Heartaches 16: Obnoxious Audiophiles


/dies a little from the unexpected awesome
it’s my first time reading through, and I really really like your character designs!

So that is the half-manticore?
… What is the other half? Lion? Manticores were yet another creature supposed to have a human face. Stands to reason his other half couldn’t be human or the like, could it?

After reading Kill them with Kindness it’s kinda scary to imagine that he had to shed his paws in order to get human hands, just for dexterity.

… I realized that this is major spoilers. I don’t mind if this is removed — in fact, I want it to be — and I’ll move the comment/discussion to the reddit. =]

He doesn’t shed everything. Just the outer layers. Fur, teeth, hooves, claws, maybe some skin, that sort of thing.

I like how his teeth are actually sinking into the screwdriver handle even though he’s just holding it. I guess manticores really can eat anything.

    So I’ve recently REALLY gotten into Kory Bing’s Skin Deep (check it out), a story about mythical creatures hiding in human society. Here’s a few pictures I’ve drawn of people I know (most of which don’t actually read the comic, so they’re amazingly good sports).

    I’ve got to hand it Ms. Bing, she’s really good at thinking up believable characters and making interesting settings cause I’ve pretty much been absorbed in drawing stuff based on the comic now.

    I’m currently trying very, very hard to not write a full fledged fan-comic about these people I’ve drawn (or as I like to call it, pulling a Loftlocked).

    But yeah, what do you guys think?

    Cool fan characters!!
