Sometimes at work, I get inspired to just throw in an original idea of my own after trucking through the list of assets assigned. I thought a rocking gnome would be funny for the project i was working on last week. So much so, that I researched some ZZ-Top images and some gnome images and with that as inspiration, sketched this guy out in Photoshop.
I thought I would give him the furry ZZ-Top guitar, but decided to go with the slick red guitar instead. I threw in some gator skin boots last of all. I think i adjusted some of the proportions in the final Flash render which exaggerates certain features, but I like the sketchy quality captured with photoshop best.
