Besides learning for the exams at university I am working on the designs for the characters of Below the Floor, my fantasy children´s book.
Actually I haven´t found a better name for the story yet so I will stick to it for the moment. 🙂
One of the characters is a caterpillar which lives and works in the sewers of a big city. But the caterpillar does not see itself as a bug. It is a transportation company bringing passengers from one end of the city to another! And it takes care that its clients don´t get robbed or eaten by the so called “Schlammschrate” (This is the german name I will give a thieving and predatory horde of sewer creatures. I think that I will call them mud skrats or something in the english version.)
Below are the first sketches for the sewer caterpillar in two different colour schemes.
Note the little transportation cage it has bound onto its back between the caterpillar´s antlers. This cage is where its clients sit during their ride. And the antlers you can see in the upper caterpillar are the reason why the mud skrats usually do not attack these multi feet transportation service.
