Fantasy world building and character concepts

Dwarven home Concept

The following work follows the idea of designing an environment and a character that lives within that space. This character used to live in a large Dwarf colony at the base of a huge mountain. He worked as an engineer and a professor. Once his wife passes on of a sickness, our character decides to leave the life of teaching and nobility and moves out to a more open plane of nature. He becomes a hermit and spends his time engineering small everyday machines.

starting the character

I wanted my character to have a bit of meat on him, but keep him strong and noble looking with the background he has been given. Going into the outfit sketches I work between fine silks and robes to rugged leather work suits. Out of the five quick designs I do, I move on with three, picking favor of the more, “I’m going to spend my day building things” suits.

Finalizing the Design

After picking out the middle design shown, a tonal study is started where I pick out loose values. I ended up going with the last in row two for the final paint of the character.
