Ridley Duncan - New Concept



Hey folks!

I've received some valid critique in the past on Ridley's design, or more specifically, the confusion on just how old he is. Ridley is supposed to be 16, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that he looked older in previous designs.

The culprit, of course, was the facial hair.

I make it no secret that I have injected a lot of myself into Ridley as a character. I remember when I was 16, I was sporting some pretty significant facial hair. But in retrospect, I also remember spots that didn't grow properly and were awkward, thoughts I try to forget haha. I still think Ridley is the kind of guy who would sport a little bit of fuzz on his face, so I left a little spot for him right underneath his lip. I think he looks much more like 16 now.

Also, I'm ditching the Fundo logo on his shirt. I will probably be replacing it with some kind of simple, adventurous icon, but the Fundo logo is too complicated to draw several hundred times. I should have considered that when I first drew him, but oh well.

But I want to hear your opinions!

Will probably scrap this later, just wanted to get some thoughts before I do.

Good job. I think he should wait to grow a beard until he's at least 21
