WIP: Warren

Need to finish up this guy in Flash like I did with Mike, but I wanted to get this done before bed. (it's so distorted because my scanner's still dead, this was the best my laptop's webcam could get, and even then I had to play with it and filter it to get it to look good. This is also as LARGE as it gets.)

Warren is Donovan's boss, landlord, and old family friend. (He called him Uncle Warren back when he was a kid.) Warren knew Donovan's father, served with him in the military, and even stood as his best man at the wedding. After his death, Warren took it upon himself to be the male figure in Donovan's upbringing, but left when Donovan was around eleven, moving cross-state. When Donovan moved over there to go to college, Warren gave Donovan a part-time job at the bar he'd established, and fixed up the upstairs of the building to act as an apartment for him to rent. As of now he's in his late forties/early fifties.

Anyhoo, I'll update this post with the inked and colored version when I've got it. Got stuff to handle tomorrow so it could be a couple days.

New Character Design: Mike

This was done a couple weeks ago, on paper at the Motor City Comic Con. Unfortunately, around the same time, or shortly before, my scanner decided to crap out on me.

This was imported using the camera on my laptop, not the best way (and also why I'm not posting the original sketch). Cleaned it up, inked and colored it in Flash.

This is Mike, one of the prime secondary characters (almost the second protagonist, for how often he's involved, but not really a viewpoint character). He's Donovan's best friend, a post-college jock who hasn't really figured out what he wants to do with his life, aside from sleep with every available woman in the tri-county area.
