That Guy

I picture him living just at the edge of a ancient jungle, close to a tourist town. Maybe one of those cruise ports in South America. Trying to sell rats milk to frightened Midwesterners fresh off the boat for a day of shopping. Thats it.....his backstory is coming together. Perhaps he has befriended a young girl named Lucia after he brought her dead cat back to life.  She brings him rotted bread and fish heads in secret after her parents forbade her from every making contact again after the reanimated cat began to decompose on the family couch.

When the bugs begin their nightly song and the moon rises, he squats near a small fire and tells Lucia of a time long ago when his kind ruled this land.  He blows a special powder into the fire to conjure visions of this lost kingdom as Lucia watches in wonder.

For his magic powder, Lucia has named him Professor Sprinkles.

There you go...no needing to guess what this guy is all about now.

Sweet character! I love your description too. The image really did beg the question, and now I'm quite satisfied.

Very awesome! I have admired your digital painting approach for a while now. I love the confidence in your brushwork! Also really enjoy your color pallet. About time I said something.
