DEV>Monkey Island Character Design (II)


Recommended Posts

Today, the first Monkey Island game in thirteen years is OUT. What an excuse to add more faces to my Monkey Island Character Design series, which is something I absolutely love to do. The low resolution of the actual characters gives an illustrator a lot of room for artistic translation and you can do whatever you want with them, especially if you don't give a fuck about the MI3 redesigns. Yes, I'm a MI1/MI2 purist, so no, no plans to draw the overrated Murray.

First, the characters I drew in 2020. You may have already seen them, but I've made some little adjustments here and there:

Guybrush: My only inspiration is that masterfully arranged bunch of pixels. His face (sometimes deadpan, sometimes quite expressive for such a low-res character) tells me everything I need.

LeChuck: As with Guybrush, the game's character design is so good that I don't need more than those few pixels to "see" LeChuck, although I wanted to retain the zombie pirate's maniacal expression in the excellent illustration by Steve Purcell for the MI2 box cover.

Elaine: Also not based on anyone, but I drew her with a tiny mole near her nose as a tribute to Geena Davis in the only post-1990 pirate film that actually deserved to succeed.

Stan: Loosely based on Bruce Campbell. Don't really know why, but I see my Stan and it feels... right.

Otis and Meathook: Turturro and Goodman were the perfect jumping point to give these two a great visual personality.

Carla: This one's not a loose resemblance. My Sword Master is basically Rihanna.

Largo LaGrande: Just some classic Hanna-Barbera design (especially Ed Benedict's) for Scabb Island's main bully.

And now, the new designs:

Wally: I couldn't draw a version of the saddest cartographer in the Caribbean that didn't look like a child until Ron Howard and his old-teenager face came to my mind. My Wally is not really based on Howard, but he helped me to get the "old child" look right.

Herman Toothrot: Also difficult. I didn't want Herman to look like a random castaway, but I wasn't able to draw one single sketch of him that didn't look plain and generic... until I thought of John Lithgow. I'm so happy with my version of Herman.

Voodoo Lady: This one came out quite easily. I couldn't resist giving her Morgan Freeman freckles.

Hope you like them.

  • Idiocracy would not relate Repression to Communism due to their years of training by the misdirecting repressors.

  • In my opinion, I am HALF right, and you are HALF wrong. Let's part ways. Each of us is taking our HALF LIFE in peace.
