The Shankill Butchers

SECOND PROJECT!

Alright so apparently there's no way to create another project in skillshare (or at least I didn't find one in my simple search), so I'm repurposing this one.

I'm a big fan of the Decemberists.  They have very vivid characters and imagery in their songs, so I decided to create a set of characters based off a song I particularly like, "The Shankill Butchers".  The feel I'm going for is a rag-tag group of bandits.  Creepy, murderous, but still cartoony and goofy.  

UPDATE: Added bony text to give the piece a poster feel:

UPDATE: Rendered in Photoshop!  Really happy with how it's turned out so far... just need to figure out a background for it.

UPDATE: Blocked in the colors here in Illustrator:

INITIAL SKETCH:  I think I've got a good variety of characters here... the working man thug, the wealthy sinister chap, and the drunken reveler wild card.
