A series of characters created for the ArtStation Feudal Japan challenge a while ago. I started pretty late, so I didn't get to render them all out in the style I am used to rendering in, but that did leave it inadvertently with more of a still-desirable cartoon-y effect. Overall, it was a pretty crazy learning experience, creating such a large cast of characters in so short a time (in the middle of a very busy semester as well). I learned a lot about color and thematic cohesion during this process. Definitely looking forward to practicing those character design skills in the next challenge!
