When you don't get what you want at all
For the first one, I had in mind that the character is originally a guardian of the forest... And I got this weird anime-type design. Bluh.
Which bring us to the second fail... I kept thinking "He has to be cute he has to be cute..." and... voilà !
I didn't have that much design, finally since I had a pretty clear idea of the character when I started working on this. (But with much time, I would've loved going farther and looking for more daring designs ...)
Anyway, next time : the selected design of the character !
