A character design for a comic book (or graphic novel, if you will) I’m currently working on. Timid Mole is his name. As fitting his character, my goal was to make him as sweetly shifty as possible.
Bit of commentary from the future here, but man oh man is this hard to look at now. Scratch that. It was hard to look at when I originally drew it! Below is a cover to Ghost Squirrel‘s original pitch, back when I was trying to convince people that is was a nice and cheery kid’s show.
It’s just so… uncharacteristically friendly.
Oh well. Still has merit. Nice coloring for example. Read on for the original text that accompanied this image.
