Dragons Blood Pirates – Character Designs
Designing a collection of pirates
Developing a different look for each character is complicated. However, I remember seeing years back a silhouette map of carton characters. You could tell which was which just from a blob, and I’ve always tried using that idea as a starting point for inventing a new character.
Before starting work on a book I spend ages creating the characters. Dragon’s Blood Pirates have quite a large cast of main players, all of which had to be designed and approved, and most importantly notably different from each other.
