Train Guy: A Lover and a Fighter

Been  having fun designing this guy. Started off with a loose Bauhaus/Constructivist feel, with silly proportions, but wanted to flesh him out in his physicality with these paintings.

 Initially a tongue in cheek Desperate Dan like character who is all things to all men I wanted to be stern and combative, but also creative and gentle. It's been fun drawing a character with silly arms doing a variety of tasks. Next step is to jump back onto the really angular, possibly vector style to see if the solidity of these painted versions can recombine with something more stylistically true to the initial stylistic inspiration of the constructivist figures of old Russian propaganda.
