Art Inspiration: Heroes vs. Villains – Braidie

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 past few weeks I posted the student’s original character, the villains and my version that I gave to them. Now its time for the heroes to make an appearance …

Hero 03 – Braidie

Some students modeled their character after popular comics they are familiar with, yet this student wanted to create something very unique. When I first saw this student’s character I right away thought of a hippie from the 1960’s. Overalls, long braids, sandals/flip-flops and then when you add her abilities are healing others and talking to animals, it just screams tree-hugging hippie.

This is where I started when I created the character. I incorporated all of these elements but I pictured her sitting down so that she can be close to the animals. I also made sure that the braids are long enough to fall around her. I then added a cute little bunny that she is hugging; it seemed appropriate for the character.

I showed the student his character and she was happy it and she also loved the addition of the bunny. I hope you enjoy the third hero character from Heroes VS. Villains – Braidie.
