daggett blackwood


So I got this card for his birthday. It was a tough choice between this and a bulldog in blue saying “What’s another birthday…to a tough guy like you?” but I think his love for schnauzers outweighs his propensity for blue and mild depression about turning twenty-three.

However, between the bandanna and the angle of the ears I was also reminded of Coelasquid’s character, Daggett, who happens to also be gray. Hm. Maybe I should’ve found a color picture.

Tombow stiff tip disposable brush pen, you can get a really chunky line if you need to, but it’s better than most brush pens for doing those really fine hairy lines without having to hold your breath and try to draw with the single molecule at the end of the pen. Most brush pens seem to give you a fat line with average pressure and you have to be extra delicate to get a thin one, this one defaults to a fairly thin line and you need to go out of your way to do a chunky one. Good for finnicky little bits and cross hatching.

Just went at this one without pencil so whatever went on the page was where I had to keep going.

I’m totally gonna Mad Max the hell out of Daggett’s car, it was supposed to be like, the front half of a ‘57 T-bird welded to the back half of a ‘59 Cadillac Eldorado before but it always just looked like a normal car. It didn’t even occur to me until now I could just draw like, a stack of cars lego’d together.

He’s a mechanic and the whole culture in Allemune revoles around salvaging and reusing as much as possible, so a lot of the job there involves upcycling scrap into shiny new things with engines that run on alternative fuel sources, it’d make sense for him to drive some kinda tricked out derby fortress with a big enough cab for a seven foot dude to sleep in without waking up with too much of a crick in his neck.

He can regenerate from a skeleton, but only soft tissue. The skeleton can mend itself, but it won’t re-grow parts from nothing. So he’ll stay a pile of bones until a couple get close enough to start stitching themselves together and crawling around to find the others. Pieces can’t move until they’re connected to the head with some semblance of a brain, though.
