This project was our External Art Test for those of us specialising in Concept Art! We had to design a concept for Danielle Thorne; a character that would be the protagonist of 'Homefront: Battle for Britain' as a new hypothetical instalment to the Homefront series.

"Danielle Thorne is the leader of the Manchester resistance cell. She is 6’ 2” and 45 years old. She is physically fit although slightly under weight.
Thorne served as a mechanical engineer in the British Army."

I decided I wanted to have a black protagonist as when I saw the description, I immediately thought of Michonne from The Walking Dead. Her character fits and also being black myself, I wanted some representation too! I went for a design that included not only the military wear but shows a clear repurposing of casual civilian clothing as specified in the brief we were given. I thought it would also be a good idea to include the Manchester Bee given the location of where Danielle is leading her resistance cell.

I hope you like my design!
