I wanted to have a really nice piece representing both Nicki and Ross, the main characters of “Lotus For Help,” so I made sure to get this done before I sent my files off to the printers. I was up pretty late, as you can imagine, having done both pieces in the second half of yesterday.
As with the Nicki piece, I used an image from the Lotus For Help sketchbook I’m working on (which…I’m hoping I can actually get finished in time!). I haven’t shown that piece previously, but I completely changed Ross for this version of the image, so I kinda feel better about leaving the grayscale one in the sketchbook since it’s its own version. He looks worried in the original sketch, but I don’t think that’s how Ross perceives the demons he summons. He’s an optimist and kind of a sparkly fellow, so I want him to almost be like a magical girl in demeanor, except instead of magic it’s demons, and instead of a girl, he’s a guy.
I hope you like it! “Lotus For Help” debuts next week, August 20th, at lotusforhelp.com!
