Back in 2007, I came up with a character named Yaun. He’s a mythic beast that feeds off of the “Z’s” that rise from sleeping creatures. In order to make all the animals fall asleep, Yaun bursts these little colorful spirits called the Yaunies. They scurry around and make all the creatures drowsy and then collect the “Z’s” from the sleeping animals and bring them back to Yaun.
I made an illustration back then and looking back on it now… I don’t really like how it turned. out. I kind of forgot about this character until I met up with an old college friend and we got talking about some of the creatures we came up with and that’s when Yaun came back to me. I made a little doodle in my sketch book, and a friend saw it and said, “DUDE! YOU HAVE TO PAINT THAT!”
So I did 🙂
