Sikh Yoda! 1st Concept Sketch of Guru from QWIXOTIC!

Hey all. I bring you tidings of joy, along with artwork, as promised last week. 

Now, we’ve spoken about Guru a few times over the last couple of weeks. He was even a late addition into the Qwixotic Posters during FanEXPO’11. It was kind of a spoiler, however, the whole purpose of this Blog has been to document and record the progress of our Qwixotic Webcomic.

So, with that in mind, in the next few weeks we’ll get to see the art evolution of the character of Guru, with notes from me and Gui to Vince and how he came about. But before that, check out the first ever concept sketch of Guru from QWIXOTIC Webcomic, by Vince Sunico of Spent Pencils!!

I know what you’re all thinking. ‘This isn’t the bad ass Sikh Yoda we were promised!! Rip off!!’ But rememeber this was the FIRST concept sketch. And looking back, he actually looks does look a lot like Yoda in this interpretation than the final product. However, Gui and I wanted Guru to be a strong character. Not just in his impact to the story, but his principles, ideals, etc. This first sketch works for ALL of that. However, we also wanted Guru to be a physically strong character. That’s the only downside to this sketch.

We wanted Guru to look deceptively big. He’s always going to be dressed in traditional South Asian clothes, so there’s not much of his body that we’ll see. However we’ve got plans with Guru where he makes a compromise, that’ll see him in… the other kinds of situations that comics are famous for. *wink* No, not slapstick comedy. *facepalm*

Let us know what you think of this initial sketch, in the comments section below. See if you can guess the next step that Vince came up with to make Guru have a strong physical presence in the Qwixotic Universe.

‘Till next week… QWIXOTICANS Ho!!
