NEWS FLASH: Check out our feature on Nintendo Life for some juicy inside information!

Like any other character design we want our goblins to feel original and we want the story to back up their existence.

I started collecting tons of references for goblins and similar mythical humanoids - a good way to know what to avoid and what to keep. In the end the most important thing in a good character design is personality. I wanted FoM's goblins to have plenty of personality ranging from goofy to sinister.

Here's few sketches I did.

We decided to go with a couple of the designs and started doing some more eloborate b/w concepts.

A goblin warrior riding a green lama like creature (a lima maybe?).

So what's your favorite goblins of all time?


Wow great concept art! I LOVE it!
