Dragons of Elanthia: Valkyrie Concepts

This is the design process that the Valkyrie rider in Dragons of Elanthia went through. Originally I had done a concept for a barbarian rider that sort of over time was transformed into a Valkyrie character whose armor suggests she's more of a deity than a warrior.

You can also see a little bit of my character design process at work, starting from little 1 inch. marker thumbnails to explore the shape of the character before I start throwing around color. With these I went right from thumbnails to color because our characters are often pretty small on screen so having big shapes with broad shapes of color helps in being able to distinguish them.

If you want to see more concept art and learn something about the design process for dragons and Riders, check out this piece my art director Tracy Butler wrote about it:
