Woodland Traveler

I started with the idea of an explorer/adventurer character. I like the concept of nomadic heroes traveling from place to place in a fantasy world. It also seems like a common theme in fantasy stories, so I figured it was a good place to start.

Here are my silhouette thumbnails. I spent quite a lot of time on this stage because I realized that the more thumbnails I made, the more interesting they became. I tried to make them as varied as possible. These are the best 12. This process was really interesting, because I've never tried anything like this before. 

For the refinement stage, I went with the last four thumbnails. I originally picked 8 based on the feedback I got from friends and the ones that looked the most interesting to me. I started work on all eight, but quickly knew whether or not I actually liked where the character was going. These are the final four.

I think I may have gone a little too detailed in the refinement stage, because I find myself wanting to change a lot of the elements already.
