Hello, everyone!

This week, we're revisiting Luigi's Style Challenge of creating a character based on a given artist's style. Jamie Hewlett is mostly known for designing the characters for the virtual band Gorillaz, but he also makes the graphic novel series Tank Girl, along with other artworks. Have fun!

A question, would this qualify towards the theme challenge... The theme being "futureistic"…

i dont think we've had a "futuristic" theme challenge so no

Hey! ; )

While character design is the overarching incentive here, submissions into group folders are intended for deviations that correspond to our challenges. Pre-existing artworks aren't suited because the focus of Design-A-Character is art creation rather than art collection.

I'd encourage you to use the prompts from the challenges for your future submissions here. Your Repitan character is appealing though. :eager:
