I've done a bunch of colored sketches for my race bios during the last month or so, and it's resulted in a bunch of color variants I thought would be fun to share with you.
I thought about entering an Akrani scorpion man in the Create A Character contest, but of course that didn't work out. Of course I also forgot that there already is a scorpion-themed character in POP, but then there's Buzz-Off and Sweet Bee so... Anyway, my original color scheme for him was orange and blue, but I played with the colors a bit and I really liked this all-black version too.
Tung Lashorr! I meant to color my Snake Man sketch green for the race bios, but the sketch was based on one of my favorite vintage characters and I couldn't resist coloring him accordingly. His colors are based on a real purple snake that lives in the Amazon. (I know his name doesn't have two 'r's but I prefer it that way. LASHORR! )
Now for something completely different: a naked Grizzlor
I guess he's technically almost naked anyway, at least the vintage version is. I colored a larger part of the sketch than I ended up using on the bio page, so I thought I wouldn't let it go to waste.
Last but not leech... okay, sorry about that. Last but not least, my version of Leech, a slightly different version of which will be used in the race bios. Say what you will about the vintage design, this is how I imagined Leech should have looked like right from the start: like a leech (with a bit of lamprey for good measure).
