This is what most of my character designs start as - simplified cartoony figures with fleshed out general features and colors. I really enjoy making these.
This posse isn’t anything too concrete yet, just visual odds and ends for some ideas.
From left to right:
Griege Amsen, Bree, drawn in a very uninteresting pose, an optimistic daredevil, has the brain to go with his brawn.
Angiviel Amsen, Bree, Griege’s younger brother and voice of reason, will still happily pull off a risky stunt if he has to, though.
Mirwiden “Mirwi”, Bree, charismatic sass-bucket, flighty but loyal, occasionally nicknamed “Sleight of Face”, much to his chagrin.
Knirishka, Swivi-Arrowhead, bundle of lanky foreign excitement and one darn good ring-fighter.
Matiana, Kastaji, hardass spear fighter and teacher figure, the sleeve-tattoos reaching her neck indicate she must have had spent a long time as a disciple of the Wilderwalk Vigil.
