Character Portrait No. 1

I’ve been commissioned to illustrate a graphic novel. The project should keep me busy until the end of this year. Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be posting some early designs of the principal characters of the version of the story that I’m not illustrating. The project’s writer scripted the first chapter. I did character designs and then had to do some traveling. While I was gone the writer was inspired to script a completely different story for his own amusement.

Both he and I decided that the new story would be a lot more fun to work on than the original concept. So all these character designs are now orphans.
