This is a substitute post for my missing Friday post.
If the last picture was all about the weapon, then this one is all about the sub-weapon! I started sketching this one out before checking what gear the player wanted. I had the squid posed with a raised left hand, which I didn’t really have an idea for how it would fit into the picture. Maybe the character was taunting? After checking that the weapon was going to be a .96 deco I decided I’d depict the character as throwing a Splash Wall and making a hasty retreat behind it.
Unfortunately there wasn’t really the space for the splash wall, so I erased the original portrait sketch and restarted in landscape. Even then I didn’t leave enough space at the top of the page for the splash wall to fit but I think the idea is there.
Maybe it’d be a better picture without the Splash Wall at all, but I want to draw one so there! Next part is to decide on a style to paint this up in.
