Checkers Character Design

In between freelance assignments I'm usually working on one or two personal projects. Most of those never get finished, they more like exercises and when something more serious comes along I abandon them. Right now I'm working on a little story exercise, who knows I might even finish it...

These are some designs of one of the two characters, a NYC-based, 30-something head-hunter named Checkers.

Digital sketches with Photoshop.

Divine Wind

Sketch based on a picture of a WW2 Kamikaze pilot. I did some more but this is the only one I think turned out nice.

I'm prety amazed by some of the videos of Kamikaze you can find. Weird to see these guys preparing for certain death. As they say in Ghostdog: The Way of the Samurai: "Ancient Japan was a pretty strange place."

Marker and ink on paper, and some digital textures.
