During this session, we looked at silhouettes and how they can alter what kind of character is being depicted: How they move, how they act, and their general demeanor. We were tasked with creating a selection of entirely different characters all with their own unique silhouettes. I used the basis of monsters and demons.
After, I picked out one silhouette which looked like it had the most substance and drew a full version of it. Since the silhouette had armor, I started out with the basic figure.
-then, using a light box, I traced armor over it. I also made some alterations, turning it into a 'dragon-born'/lizardman creature.
I will admit, I wad way too much fun with this.
