Runner - My final project from my drawing class with Jake Parker
The story revolves around a young Korean-American track athlete who goes to live in Nigeria in the hopes of learning from some of the legendary African runners who dominate the sport. He ends up living in a city that was built over a wildlife reservation, and is as a result haunted by the ghosts of the animals that once lived there. These animal ghosts attach themselves to individuals to whom they feel a certain affinity, causing them to adopt peculiar behaviors. One such individual, a Nigerian man posessed by the spirit of a crazed hyena, goes about using live hyenas to terrorize civilians in an attempt to drive them from the city so that the area might return to its wild state. Meanwhile, our Asian protagonist is visited by the spirit of a benevolent cheetah who is drawn to him by their common obsession with speed. The two band together, becoming a sort of vigilante force, and fight to stop the man behind the hyena attacks.
cliomancer’s half-orc character tecuani!! this is my favourite commission i have done so far, really neat character, really cool design.
i’ll post everyone’s—if they want me to—when i finish them all but i’m waiting on some commissioners atm so i figured i’d remind you that i can beat up your character too for the low low price of 20$ (or just draw them, like, in general) and there are a few spots left since somebody had to drop
