We MUST stop meeting like this! Well since you’re here… I promised last week the evolution of the character of Guru from our QWIXOTIC Webcomic Series. And today, I deliver… big! Which is also the only way to describe the second concept sketch of Guru by our artist Vince Sunico… BIG.
As I said last week, the only thing missing from the 1st Concept Sketch of Guru, was his physically intimidating presence. Vince took that feedback and has Guru make up for it in spades! I mean Guru looks badass! Which is exactly what we wanted. His bulk, and the modification of his clothing to suit the more South Asian styles. Obviously this is something he’ll don when he requires to… enter the fray, so to speak.
The above sketch shows us the other, rarer side of Guru that won’t be featured… too much… (in the beginning of the series) but it is a side that we will get to see at point. I mean sure, he’s the wise and aged, wisdom spouting former warrior, but at point point… everyone comes out of retirement.;)
Stay tuned for the final Concept Sketch of Guru from the QWIXOTIC Webcomic Series. Next week I bring you the revised and more subtle version of Guru that we will see initially, based off of this design. In the meantime let me know in the comments below just how bad-ass this Guru looks. ‘Cuz, he does!
Till then… marvel at the bulging pectorals of Guruji!

The QWIXOTIC Webcomic exists in a world of economic breakdowns, social strife and chaos, political pretense and control. A world where the majority of people are trying to survive. They are trying to do anything and everything they can to stay out of the way of higher powers battling for control, feed themselves and stay safe. There are some however, who have taken up arms for a just cause, like Humayra. Some who are fighting to change the way the world is, on a grander scale, like The 8 1/2.
However there are some, who have just left the world behind and found a little corner to make their own peaceful home. There are some, like the Guru.
Guru is a man with principles. He was an idealistic man who lived by the warrior code of Sikhism. Like many in the world of QWIXOTIC, he suffered a great loss. He severed all ties to the world, wanted nothing to do with the affairs of society and placed himself in exile. However, one link remains. Guru trained Humayra in the martial arts of his culture. He taught her how to fight, and reluctantly, passed on his own ideals to her existing high morals.
Now she seeks his advise during a time of crisis. And Guru has to choose. A time is coming when he will have to decide if his principles allow him to sit idly by and do nothing as a group of young and honorable girls go fight for a cause that affects them all? Or will he disgrace the memory of a loved one by breaking a promise to never again shed blood?
The time is now. And we will see the reawakening of a long dormant man, who has more to pass on to the young characters of QWIXOTIC, than anyone else.
