Meet Quote, the main character of the upcoming webcomic A Beautiful Monstrous Rhapsody! Followers of Happier Times may recognize this character of mine from another post I did a while back titled Clone Wars.
Here, you can kind of see that his design was still a work in progress. At the time, I was unsure of where to go with his character, personality-wise, and just went with the flow on whatever came to me.
See how much his design has progressed over the last few months? Overall, I’m quite happy with how Quote had turned out and it will be exciting to see where he goes in the future as my art style grows.
Back to personality, I have a habit of basing my characters off music. For Quote, I chose The College Dropout by Kanye West.
I kinda loosely based Quote’s color scheme from the dropout bear seen on the cover here. However, I changed things here and there for a lighter tone. I like bright and colorful characters and while the dropout bear is fun, it’s coloring is a bit too dark for my liking.
As with the album (and myself), Quote is a college dropout searching for a life outside the norm. Wanting to branch out and search for a meaning in life, Quote picks up his love for crafting music. A Beautiful Monstrous Rhapsody will feature tons of slice of life moments based on my own experiences!
I hope you all enjoyed reading into Quote’s character. I’m excited to do this for the rest of the cast of A Beautiful Monstrous Rhapsody!
