#4 – Arinn, drawn by Beausephus

| November 4, 2011 | 4 Comments



CONCEPT: A savage alien life form who is pursued and eventually befriended by intergalactic bounty hunter KRITON.  Arinn is pure rage and animal instinct, but can communicate coherently by “emotional telepathy” – projecting his impressions, mental images, and emotions into the mind of others.  Arinn begins an alliance with KRITON, who he considers the only person in the galaxy as bitter as he is.



Arinn was created by my greatest childhood friend for our Elementary School comic book series, ARKON COMICS.  Arinn was essentially a savage Lobo meets Wolverine character.  My friend created basic images of the character and I tweaked them a bit as I drew most of the stories.  We teamed him up with my character KRITON, and then developed a back story where their uneasy alliance began.

Arinn’s method of communication via “emotional telepathy” was a wy to keep him savage and uncontrollable but still a character with more than just bloodlust and Wolverine style bone claws (decades before Wolverine himself had bone claws).

My friend, sadly, passed away when we were 18, so I knew that I had to include some of our creations in this challenge.  I am more than proud to share some of my happiest childhood memories with everyone.


Thanks for checking out my stuff,

About the Author ()

Teacher, Playwright, Performer & Superhero Enthusiast. My first crayon drawings were of Superman and Captain America. I always wanted to draw comics but never followed that passion beyond some self-published zines and forays into early internet comics. I've worked in various aspects of graphic design and fooled around with a spray can at various stages of my life, keeping my pen busy and full of various inspirations for the doodles in the margins of my notebooks. Inheriting an iPad changed my productivity with the ability to draw, edit, color and post onto the internet via one device in the limited time I have to mess around with my doodles and drawings. My 5-year-old son is my biggest fan and the main reason for my artistic renaissance. He's the reason I'm drawing more often and the person I draw the most for. For the 30 CHARACTERS challenge this year, he is my co-conspirator and collaborator. His excitement and innocent love of superheroes and drawing has kept my inner cynic/critic at bay and we are having a blast this year making up a whole new universe of heroes, robots and monsters for the internet. -updated Oct. 2012
