The Hooped-Socks-Gang

When I created character in the past my only goal was to make some "badass" looking guy or a beatiful girl which made them often look blunt.
So my idea was to create a little back-story for this project and it helped SO MUCH to shape these characters.
Just having a main theme and some indications makes your head explode with ideas and it´s so much more fun to realize them.
So I want to share this little back-story.

The Hooped-Socks-Gang

They all fight against one thing: The exploitation of humans which the industrial revolution brought into the world.

The leader of "The Hooped-Socks-Gang". Once a general of the army he is the most experienced of the four when it comes to battles. Grown up as a son of a forester he early learned to swing the axe.
When the factories arose traditional undertakings struggled. His parents fell into poverty.
When there was a big riot against the factories he received the order to quell it by force. He rejected the command and deserted. He decided to found a resistance group to fight the exploitation.

Bountyhunter Concept

Puh lineart.
It´s a struggle, but it forces me to focus more on the design and that´s good.
