So I’ve been practicing Illustrator a lot lately. My hope is to eventually make a web game based on Ikiru, the poorly-drawn ornery ninja janitor that my friend Dylan and I created back in high school. The original comic was notable for its hideous art and grotesque violence. The web game will embrace both these aspects of the original as it brings the comic into the digital age.

Here is my first crack at a hero shot of our protag, Ikiru.

He does some serious damage with that mop.

The final game will require that I learn a lot more coding than I already have, but for now I am having a blast with making the characters in Illustrator. I’ll post more as I make them.
