Kevin Maher-30 Characters in 30 Days

| December 2, 2010 | 2 Comments

Well since everyone else was doing this I thought I should too! (thanks for the template!) This was my first 30 Characters Challenge and I’m pretty happy with what I’ve created. I actually learned a lot, some quicker photoshop coloring, some shortcuts, and the ability to create characters in an instant. I have been planning on launching my own webcomic, but I was worried about time constraints. This whole challenge taught me that it is completely doable and I have nothing to worry about. Some of these characters will totally be used. It was also interesting to see what characters people found interesting. What creators found interesting was totally different than what my non-artist friends liked. And some things I loved no one else did. Overall I am very happy I did this.

I hope you enjoyed my work. See you in the funny pages!

As it seems all the cool kids are doing this I thought that I would jump on the bandwagon and join in too 🙂

I REALLY enjoyed my first year of doing this and fully intend to take part next year (yes, Tyler, that is a hint that I demand that you do this again! 🙂 ) and am going to ensure that I spend the next twelve months improving with my sketches in the hope that I can not only up the quality level but maybe get closer to 30 characters drawn, as well as created.  Obviously if you want to find out about all 30 of the characters (including the 20 that didn’t make it past just words) you can do so here:

Coming out of this – on top of the fun – I am so very glad to have been able to meet and interact with so many talented and friendly people.   There are some on here that I honestly am in awe of (yes, Mr. Govar, I am looking your way 😉 ) but at least it gives me something to aspire to.  I am now going to definitely use quite a few of my characters in upcoming projects (short-stories, mostly, but potentially a novel) and am actually toying with the idea of a fun webcomic.

So, thanks Tyler, for a great, great idea!

If any of you artists feel the urge to submit your work to inspire creative writers then please don’t hesitate to check out – I can always use more great art!


Fes Works – 15/30 Characters

Well, this was my first year, and I hit my goal to get at least 15 characters. I knew going into this that I didn’t have that much time, but I really thought this was a great opportunity to actually get to work on characters that I can use in the comic… some of which will for sure come into play.

Characters were designed as an “extra” for a pool of background or random characters for my main webcomic, P.S.I.: A Pessimistic Sense of Inadequacy.
