4 down, 17 more to go. To break monotony, i changed slightly the model of the concept art. May experiment further in the days to come. See what people prefer.
There’s always changes i do t he character sto make them fit. Mostly it’s a change of armor. if they’re part of an army, they get standard armor, which they can then modify. In this case he get that clawed gauntlet. the original reference had bright orange and red on it but it wouldn’t be very fallen-ish. I’ve just typed an explaination of what the “Quirk” requirement for these concept arts is. Maybe it’ll help others to plan their character.

The goal of those lower left concept scenes is to make the character stand out in unusual ways. Flaws make character specials, stand out from other. in this case it’s not necessarily a flaw as few want to show the bad side of the character, instead it is something that would be humorous. Now people will see your character and think “oh, shirtless man!” Where they could think “Ninja number 3” without it.

Next concept art is coming monday. The list is now… Gasp, a sharen is incoming.

    Honestly I think character quirks make the character more believable, having a flaw like being terrified of large breasts in a matriarchal society or getting annoyed at being mistaken for a slave when your race is generally enslaved to begin with or being completely incapable of holding your liquor make the character more interesting ^^

      True, pretty much every (good) character has some sort of flaw…pride getting in the way of admitting their wrong, bullheadedness, social anxiety, greed, tradition-bound… But for the concept arts, usually the funnier quirks are the best to chose for illustration.

    I hope he doesn’t pick his nose with the -wrong- hand.

    These are looking amazing! And seeing Kev’ren on the list is so exciting, I can’t wait!

      I can’t wait to see them all as well. Though seeing Tabel done is seriously awesome. I have had the idea for this character for a very long time and it is very cool to see him completed.

    Hmm something about this fellow might rub Min’issya the wrong way… maybe because he’s a Sargh!
