Character design workshop

For the character design workshop we had to create two characters and make a short story out of it.
My keyword was "mythical" and the encounter was "David and Goliath" or a fight between the characters. 
The references I used were Greek sculptures and a warrior armor which happened to look like a skirt on my character, turning him into a gay Hercules (he appreciates the finer things in life and chasing butterflies) and the baddy is a Homophobic monster (I had no time left to design him, so I went for a quick millipede creature, wearing a mask (hiding its true identity), living in a deep lake (as a symbol of a subconscious fear).

And this is their exciting encounter, kept it very short as I wanted it to fit on one page.
