The Plague Doctor by Oh-Mrs-O The Plague Doctor by Oh-Mrs-O
Fun with textures! 8D
As usual, a new collection of characters have been storming my mind over the past month or two. I'm starting to believe that coming up with a story before coming up with the characters may be a slightly better idea.
I'll keep that in mind next time I want to start something new.
Anyway, this is The Plague Doctor.


The Plague Doctor seems to be still in time, gathering dust. He's very gentle and passive by nature, quietly doing what he does. It's very difficult to tell what emotion he's feeling as he does everything with purpose at his own steady pace. It is a common misconception that The Plague Doctor is a healer. This is not true. He is, in fact, a sign of the innevitability of death.
Often times, he is percieved as a group of vultures, ominously present and patiently ever-watching.

Holy crap this is cool looking. And eerily similar to the Tengu from the Errant Apprentice...

Seriously? Hee.

If you didn't find it, here's a link to one of the pictures:

Without their masks it looks different, but when I first saw the thumbnail of your picture, I wondered if it was a fan art.

Ah, I see! Well, plague doctors are plague doctors, whatever way you look at them.

Oh my... ♥♥

This gives me such a propaganda-poster feeling, because of his armposture, he's almost like saluting someone (Death, of course)

the details in his mask are so lovely and the vultures looked like nasty ripped out teeth to me at first!!

His hand is actually something I'm not entirely happy about with this, and I kind of want to go back over it, but thank you none the less! <3
And I hadn't really thought of the vultures as looking like teeth before... Awesoooome.... @u@

Btw, I'm in a state of disarray, because I have no idea what I should fav in your gallery... because I want to fav everything! *facepalmdeath*

Why thank you! It actually took a stupidly long time, much longer than it should have, to come up with the right combination of those tones of brown. XP

Hurrrr...beautiful bold and smooth black lines with excellent colours and textures. How could I not love this? I've always adored the "plague mask/doctor" design. This is just so sharp and sleek. I love your concepts! <3

Thank you! I'm actually writing a script right now for a story that I want to make a graphic novel out of. The Plague Doctor is one of the characters in it.
I'm so happy! I just combined an old idea I had for a story with new characters and I ended up with something that I absolutely adore. :D And it's just coming to me! That has never happened to me with story writing before. With each scene, I just... know what happens next. ;u;

You bet your soggy little boots, I'll post stuff!
And I've never had this great a rush from a story in AGES! It's like... it's exactly what I want a story to be, dealing with characters who I love, in a world that I love... I just love it! ^______^

I know, right? I hope I can actually pluck up the motivtion to do it. I mean, finishing it will probably take years. I'd say I've written over a year's worth of script already.

Always a good palce to start. ^_^
It'll probably take quite a while to actually start, mind. I want to work out what sort of style I want to draw it in, character and location designs and all that... But it'll be fun! And OMG, I introduced the most AWSUM place I've ever come up with this morning in the script; it's like a mixture between futuristic Tokyo and Victorian London. I can't wait to get to that part! :'D

coolioso!

I find world-building really easy but couldn't you try thowing them all together and seeing what kind of world could have those characters exist together and how they would react to each other if they met? If one or two need tweaking or even expulsion for the world to work,it's no biggy you can always reuse bits for other stories.

I written anything in ages though. another thing I should really do.

Oh no, I LOVE world building. I mean, I find character and world design really easy, it's just what actually happens to the characters in the world that I have trouble with.
