Finally have my personal pc hooked up here at my grandpa's house yay! @ u @ God I missed this thing~
Anyway, I've been meaning to post these since I got finished. Our final project in my Design for Illustration class was to create a character(s) or an environment drawn in 8 different themes. Themes as in dynamic, inanimate, natural, etc. so it was fun being able to draw Odin from head to toe doing different stuff.

I think I had more fun with this project than most of her other ones as she gave us a lot more freedom to just run with the ideas we had. I'm actually really glad we ended up doing this project as it gave me a lot of time to sit down and really develop out Odin's history, personality, etc. He's kind of an asshole but not all the time. XDDD More often than not he just doesn't talk. I also added in more elements of his nationality (He's a Shawnee Native American) in his features and of course the feathered piece in his hair. Colorwise it was actually a bitch to pick colors. I had SO many good combos but ended up settling on earthy greens and browns, which I tried to carry into both his human form and his werewolf form.

More than anything out of all the sketches, I adore the one of he and Ulysses sleeping on the couch. The two of them together just slay me, I can't even tell you. X3
That's all for now, the next thing in order is a ref sheet for Odin (which is almost done) and the commissions I'm working on!

But first.... TO THE FRIDGE.

    Your other Concept drawing said he was 6'5'' instead of being 7'5''

      That's part of character development. I changed his height along with original facial structure (which isn't posted here) and his hair slightly.
