|Blue pencil and inked character design of King Mudsok, the beloved leader of the Molten People.|
This one is a character I have been developing for a humorous story that takes place underground. His name is King Mudsok. Not sure where I got the name, but it popped into my head as soon as I finished drawing him. He is the king of the Molten People, a tribe that is at war with the Mucklugs, (a tribe of underground plant people.)
I see his character as being one who intimidates those who meet him. His voice is deep and rough and his size is pretty impressive. He speaks with a loud aggressive tone that vibrates the surrounding area. But underneath all that tough persona lies a very emotional, loving and caring soul. He really is a softie -- made of stone.
King Mudsok is a part of one of my many children's book stories for my "Timmons and the Lumpy Bumpy Monster" series. I'll try to find the Mucklug leader, Zoobi-Dang and post it later this week.
