Viking Design

Hi everyone; Hi Denis; first i just wanna say i am a huge fan of your work, love the appeal and the fun story  we can find in  your illustrations. I decide to take this class to improve as much as i can my character design and the story we can find behind each personnage, shapes, face.

I am also a big fan of nicolas ilic works: http://nikolas-ilic.blogspot.fr/  that why  i decided to design a viking; So i started with the first step, exploring characters; i'am not really satisfied with these so i go on:

I aint decide if i go for 2 or 3. I like the "lord" style of nunber two; and the "rough" style of 3. Could stop me to put some color too.

I go for the Tough one; i look for some posing and choose he goes for a fight.

so i continue on S-curves and C-curves:

S and C curves

I go forward with the anatomy checking.

look like right arm was too long, and left too short. I cut left legs too; and made a change on the belt who doesnt seem to really share the hips direction... Now the character looks like that.

So I go for the next 4 step:
