    CHOW 134 :: The Eclectic, Eccentric Singer

    CHOW 134 :: The Eclectic, Eccentric Singer

    ROUND #134 :: The Eclectic, Eccentric Singer
    DESCRIPTION

    The Eclectic, Eccentric Singer

    Inspiration: Tom Waits "Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards"

    Description: A man or woman who has been around for a long time, their age disguised by wrinkles and scars that the times have written on their face. A person of faith, but not necessarily of a religion, just a power of greater than their own. No man tells them what to do with their life, they are guided by winds and season. A drifter by day and a power of soul by night. They travel from town to town, playing in low-lit bars, drinking to drown out a regretful past. They sleeps when they can, eats what people give them. Their clothes are dated to a time before modern day technology i.e. a tattered suit with old snakeskin boots.

    Their only goal in their memorable life is to sing about their life story, full of tragedy and despair. They has a good heart but life and appearance shows different.

    In short, a vagabond.

    Nah. She's just frightening beyond all reason. We want someone who has some inherent cool about them

    This is kinda funny, I love Tom Waits, and made this quick colorsketch of him a couple of months ago. It will be hard to design a very different character with the same theme, seems like a tough challenge.

    Some reference videos (Tom Waits)

    God's away on Business


    I don't want to grow up


    Chocolate Jesus


    For those unfamiliar with him, he's kind of an acquired taste. Kind of like French Roast.

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    Well, here's a pose. I'm kind of attracted to the more Iggy Pop or Jim Morrison kind of character. Great topic!

    UPDATE: Some base colour & details

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    YIIT - nice dude, loving the violin! Very ace.

    Pixel tuner - looks cool but a bit aerosmith. nice work tho.

    Nils Frykdahl from Faun Fables and Sleepytime Gorilla Muesum is deffinately an inspiration musically and within this brief cool as fuck 'out there' rocker.

    Dont know who owns the copyrights to these images Ive googled.

    Crazy goth guy with a statement.
