My first instincts said to avoid anything that resembles Harry Potter, it’s too recent and I want to push in different directions.  I want this character to feel unique, interesting, and relatable. 

I had the idea of a huge dwarf, towering over a small book and while the idea was humorous, it didn’t have that thing that really stuck out to me.  There were a couple of my thumbnails that I liked, but my first little sketch (with the guy lifting the rocks out of the ground) really felt strong and looked cool, so I went with that.
