First up is the female lead for my story. I'm not going to explain the premise just yet, but know that it touches on all the dark elements I'm naturally drawn to ;) I spent some time fleshing out the line drawings in a clear and concise manor before picking out 3 designs that I felt meshed with her personality and profession. The black and white sketches were meant as a way to see how certain costumes and value patterns would work on top of the figure. Which is why the pose is very open, to show off as much as possible in the 3/4 view while her face is somewhat concealed. I'll worry about her head styles next.
Also. this video will pretty much blow your damn mind. Be amazed.
Also just a final note, I was approached on DeviantArt the other day about the possibility of having my Rain Dance Tutorial translated into Ukrainian and eventually Russian for another artists blog. So I'll keep you posted if/when that happens. Thanks much!
