What’s up guys, so, I have just finished creating my very first character design “turnaround”. I was inspired to create my own original ninja styled character from watching Naruto. I loved Naruto’s take on the concept of ninja’s, and that led me to start googling different designs, as well as authentic ninja gear, clothes, etc.
I imported some images that inspired me into Photoshop for a reference library to give me an idea on how to create a believable character design. Granted, I’ve never done this before, so I probably made a few mistakes, but hey, I had a lot of fun, and in the end the result I got was, in my opinion, pretty cool.
My ninja character is far from finished, and there are many things that I wish to change, add on, and overall, to give the designs a fully rendered appearance. One thing that I’d love to do with this new character is to try and create a full fledged illustration of him and see how well he looks. Maybe I’ll even come up with a backstory, which will lead to other designs in the future for more characters. 🙂
I hope that you guys like how this ninja character turned out, and please let me know what you think in the comments section, I’d love to hear what you like, or even dislike about the character, and possible ways I could improve as a character artist.
And, as always, thank you guys so much for checking out my work, I really appreciate it, and I hope all of you have a great day!!
