SH: Townsfolk sketches by Turtle-Arts SH: Townsfolk sketches by Turtle-Arts
So, I apologize for not giving you guys much lately. It's mostly because the majority of the work I've been doing lately is for this project, which I'm not sharing too much of anyways. :/ I've been busy doing a bajillion drawings for Sky Herder, and I thought I'd share one little set with you guys just for fun. :) This is a page of rough sketches for some designs of just what "people" look like in this project. Not the main characters- just people in the background. You know, "normal people." XD Nothing too detailed or fancy yet, but I hope you enjoy them just the same. ^^

I have a lot of stuff I've wanted to post but I just keep telling myself "No, if you post it all now, there won't be a point in making the book at the end of the project. " XD


Art, characters, and Sky Herder IP property of :iconturtle-arts:

I wished you'd make a film out of sky herder, so I could buy and watch it

I'm so looking forward to that day :la:
I thought it was a comic ^^;

Oh no. Sky Herder was never made with the intention of being a comic. It was always intended for feature length film format. Because that's the prompt I chose to follow for the class I created it in. XD

No, these are for a specific project so I'd rather you didn't use them as reference. Thank you for asking though. :)

Yes, I like drawing old people, but I don't do it nearly enough. Which, there's an old man character in this story as well who's rather important who I'll be designing soon, so that should be fun. :>

Nice range of character design here. They all clearly belong to the same village and fill out villager archetypes well for a full stock cast.

Urgh. Now I'm going to have to try and draw a whole bunch of people, when I should be working.

I woulda gotten some work done too, if not for Turtle and her rascally drawings!

Great characters! I like them, even if they are just townfolk I like how each one transmits a bit of their own pernosality.

Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! ^^ And yeah, I feel like even the background characters should look like they have a little story to tell. :nod: It would be boring to have bland, generic people in the crowds. :<

Yeah! If they were going to be generic then the whole story would be.
