So, I started creating this character design at 1AM Saturday morning when I had this funny idea "what if I made a character that like, had a big bulletproof life jacket with a bunch of shit on it. Wouldn't that be cool?"

All the work I put in to this project that night sucked (frames 1-3)

Then, I started working on other stuff and I knocked out the majority of the design and actually fixed the drunk looking sketches I made when I was half asleep earlier. (frames 4-6).

Then, the next day I barely worked on it at all.(frame 7)

And finally, tonight I decided I wanted to finish a color pass of this character and "fix the design" and I totally changed the design at the last minute in to some kind of ribbon wearing martial artist type thing. (frame 8-9)

I have the feeling I should have stopped somewhere in the middle of this process. It was kind of strange how every time I sat down to work on this illustration the whole design would fly off the map and land somewhere completely different.


Sorry if this is a step down from my previous work, I haven't felt like myself this last week. I gotta start feeling better sometime. When I do I'll start making cool art and speaking properly again. In the meantime, this aughta do something for you guys. Thanks for looking, have a great day.

I hope everything's well with you, and that you'll start feeling better if whatever's been bothering you persists! This is by no means a step-down, great concept and design.

Holy Moly you got a complicated workflow thats a hell of a thing to admire tbh
Love how with each revision design gets more complicated even with smaller shapes added to it
Hope you'll be feeling better in no time (but do take as much time you need)
