Character : Gladiator 
Personality : Fierce/Blood thirsty
weapon : Sword/Knifes 
Clothing : Armor (Mild Amount)


Gesture Drawing: I used a variety of Images for poses. The First two poses from the left are my Own from imagination(they are not accurate in proportions) I used reference to draw the other images to have correct proportions from reference(not tracing). 



Silhouettes: I filled in the Gestures with black for the silhouettes, From there I used a brush to fill in ideas for armor and Weapons, Thinking of different armor ideas. 




Idea Refining: Thinking more in depth of the shapes which make the character.



Value of Light: choosing the best colour value for character. 



Light: Imaging where the light would hit off on the character.



Coloring/Painting : Quick final Paint of character with colours.
