TOKAN, despot of Mars

| November 5, 2010 | 0 Comments

Tokan is taken from the names of Alex TOth and Gil KANe. I wanted to do a robot character, and when I drew the face it had a 1950s look to it, so I ran with that. Since he’s a robot I’d blow off one hand so I wouldn’t have to draw it, which gave me the idea to render him as a sort of “Silver-Age Terminator.” Yeah, sure saved a lot of time creating custom Illustrator brushes for the wires, sparks and smoke. *smacks forehead* I hope you like it! 🙂
