A Blind Man Catches a Bird

As part of our summer brief we've been asked to find a myth or legend and create a character and make a small animation for it. I came across this story in Alexander McCall's collection of African folk-tales, The Girl Who Married a Lion. I decided to tackle designing the blind man, this isn't the final design by a long shot (like I'm about to try animating him :P) but it is a start, a concept pic to get the feel of the character down. He isn't from any particular culture, I used an amalgamation of a different cultures, most notably Massai and Zulu.
