Painted Mojo DuMoko

Drawn for Skallywaggs card game.

Another difficulty with the format was that every character had the same amount of space allowed for their leg, torso, and head. Anatomy states that we're almost half leg and only one eighth head- so a certain amount of distortion was required. This enforced structure led to a style all its own.

Mojo DuMoko was challenging on a whole separate level. His tattoos were murder. In order to create the desired effect I wound up drawing him twice. Once without any tattoos. And a second time as a set of disembodied tattoos. Very happy with the end result.

The tattoos are based on those illustrated by the indigenous people of Australia.
