Finally back from Fall Break and here on campus... @ n @
Now begins the final two weeks of the semester, oh god. Cram Time.

Its Odin again, but just some quick facial studies/facial redesigns. It was bought to my attention that there were problems with Odin's initial character design, which was totally unintentional ugh, so with several helpful suggestions and reference of the facial structures I had in mind to mesh together, here is his newly revised face. Its not nearly as harsh and square as the other design, but still looks as fierce and angry as I wanted. He's got more of a smoothed jawline and brow ridge and a more "hawk"ish nose, so he's not nearly as hardcore frowny with three million creases in his face. I did leave the Crow's Feet at the corners of his eyes because he looks good with them as well as the wrinkles near his nostrils and the pronounced cheekbones.

The bottom profile view as well as the frontal view are the most accurate sketches of what I'm trying to get across for his facial build, the top most profile was the first and was sorta getting there, but his face wasn't quite there yet. It was mostly in the slope of his nose and how his eyebrows tilted really sharply down. He looks a lot more Native American now but not completely full-blooded, which was what I aimed for in the first place. Probably will tweak him a bit more in the next few days (like skin and hair color) and quite possibly have an actual completed image of him to post, besides sketches. FFFF, god so much to do and not enough time to do it in. Ftw school, you're messing up the fabric of space and time. :C

Anyway, enjoy, there's a sketchbook for my Methods class that's calling me. ; n ; *sob*
