Behold! My main man! So soon after I posted his group shot I decided to redesign him. I made his face more heart-shaped. You can see my word concepts on the upper left side.
Before, I planned his causal outfit to be sweats. Now, he’s in this black short-sleeved collarbone-exposing shirt that resembles a Hawaiian shirt. It’s because he sees himself as on vacation when he starts the story. It’s the little figure on the far right side of the image. I tried to find ways to incorporate red into his outfit without it taking over. I settled on him having some bloody heels.
I also got the concept to give him some statement earrings. I in real life love wearing statement earrings; I just keep forgetting to draw them on my characters. Hopefully, I can remember with Simon.
