This is my submission for DA's "Fantasy Earth Zero Character Fanart Contest." Basically, the goal was to design a fantasy character based on one of the game's three main character categories - Warrior, Scout, or Sorcerer.
I chose to design a warrior!
I decided on a chameleon motif, since I love folks with animal-inspired armor. He has a chameleon-head helmet, and his curly, tattered cape is supposed to sort of represent the tail. Obviously, there's a scale pattern to his shirt, as well.
Weapon-wise, he has two small swords for close-quarters combat and a large one for those extra-special emergencies. I'm sure he could probably stab you with his helmet, if he's feeling extra creative that day.
I don't know if my entry stands a chance...it's hard to say, since I don't draw in an anime style and the design is a little unconventional. Perhaps it's too themed? But you know, I thought I'd give it a try because a) I felt like drawing a cool fantasy character (and if I don't place, at least I have a character to use for the future) and b) I wouldn't mind a new tablet. ;D
Anyway, tell me what you think!
