I have decided that the character I will be developing is Spoon Knight, a knight who both uses and has parts of their armor based on spoons.
From my first drawing being a more “realistic knight”, I have developed them to be more stylised. I have drawn inspiration from both medieval knights and the indie video game “Shovel Knight” and have begun to develop their armor itself to be based more on spoons and my collection:
- The crest on their chest and their shield is a design on the base of a spoon in my collection
- Shield and Tassets are based on the bowls of spoons
- The shape within the helmet and comb is based on a spoons basic shape
I feel this character would be most suited to either a video game, like “Shovel Knight” or a comic book/zine. Whichever it would be, I would like the content to be fairly lighthearted and humorous, that would probably appeal late-teens more than anyone else.
