I'm currently in a weird sort of schedule-limbo where I have no existing projects, and I'm moving soon. So faced with exorbitant amounts of free time, I've been able to get serious about my doodles.
Here's a concept that I tinkered with today.
I'd like to get better at incorporating people into my work, which is a challenge for me because I prefer stories about anthropomorphic animals.
That being said, I have always loved stories that incorporate people and animals together seamlessly. And not as talking pets, but in a weird alternate reality where animals and people communicate as equals. Some of the old Aesop's Fables come to mind, where an animal will just strike up a conversation with a person. Those may not be the greatest example because usually someone dies horribly, but the basic premise is worth noting.
That in mind, I had this idea, as part of a larger story, for there to be 'villain tryouts', featuring some of the sketched characters. Enjoy!
