My font is american typewriter, the character I have made is quite old but still seems like a physically strong person. To create a character that portrayed my font I look at what the font was based off of, typewriters. From the research I did I imagined someone who make the parts of a typewriter, and also other metal things, like a blacksmith.
The strength of my character design I think is how well the colors look together, it isn’t a very normal color scheme you would find in the character’s era but it still looks good. The weekness of the design is the placing of his feet, they don’t seem to match up and with the background he looks like he is standing weird.
In the future I could check more carefully so I won’t need to scan more than once, this was a problem while making the final colored piece because there were parts that were not connected. Another thing I could change is to make the drawing on paper larger so the detail would be better.
I think stereotypes didn’t really help that much but it did help with the clothing, I decided to make my character look quite odinary for his era so I guess that counts as using stereotypes.
These are the three color schemes I had thought of I thought that the second one had a bit of a modern color scheme because I based the coat off of photos I have seen in real life and online. The third one was a bit too unrealistic for me and the colors were a bit bright for what my character would wear. I chose the first one because it is what I would imagine someone who works with metal to wear, I also enlarged a wrech just to show how strong my character should be.
