I was drawing this at work during break the other week. I had ideas in mind to do a story that is exclusive from the ASHWORTH: Tales of the Cursed Wombat series, so that I can alternate and experiment with more than one idea in one shot.

For this story I was probably thinking that the setting would be of the Victorian era or the Resonance period. The theme I still haven't figured out but I may probably want to explore the life of a privateer or a rescue/protection squad for the noble kingdom.

The characters involved will be the fox character I used in GRAND HUNTER - Duke Vienna, and his crew (including Salah). Should I find the right story, setting and theme I'll start to establish new names for the characters.

Starting with the character you see above I want him to be of English background mixed with Spanish/Italian ethnicity. I'll probably call him Alexander because I want the main character to treat justice as his bread and butter. I found the name on the site that helps decode the meaning behind many of the popular Spanish names used in real life and in literature: [link]

ALEJANDRO: Spanish form of Latin Alexandrus, meaning "defender of mankind."

And if you're wondering where that scar came from, well you'll just have to find out in future won't ya? ;)

YAY MY FAVORITE FOX IS BACK!!!!! Can't wait to see Salah too!! ;) This drawing is so nice.... reminds me of how amazing all of your other drawing were too. I just got the memo today about you discontinuing Grand Hunter, I'm sorry to hear that... was such a good comic. Good bye Grand Hunter.

Yeah look who is! That's nice to know that some characters from the 2nd original series is staying as another entity but with similar design!
So you are thinking in an Alexander's kind of name, right? In portuguese, it's Alexandro. Latin was the original language of both portuguese, spanish and italian, so chosing the ancient name will refer all of them.
Anyway good job.

Yeah I look forward to utilising the other characters that were featured in GRAND HUNTER - but this time done in a completely different setting.

I believe so!

wow! simply wonderful, I think the name Alexander suits him so well... and the scar could be an honour medal of justice that distanted to stay on his chest to say that he is "defender of mankind."
the background is sunset or sunrise I think, your mixture of colour and the way you shaped the clouds is fasinating!( I still can't draw them well.... ^^;) the shading is WONDERFUL!
thinking about that era you put the story on is amazing. specially if there was a person like Newton explores the gravity! LOL
it's a strange idea but it would be cool if you add couple of eastern charchters for example of arabians or persian people. if you find it intresting I'm ready to give you some info about it. ;)

Thanks for the feedback there Black7shadow!

Interesting how you mentioned of Eastern characters that hail from the Arabian or Persian provinces. That sounds like a pretty neat idea and one that you may very well see in the graphic novel one day. ;)

thanks Elson, BTW, the name is Shade. :)
I think it would look so cool since it is an era that is freedom from middle age strange believes and an era that they liked to have some connection with those country in order to improve their self. and specially on science... specially when they tried to learn alchemy from them and the result which was creation of magic.
since I'm from these countries ( my parents are Arabian and I borne in Iran) I can give you a lot of help in case you need. ;)

The details on this has to be the biggest strength of this picture. It really make his body stand out, and the coloring and shading do a great job of adding to the details too. I really like how his face and eyes came out along with his facial expression, and the background came out very good too.

I'm just asking, does the light come from bottom? I'm not sure whether it's background light or light from the foreground.

Either way, great picture!
