Here is a character I designed for my illustration and character design class. I was very heavily inspired by the manga Berserk and the video game series Dark Souls. The poses that the main character Guts uses from Berserk are very fun to draw and I wanted to incorporate that into my own character. The movements of the character Artorias from Dark Souls also inspired his design with sharp angles and a rough, worn down look. Overall, he was so much fun to create!
