So my character Russel, who I don’t really talk about as much but I do love him a lot. Part of the inspiration of my Haunted Hotel story comes from a dream where I enter the hotel after being stalked by someone out in the cold street, the hotel was my only safe place. However, this horrible presence stalked and terrorized me while I crawled up the stairs, yet once I reached the top, a voice from the bar behind me asked if I needed something to drink. And there he was, extending out a strong drink to ease the stress. We always dream about our knight in shining armor and certainly wanted to replicate that experience in the story. Even thought Russel doesn’t leave the bar section much, he’s still Milly’s only source of faithful company until she starts bringing in people to stay at the hotel, and even then she prefers to hang out with him. However, he’s been alone behind that bar stand for quite some time, who’s gonna stop him from taking a swig every now and then.
This is a set of drawings I did here to help work out his face and expressions some more so that he’s more active and ‘alive’ looking then I’ve drawn him in the past. I like where it’s going and I’m becoming more comfortable drawing him now, certainly as I’ve been fleshing out his personality in my head better. ONE DAY…I’ll share more with you…I’m just playing around more now.
I’ve drawn him up before here and I’ll post some more naughty stuff on this blog of mine as well in time. Enjoy.
