Hey! It’s the holidays! At least in America, everyone’s taking a break for Thanksgiving weekend. Including me. So I thought I’d give the characters in my learning to draw experiment a rest as well, and just post a bit of concept material for the story.
I’m a fair bit ahead of where we’ve gotten through the posts in New Eden, and it’s time for me to introduce a new character. I’m having a lot of difficulty settling on a design. I’ve sketched out a few possibilities, and thought I’d show the most likely one here.
If you’ve been following along as I’ve been posting, you may have noticed I’m not really all that great at body proportions. This design is my attempt to get more practice in that area. He’s based on Greek statuary, which were built with a very specific set of proportion. I don’t think I’ve got it exactly right here, but hey, that’s what the practice is for. I’m not completely enthralled with this design. I still think it’s got just a little too much going on, and the toga bottom and sash going up the side of the body throw a lot of the balance off. Still, I thought I’d throw this design to the mercy of the internet as I work on improving it. So hey, if you have any feedback on it, now’s the time.
