I created this guide to drawing Graystripe a few years ago. It’s always cool to see other artist’s interpretation of a character I designed so please send me any of your drawings!
You can download the pdf with additional pages here: Graystripe Drawing Packet.
His look and my style have evolved a bit since I drew this but the basics are still the same. Creating a character for a comic is all about deciding on features that make your character UNIQUE and EASILY RECOGNIZABLE. You want your audience to know “That’s Graystripe!” even if he’s drawn in a different style or by a new artist. For Graystripe, it is the spikey tufts of hair, furry cheeks, bushy “eyebrows” and dark shadows under his eyes that make him so unique.
Here are some drawings of Graystripe as he has evolved from “Lost Warrior” to an appearance in “Crookedstar’s Promise”.
