Fantastic, you're getting more expressive!
As much as I enjoy the new character designs I still wonder where they put their weapons when not in use.
Thanks! I imagine it's like any cartoon where they randomly pull anything they want from behind their back LOL (just kidding). I did have a way earlier concept with a sheath on the side of them. However, since this character dual-wields, I'm not sure if it's two sheaths on the waist, or back strap mounts. :P
The pose also shows a bit of a wreckless charge (character early in the story). He's full of flaws such as a bit of arrogance, jokes too much (and drinks). His dad was well known but got killed in the military when Arlo was young (this character) and is trying to grab some of that legacy. My other character Archer is the closest thing to a father Arlo has, but is also his commanding officer. I imagine Arlo being "good" at fighting, but not great, and through the story learns a lot about himself, his abilities, and what matters in life. His fighting style should start turning into almost a ballet...matrix type stuff as he progresses, learning from Titus and another character who I haven't introduced yet (antagonist/protagonist).
Arlo got his dad's genes (athletic and natural fighter)
Enzo (his younger brother) is a bit of a runt, but a brain
Holly (his mom) has a rocky relationship with Arlo since he joined the military. Enzo is a bit of a momma's boy.
