Underworld by Reluin Underworld by Reluin

A team based on 5 character archetypes: Leader, Rogue, Kid, Princess, Bruiser. Persephone’s the leader here, and she enlisted each of these guys in escaping the underworld!
Here's another piece from last year - these guys were made for a character design class with the super awesome Jimmy Geigerich! Jimmy's the best and my art wouldn't be whereever it is without his classes. His small screenprinting company was destroyed in the Jones Falls flooding last month, and they're really needing some help if you can spare a donation! www.gofundme.com/24ewbtxw

oh wow oh wow I have so much to say
ok, i really love all these characters and their individual intricacies and details that make them so unique, wow there's just so much PERSONALITY in all of them
and the art style as a whole is incredible
the almost gritty texture looks so good, i am LOVING everything about this haha wow

I'll keep Jimmy Geigerich in my thoughts too, hope everything is alright on his end

omg, you're right! And the leader must be Lady Catrina, but I don't know the others.

Some of them are more obscure! The far left is inspired by the tattooed Pazyryk/Siberian ice mummy, then the Botan Doro story, Egyptian mummies, the Greek myth of Persephone, and La Catrina on the far right! (:

Is Leader the character with the skull-painted face? Great design and sharp colors. I love how much you can tell about the characters through body language as well.

ah thank you, glad you think so! I always struggle with body language so I'm really glad that's coming across. I think that one's the rogue - the leader is the one with the 3-headed dog! (:
