Art Inspiration: Heroes vs. Villains – Mnose

As part of the final assignment in my resent drawing club, I had the students create their own hero or villain. Their characters had to have up to 2 powers/abilities; a unique name and they had to indicate if they were either a hero or villain. The students also wanted me to redraw their character, in the comic book style, once they had handed their original in. I needed the original as a reference and I wanted them to do the work. The variety I received was amazing and it inspired me to create a wide range of characters.

I began with my version of the villain’s leader and in the next few weeks I will post the student’s original character and my version that I gave to them.

Villain 04 – Mnosa

Some students modeled their character after popular comics they are used to, this student had an idea of what she wanted and never wavered. She wanted something unique from the costume to the choice of weapon and powers. One thing that she insisted was that her character has red eyes.

I took the student’s character and noticed that it looked like an elf from the Lord of the Rings. I asked the student if the ears of the character were pointed, she said yes. I drew her in an action stance making sure the “chain mace/flail” was in motion as if she was twirling it. I drew in the ears and coloured the eyes red, yet I wanted to add something a bit dramatic to the character. I noticed that the she drew the character with braided hair, so I drew in a braid but with encircling her. It added a more dramatic and mysterious look to the character.  

I showed the student his character and she was happy with a smile from ear to ear. I hope you enjoy the fourth character from Heroes VS. Villains – Mnosa.
