More art from the design of The Woods for Club Stripes!
These were the first pictures of the main characters, Leel and Airi.
I go through a process of thinking about a character for a long time before they become a visual. So the art version of them tends to happen in one or two shots and then get refined over time.
Leel, the male, works as one of the guides for the Vindia herds. He helps them get to places safe and sound and avoid the predators.
Airi has been more the type to wear many hats within the herd. Sometimes a guide, sometimes a coordinator, sometimes a scout. Currently is with Leel’s child and is going with him on the last round of travels to the next magical shrine that will protect them for the coming season.
As the story goes along I’ll share the design art of the characters and try to talk about them a little bit!
