“The possibility of physical and mental collapse is now very real. No sympathy for the Devil, keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride.” ~ Raoul Duke
In this final Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas character design of Raoul Duke, I wanted to spend a minute recapping the journey. Most of the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas work I have posted on the site have been part of a class assignment for a character design course I have been taking. I was instructed to choose a story and to create my own designs of the various characters.
This may be my last character design for my class, but it doesn’t mean this is the last one I will draw. I do plan to rework a few thing here and there including the Dr. Gonzo character. I will probably also make a movie poster.
From the Hitchhiker to Dr. Gonzo and from the Vegas Lizard People to Raoul Duke, all the different character have been a lot of fun to draw. There are a few other characters that I’d like to tackle in the future including the cops and Lucy, but if anyone wants me to do a particular character in Fear and Loathing I am open to suggestions.
I may also show some more tweaked versions of these characters along with some other conceptual sketches from time to time, but for now this is the last one except for the completed reworked version of that “ rotten attorney” Dr. Gonzo.
You may be seeing a little less Fear and Loathing soon as I will begin to move on to some other things, but fret not as one thing you can count on is that more sketches are on the way.
