Adam the Earth Elemental by Amy Crook

Adam the Earth Elemental by Amy Crook

Today’s sketch is a character from an original story I’m working on, an earth elemental named Adam. He’s got the ability to disappear into a pot of earth and reappear out of another one elsewhere, traveling through his element. He’s only about half a meter tall, and quite wide and stocky for that height, with no hair to speak of, or a belly button, which I had to remind myself of because I kept wanting to put one in. It’s an interesting challenge to draw a character who’s humanish without being actually human, because the urge to correct this or that is hard to resist!

I’m really working on my perfectionism with this one, because as soon as I scanned it I could see things I didn’t like, but sketches like this aren’t really finished pieces, so I left it as is.

    Why does he have nipples?

    Yes, I suppose that’s a dumb question, but since you made a point of the bellybutton thing, I wonder.

    Not dumb at all! Though the answer is somewhere between, “because he wanted to,” and, “because it made sense in the story.” The elemental chose his form, so he left out some features and kept others when he did so.
