Simon Update

Here’s a Simon update! He’s the main character of my story, Guildies. He’s a member of the Mercenaries Guild Conglomerate, and he’s sent to watch this interesting house in Sutton, Michigan. I wanted to do more full-body posing, and work on his collar. I like how I did the collar as well as the rips on his clothes. I used zig-zags instead of something more complicated for his coat, and I think that worked well. I also modified his eye shape to make it easer to draw.
