The first of a series of personal characters.

Just as an exercise, here were some my goals with this character design:
◘To create a costume that appeared both functional and somewhat memorable. It's really easy to over-design fantasy costumes, to the point where they're no longer practical. I aim for something an actor could wear in a realistic setting.
◘Use soft lighting. Slightly cool primary in the foreground, with a warm secondary kick light.
◘Stay loose with the brushwork wherever possible.
