I made this character design during a world building project together with Kimnius (Kim Bolenius). I experimented with some different brushes for this piece.
In our project he’s a member of a tribe. The weather condition in the environment he lives in is quite hot and dry. For this reason I gave him a half-opened robe made of cloth, which fits loosely and won’t be too dense so he can cool-off. Further, there are monsters in the environment. Since his armor isn’t that protective, he has to rely on his fighting techniques. His weapon is long by purpose, so he can fight on distance and push off enemies in time.
