2010-09-02 - Filler - Character Sketches 1

Artist Comment
This is a sketch of the Ghoul that appeared in recent strips. This was drawn AFTER the first page it appeared on. I later added the silhouette in the first panel to make it less blank. As opposed to the "traditional" undead, this creature is a type of demon (closer to the original myth), and represents fear of death. based on the original interpretations, I tried to make it look humanoid, corpse-like, with the features of animals like hyena or goat. In this design, it's rather rat like, so it doesn't fully reflect my original concept, but it's not far, and the rat mixes with the death theme quite well.
