I started off brainstorming how I would like the character to be like, and gather pictures for reference in the future.
In my head I created an introduction from Guardian Schnauzi.
"Hi everyone, I am Schnauzi. I was born in the planet named Jupiter. Well, as a Guardian, you must be wondering what my super power is! My super power is music healing power. My mission is to make the mankind happy and loved ♥"
That's the general idea of what Schnauzi is like.
2. Silhouette Thumbnails
Silhouette gives you the idea of the general 'feel' for the character. I tried a few, and decided to go with the 2nd silhouette.
Here's how it looks like sketching it out with the background thumbnails on.
Next is to give the character its 'colour'. I've tried a few and asked opinions from my peers and the end result is as shown. Nothing too fancy. I have yet to clean up the messy lines I've drawn. Maybe you can try designing one of your own character as well? ^ ^
I would like to make more guardian characters, I have a Miko character in mind and perhaps a 'chef'-like guardian too! I am planning to make it into an animation and also to come up with a proper soundtrack album for it! For those who are interested in collaborating (illustrator, animator, voice actor?etc.), feel free to message me on any of my social media. :) *I don't bite, say hi! ^ ^*
I know this will take on for a while, but for those who are interested:
follow me on Facebook as well as the page for Guardian Schnauzi! I will post the progress from time to time :)
