This is Graeme Frontbum

Graeme Frontbum fist pump

Graeme is fat.

He is so fat, he has a bum at the front.

In fact, his back and front look the same!

But he doesn't care.

During the day, Graeme runs his pet store called "Pet World". This is how he earns his living.

Some days it seems as if the animals run the store.

You can follow Graeme's adventures in my comic strip: Graeme Frontbum's Pet World.

Graeme Frontbum Character Design

Character sketches

Here are a few sketches I did to work out how Graeme looks in certain situations and with different expressions:

Pattern fills

I created a series of flat patterned fills that I used to color various parts of Graeme and other objects. I then make them look more 3D by brushing shadows and highlights over the top in Photoshop.

Graeme Frontbum with no legs

Just for fun, I experimented with Graeme having no legs. He just floated above the floor.

It was a failed experiment. Although, he does make a good stress-ball shape without legs! (future toy idea)

Graeme Frontbum in the nude

I know you're curious what Graeme looks like in the nude. Well, you don't have to wonder any longer!

Like I already said, he has an identical bum at the front and back:
