This week I’ve thought a lot about the main character’s design. I sort of like the idea of having the same portrait for both the male and female version, simply letting the player choose if they’re a ‘he’ or a ‘she’. Though you’ll be able to choose skin- and hair colour, I’d sort of like it if the face remained the same. Of course, to pull this off, the face would need to be androgynous enough to pass as both male and female, so I’ve been sketching a lot of options, some of which can be seen below:
I’m also thinking about making a bunch of haircuts to choose between. After all, it’s been a while since I made a portrait (or any other sort of art other than graphics for the production book), so my fingers are kind of itching to get back into the artsy bits of development!
I’m gonna give it some thought, but what do you guys think? Androgynous look for the MC or two different portraits for the male and female versions? 🙂
