Ethan Russo – Concept and creation

ethans1

I’ve been working a bit more on Ethan Russo, a character from my Sea of Souls project. It was this character that started off the whole thing as it was him that (oh so cliche) came to me in a dream – with his portal nightmare in tow.

It’s taken me a while to work him out and I’ve got a long way to go!

His surname; Russo, came from looking at my father drinks cabinet and seeing a bottle of Russo limoncello; hardly exciting stuff as it’s a common name, but I’ve often taken inspiration for names from things around me.

For example, Argur – Feracils demon – is named after a particularly smelly cheese!

Out of the two sets, I don’t know which one I prefer – the top of the two was how Ethan originally looked, but I have precious little of him drawn so I wouldn’t be losing any sense of attachment or anything if I did switch.

I think the best way to go forward is to do some more sketching and writing and see what sticks.
