For my final Novembrr card, I chose to draw fan favorite character: Oni. I say that because, by my count, he’s the only character that all 6 of us drew this month. Unless, of course, Tony draws Kry tomorrow or he and Kansas both draw James this week (which are distinct possibilities).
I didn’t want to be the fifth person to draw a bust of Oni (not that there’s anything wrong with that), so I set my sights on coming up with a different layout, and this was the third or fourth thing I sketched out. It’s a little like Kansas’ Kry card, but with more “stuff in the background” happening (for better or worse). Also, color. And a bloody club thing.
I thought it’d be cool to try to make Oni imposing without seeing much of him. Did I succeed? I dunno. As with most of my cards this month, I feel like this would have turned out way better if I’d drawn it at 8.5x11” scale instead of on a tiny little sketch card, but that’s what this blog is all about lately and a larger piece would just be even more work for me. So…there ya go.
As per usual, drawn on 2-ply bristol, inked with Pitt pens, and colored with Copic markers.
See y’all in December!
