So going on some feed back from Phil I dug up a fashion book i brought a little while ago to look at how they draw there characters. Still going on the shillouette idea I came up with these.
Did this yesterday before all the art of the museums and fashion merged into my brain.
In these I very much like no 3. The idea for him is to really show in hard edges where the clothing is yet still try and retain some of no 1-2.
Just a walking pose with the cloak flowing behind him. Still working on his body shape here. I experimented here by using full on curves with the hard edges (best shown in the arms) As he is described as hard edged I thought Id see how that could be used. (still prefer no 3)
