Hello!
I don't post that often but I'd like your help with developing these two character designs further!

The two will be two main characters fighting, and well I really like the top one, but the bottom one isn't as interesting. His character is very closed off and cold like a rock and the whole idea is that he opens up as the story progresses.. So I guess the colours kinda show it? And that's what I went for with the beard too.. but I don't know haha do you think it fits? Or is there something you'd do to make him look more interesting but still maintain the rocky, cold look? I made his skin look a bit colder too... I'm thinking of dropping the morning star too to and have him fight with his bare hands.

These are just the base colours with a tad of shading - the top one is a foresty Viking (I know I know.. they didn't have horns... But he uses them as screwable ale horns 8D) and the bottom comes from a very rocky area - he needs the brawn because he carries big rocks to his village until the two have their conflict...

Also their eyes don't show on purpose :)

Thanks!

If you're going to animate in 3D, the large beards could get in the way... and be tricky to rig. Got any examples of the style you're going for?

My biggest inspiration for the style comes from the Saga of Biorn

The forest viking is mostly inspired by Stoic:

But I don't have the resources to give them such flowy luscious beard :')
