Meet Roek

This is another one of my characters who deserves a little more attention these days. Originally this was a creature concept I made up in 2006 for a video game called Spore. Yes, I was following that game for that long.

Since then I modified the design so much since then. I called them Sombrerons, named for their hat-like head they had for their first design. For the most part, I maintained their peculiar way of locomotion. They walk with their hands, grab and hold with their feet.

Initially this may seem challenging trying to figure out how these guys deal with day-to-day life. How they interact with things and how they use tools or drive vehicles. It was sort of an interesting project, and still is. Nowadays I like to switch things up and occasionally have them interact with their limbs like normal humans do. Mostly because it's still hard trying to figure out how they do everything with their feet. :P

I am very much drawn to Florian Satzinger's drawing style. The simplicity and contrasting shapes of his characters are just so appealing and awesome. So I tried drawing one of my own characters, mixing a bit of Satzinger flair.

I should probably introduce you to Keel here. A space gator that loves to play. He'll be a reoccurring subject from time to time, and will be official mascot and spokesgator to this blog. Say hello!

I also have a few other lovely interpretations of him by the very gifted L. Frostad. I highly suggest you follow her blog. IMMENSELY!

Some much needed life drawing practice warm-ups. Made little "Stephen Silver" notes to chastise me.

Only the Beginning!

Well here it is. Nothing much going on at the moment. But it will start when it starts. But first, gotta give this place a nice theme I can call my own.
