Anywho..here is some of the concept work leading up to him!
|Started with noses and eyes..I always seem to start with the nose..|
|Used a lot of homeless guys as facial references. Some preliminary sketches. Originally wanted to go for a techy old guy, but that wasn't coming along at all.|
|Liked how his cheekbones lead straight to his nose. I like jagged, mostly symmetrical things...Decided to go for a middle aged tough guy instead.|
|Tried a couple of body builds. I was pretty sure I wanted a bulky guy, but wasn't sure how his shoulders should play out. He looked too perky and tarzan-y in the first sketch, but more worn out in the second, so I went with that.|
|Front and side views. His nose is weird to turn...kind of makes me want to model him in 3D.|
|Put it all together, and gave him a backpack. I did actually do some fancier drawings of the backpack but got too lazy to clean it up.|
