So this is going to be a little sub-project of sorts which will also contribute to finishing my avatar. Now that Me and the background have been mostly finished I’ll be adding an extra touch by getting some extra people in the clouds. These will consist of a couple of characters I thought up over the year, preferably spread across my writing “career”. I will be starting with the first half of a duo that was born during my early years of writing: Hop of Hip & Hop fame!
You’ll probably notice that this style is a whole lot different from the Order of the Stick style I’ve been using so far to bring Me to life. That is because I’m trying to draw the character like I used to draw him back in the day I worked on the comics. I’m currently still looking for these old Hip & Hop comics to get all the details right. Sure, Hop and his brother (I, think they were brothers…) were not really that detailed, but they were drawn a certain way I really want to emulate in their digitalized version. It’s mostly the shape of the limbs and body and the size of the different parts in comparison to the other parts (if that makes any sense). Once I find the comics Hop’ll be updated where necessary and Hip will also be added.
In addition to Hip and Hop (and, obviously, a fish to follow)there’ll probably be two more characters added, but as of yet I’m not entirely sure which ones. For the moment, though, the focus will be on the two HiHoLanders (that’s pronounced Hee-Ho, so not like the song by those seven dwarves) from my youth. ^_^
