New character sneak peek!

Posted by on July 19, 2011

Something we’ve been battling with internally is the balance between artistic style and emotional connection. The existing characters have a style we all really like, but Vasuki seems to have a lot more going on behind his eyes than Garuda and Jatayu. Vasuki has this sinister, clever look that seems like he is about to do something evil, and you won’t know it until it happens because he’s SO DARN CUTE!

Granted, a lot of this is because Jatayu and Garuda are birds, and a big pointy beak always says “grrr!” This actually works for us, as “angry” suits their characters well.

However, we want some more expressiveness in the line, and we’ve been toying with a more cartoony style to make it happen. We are working on merging this style into our existing line with a modified Vasuki and two new characters, Sugriva (half ape) and Jambavan (half sloth bear). Soon we’ll put up their histories Like we did with the first three, but in the meantime, check out this sneak preview.

Snakes, Sloth bears, and Apes, oh my!
