This made me think about how important the shadows around this character will be. Particularly at the beginning - I think it should be really shady, like he is hiding in the shadows. I like how angular and boney he is, collar bones showing and Fagin fingers - my only criticism is that I think his posture needs to be less rigid, more lazy. Really cool drawings though.
hey maarty! thank you so much for your help! your such a legend! these designs are really nice. and the whole point of concepts are to get inspired by one another, my designs are totally based on kristians and pauls. i really like the side profile of the head shots. the only thing i'd say about these designs is that i want his costume to some how let on that he use to be a magician. but subtly, so that early on we don'tget it, but when he starts performing he looks the part. does that make sense? cheers buddy
