Join Ben Bishop for an in-depth discussion in this video Clothing the villain, part of Drawing Good and Evil Comic Book Characters.
- Now we're going to move on to our villain,…and what he is wearing.…But, before we do that, let's name the layer…where we just did all that new costuming on the good guy.…So, we'll call that simply enough, Good Costume.…Alright, so, new layer.…Where we're going to add all our clothing for our bad guy.…I don't really have a whole lot of ideas for this guy.…Aside from one, that just keeps…kind of staring me in the face as I'm thinking about him.…I'm going to turn down his body a bit,…just so we can see the new stuff that we add.…
Alright, we're back on the new layer, that we made.…And the thing I keep thinking about…for our villain, is the fact that he's this…ancient vampire, sorcerer guy.…I mentioned earlier maybe a robe,…or a cloak or something.…So, I'm going to see what that looks like.…I'm going to go ahead and turn down…his head too, just so I can see things clearer.…So, keep in mind, again, like I've said,…all these sharp points and angles.…
You're going to want to add those wherever you can.…It goes back to the unifying elements of design…
