    Some more sketches. These were mostly from an earlier setting idea, but what the heck, might as well post 'em.

    Ok well we thought we where going to go with a post-apocalyptic theme but we have decided to change it up because I couldn't get vikings out of my head for some reason.

    So we are going with a Norse Dark Fantasy type theme.

    Here are some new wips the Hero and Protector (with helm and without).

    another sage sketch

    Edit: I think this WIP is taking it in a much better direction; still the same general feel though. The final will have pretty dramatic lighting (or at least I will attempt to render dramatic lighting).

    Edit: updated

    Here's a WIP of the technician. I am finally working on a character that I think is shaping up to be pretty decent. I am going to go back and totally rework the last sage WIP, cause it's looking just awful. Though the pose and mood of the sage will likely remain pretty similar. (Edit: the newer version of the sage is posted above, I just got rid of the other version entirely)

    Update: I blocked in a quick background. Adam, in your discussion with me you mentioned the technician as a shipwright. I thought I would create a setting specific to her background. Would you rather have a common backdrop for all characters? Also, the arm behind the back thing is looking a bit awkward to me. Any suggestions to fix that? Thanks!

    Adam, I'm thinkin I may make the sage Indian with a much darker skin tone and the usual red dot on the forhead (though faded). Did you have some other ethnicity in mind for this character?

    Pose study for the rabble rouser. Costume and colors will most definitely change. He looks like he stepped out of a WWII bomber

    EDIT: I wanted to ask anyone who may come across this, does he look like he is flipping a coin to the viewer (my original intent)? Or does he look like he is giving some cheeseball thumbs up to the viewer? I did intend for this pose to be pretty cheesy, with the character putting out a vibe of inflated self-confidence.

    Update: I may have fixed the perspective weirdness going on with the previous version. I think he looks like he's leaning on the stool more now too, though his right leg still bugs me...something's off.

    Adam, after reading the story/background you developed for this setting, I decided I will focus on the sage, technician and rabble rouser as they are less central to the plot. That way you can develop the hero, protector and shadow according to what you had in mind. I may still bust out some quick studies of your characters just to give you something to compare/contrast to. Please feel free to do the same for the characters I am working on. In fact, I would really find it helpful if you did some quick, rough sketches to give me a new angle on things. I find a new perspective always helps to make things better. Thanks.

    Ok these are very very rough but I think you can kind of get where I am going with them. The Tech's pose is too different from everyone else's but I wanted to show her steering the longboat. Which was done with a rutter and by using ropes tied to the ends of top of the cross beam that the sail is attached to. I thought it would make for an interesting picture, but its too different from the other poses I've done. For the sage I thought she could be a priestes of one of Loki's children Jormungandr (the world serpent who's poison kills Thor in Ragnarok) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%B6rmungandr

    Sorry these are so rough but I will post up cleaner more complete sketches tonight or tomorrow.

    Your sketches are looking good! I kinda like the idea of the sage being older and of completely different ethnicity. There is a sub-deity in Hinduism that at least superficially mirrors Jormungandr, and that would allow me to keep the sage as an old Indian woman. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_worship (Ananta). I will start to incorporate some snake iconography into my sketches of the sage.

    I like the idea of using Ananta and making the sage more Indian in appearance. As far as her being old or young I was thinking it would be neat to try to make it difficult to figure out how old she is.

    Making her look like maybe she is young and has been prematurely aged like someone who smokes a lot and tans to much looks kind of like their skin is a crumpled paper bag or she is really old but has some how kept more of her muscle tone under her skin?
    Of coarse what might be kind of interesting to think about maybe she sheds her skin like a snake and changes her appearance?
