Been working on this on and off for a bit, I'm still gonna probably change a few things soon (like Joplin's clothing, dude looks like a valet or card dealer or something).
And as you can see I haven't finished Django, yet, but it's good to get some input on what I have so far, seeing how everyone else is "done".
Oh, I can tell you right now that the lighting is inconsistent and basically a grab bag.
Been working on this here and there.
Ok, might give a go at explaining what I'm thinking here.
The bottom line is that I'm thinking of taking a 1930's cartoon backdrop (particularly the works of Fleischer and Mintz) and twist it into the vein of a shonen comic. But not just any shonen, Jump-style shonen, REAL shonen: Friendship (友情), Endeavor/Struggle (努力),Victory (勝利). Really goofy, huh?
The story takes place in Great Depression Chicago, about a bunch of inexplicably battle suited weirdos who get mixed up with the Mafia, and subsequently an underground anarchist cult that plotted the murder of the mayor.
I'm still going in the way of research, and I've got a ways to go. But it's fun, I tell ya.
I'm just looking for some critique on my character designs. Are they distinguished well enough from each other? Do they all look like they belong in the same world, particularly Vet? It's not easy making a single human in a group of funny animals not stand out too much. Do some ideas just not work at all? Artie's torso could be a problem.
And if anyone didn't catch the joke, all of the characters are named after musicians (except Eddie) and Joplin's an anachronism in two ways.
