Character design for the valiant little tailor from the eponymous Grimm fairytale.
The tailor encounters a giant with whom he has a series of physical contests. I thought a lot about how such rapid growth could have odd effects on his proportions, and how very tall people can sometimes have a stoop from feeling self-conscious about sticking out.
A character lineup including the valiant little tailor, the giant, the king and the monstrous wild boar. The king has some pretty obvious Bavarian influences.
