Little Man, the vertically challenged astronaut to your left, may look lively and adventurous (especially with that groovy ’60s-style jetpack), but up until now his life has been relatively boring–trapped in cryostasis up on the celestial object they call the Moon. In fact, that’s not all he’s been trapped in; the mechanics of his spacesuit forbid him from exiting it (otherwise the outside pressure would kill him). Another fun fact: that’s the least of his problems. He and the rest of Earth are facing a coming apocalypse and the prophesied Final War, and someone a little smaller might need to face danger for once.
To juxtapose against Little Man’s minor size, his series, “Moon Man”, features a few hulking characters such as the weighty marauder to your left–Jug, probably short for “Juggernaut”. Not much is known about this formidable space hunter, but his rad flaming paint job (not to mention the real flames coming from his wrists) is enough to silence most questions in an instant or two.
So! This is the first sketch here on dustlander.wordpress.com. To be clear, I’ve been drawing on paper since I was about three (scratch that, my mom says it’s one-and-a-half), so drawings like this are no strangers to me. I’m just happy to finally get this one posted after a whole month of crazy business (Trek, Scout Camp, family reunion(s), etc.). I have loads of these sketches ready to go, and the scanner is finally working, so expect LOTS of updates in the coming weeks (at least, when I’m not at Driver’s Ed…!).
