Thanks for the feedback. I started on these in-house drawings before you left me the comments. But I will take all your advice and redesign all of them.
For the blind gentleman, I will take out the shotgun cane. As for the story telling element, he has a tattoo under his eyes from a ghost attack. For his cloak, he collects the spirits and it becomes a part of the design.
For the leader, I don't like how I designed his arm. I am going to go for a more home-made look. Also, the staff will have a more unified look with the character.
So this is my third character. The acrobat girl who is scared to walk on the ground and talks to a crow (that becomes a tengu when her lantern is turned on). The tengu is suppose to be a spirit that likes to play tricks on people. I imagined him as only having respect for the little girl and she gets to ride on him because she is so scared to walk on the ground.
