Talkin' Heads Bonus Set.
I've always thought the absolute best job would be to get paid to doodle. You know, draw what ever you want and have someone think enough of it to then pay you for it. Well, this project is about as close to that as I'll probably ever get.
Veer approached me about creating a custom stock art set for them. They had seen some game avatar icons I created and wanted me to create a set utilizing the same style. The only limitation they gave me was they wanted all the artwork to be simple black and white and they approved my concept for a set very quickly.
My immediate reaction after such situations is a moment of dread however. Self doubt starts to leak into my conscience and I have thoughts like "If this sucks everyone will see your lousy art." or "What if they end up hating the art and pull the plug?" It didn't last long though. Because honestly I thought this was stuff I'd draw anyway just to entertain myself and now I have a major company willing to pay me to do it. It's a no-brainer!
The bonus set shown above is just a freebie set I'll be giving away to anyone who orders the original Veer set once it's released. None of the images shown in this post are part of the Veer set. This is just to wet your creative appetite.
If you'd like to be notified when Talkin' Heads is available through Veer you can email me to be added to my "Talkin' Heads" list and I'll notify you when it's released. Send your request to:
Sample Talkin' Head "Jester."
I spent hundreds of hours fine tuning over 50 heads in all. (Not including speaking bubbles etc.) They work big or small and the eyes on each head can be moved to make them look where ever is needed.
