Original sketch for Axer showing him with his cowl on, then no cowl, then in his undies.
Was/is one of the lineart bases used when drawing his full uniform.

Like sketches? Check out my twitter at Jayaxer, I throw up art and sketches there too.
 Cheers!

I guess the females of his species are the ones with the big feet? Or it just varies between individuals?

Looking very cool and badass. Love the designs, especially with the gas mask.

I do have to ask, why does he wear a gas mask? Is it for any specific reason or simply for aesthetic purposes? Either way, it looks really cool.

Thanks!
   He wears a gasmask originally due to his alchemical work and then for comfort as he got so used to having it on as it also serves as a social barrier around those he might not trust.

Fantastic work as always. The design of the outfits are great, very interesting shapes.

I do have a quick question as to gain some insight on your workflow. When you're sketching out a figure, do you prefer to sketch the body first, and then layer clothes on afterwards? Or do you just go straight into drawing the outfit? Particularly if the character is wearing heaver, less form-fitting clothes-- an outfit that really affects the silhouette.

Thanks!
  I normally draw figure first but there are exceptions. Generally, though, I draw figure and keep silhouette in mind for outfit so I may go loose and then put clothing on but I want to make sure the inner workings make sense first even when going with exaggerations.
