Bard (concept art)

4thWall Awareon character concepts were designed by descriptions from Rog and art by John Amor, whom is freelancing for the 4thWall Awareon project. We love John’s work and he’s nailed our requested style perfectly. If you’re looking for a freelance comic book / style artist, you may want to look him up, here’s his website: johnamorartist.com.

Bard will be a notable character during the first mission of our game. He’s meant to epitomize the “Administrator” faction. He’s large and he’s in charge. I asked for an opulent, wealthy merchant look for him and this is what John came up with.

Bard used to be a working-class member of the “Engineers” faction, but he pushed and climbed his way up to a position of power. As an Admin, he still has a strong bias for his previous faction. He is a champion for the workers that keep the Norship running and operational. That said, he enjoys his status and all of the benefits that it provides.

Included here are front, back and side poses as a model-sheet to be translated into 3D, along with facial expressions which will be used as reference for facial rigging.

For commentary, there are two Google+ posts regarding this concept art, for Bard’s front pose and Bard’s facial expressions.
