This week was back to the sketchbook for a more complicated take on my buddy Ben’s “Fantasy High” character – Chip Mildfir – an athletic Ent who wants to train to become a fighter in this D&D-esque fictional High School. It was a fun creative challenge, and I wish I hadn’t settled on a design so quickly because Ents are one of my favorite mythical creatures and I didn’t want to him to feel like a Groot rip-off. So, I gnarled him up a bit and slimmed him down (he is only a High Schooler after all) and gave him more of a pretty-boy jock face. Expect to see more Fantasy High in the coming weeks, and maybe I’ll keep mixing up the medium. Until next time!
