I should draw my OCs more often.

Sorta done I guess? The lineart is pretty squiggly lol. This is btw my oldest oc. Created her when I was like, ten or something. And yes she’s POC and has a Mohawk. Because all cool dudes have a Mohawk.
Drawing characters while watching pewdiepie on YouTube. The was ended up too big. But I still like the whole design in general. This is my OC Hugin, he is a troll. Sort of.
The thing with a "main character", is that the reader see the story/world from that characters point of view - we can often read the characters thoughts and feelings more than other characters in the story. You can also use the perspective to increase this “effect”.
You can use the eye-level to display the world seen from the main character. Look at the two pictures above, the characters have the same size on both pictures - the only difference I’ve made is to switch eye-level. And by just doing this, we switch between the adult and the kids point of view - even though they both look at the same thing.
So, when you are doing a perspective, FIRST decide the eye-level and after that start placing out all those annoying guidelines.
Here’s some more Deinonychus doodles. These ones are more cartoony, dinosaurs probably didn’t have lips or “eyebrows” like in the picture. However, if you use the real skeletal anatomy as a base, you can tweak some areas in order to easier make different expressions.
Character design on one of the main characters for my final project in school. His name is Nicolas McLaren and work as a professor and scientist. I won’t tell you exactly what he does since it would spoil a bit of the story.
I am very pleased with the design, I managed to give him a african look and still keep it into my own mangastyle - in many mangacomics they just give the character a dark skin to show that they are not caucasian/asian. But if you really want to give the character a more exotic touch it’s good to study the facial differences between african, asian, caucasian and other kinds of faces. It will not only give you a wider variation of characters, but also improve your art.
