This was a really fun assignment. We were asked to emulate another artist and design a character using their style. This guy is an assassin in the early 1900's. As you can see his normal cover is a saloon pianist. The artist that I attempted to emulate is Maël Gourmelen. I found his stuff on the character design blog and I loved it. His use of the line of action is second to none. He really helped me with clothing wrinkles as well. I also admire is daring use of watercolors in his designs. He leaves alot of his designs in the rough pencil stage to paint up and it gives the character some fun texture. So yeah, like it or not here it is :) Enjoy.
