Rise, Rebel, Resist

I was inspired by the concept art for Battlefield 1. So, I created a small number of character designs based on partisan factions that fought in the Spanish Civil War and World War II, which was an interesting challenge trying to mix the needs of the design with the representation of actual historical factions.

A very educational and inspiring experience either way, in attempting to find a grounded and believable approach to my concept art.
