Character Design Roughs


“Ancient Eastern Cavalry Unit”  is a Character and Costume Rough Concept designed and sketched in Photoshop for a RTS Game that leads you through several different eras of earth history, present and future. All of the following sketches are from this project and were originally created for Mad Doc Software, LLC. and Sierra Entertainment.




Beginning in the Ancient World you move through the middle age and colonial time to the modern days and the future. Each era features different technologies and different units.Gary_Freeman_Concept_Art_Military_Sketch


While the units represent certain areas and periods, each one was designed as a composite of many different cultures rather than a historical reconstruction of any one particular group.




Because of the RTS perspective, all the weapons, hands and other elements  were purposefully exaggerated and stylized for better in-game visibility.
