in this project I want to try and make a character so i used an idea and envisioned what type of character I wanted to make so I pick a villain from the story that im currently writing about Mace Spencer the main antagonist in Path to Revenge. I knew what I wanted him to look like which was a young war veteran that is wearing an ancient armor. that lets him become the elements to whatever he touches. but to start off I need to know what type of pose he would make so I chose the one on the bottom left and then I had to decide on what type of character build he would represented chose the third one because it felt more close to what I intended. and finally after that I started adding in the detail to the design and ended up with that. I know that I was having problems with the shading a defining of his arms but making this image help me understand more about maces character I haven't drawn his sword in there yet because I plan to improve on this image and make it even better.
