Here is a character design I sketched for progressive Metal band Training Icarus.
The music band is fast rising in the world of rock and metal. At one stage they approached me to animate a video for them - The character was designed for that video but production has been put on hold while the band continues to establish itself. The video below is an example of how the character was designed and created. I listened to the music for inspiration and tried to capture the emotional spirit of the songs into the design.
