Arctic Myths - The Child Stealing Ogress

Some more development work for the Arctic Myths project I am currently on. Here we have the Child Stealing Ogress with her distinctive Inuit facial tattoos, crooked teeth and wild hair. The Inuit seem to have many stories of Nasty Critters wandering in from the Tundra to steal children and commit atrocities. I can imagine that living in the extreme climate and terrain of the frozen north would impel you to tell your kids just about anything to keep them close at hand. Getting lost up there is pretty much certain death.

Ok, the top centre and bottom centre of the top page. I would be hanging onto my parents legs and not letting go, if I thought that Ogress was waiting form around the corner.

As always Larry, top work. xxx

Once again, very cool. I like how her teeth definitely set these sketches appart and give her a strong sense of character.

Thanks Emma - I have 6 or 8 different characters to design and keeping them all different is not going to be easy.
