Janis Eidins talks about how he created his 'Bone Mill' character.
My name is Janis Eidins and I am a self-taught graphic designer from Latvia with 5 year experience, mostly in casual game development.
So, enough about me and let’s get to the point.
Due to the fact that for a while I was not able to create something for my own joy, I decided to dive in to the drawing madness with quick, rough sketches where I let myself completely loose.
Skulls and military theme were particularly relevant to me in the time of sketching. So I came up with this oversized Gear-of-War-ish looking mercenary “thug” with skull face/mask, huge blocks of armored plates and leatherish skirts combined with some hi-tech details.
