|Rough Pencils to Rough Digitals in Ninety Minutes!|
Since then I’ve been working on a few ideas.
Here we have a rough for an illustration focused on a young wizard battling monsters and masked miscreants in a mid century metropolis.
I was inspired by a number of things I enjoy; A young magician establishing themselves in a modern city comes from Kiki's Delivery Service. The pulp hero in the big city with a flare for the fantastic is taken from cartoons like Batman The Animated Series and The Legend of Korra with the big monster being battled by super psudeo-science is borrowed from Lee and Kirby's run on the Fantastic Four. I also want to give a shout out to Michael May's Adventureblog for his recent King Kong posts that helped fuel the fire.
Still working out were I can go with this and how I might be able to involve mechanical men, femme fatales and other colorful characters!
