#6 Thomas Chandry

| November 6, 2010 | 8 Comments

Thomas Chandry is a man of average fortune and great expectations, though he has ever been more curious than wise. His father, a proper English lord with an estate and wealth rivaling the wealthiest in London, died suddenly one late autumn day of influenza, leaving only a strange contraption to his struggling son, and bestowing his esteemable fortune on a woman none in all of England had heard of. After months of attempting to find the whereabouts of the mysterious woman, the Chandry estate was given over to the crown for upkeep and reimbursement. This of course left Thomas homeless and without the means to support himself, so he did what any proper Englishman would do: he got a job.

He moved from the countryside to London and took residence in the upper study of the tailor he worked for, bringing along the few possessions the crown did not claim, and quickly learned the fine art of theivery. Working for a tailor did not afford him the lifestyle he had grown accustomed to, and so his life of crime began. It was only when the tailor had had enough and thrown him out, that Thomas truly hit rock bottom, and remembering the odd contraption his father left him, decided to pry off the bits of brass and silver pieces to sell. On fiddling with the contraption by the English channel, he inadvertantly activated it and set about events that would forever change his life.

  1. Love the fluid motion and the costume design. Hell, the costume design you’ve done on all your characters have been really nicely done. Great work. Very Shakespearean.

      Thanks Ethan! Really appreciate it, mate. Clothing and textures I tend to spend a good chunk of time on, so it’s great to hear such feedback ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Jane Wankmiller says:

    His right hand holding the sword is spot-on. Love it! And his gesture is great–the inertia is almost palpable.

  3. saulone says:

    Thanks Jane ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah I wanted to give him a lot of movement, and think in some ways he’s a bit too animated. Giving him billowy sleeves and those pants are useful in accenting his lines and movements.

  4. Violet says:

    Fantastic! I love the pose!
    I’m also very intrigued by his story… I’d love to see more ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Bobby Timony says:

    Yes, the intriguing characters you’ve been dishing up make me wonder what kind of awesomeness is about to be unleashed on comics.

      Thanks, Bobby!

      If all goes well I’ll be unleashing some the first part of next year…if all goes really well, I might be unleashing things back to back…:|
