Radical Racer

Character Design

Client: Deviantart Staff, Jake Parker, TsaoShin
Brief: To create an original character and vehicle design that represents a dangerous theme.
Tools: Clip Studio Paint

Deviantart held a ‘Radical Racer’ contest that asked for original character and vehicle designs that displayed dynamic movement and interesting poses. The overall theme was up to the illustrator, but the contest description gave us the idea that the race the character would be competing in would be dangerous and exhilarating. So to relate to this, I decided to go with a dangerous bull fighting theme with a fierce and crazed racer and vehicle, referencing the traditional Spanish bullfighter clothing style.
