So here is my design so far! The concept is still like the direction of the Lion Captain as a subject. However I want to experiment a bit more. Added some elements and deleted some that seemed a bit too much.
My next step will be to make a few variations on this character. I especially want to look at his weapon. I am considering to let go of the water pistol concept and actually go with a brutal cannon decorated with 'Delfts Blauw'.
Always looking for feedback, don't hold back!
