Combat reflexes can be a surprisingly helpful skill - especially when having to end movement on or near a mold or spawn zone. Combined with Enhanced Senses, Carl becomes an excellent spawn-defender.There apparently are quite a few 'pig-man' characters roaming around in video games, tv shows, and comics so I'm not sure there was a specific homage in mind when creating Carl. Certainly an interesting character concept - if not a bit unsettling if pork is on the menu. I do, however, know that pigs on the farm don't hesitate to eat one other if one happens to die so I doubt ol' Carl would limit his menu just due to his Porcine 'enhancements'.
I said I wasn't planning on switching over to painting the Invader characters in oils, but the temptation to try them out on a character with a lot of exposed skin won out. Getting some more practice with the oils before tackling another abomination also played into the decision to go with oils on this one.
|Carl at the pre-glaze stage already looks pretty interesting.|
