As you can probably guess, our art-trade had a theme. To be honest, I was the one who sort of came up with the idea for the theme because previously she wanted a character from inFamous. (which I was afraid of messing up terribly just because I'm completely unfamilar with the source material)
She still gave me a challenge though. I'll be honest when I say I've never drawn a character as bulky as Walter. Most of my characters are sticks.
Walter from The Mask: The Animated Series. (aka a show none of you ever saw or have any interest in ever seeing because it's based off a Jim Carrey film) I actually drew a character that appears more than twice the entire show! Hooray!
To my watchers who probably are wondering the amount of fanart from this show. Seriously, give the show a chance.
Walter is a silent, hulking figure who's kind of mysterious. Unlike the other guys, you never hear where he came from or how he got like that. He doesn't even talk either, but rest assured, he's dangerous.
I think if I wasn't introduced to this show at the age of 20 and watched it as a kid, Walter would've given me nightmares. He's one of the few cartoon characters I've seen where I seriously looked like he was going to kill his target.
The reason Fish Guy is there is because I wanted him to be looking at someone or else the gesture would look kind of weird without someone to aim the fist-cracking to.
Plus, well, I needed a pathetic character and Fish Guy's as pathetic as they come. His joke is that his mutation gave him the almighty powers of a talking fish, which is basically kind of lay there and stink.
And he ruined Walter's shoes.
Not sure if Fish Guy would be that small but unfortunately the show wasn't very consistent on his size. Plus Walter's huge anyways.
The reason the picture has no traditional background was that I had to alter something in the picture. (the legs. Why are my legs never in proportion?) Plus a lot of my colored pencil backgrounds look weird.
...I'm tempted to see how this picture looks with a colored pencil background anyways.
