This is a character design for my upcoming Graphic Novel I have decided to work on. Its basically a story about Jack, a guy who has long since lost all sanity. A past of pain and suffering has
turned him into a murderous maniac who turns killing into his own special form of art.
Intelligent but crazy, he has committed dozens upon dozens of murders and managed to escape
the authorities unsuspected of anything. One day, however, Jack is diagnosed with a terminal
illness that now threatens his artistic masterpiece he has spent half his life preparing for.
Broken hearted and facing the growing idea to redeem his soul before he dies, the devil
himself rises to confront him. He proposes to Jack that he will allow him to continue existing with
his soul bound to Satan's, so long as he continues his artistic murders which Satan finds intriguing.
Jack finds this at first too good to be true and accepts without thinking about it. Eventually,
however, He begins to realize the disturbing side effects to being bound to hell itself. Not
only this, but Death himself has grown jealous of Satan's interest in Jack and feels threatened
by his artistic way of killing, and so he begins plotting Jack's demise behind Satan's back. All
this and the treat of a Private Investigator who has over the years finally has the evidence to end
everything he has created, Jack is torn between giving up and redeeming his life, or being drawn
even further into madness, and an eternity in hell.
This is my design for Jack at the moment, I feel happy with the way it turned out but might update it in the future. Two parts I would like to change are the hair and feet probably, I feel like they work here but maybe I will try some others to see how they look :) This is NOT the actual comic drawing of him but a detailed pencil drawing of his character, instead. I will post more characters in the future to come! :)
