Been playing a Black Mesa character expansion mod and reading on cut content so thought I’d doodle my hypothetical “extra NPCs.” First up: construction dude. I didn’t want to 1:1 just redraw the model found in the game, but took some inspiration. I emphasized his safety harness, with various carabiners and a tool belt attached. Of course he still has a helmet (safety first!) I kept the high-vis jumpsuit but tried to spice it up with some elbow/knee fabric pads. For head variations, I doodled some people I know IRL. Yes that one guy looks like he swallowed a brick. For the IDs the faces would match. For variations, I’d have some variation in jumpsuit being zipped up and wear/dirt. Heads can have helmets, warm hats, no hats, “dorky glasses,” and welding glasses. They can also have different tool belts or no tool belts. I know it looks like crap, I was gonna ink, scan, and color. But I’m hung over from Acetaminophen and no sleep. I plan to doodle more characters later. What do you think?
Plans for future drawings: - on-base fire fighter - factory worker - female NPC designs If I can think of any other ideas or if you have any to suggest I’ll draw those too. I love designing characters.
