Princess

As I said in a previous post about how every King needs a Champion; well the same could be said about every kingdom needing a Princess. You may notice that she is a lot taller in the final image than from the rough line drawing. I decided to make this change because I wanted her to feel and look more like a young woman instead of a child. I think it also makes her seem more regal and elegant. I had a lot of fun creating this piece. I especially enjoyed designing and painting her long, wavy hair. I wanted the hair to be more fun and whimsical.
I hope you all enjoy this piece.

The King's Champion

In keeping with my prior post; here is another character from that same time period. Every king needs a champion. I wanted to borrow from the colours I used in the king's coat for the champion's tunic. I thought that this would help show that he is of the same kingdom. I had a lot of fun designing and painting this character. I hope you all enjoy it too.

King

This piece was inspired based on my enjoyment of period themed television shows such as The Tudors, Rome, Camelot and Game of Thrones. The design work and attention to detail that is given to the costumes, props and sets etc. in those shows really helps draw you in, making you start to believe the world you're watching is real.
I had a blast designing and painting this character so much that I look forward to designing more characters that would fit into this world. I hope you all enjoy it.

Briefcase and Fedora

In keeping with my last couple posts; here is another 1960's businessman, this time sporting a fedora and briefcase. I loved the look back then of the fedora with a suit and coat. It looked very sharp and classy. I also added some neatly, groomed facial hair to help give him more maturity and presence. Hope you all enjoy it.

Smoke Break

In keeping with my last post, here is another 1960's businessman, this time not having a drink but a cigarette. For this character, I wanted to use a cool palette of colours for his suit. Hope you all enjoy it.

Tweed Jacket

As I mentioned in my previous post, the 1960's fashion style is one of my favourites. The variety in suit styles and patterns were awesome. Here's a character sporting a tan coloured tweed jacket. The "1960's businessman" would not be complete without including an alcoholic beverage. As you may notice in the final image, I made him taller than from the original sketch. I felt this would help better represent his high/important social status. Hope you all enjoy it.
