Sibyl

"[The] fire [danced] on her skin. She was radiant." -Ice Princess
And last but not least, our main character. Sibyl is either super easy or ridiculously hard to draw. But I've drawn her so many times that at this point she kind of comes naturally to me. Her eyes and nose are still a bit of a pain though. There's a model that to this day I still see as Sibyl. I'm not sure why. She's just exact to how I imagine her. But well, my style of drawing probably doesn't give an exact replica of said model anyway.

Well here they are! How about some side by side comparisons? Line up time!

A line up of white people.

Eileen

Sibyl blinked. Her mouth opened and her eyebrows lowered. “Wait, you two know each other?”
The girl gave her a mirror image of Reeve's crooked smile. “You could say that.” -Ice Princess
I never really draw Eileen but it's kind of fun because she's literally the female Reeve. She has the same features, just feminine and younger. Anyway, here's Eileen. I really should draw her more. Maybe I'll do a sibling pic with Eileen, Josephine, and Reeve. The next will be the last one, so help me, and it'll be Sibyl. Of course.

Josephine

"Next to him was the prettiest girl in all of Montana. Golden brown waves fell over her shoulders and framed a soft round face. Her thin lips smiled, lighting up the world." -Ice Princess
Josephine might be the easiest to draw. and I love drawing her hair. She just likes to be drawn. I guess it's because she has such simple facial features. I modeled her after a model whom I can't remember the name of. But, she took on her own features and doesn't need references to be drawn (with a few exceptions). Anyway, to continue this series of busts here's Josephine. I wasn't planning on doing the girls but well... Why not?

I wanted to switch the picture horizontally so she would be looking in the opposite direction of Reeve, but instead I made Eileen look the opposite way. Here's the piece with brown lineart. I do these with color linearts then change them when I'm done the shading. I liked this one.

Alexander

"He was the kind of man who's laugh made girls swoon with a sort of laziness in his eyes that gave him a far off dreamy look." - Ice Princess

The hands down hardest character to draw. My goodness... I've maybe had three different variations of this drawing. I'm quite fond of this one aside from facial structure problems. But I finally got an Alexander piece done! Also, I'm considering changing his name. And I know he's supposed to have gray eyes but I wanted to draw him with puppy dog brown eyes. He looks a bit smug here too, which isn't like Alexander at all.

Alexander wins the best hair award.

And for the heck of it, here's a WIP of Sibyl and Josephine. Might as well, right?

Baby It's Cold Outside

There's another part to this sketch with Reeve but I didn't like it. Anyway, here's Sibyl for you.
