"I'm as good as royalty!"
- The Medieval Scout
Wound up taking a bit longer with this one than with the past few, due to... technical difficulties along the way.
Coming up with a redesign for the Scout was pretty interesting. On one hand it was pretty straight forward; he's a scout, just draw him so that he looks like one and call it a day, right? At the same time, though, I wanted to play off of his arrogant and superior attitude, and decided that a good middle-ground would be for him to look like a royal messenger kind of guy.
The hat is an old-fashioned beret. A bit more renaissance-inspired than anything else, but it still fits the theme, and the Scout's somewhat upper-class apparel.
The primary weapon is a slingshot. That's right, a slingshot. Not entirely sure if they had slingshots like that in those days, but come on, it's perfect for the Scout.
I was thinking of just using the already existing Boston Basher for a melee weapon, but decided that I'd rather just come up with something of my own. So, instead, I gave him a flail packed with pointlessly long spikes. Probably gonna hit yourself with ease, swinging such a thing.
