<Character Design Profile - John Mason>
From a dark, somber man, to a weary old grandpa; our artist talks about John's early designs, and why his appearance kept changing!
<Phase 1 - The Survivalist>
As mentioned before, the world of Rocket of Whispers used to be much bleaker, so our very first take on John was more realistic and somber to reflect the harsh, unforgiving world he's in.
<Phase 2 - The Grandpa>
We added a few decades to his age, and a white beard to create a tired, world weary image.
<Phase 3 - The Pretty Boy>
Old John didn't sit well with many players, so we went in the opposite direction and made him a pretty young man with flowing locks and sad puppy eyes.
<Phase 4 - The Melancholic Man>
It soon became obvious that pretty John made no sense either, as there were barely any traces of survival or the apocalypse left. After some discussion, we brought back some rugged, disheveled elements back in, and finally settled on the John you know today!
