Possible redesign for Carlitos. My major annoyance was that his original hoodie was so uncommon that it was difficult for cosplay… my plans are to make his outfit out of things I actually own so I can dress up like him for real.
Gone are the cheeks, I will reserve those for younger characters, the ability to open the hoodie will allow me to give him a cape like trail during action scenes. I have taken away his leather wrist band (since I no longer wear one) and it will be replaced by a ring - story event.
Personally I like his face a lot more now that his eyes are higher, allows him to have a bigger mouth. Also the rounder eyes make him friendlier.
I made the eyes smaller to make him look older.
I will continue to experiment with the clothes but I needed a reference to base my future drawings on.
