Character Design: Andrew by Royalty-Doc Character Design: Andrew by Royalty-Doc
This is a complete revamp of a character I've been toying with. The original was more of just a knight... which is cool! But a knight-cowboy-cyborg-mercenary type guy is pretty cool too. For a noble steed/partner (who I'll draw at a later date) he has a magic, flying dolphin who is actually the reincarnation of Doctor Watson... and shoots lasers from his eyes.

This was the original design:fav.me/d6xsuei

Which do you like better?

Definitely this version.  Although my mind went to two possiblities.  He could be the same character and he travels or survives through different eras.  Or they are distant relatives.  One in the spacey west, one in medieval times.

Hey, that's not a bad idea! I'll definitely give the one about travel between eras some thought... maybe like, alternate realities or something!

I like this sort of I don't know Cyber- Western sort of Tri-Gun genre and this is absolutely awesome! But I feel a little more detail on the gun might be a nice touch to match the characters armor

Yeah, I was kinda thinking that too... I'm just not sure if I want to make it more steampunkish or futuristic.

Ooh dang that is one awesome character! What would he be like in personality and such? :)

Despite his looks, he's not the "classic loud badass," kind of character, he's much more approachable and likeable... and a little bit goofy. Some of that though, is an effort to hide his inner darkness, even from himself. Basically he's a good guy with the capability to be extremely cruel. But only cruel to evildoers; he's got kind of an avenging angel thing going.

Kinda like Gandalf meets Captain Jack Sparrow meets The Doctor... with a little bit of Old Dante mixed in. If that makes sense?

Yep, that does make sense to me! He does seem like a pretty great guy. :D Might I ask what his powers are, if he has any in the form he is in? :)

Well, he's undead, so he can't be rekilled... at least not easily. Other than that, it's just his weapons: a gun, a sword occasionally, and a magic keytar!

Heh, gotcha! Sounds like then he's set for some crazy adventures. How much punishment does he tend to take since he's undead? I'm imagining he generally can take as much punishment as he wants and usually does end up needing that sort of undead invulnerability. :D

Indeed he does end up needing it! He's not completely invulnerable though, if a body part or limb gets completely obliterated, it dies and needs a replacement. His left arm for example!

Ah gotcha. Definitely seems like it then. How many foes has he taken on at once before? Has he fought armies on his own? :D

I really don't know yet, I only just started making up this story... a whole army sounds a bit over the top for the this guy though..

Both are pretty cool :3 I like his armored arm in this version, but also his hairdo in previous one. :thumbsup:

Good point, I might end up throwing a groovy hairdo on this version too...
