After completing a spooky woodland location tile set I've moved my focus back to the characters. As you can see I've begun to work into the Paladin King sketch, here's the work so far.
The Paladin King character class key colour is yellow (argh!), initially I must admit that I was not looking forward it, but after a little thought realised I could take the yellow and make it work for me by treating it as the visually more acceptable and more applicable (particularly for a kings armour) 'golden'. I also rather like the platinum white inlay which breaks it up.
As I previously thought, after dropping him into the vector package and comparing him to the basic character template its evident I am going to have to make some compromises with certain aspects of his scale to fit him into the wee 128 x128 square; for now I'm working him up as sketched and will hammer him into shape later.
