Dinga-man

This is a rough concept design for Dinga-man, our lead character. We have an idea where the story might lead, but that could all change with every new installment into our story. "Dinga-man" or, as he is referred to in the story, is not his real name (we'll discover his real name later on).

Captured in Africa at the age of fifteen, this Mandinga warrior is on a quest. Rescued from slavery when his slave ship was sacked by pirates, Dinga-man is now himself a pirate. Oddly, although he's been liberated for eight years now, he still wears the shackle around his neck and on his left wrist. Symbols of his heavy burden. Later on in the story we'll have an opportunity to explain that too.

For now, he'll just remain a mystery.
