Note: The mascots presented here are (from left to right) Toro (Texans - NFL), Freddy Falcon (Falcons - NFL) and Aubie the tiger (Auburn - NCAA). They are not originally designed by me; only the human characters are.
"Toro was created by Street Characters Inc. and we wouldn't want any confusion in the marketplace regarding where he originally came from."
I got inspired to do this piece after watching Ninja Assassin. If there's something I've learned from working on this drawing is this: I love Google Sketch Up! It saved me a lot of time with the architecture and perspective (and, technically, it's not cheating since I had to build the whole thing myself - I see it as inking my own 3D model.) I was surprised at how user friendly the program is, too. It can be downloaded for free here.
