I know he looks similar to the knights in castle crashers but when I started drawing this I had no intention to make it somewhat look similar to them. In fact the first approach of mine was totally different with a black face and only a red pony tail, metallic armor and not this much tiny. But I didn't like the design and my first approach. So I constantly changed and developed, sometimes deleted a whole character and redraw everything. After several days and many hours later I came to this final design.
