The First Dystopia Page

Because there's nowhere else for you people to see this yet.

So hey kids, how about that dystopia? This is the first in a long line of sketches i did of this particular character. Back before Kris told me what the project was gonna exactly consist of, my idea was to have this mechanic/family man character going. I was pretty enthusiastic about his design, as you can see in the following page.

And then, mean ol' Kris shot that idea down. I did, however, have a new thing to work from. I had to make a scientist character, a character with an appearance that suits the 1980s in America.
In the meantime, I designed this scary Russian guy. He might end up being someone's shady boss? I have no clue.
After doodling a WoW character I had recently made (Laurica), and after drawing Niko Bellic from GTA IV, I began doodling potential scientist faces. As you can see, by the end of this page, I came to the conclusion that I could simply slap glasses onto the steampunk mechanic, and viola. He's my 80's scientist.

Since there's some sort of virus involved in the story, I attempted to draw mutated lab rats. Don't pay no mind to them.

Alright, there's the stuff I said I needed to scan. When there's more, I'm sure it'll eventually find its way here. Until then,

Strength in Pixels

Here's a higher-res version of this week's episode of Scurry, sans text. Yes, I'm posting this because I'm too lazy to go scan pages in my sketchbook that contain character design for the dystopia project. Yes, I am ashamed of that fact.
