I'm going to make this art blog about my personal project called Messer Rat. I started with a quick character sketch and decided to take it to a visual developent project. I've done a few character sheets and have worked out a few illustrations. here I'll post what I have done thus far and will continue to document it as I go.
the Messer Rat character sheet with pose sketches:
The Messer Rat character: armor concept exploration
The Messer Rat prop/weapon sheet
The Serpent Nyss Character sheet.
this is the monster that the Messer Rat must face in the story.
A quick environment concept of a castle carved out of a petrified stump that I am calling Wurzelhoff (roughly root hold or root house in german)
Story moment illustration of the Messer Rat facing the serpent Nyss at the end of the story. though I think I'm going to go back and re-work this one later on as I am shifting technique somewhat.
and where I am currently (also posted in WIP section) which is a sort of prologue scene to the story as it takes place in the aftermath of a bloody civil war. a battle scene done with traditionally with watercolor wash that is then rendered digitally.
