I've been watching my new copy of The Tick vs. Season One over the last few days, using it as a getaway from my seemingly endless writing chores. The show also helps give me some perspective and balance since the main project I'm presently writing is very epic.
Anyway, the episodes inspired me to take a break from my keyboard and do a quick sketch of the Tick and Arthur. I drew them in a Samurai Jack art style and took some liberties with their designs, simplifying them even further. As for Arthur's exposed belly, that's just for plain, good-old-fashioned comic relief.
Here's the initial sketch: And here are the colors: Thanks for looking.
