Kettlebell Kings Character Concept Art & Illustration

Concept Art & Model Sheet

First of all, I had to help them come up with the character concept for the figures. The client wanted a character based upon their logo, but with a comic book twist. Additionally, the art directors were inspired by the workout infographics on Deezify and vintage Charles Atlas illustrations. After a couple of rounds of proofs, the client agreed on the concept below.
