Conquistadores

I’m trying to come up with a design for character. He’s an intergalactic warlord who is sentenced to imprisonment in the body of an earth child. So he needs to look ruthless but have a vulnerable side there.

I’m not sure if I even have the ruthless part down, but I thought some of these designs were fun anyway.

  1. one of those looks like darkside. I think you have something here, but knowing a bit about the story, I think you need something a little more “alien” or at least foreign (horns?)

  2. Thoughts:

    #1 Looks like a thuggish minion. That cowel thing I think detracts from any leadership qualities he might have. The dirty face makes me think he’s been staking out the castle from inside a haystack.

    #2 Definitely minion material. The kind you draw in the background, so that he looks mean, but unimportant and dispensible. The warlord might be a wizard who made an army of these guys out of rocks.

    #3 If there’s such thing as middle management minionhood, this guy is it. I think it’s partly the moustache. The cowel also adds a minion quality. He reminds me of the restaurant manager in the fast food episode of My Name is Earl.

    #4 Still not the leader, perhaps. But definitely the right-hand man. The goatee combined with the shaven head gives him that certain bouncer quality, but the stoic gaze and earring seems to increase his stature. His scar is one of honor, earned while protecting his leader.

    Thanks for the thorough critique. I agree that none of these are really quite there yet. It’s proved much more difficult than I thought.
