I have 2 OC of mine, Ranmaru and Monika but because they are part of my sketchbook concept I rarely draw them.
So I wanted a 3rd OC that my viewers may acknowledge in the future. (New viewers probably don't know my OC at all but I use to have a character that was my trademark.)
Anyhow, I started with brainstorming and because I don't plan to build a background story for this new character I decided to just begin with throwing lines and hoping to find a direction that I want. This is not my only method but since I don't have a good starting point, I decide to take this vague method.
With this drawing I'm really just hunting for ideas, there's some good and bad ideas and one that might look too much like existing character and so on. The important thing for me is to output them, move my pencil rather then just think. In the end I did somehow find few direction I might want to explore further.
Funny thing is that this process brought a totally different character on next piece paper... (I hope to show that tomorrow.)
Not totally sure if I will have 3rd OC but it's another project for my Character Design Work Shop (CDWS)
