I'm starting a new project concerning Ghosts 'n Goblins, a favorite game of mine. I want to draw every enemy, boss and character from the 1985 Capcom original.
All the characters in the game are here: The one's I'm most skeptical about coming up with a good design are the Cyclops, the Ogre, and the Two-headed Golem.
I want a design element specific for this. Since the game takes place in the medieval era, I want to give them all renaissance inspired designs, more classical than modern.
Like giving the Red Arremer a more classic stone gargoyle appearance. There's a sketch below.
I have a few enemies more thought out of what I want, like the Grave Spirit, Satan, the Red Arremer, and the Red Guard but I think it'll be a bit tricky to give some of the others the same feel. I've been browsing a lot of blogs like Monsterbrains, and I've saved quite a few images from the era to get me inspired. I want every character to have that old, eerie renaissance look to them, it would be a lot of fun.
If you have any suggestions for any design elements or characters, let me know, post pictures, give input, etc, I'm open to any suggestions you guys might give. I want to get started on the project fairly soon, and it would go a lot easier for me if I knew what i wanted the characters to look like before I draw them.
