TAoRW: Character Sheet: Introvixen by SimplyCookie
TAoRW: Character Sheet: Introvixen
The Adventures of Retail Warrior
This is a rather silly but very fun project I've been working on, making comic-book-style superheroes based very loosely on colleagues/events from the local shop I work at. I decided to try and develop a hyper-stylised art style to fit the comic-book theme and put into practice a lot of what I've been learning about character design and the design process. Each character's aesthetics stem from a collection of shapes and colours that fit their theme, a process I decided to try after seeing this (foxprints.com/tracy/character_…) in tracyjb's wonderfully educational journal entry (tracyjb.deviantart.com/).

Introvixen (formerly Sunday McNuggets):
Oh where to start :3 Introvixen is an alien (technically a Zarblogian, though humans are incapable of pronouncing it right) who crash-landed on Earth. Her opinion of our planet isn't exactly high: it's dirty, and smelly, and full of humans, which she tries to avoid in most cases. In fact, she was mid-way through her attempt to leave when she happened to have some chicken nuggets, which were so delicious she decided to stay after all. Somehow (please don't ask xD) she managed to get a job at the local shop, where she has managed to find a group of humans that can be considered as tolerable \:D/ She is especially close with Timber; in fact she's the only character who doesn't realise that he's not human, due to her limited exposure to our species~ (this misconception doesn't even change when he transforms into a tank)

To the superhero group she brings a huge amount of potential, but doesn't often use it f^^ She has immense psyionic capabilities but doesn't like using them to manipulate 'icky human minds'. She also has considerable control over gravity, but mainly uses this to float above the ground so she doesn't have to get her feet dirty.

Other trivia: she is incredibly good at throwing (being able to accurately hit a target from as much as 596 miles away) and this was the talent she displayed during the 'talent' section of the Miss Andromeda competition, which she has won four years in a row. She is currently hoping to add Miss Milky Way to her collection of sashes~

Darcey Portrait WIP - fixed by SimplyCookie
Darcey Portrait WIP - fixed
So here's a fix of my earlier Work In Progress of a portrait of Darcey Bussell. When I started working on the painting I wanted to jump straight into values practice, so I did the sketch very quickly and looking back on it I should have spent more time getting the proportions right f^^ But now I've learned a lot more about how Photoshop works and various different functionalities that can help me fix the mistakes without having to redo the whole painting, I can get a fix up :)

Also at some point this is supposed to be coloured but... I guess I'll be leaving that for another day f^^

As always: Wacom Bamboo and PS. I don't want to estimate how many hours I've spent on this (because it's an enormous amount DX) but the fix was very quick so that's something \:D/

Rainbow Dash:
Rainbow Dash is a fast-paced debuff-based character who disorients and stuns the crew's enemies with her dizzying speed and super-sonic-karaoke skills.
Her superpowers include Penny Sweets Sweep, Supersonic Boom, and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the lyrics of every song played on the shop radio.

Dog with a Monocle by SimplyCookie
Dog with a Monocle
A random doodle from ages ago I decided to work on and fancy up. The book is called 'An Illustrated Guide To Your Human' :)

And just in case any other Unforgotten Realms fans are out there: even though he has a monocle, unfortunately he is not a wizard.

~2.5 hours Wacom Bamboo & Photoshop (2B Pencil brush)

Bon Bon Flash:
Bon Bon is the Peter Parker of the group. Being based on a person who doesn't actually work at the shop, she doesn't technically have any super powers. However! She is the fiance of Ass Man and so knows about all our super shenanigans. She's a keen photographer and documents Retail Warrior's (and his many sidekick's) heroic battles - something that has kickstarted her career into super-journalism!
Being also resourceful and ingenious she can utilise her camera as a weapon to blind and disorientate enemies :) She's also fantastic for team morale~
Much of her design is not only geared towards her own character but also as a complement to Ass Man's design (simplycookie.deviantart.com/ar…) so that they look like they belong together :) The rainbow socks are all Bon Bon though <3
