30 Character Challenge: Day 11, 12 and 13

Ok, so I'm a little behind (a lot behind), so here are three new, totally unrelated characters. I'm having a lot of fun working on the New Masada and Rebel States characters, but I'm going to take a break from those and try to just create some totally new people as well.

Name: Golden Bow
Real Name: Grant Archer
Age: 28
Height: 5’8
Weight: 160 lbs
Location: the Woods
Hair: Brown

Bio: the Golden Bow is a deadly force with his trusty bow and arrow. Also an expert at hand-to-hand combat, he fights crime in the poor no man's land known only as "the Woods." As a child, Grant was always a sort of a loner and the life of the Golden Bow suits him. He gets to keep a low profile, and no one expects that the quiet cooper could possibly be the same person who brought the  Robbin' Hood gang to justice.

Side note: I was trying to play around with perspective on this one, and got it about half right. I feel really good about arms and head, but where the waist turns is a bit of a mess. Basically, I forgot about hips and gave him the smallest butt in the world. Oops.

Name: the Professor
Age: 68
Height: 5’7
Weight: 150 lbs
Location: North Hadley College
Hair: Grey
Eyes: Brown

Bio: Basically, I just wanted to draw 1) someone from the top down 2) a guy with long hair and a beard 3) a Cosby sweater. So, basically, a college professor. I think this sort of person is a good one to have in your wheelhouse. Most of my people tend to be around the same age, so it's a good excuse to try to draw an older person. The marker I used to color in his skin was running out, but I really like the texture it gives, it makes him look older!

Name: the Manarchist
Age: 22
Height: 5’11
Weight: 155 lbs
Location: Too close for comfort
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Blue

Bio: The Manarchist is that guy who needs to check his privilege at the door. He's so busy trying to be the most progressive and radical person he can be that he forgets that he is a white, straight, cisgendered dude who shops at Whole Foods and whose parents work for the government. He has all sorts of opinions, like that Nixon was the most radical president we've had (well, except for all the foreign policy stuff). He will talk you ear off, let me tell you.

Personally, I think the Occupy movement is awesome. It's just a good chance to have an anarchist complaining about themselves. I also know and enjoy the company of some anarchists, it's just that a lot of them need to check themselves before they wreck themselves. Drawing leather jackets is also fun, so it was either this or a punk.

  1. Katie, I love seeing these characters and reading about them. What a great trove it gives you to draw from later...pun, ahem.
