Here is again, tried to define him some more and the species that he fitted best it, decided to opt for the him being a panda like character.
Still a ways to go in terms of digital practice but happy with the turn out thus far. Working with muscle this time with some perspective, not something I've worked with a great deal with defining and working with the muscle features of a characters so I'm sure there are areas that look a little odd shall we say? Arm was properly the hardest area since I wasn't sure myself which was I wanted to face or to get it to match a great deal with the rest of the structure. Eventually get the blasted thing right in time, but not here, at least in my eyes.
Trying to simply things in the colouring this time right and something to explore and present later on. Simplifying the strokes and softer shading in selected so that things don't feel so heavy, mainly since I noticed I'd make more mistakes with just slapping the brush around without really thinking of what colour should be and fix things later on or spent more time re-correcting areas due to that issue.
I've given him a prototype name: Cider. Not permeant by any means so far and might be changed depending on peoples response. So let me know guys and girls if the current name should stay or be changed.
Interested to know what you all think.
