Mez Character Study: 2004

Mez is a character I created and developed while in High School. The concept for the character is that he is a prototype war machine that never completed his systems setup, and so doesn’t know just how powerful he really is. He travels the galaxy looking for work. In the inaugural series he found work as a bouncer at a bar on one of the many alternate Earths.

This image created in 2004 is representative of the cartoony style I began developing that year. The drawing was originally a hand sketch which I then completed in Illustrator. The hard lines and colouring in illustrator adds to the cartoony and robotic look to these illustrations. I carried this style through to some of the more recent work featuring Bu & Mez, the Corks, and the 2008 Red Forest story.
