CDWS 20140529 brainstorming for new OC by Toshinho CDWS 20140529 brainstorming for new OC by Toshinho
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)

Forgive me, I should say "I can see why you dislike so many of your own drawings when I see you at your best like this" My mistake

haha, it's fine. I really wish dA would add a "EDIT" feature to the comment section. Not just for typo correction but it should decrease alot of issues going on dA everyday.

As for my drawing, I like to test different images so I can find a shape and the flow that clicks. (So the ones that doesn't click is ones that I don't like and often trash-able.) ^-^

I find it can be quite damning to never be able to rewrite your words :lmao: Your works here are very good, if normal is 10 these are 11, I really like these characters and want to see more of them.
