Love the first stick guy, and the weird culture clash in the original illo is interesting. Aladdin?ReplyDelete

The story of the little hunchback. Looking back through there, I think I see an assassin silhouette potential.
The first figure's head profile is brilliant - that line from the bottom side of his hat to the tip of his beard is pure orientalist drama. It's the sort of thing that's missing from most fantasy illustration.ReplyDelete

@Richard, yeah, I think these would have character as paper minis or something.ReplyDelete
@zb: cool, that's what I was hoping for. Working on a possible assassin now.
