The final character to join the stage in my concept has arrived.
The last addition is a large muscular brute (tho he will most likely receive a fairly gentle character)


Figure 5

Offcourse A brute is just a large man without something heavy to hit with, 2 heavy metal balls on a chain, seemed to do the trick:

Figure 5 Chains

and since I’m known to have a sweet spot for group portraits, I just had to trow it all into a group set:

Group concept

By now it should have become pretty obvious there’s still work left (mostelly since 2 are missing faces),
all I can say is that I’m going to do some touching up on the overall details and faces will be added to go along with the character.
The eyes / other facial treats on the other 2 characters are placeholders anyhow.

I finished the first character (finished is a big word, I completed the concept, the character is far from finished)

figure 1 final

The second character concept is also done:

Figure 2 final

and same for the third one:

Figure 3 final

So far I have 3 female characters, all I’m missing is their male counterpart to complete the bunch.
I hope to finish that one soon.

The last few days, I’ve started on some concept scetching.
I got some nice pointers from the Idrawgirls blog. (witch I would recommend to all who start out at drawing on the pc/mac)

I started by doing the rough “thumbnail” design for 3 female characters.

concept scetching

As you can see, the first scetches aren’t much for detail, and they shouldn’t be.
These are the thumbnails that survived the elimination process, and going more into detail at this stage, just means a loss of time.

After this I started working on the first character, going in for more details:

Aside from the detail that was added, I also added a layer with the shadows and light spots, just to establish the light source and to use as a referene later.

After this stage the path for colour was open, so i added the basic colours to the concept (still not sure about the hair color)

thats it for this update,
remember you can see these drawings in full size, by clicking them and going to all sizes on Flickr.
