Ok, so after my mood boards, I began to look at old RAF officers and their attire.

Due to the simplistic style, this looks too Generic military.

I decided that the characters love of Aviation was his main motive for his occupation, rather than his militaristic patriotism. I was also trying out this idea of him suing his cane to launch seed at enemies for the pigeons to attack. I’ll see where that goes

Whilst I liked the attire of the flight jacket and googles etc, the style seemed too fun and childish.
So iwent about dropping the typically cartoony black outlines, working instead with shapes + textures.

This is already looking a bit more Photorealistic (at least in textures) but retains charm and style.

Here I’m just comparing having the googles on and off.  I’ve also added a nose in and lightened the tash, as with more realistic skin – omitting facial features looks rather freaky.

Here I’ve added eyebrows and coloured eyes – irises to be exact.  They are a bit overbearing though. and the skin is VERY orange.

Lightening the skin makes him more human, the eyebrows are too dark though, they almost have a black outline. Also + RAF rank badge on his shoulder.

Here is the up to date version.  whites to the eyes make him more human. The cane is now added in too.

He looks a little too cute though.  I think I need to harden him up if he’s going to take on a bunch of Zombies.
