Introduction

This piece is the third character that I have created for personal work; a dark magician with cool looks and a gloomy, cold personality. I wanted his costume to not be too armoured, but to be more modern-looking, and I intended to have the space featuring some magical steel on the wall, and so I started doing research and finding references to help me on my way.

References

Here are some costumes I found on GQ web. One of the outfits is actually by my favourite fashion designer, John Galliano. So I tried to aim for the same feeling in my character's clothing design (Fig.01 and Fig.02).

3D Work

I started in 3D first of all, because I wanted to get an exaggerated perspective, and I figured 3D would help a lot. So I went to Maya, where I started to model some simple basic shapes as references (Fig.03).
