Ned Kelly Zaraganba - Dolan Kart Contest Entry by LeoMitchell Ned Kelly Zaraganba - Dolan Kart Contest Entry by LeoMitchell
Here is my entry for Planet Dolan’s Dolan Kart art contest. Tasked with designing a dark/spooky themed skin for a member of the PD cast for their mobile-app racing game. Here I’ve drawn Zaraganba dressed as Aussie outlaw, Ned Kelly, in all his armoured glory! :flagofaustralia: Complete with purple Cassowary steed. If there is one thing I’ve learned from drawing this, it’s that I bloody love that cassowary.purple heart bullet 

I’ve included a speed-paint video with commentary detailing the thoughts and process behind the design. Honesty, I don’t know what people are going to make of my first speed-paint with a commentary. But just like when I did the Lord Shen Documentary all those years ago, I’m curious and willing to take the risk. I put a lot of thought and work into this piece that I felt the need to talk about it.  #DolanKart

I was so thrilled when I found out I was one of the finalists!!! I’m so excited!!! Excited I’m so honoured to be put alongside all these other incredible designs. I just want to say a massive thank you to those who voted for my design! This was so much fun to be part of! Congratulations to the winner! :D In case you’re curious, I voted for Vulture Melissa. ^^

I love the concept and the design of the character. The lines are clean and really contrast with the coloring and shading.

The concept of a cassowary for a mount is silly but it's awesome, and the concept for the armor plating in this world is also novel. And then there's the character's face, not quite human but not too far from human-like, this almost reminds me of Ralph Bakshi's Wizards or the Oddworld games to some extent; and you know what, I like it.

This looks like this could be a new, fun, adventurous project that I hope to see more of.
What do you think?
