Note: Click twice to read the notes because my handwriting is small :aww:. (Original file was a ridiculous 37.4MB/16,000x12,000 image, so I've had to scale significantly).

First submission in...forever (+1)?

Anyhow, so this is the main character of that novel I have been planning (also forever - or at least for all of my time as a university student). I have decided some of said story might work better for my PhD-devoured time schedule as a comic, first. :D (Hence the character design planning). 

Some of you (if you're still around these parts XD) may remember back when 'Rico' was going to be the primary protagonist of the next story I had lined up - well, because I made so many changes to him over the years, I decided to just change the character entirely, and I created Sebastián. But I suppose you could say making Rico his brother is kind of an 'easter egg' for anyone that's been around here that long (I'm looking at you, C17 :D).

So yeah. This is my main protagonist, Special Agent Sebastián C. Reyes (also a Major in the USAF Reserves). He's from Boston, loves coffee (way too much), can be kind of obsessive about things being neat and tidy and seems to think that he's living a double life in 2 different universes. As people do.

Next task may be to work on a character sheet for his partner, Yuna. Although I've drawn her a couple of times, so I may come back to that later. These things are pretty time-consuming!

Yayz! :heart: S has returned! Hopefully to stay. :) (I'm already working on the next character sheet, so that's the plan anyway :XD: )

Sweet! Glad to hear it. I've been drowning in a plethora of characters lately as well, for another novel I'm splitting my brains over. Ferd was set aside for the time being.

Noooo. Ferrrrdddd :noes: I miss him :) 

Sounds good though, I will look forward to seeing whatever you come up with, if you post things -_- I have so many potential characters who need to be developed in more detail. I tried to limit myself to the main characters, but with the comic idea, there's a bunch of them I'm going to need to draw that aren't even important, like family members or background work colleagues. Ugh. Art can be a nightmare too :)

I kind of miss Ferd too, but my brain has been hijacked by a bunch of samurai from the 1550s.

Drawing a comic is an ambitious project, but I'm sure it's gonna be awesome!! You're brave to take that on. :XD: I can't wait to see what you create! How's Rico doing? I miss him too. One day I'll have to dig out our Rico/Ricardo text and read it again for fun. :3

:lol: Wow, that sounds intriguing :) 

Haha, Rico is doing well I suppose, off in Barcelona, blissfully unaware that his newfound brother (ze main character) is slowly going insane :lol: Yeah, a comic does seem kind of terrifying...but I guess I just don't have the time to tackle the actual novel and a PhD at the same time XD And I'm not sure that much writing would be healthy anyway :XD: At least this way I still have an excuse to draw stuff :dance:

Very nice to see your work again!  Man he is hot!  Love the character sheet you've got here. I remember Rico, been a while. Is Rico in this story?

:lol:! Yeah, it was irritating trying to come up with suitable poses/scenarios, but it worked out in the end :lol: Rico is Sebastián's brother (who lives in Spain), so he'll probably show up at some point, either in a war flashback or some kind of family catch-up thing :D If I ever need to delve more into backstory, he'll be there a lot. :)

I know how that is! :lol:

Oh cool!  Good to know!

Amazing that you could draw him in so many poses and still achieve what he looks like perfectly (I suck at that!). Very, very handsome character indeed!

(You have a new watcher!)

Hey! Thank you very much <3 It was pretty fun to do, and I'm glad I managed to retain consistency. I've drawn him so many times in the last 3 weeks I was starting to doubt it due to over-exposure -_-

I don't post often, but when I do...It's usually something that's taken an age to make and will eat into my research time :XD:

Well the time you put into him is amazing. I think I have a new character crush (JK, but he is beautiful! :heart:) I would love to be able to do that kind of work and maybe some day I will be lucky enough to have such consistency in my own work. I definitely look forward to seeing more of your art, though!

Haha! :D I think the simplification of things as you draw the same person over and over does help though - I was able to reduce him to a series of simple physical traits and colours, which should make drawing him a load of times in the comic a lot easier! :lol: Hopefully I'll have the same luck with the next one :eager:

:hug:

Ah yeah, I suppose that does help! I can't wait to see him in a comic, that'll be so cool!
