I don’t have a good picture of this character in my head. Which is kind of a probably because she’s a lead character. :\
Started by copying a couple GIS faces and also hairstyles for nurses.
About This Project: The rough draft of STEEL CITY, VEILED KINGDOM came out to over 800 pages of paper. I finished the pencil edits eons ago, but since it felt wasteful to toss out all the reams, I’ve given myself a challenge: I’m going to draw my novel (kinda sorta). Whatever’s happening on the printed side gets drawn on the other side–action, characters, or scenery.
This shot: a rabbit teleportation demonstration, and some environment practice of the lobby where the main char escapes to (yeah the rabbit demo didn’t go over so well).
Finished scanning my grey sketchbook!! Posting pages out of order.
Comic artist Dirk Grundy reminded me in a recent post that caricature is an important skill, too! So instead of aiming for +++ accuracy (like the upper left image), I thought I’d try messing with proportions (like the lower left drawing!). OK, so it’s more like a “portrait charge” (French, look it up) than a hardcore caricature, but still!
