Character preview - Funkle by scythemantis Character preview - Funkle by scythemantis
One of the many unique characters to be featured in the upcoming ebook for the Mortasheen roleplaying game!

Funkle is one of Mortasheen city's esteemed "Holders," veteran monster keepers who operate their own battle arenas and school younger keepers in their respective disciplines. As the holder of genetics, Funkle teaches challengers the devastating power of biological engineering, modifying his monsters with bizarre viral strains and infectious mutant genes he develops in his own laboratory. Rumored to have once been human, Funkle is his own most trusted test subject, and ultimately hopes to transform himself into what he believes is the highest state of life - a virus.

Funkle is considered one of Mortasheen's handsomest theoretically male organisms, and dabbles in modeling on the side.

Edited to be slimier and stinkier.

What program do you use to colour all of these? I love the effect they have.

Paint Tool Sai! It has to be downloaded with an English crack and I can't remember where I got it, but it's by far the BEST program for drawing and coloring. Photoshop was always the most popular choice, but was mainly an image editor that you could happen to draw in. Sai is like if photoshop had been designed specifically for drawing :)

I don't like to be one of those "this reminds me of..." people [honestly, I rarely think that too heavily on anything] but this totally reminds me of the pleasure GELFS in Red Dwarf. VERY COOL, in any case.

They do look a bit similar, but ah well...there's only so many ways to draw a heap of gooey green flesh, and those are a dime a dozen right? : p

I can see him talking like Professor Dink, or Jerry Lewis' Nutty Professor.

Most of Mortasheen's males are judged by the luster of their mucous membranes, the vigor of their flagellum spasms and their bronchial wheeze.
Of course, the ladies just love Funkle 'cause of his iron hard set of eight-pack sphincters (and the size of his pseudopod).

Actually from a serious, biological perspective, in a city as polluted as Mortasheen, these traits would be somewhat desirable (focusing on filtration and excretion, as well as the generally desirable musculature, dexterity and reproductive fitness).

I'm imagining the fall sweater catalogue, and a bowler hat for some reason...

The, uh, for lack of a better word, moist colouring on this is very nice, smoother than ever, I think.
