Monster City

Giant Monster Comic

This is my favorite comic. It's actually two of my favorite comics and a cartoon: Paul Chadwick's Concrete, Sam Kieth's The Maxx and Big O. I've wanted to see all three of them combined for awhile now.

Ratso The Rat King

Schmitt Indianapolis Comic
New character art updates and clarifies the original Ratso character style.

Ratso is one of the central villains in the blog. His pages are largely separate so I can sort out where he comes into the story. He plays a large part with the history of the Magic Shop, Miette and her Grand Dad.

He's like a Morlock - a dweller in the periphery of culture that only wanders in and out of the book to provide some foreshadowing. It's his rat wave that does all the real damage. Ratso thinks he's Dr. Gone from The Maxx.

Original digital inks for this character without shading or color in AI.

Thought that I would also post some process pieces with each one of the final images to provide an idea on how this stuff gets thrown together from inks to colored art.
