Nice concept

If you would model this how would you do that, would you draw some reference pictures? Like from the front and sides, or would you just model it from that concept?

GreyFox, im at a point i can model from a sketch like this but i still usally do a rough front and side view just to speed up the proportion parts of modeling.

Whichy, yea once i get the ape tut done i might model him...

Another character i did last night.

Yeah, looking real good!

A 3D comic book sounds cool.

Needs to be a good story for it to be worth all the work though.

I like your drawing style man.

It reminds me of my favorite comic series - Asterix and Obelix - by Udazo

Great work you're are a very good 2d artist. I'm really good at drawing what i see, in front of me, but i for the life of me cannot draw something from my own head.
