Last week I devoted way too much to designing this little guy, but it was a of of fun and a nice break.
Why take so much time to draw an owl themed knight? I will tell you why. Yachtclub Games putting out a game later this year called Shovel Knight, and part of their Kick Starter campaign was an art contest. The winner got the $500-tier rewards and the possibility of the character making it into the game. Sadly I did not win, but I did get an honorable mention, and some pretty cool complements (check out the comment they left on the picture). But the best news is that they haven't picked the character that they are going to add into the game, so there is still hope!! Tweet at them to add @frakfraco's Knight Owl to the game!! Here is their twitter handle @YachtClubGames.
Below is the presentation I emailed them. ENJOY!
• Pros: He is as fierce as he is inquisitive, and his whit is as sharp as his armor; the perfect party guest.• Cons: He is very nosey and is quite the gossip.
