Hero Character Development

Thanks to suggestions from my Facebook page, I got a kick start to my heros brainstorming sketches. I've come up with mural ideas for the fish and the dog. I'm thinking about adding some text to the mural, like a short description of their powers, or maybe just their superhero name. No, I haven't come up with those. I will see if the client already has ideas for names.

At first, I was drawing the fish as a swimmer, but then I was told a superhero fish HAS TO be able to walk. Duh! 

Here she (yeah, I think of the fish as a "she")is in her natural environment. She is the protector of small sea critters! The turtle is suppose to look happy or relieved. I might have to work on that.

Next is the superhero dog. He flies, he saves, he enjoys a good bone at the end of his day. Notice the bone belt, hehee.

His mural will be set at the end of the day, as he surveys the land, satisfied with all his good deeds and his tasty bone.

Looking forward to seeing how the characters work. Will they be separate, or tied together?

The dog is the bomb.

love it. The fish is inspired. But love Doggie, too. What a great project!
