My Current Project: Zacchaeus/the Rook
Here's a sketch of a character I'm designing for my friend and writer Matthew Rodriguez. This is Zacchaeus, the short guy from the Bible who climbed a tree to see Jesus. In the story he's become the sort of leader of a group of heroes in the very near future. For reasons I won't give away he's been around since the time of Jesus, has traveled the world, and has seen it develope into its current state. This is a sketch of what he will possibly look like; just a clothing test if you will. He will however usually wear the hood, have some sort of Native American bag around his waist, carry a staff, likely of African origin, and his weapon will usually be a khopesh, or sickle-sword.
