So it seems my incubator for The Mechanic was lost to the warp so I have begun anew! Here is a couple early sketches of my new character Octo-Cop. He is a hard working beat cop for the NVCPD and has been on the job for 15 years. He's seen it all. His 3 square miles of Void City are among the safest (by Void's standards) and his residents are extremely fond of their officer. He is very tough and honest and is extremely committed to protecting his beat. He also happens to have an octopus for a head. He is a Thull, an ancient magical creature with immense magical talent that have been worshipped as gods in millennia past. Octo however, is unaware of this as he was discovered and raised by a lower middle class family in the area of town he now patrols. His unknown powers, while untapped, still give him certain abilities. He can sense danger and can view events by touching inanimate objects, he writes these off as good cop sense and intuition. Due to his heritage he also has incredible strength and agility. His tentacles can stretch an incredible distance and are devastatingly strong. They are covered with hard suction cups and cover a razor sharp beaked mouth. Octo cares little for the politics of the city and his department and just wants to keep his little sector safe. He frequents the pub near his home after his shift most nights and loves beer and hotwings.
I'm currently working on the character sheet and intro comic but have switched over to digital art which has not been an easy transition. I'm slowly figuring it out thanks to dozens of youtube videos.
