These are some of the studies and sketches I've done before finalizing the designs.
Well, to tell the truth I really didn't need that much research for this assignment. I mean, when I saw 'Medieval Times', I was like "FINALLY! MY WORLD HAS COME!"...
I was seriously obsessed with Medieval times for about 3 years. And you know what that means. I still have the references with me. They are about a phonebook thick haha.
Expression sketches. I used some of them in the final pages.
^ This guy is an extra that I just came out for fun. King Richard the Lionheart! Brave, passionate, wild and justful but a bit dirty?
Now, costume studies done from books and photos.
Other early sketches
^ Almost finalized Guilden
^ Early Matt and Guilden
^ Early Matt and Guilden 2
^ Early Ahmud. A bit older than final one.
^ Early Guilden
^ Early evil merchant
^ Early Guilden 2. He uses a wooden stick instead of a longbow in the final design.
