Heroes of the North Chibis

“Chibi” is a Japanese slang term meaning “small person” or “little child” and has become synonymous with a specific style of drawing cartoon figures where the proportions are dramatically skewed and designed to present a cute and cuddly version of a particular character or creature.

I was approached several months ago by my friend MC to do a series of Chibi drawings related to a top secret project she is working on. After some research into exactly what constitutes the style, I presented her with a sample. She was very pleased with it and decided to show it to a friend of hers who is a creator for the Canadian web series Heroes of the North  (which she also happens to be an actor for). The producer contacted me about the idea of doing a series of Chibis based on the main characters of the series. Since I was already a big fan of the series, I was naturally excited to get to work. Thus far, I have finished two and plan to do more this week. I have obviously added my own flare to the style, so we will see where this goes. It’s fun to take a break from more intricacy-oriented work and just do some downright cartooning once in a while 🙂
