I've started a Trilobite Boy webcomic on Tumblr! This is the first panel.

I'm also using these as a semi-daily exercise to practice painting and drawing, mostly digitally. Most are done in 30-45 minutes. They're a little crude compared to what I usually do, but I'm hoping to learn as I go.

The tail comment is still there, but I've changed my mind about the trilobite boy thing. Never mind.

But still, how does the tail work out? Does it hand out of his pants or what?

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner!

The tail disappears: he usually has a mostly human body. When he sleeps, chitin sometimes grows over his body and he enrolls. It sloughs off upon waking. Great for his roommate to trip on in the morning. ;-)

Ah don't worry about it.

So it's a constant regenerating thing, like a snake skin. That helps explain a lot. Thanks!

So wait, does he have a tail? how does that work out?
Also, can I create my own trilobite charector, if I give you credit in the artist comments and a link to your page?
