It ain't hard to Tell....

Happy Holidays Fam!

I just wanted to show off another sketch of the main character from my graphic novel getting his "rhyme-on". I wanted to draw him in a pose that is dynamic, but still captures the look and feel of a Rapper on stage or in a battle.

My DJ character and his virtual pal. I really want to show the idea of hip-hop in the future and take the concept of the "dee-jaying" to the next level.

Another sketch of Mel, one of the main characters in my hip-hop inspired graphic novel i'm currently working on.

Check the Rhyme yal!

These are some illustrations for my hip-hop graphic novel. Since my main character is a Rapper, I wanted to draw a few rap poses and show him in action holding his microphone.

This is a redesign of my main character for my story. I wanted to change his style up a bit from the previous one (See my September blog for reference). This story takes place in the year 2035, so I wanted his clothes to have a l slightly more futuristic hip-hop look to them. My inspiration for his design was based off some of my favorite Rappers in the game right now such as Nas, and Lupe Fiasco.

New Character Designs for my Graphic Novel

Here is an earlier design for one of the main characters in my hip-hop graphic novel. I'm still working out a few tweaks, but I basically wanted to a cute, female hip-hop character to compliment the main character in the story. Her name is Mel.
