Badin and the Secret of the Saami Progress 2015-09-11

The eyes have it
From the color sketch model sheets for a character
Fourteen years ago today, our lives changed dramatically. How we travel, what we judge and the things we do were dictated by the extreme actions of a few men driven by passion to make the world into what they believe is the truth.

On some fronts they won. My country is deeply involved in multiple wars and our enemies have doubled. However, the terrorists lost the most important front in their battle: To turn humanity into servants for their twisted interpretation of Islam. As a Muslim, I am ashamed of those who use my religion as a shield for dirty practices. Friends of mine who are Muslim remember this day with great sadness. They too abhor the actions of those terrorists. We are all working in our own way to prevent another such occurrence. 

When you read Badin and the Secret of the Saami, I think you will see tinges of my effort in regards to current world events: Highlighting what people have in common, seeking mutual understanding and learning from the extreme actions of others so as to stop a bad thing from getting worse.

I hope you find this model sheet abstract interesting. It's based on pencil sketch scan, inked and colored using Manga Studio 5EX. I hope to finish most of the model sheets this weekend and tease you with a few more.
