On completion of my two main female characters I decided to get started on the first of my male lead characters. This is the character that the princess falls in love with, his name is ??, he is human and he loves to surf. I began by researching some images of surfers and cartoons that include a surfing character to get some inspiration.
I decided that he would be a surfer, my story is a more modernised version of The Little Mermaid and instead of him being a sailor I wanted to make him something more contemporary.
In designing him I began with hairstyles. As I already new his basic facial features I thought this would be the best way to start.
