War Chief

The idea behind this character is that he is the leader of a tribe set on a planet with many warring tribes. This particular tribe is inspired by the indigenous peoples of Polynesia, North America and South America, the Warhammer 40K and Mad Max universes.

For the set of basic thumbnails, I wanted to explore both a realistic and cartoony style. I chose to go with a more realistic style.

For the advanced color thumbnails, I created 3 different colour schemes for the outfit and then 3 different hue variations of each particular scheme to find the right "feel" for this character.
