Sometimes when you set out to draw or create a character you will in some instances, nail the design on the first try. It's rare but it does happen...that was not the case with this Creature LOL! I must have re-drawn and re conceptualized this Design 20 times before eventually settling on this Simple Design...the original concepts envisioned this character as a large grotesque monster...but it didnt fit with the Creature's Backstory...so i figured out an interesting way of merging that original design with this new and more simplistic character...These creatures are Bad News. The Raza have another name...SoulEaters!

This guy's design Formula is simple.... Bird+Samurai+Cowboy= BadAss!
Of all the characters i have developed, This guy has my favorite backstory. Hopefully someday you'll be able to see him in action.
Every story needs a Silent Warrior, and Ferro is my take on the classic fantasy "Swordsman" archetype.

This is the design for the main character's Love Interest...
It's really difficult for me to draw women...there is a really delicate balance with drawing them...it's easy to make them too masculine. Despite all of that, this character was actually the most fun for me to Design...I guess because it was out of my comfort zone.
More to come!
This is the 3rd Re-Design of this character...and I am happy to say that it's the last. I finally have him looking the way I want...and the design feels true to the character.
Even if this Project never makes it to completion this has been a fun exercise in Character Design and Development. Who knows...maybe someday these drawings may help me get a job as a Concept Artist...a guy can dream :)

Who is this guy?!...It's possible that this distinguished looking fellow is the Villainous Mastermind from my story. He may look civilized...but believe me he is a savage and heartless man.
I'm having a blast designing these characters. I hope I see this project all the way through...the key is for me not to loose interest...gotta keep myself motivated! I would like to finish at least one project in my life time...that would be nice :/
