#25 Rick, The Omega Kid

| November 27, 2010 | 1 Comment
This post is the most special to me by far for two reasons.

First, it stands as a testament to how much the 30characters challenge & everyone participating in it have inspired me. I came to this purely as a writer & storyteller. That is still what I am. But I never imagined that by the end of the month I would stretched my other artistic muscles this much. I have not inked anything since middle school (which was a long time ago!). And I have never, ever scanned and colored something on photoshop. Yet, here it is.

Second, this guy represents my most ambitious and meaningful project to date. He’s Rick, The Omega Kid! An eleven year old boy entrusted to wield the awesome power of the Omega Amulet because of his kind heart, wild imagination and unyielding courage. His continuing adventures, of which I have already scripted a couple and planned out a ton, are aimed at kids and those of us still young at heart. He’s my answer to the yearning I feel to create something that may someday inspire kids the way these type of stories inspired me. Lofty ambitious perhaps but if it brings a smile to one kid’s face then mission accomplished, you know?

If you want to learn more about him, head over to my blog and you can read the very first episode in The Omega Kid series: http://roshow.tumblr.com/scripts

    Congrats on breaking outta your comfort zones and inking/scanning/coloring! He looks cool. I’m right there with you on this challenge. As it winds down, I’m almost sad, (almost, my wrist is killing me). The challenge has lit a fire creatively under many of us. I’m glad to see you moving forward with the Omega Kid series and proud to have seen you work up to it!
