Character Design Flower Bromeliad Sprite orange by madmagnus
Character Design Flower Bromeliad Sprite orange

I was doing a plant study of some tropical flowers and started turning it into a character. It was pretty fun and educating. I recommend trying it. 
-Google image search exotic flowers
-pick 5 entirely different kinds,
-start sketching and studying the flower and see where it takes you.

Subject: Orange Bromeliad Flower
Character: Bromelina

Head over to my Facebook to see a lot more preliminary art and sketches.

Hello friends,

    I wanted to check in and let you all know that working at Sega has been great. The past 5 months were full of fun and creativity. I want to let all of you know that even as a professional artist, there is still so much to learn if you want to progress in this industry. I've been learning so much from my coworkers and art director. They like me and I like them. All is going well.

    Now that I am back in the groove of working a 9 to 5, I feel comfortable enough to spend time taking commissions and making new Youtube art videos. That being said, I can take commissions that aren't extremely time consuming and if I do, they need to be monetarily worthwhile. So let me know if you're interested, if not, all good and stay tuned for Youtube content.

    Feel free to comment to this journal entry and let me know how all of you are doing.

Thanks guys,
Pete

Hey, sorry it took so long for me to reply. Been busy.

I kind of don't have a legit source for making armor. It's pretty much just scouring the internet for things I like and making variations of it.

What I can probably say is, try to make the armor more epic in areas that matter on the character you are creating. For example:
-Swordsman: heavy armor on chest and arms
-brutes usually have big shoulder pads, helmet, forearm bracers, and knee pads. The rest is usually showing off bare muscle.
-try to make their important weapon as epic as the armor.

I hope this helps a bit. I would reference Warcraft, Hearthstone, and League of Legends.

Thanks
Pete

Well, after looking at your character on your page, I see that you're having trouble picking a style for her.
My opinion is that you use use Soul Eater and Sword Art Online reference. She seems like a character that could fit into either of those worlds.
Try to study the way they cell shade and keep your lighting and shadows consistent from the light source. :)
