I finished the character that I was thumbnailing two posts ago. Design is a tricky thing, every element of a good character directly links to the characters story. I was designing a character who lives in a desert wasteland and spends his days in the sun. So while pale white skin is appropriate for a vampire like nosferatu who cannot go into the sun, my character needed a tan leathery tales from the cryp type feel. I might give this another go since our kind professor is rewarding those of us who completed the assignment with an oppurtunity to improve and resubmit.
