    Introducing - Tom-A-Hawk

    Here is a new character that I am working on after deciding it was weird that MOTU has Cowboys but no Indians.

    At the moment he is not colored and he doesn't even have a bio, heck all I know about him is his name and the fact he is a good guy.

    Still here he is



    He was inspired by two things

    1. The word "Tomahawk" which just sounded like a MOTU name to me

    and

    2. The Four Horsemen's "Gothtropolis" figures, specifically those awesome looking bird warriors / characters

    Nice. He reminds me of that hawk guy MasterEnglish cooked up at PowerCon. So is he the Tonto to Rio-Blast's Lone Ranger?

    What hawk guy did MasterEnglish cook up?

    I don't think Tom-A-Hawk would demean himself like that

    Nice work as always Wolfsfang.

    I like the bio.

    I am a bit curious on the name. How did you go about spelling? What was your approach to it?

    Quite simple really. I looked up a bunch of Native American names (specifically the ones from Assassins Creed 3 ) and just tried to come up with a name that somewhat followed their structure and which could be shortened (with a bit of work) to his more common name.

    Oh and if anyone is curious his name is pronounced "Tay Hom He Na Kay Hah Rah Hawk"

    I thought I'd commented on this already, lol. Apparently not!

    Nice character, man. Your art is coming along in leaps and bounds!
