I've tried to include a number of things that I think about when creating a character for an existing universe. These are just things that I think about, and the rules that I try to follow to create a convincing character. The same method could be applied to all of conceptual design actually. The story and purpose should be conveyed at every angle.

In this video I walk you through a complete method for character design. This is one of millions of ways you could do it, but I had to choose something! Heh.

In this scene Mao is confronted by the Red Cobras, and he gets beat up. I've added this as an event page in the World of Twilight Monk art book.

Recorded one of my design paints for a change. Tried a different approach here, with lineart and all. Hope you like it! ^^ Music: MH4U: A Lonely Tune Xenoblade Chronicles: Imperial Capital Agniratha

Get the book: Facebook: Twitter: Artstation: This was a piece that I did for the Art of Twilight Monk. It's meant to be an over the top action shot featuring the Mighty Small Fry Rin Torra. In the video I talk a bit about the characters background, and why he is designed the way that he is. This is more of a behind the scenes look at how I put together the world of Twilight Monk. Check out the art book on my gumroad channel.
