My design is inspired mainly from the real person (DJ. Goi). Aranya is like a spare part for Zombat so I design her to be more decayed than Zombat. She is quite shy (in my opinion). She hides herself from Zombat almost til the end.
Zombat has to cover his zombie body from people. I design him to be a little bit more fashionable (left pic). Also, I show when he is decaying (center pic). The right pic is him before he is dead.
I tried drawing in many styles to find the middle between cartoon and reality. However, it looks very cartoony.
I tired to explore various ideas. I didn’t read the book yet but I read many posts in this blog. I can capture something from reading them.
