Great sketches! I can see that you're short handed. ;) You know, artists say you need to make sure that the brush spacing is set to zero in order to achieve the best brush stroke and painting quality. While Nebezial says, 'Fuck that shit' and paints excellently. I bet you would be as great if you were told to paint using a wooden stick. Amazing job.

Anyone who has read their Shakespeare knows that the Jesters are the sharp ones, and occasionally the dangerous ones. Something tells me this guy is both - an assassin, perhaps.

I suppose his secrets remain his secrets but does that mean he likes men or that he's not into the sexytimes? XDD

Aha! I thought so by implication but you never know. 

A lot of authors won't write characters who are into the hairier sex. :D

I'm excited. It's nice to see more characters like that, and he looks like fun. 

I have to say I've always liked characters with dramatic face make-up and his personality compliments it nicely :D

I noticed a lot of the comments about him were really irrelevant and didn't ask about his character, so I asked a relevant question I'd wondered since this sketch was put up months ago.

I bought the 1st TPB of Ravine and I'm loving it so far! I have to reread it, it's extremely dense but the world is amazingly detailed and the characters so far have been interesting.

Can't wait for more to come. I'm going to buy Volume 2 when I get home.

I can't wait to see this character in action!

 Being a Jester must have been a scary job, I know that he was the only one who could mock the king with out being killed, because it was his job to keep the king "down to earth". BUT you know that there was at least one jester that took a joke too far with the wrong King and probably ended up dead. Being a jester would be like threading a needle, if you weren't funny enough, you got replace and lost your comfy job, and if you took a joke too far you ended up 6 feet under. 

  "Queen Elizabeth is said to have rebuked one of her fools for being insufficiently severe with her", and fools who didn't show enough restraint were whipped. another scary facet to being a fool was that jesters also where charged with delivering bad news that nobody else wanted to deliver, "when the French fleet was destroyed at the Battle of Sluys by the English. Phillippe VI's jester told him the English sailors "don't even have the guts to jump into the water like our brave French"" 

your "The more you know" moment XD

Do people intentionally forget that many "stuffs' existed before popularized movies/trends? It is certainly irksome to always have to see/read everything being needlessly compared to something else.

On to my question for you, Nebz:
Color palette- When creating an iconic character, uniform is a well utilized tool for the artist- So, what is your take on assigning color schemes to characters within your stories? and (to an equal extent) works you've seen/read by your favourite artists/colleagues?
Do you ply the primaries to your lead character's intentionally? Is there room for the secondaries at the fore?
What do you think your character's think on the topic?

Hoping my impromptu quiz is not an extreme eyesore or headache. Regardless of answer, looking forward to reading book 2. Thanks for sharing :)

generally i try too keep the colors not overly loud but different enough. for instance barnaby here will be palling around with a character named arthur who is a guard and  dresses as one, and khedira who is a shivas... basically a birdlike dragonwoman.
each of them has to look distinctive enough in their palette  to make them clear

especially in crowdshots

as i said i find those comments to be boring. lazy...

i mean dude is a jester, the original thing. joker, kefka those kinds of characters are based on jesters, so instead of saying those characters look like jesters nowadays we go.. those jesters sure do look like joker XD
