These are a few designs for the Bigfoot character in the 8 page comic I'm working on for the PARABLE anthology I mentioned in my last post. The story is called "Mamaw and Bigfoot" and it's a short story told in rhyme about a little Southern boy that walks to his Mamaw's house to see her and an unexpected visitor knocks at the door. The title kinda tells you who it is, but there's a nice point to the story about how the Grandma excepts this strange visitor that the boy just sees as scary and different. So, above are some designs for Bigfoot that I did with the last one having a strong influence by Rob. The Mamaw design and boy design are Rob's in kinda a simple "children's book" style. I really liked that, so that's what I was trying for in the Bigfoots I did. I ended up grabbing elements from some of the rough ones (noses, feet, hunch backs) and coming up with a goofy looking version that I thought was close enough to jump onto the final boards with. That's all for now, I'll show a couple pages in development soon.
