After months and months of failing to draw anything halfway-decent, I find myself doodling with the brush tool in Sai and staring at this at one in the morning. It’s not something I’m overly proud of, but I think it’s cute. And it actually serves a purpose for me.
These three (as well as two others, stereotypical goons) came to me in a dream some months ago. From left to right, they’re Nolan, Dominic, and Ariana. From what I could tell in the dream, they were all in a house. The house belonged to Dominic but Ariana lived there too. Nolan was a guest, being treated courteously even though he and Dominic were enemies. They were both spies, I figured, and Ariana had some sort of romantic connection with Dominic. But Ariana seemed to be the only one who understood when Nolan let a certain phrase slip:
"Down the Rabbit Hole."
Obviously, Nolan looked like a young Bob Dylan, but Dominic and Ariana looked like mods (though Ariana’s dress was longer than I depict it here, and Dominic’s suit was white) so I figured I’d try to fit them into some sort of espionage thriller set in the ’60s or ’70s, like Austin Powers with less parody.
So…yeah. I’ve got more to the story, but just like every other story I’m “working on” it’s at a bit of a standstill.
I just wanted to post the most complete drawing I’d done in months. >w>
