I wanted to share with you all a little fan project I’ve been working on since August 2018.
Please check out this link below to see all of the development work for this project:
Humphrey – The First Omnic
Meet Humphrey, a 25-centimetre tall music box omnic. He may not be much to look at, but he is a rather important part of the Overwatch universe. He is the first omnic ever created and the patented self-improving algorithm inside him is a primitive version of the one used in all other omnics. This started off as a bunch of Schoolism assignments to practise character design and posing, but I liked the character so much that I wanted to make a little story for him. Also I have to give a big thank you to Renaud Galand for taking the time out of his schedule to give me some feedback on this character's initial design.
After I finished the character's design, I story-boarded a short comic which I am slowly completing now. It should span about 30 pages depending on how much I keep tinkering with the story. Pages take a while to complete because they have a very detailed art style and I have to do freelance work/personal studying between them. This comic is intended to be a practise comic so that I can develop my drawing and storytelling skills for a future webcomic I have planned.
The comic is called "Lost Light". After Humphrey is stolen by a group of hooligans in King's Row during one of the worst riots in recent memory, he ends up in an abandoned warehouse. Not far from his location, he finds Mercy's halo which had also been stolen. He takes it upon himself to seek out Mercy in a city gone mad to return what belongs to her. Along the way, he must come to terms with what it means to be an omnic in a place where omnics are despised, and he must do everything within his power to be kind no matter how cruel the world gets.
The first seven pages are already completed and you can read them here if you are interested:
This comic rewards you for paying attention. Many of the panels are packed with hidden story elements and even some Easter Eggs, future pages will even feature cameos from other Overwatch heroes and side characters. The second page in particular has two World of Warcraft references hiding in plain sight. See if you can spot them.
As an added bonus, here’s a little bit of promotional art I did for this project. This was my first time doing a proper digital illustration of Mercy and, wow, she is not an easy character to draw!
I hope you can all enjoy following Humphrey on his little journey. The more support I get for this project, the faster I can produce pages. Feedback on this project is also welcome. Thank you!
