Fables is a series of sketches created by Chris Corridore Art. The drawing style was inspired by the works of Tim Burton, and uses themes from ancient Greek myths as a point of reference.
Each figure is created using a series of lines intertwining to create tall, slender, organic shapes. The poses are meant to mimic those seen in ancient artworks of Gods, heroes, and monsters.
I started the series by drawing 50 initial character designs. From there I slowly removed the weaker ones until I had the 10 I found most suited for the theme, which would be ancient myths. Then, I began stripping away as much detail as possible until I ended up with something like a stick figure for each. This method let each character tell a simple story with minimal detail.
