresses before things finally start to cement in the next two following chapters.
Concluding Chapter 1 of Gritty City Stories brings us to a close. It was a rough concept, and very raw at the time, but it did the job it needed to of introducing the core cast, and concepts that would push the rest of the story. Some day I’d like to come back and redraw this chapter.
Knell’s guns through most of the series were Walther P38s because at the time that was what I had handy for a reference. No I didn’t have an actual P38, but I did have a Generation 1 Transformer Megatron, who transforms into a very realistic replica of said Walther P38. I miss when toys could be realistic guns and no one flipped their shit over it.
Old unfinished project. Pooky resin kits. I still have a bunch of raw ones in storage.
A random sampling of some of the artwork people have sent me over the years. I absolutely LOVE fanart. It’s my favorite thing to get (though comments are a close second). The reason I love it so much is that it’s a powerful visual feedback. Seeing someone take my designs into their style lets me know how people see my artwork, and proves very influential in future advances in my artwork. It’s sort of like being able to step outside yourself, and see your actions from another perspective. All of these artists are amazing. In fact everyone who’s sent me art is amazing. You’re amazing too if you’re reading this and give a damn about it.
A quiet moment for Knell.
Back then I thought to keep things focused on the smaller scale the rabbits live on, I’d avoid showing human’s faces, generally hiding them, or having them only seen waist down.
