Going way back to some pics that were never shared at the time. So these are the first sketches of Jacob and Waylons who debuted in the Western Arch. Waylons mostly remained the same to the final design, with the only exception being details to the coat. While I did do the drawing, it was mostly my co-writer who developed Waylons, he had a very specific idea of how he would look and even came up with his whole backstory.
Jacob comes with a backstory of his own. My initial idea with Jacob was to have him look like a polite little boy, as he was meant to be Waylon’s little helper. His initial design can be seen on the right of his sketches. However I totally crazy design I came up with was Jacob wearing a coat and boots that were far too big for him. The idea behind this design is that Jacob admires Waylons and seeks to become like him. As such he wears these overly large boots and coat in hopes to grow into them one day. So if you ever wondered as to why his clothes were too big, that’s why.
