first of a new series of characters. I did them as part of a self imposed challenge called "character a day" where basically I would have to create a new character from scratch and without any previous preparation in one single day( 8 hours).
The aim of this challenge is to train my mental and creative agility and my hand by creating this character under these limitations and finishing them to a certain level of polish.
I have created a story for each character too :) Since the word count limitation is too low in here, the whole story didnt fit, so I leave a small tease of it. You can check the whole story on my instagram or FB .
Orphan and with only 12 years of age, Ástvar joined the Imperial Armada as a swab to escape the misery of the streets where he grew up. At that time of need, any kind of recruit was more than welcome as cannon fodder in the ranks of the Armada. Ástvar was a boy filled with dreams for adventure and eager to witness the wonders of space and the colonies...
