The next project I'm going to be working on is a mobile character (that looks very much like a chibi). I figured this would be a good project since mobile is now so huge, not to mention I'm in a hub of mobile developers (the Bay Area).
The concept I've recently made draws some pretty strong inspiration from a Chinese mobile game called Allstar Heroes. A lot of their style clearly stems from WoW, particularly in armor and weapon design, as well as character classes.
My character is a fighting (sword+shield) class, much like a paladin or knight.
I'll be making a few more sketches to work out articulation, as well as to figure out final posing, but below is my first sketch.
