Everyone Loves Diamonds ^_^

Well those who showed I have to say it was great creating the characters diamonds with you guys.
Just to recap last fridays meeting was a great exercise in character ideation we use a method known as character design diamonds where we basically take 2 or more cliche design types and pick and merge their attributes with other cliches thus creating a new hybrid design. It was a very education experience. Well until the next meeting you guys keep an eye out o_x.
