Here's a character design I came up with for a hero. I wanted to go for something that did not involve spandex or a giant weapon. It did however seem to involve another mustache.
Rough sketch, complete with Photoshop erasing to obscure preliminary sketches into some sort of distant mountain.
Slightly cleaned up version. I figure him as a mountain man in a very snowy climate. So tough he does most things in bare feet, even skiing. He drinks lots of maple syrup and wears cut-off jean shorts. And he sports a toque with a pom pom.
