Spanish Concept Art

I don't like sharing maybe 90% of my concept art for stories because I like to keep them close to my chest. Besides, stories tend to change and so does the art and design.  But the project I wrote for Camp NaNoWriMo a few months ago has been too fun and I started drawing pieces. I can't wait for this to be shared with the world. It's been a thrill to write.

So here they are! The three main characters from my WIP. I made two for one character because I wasn't satisfied with the first. I mostly post these on my tumblr account but here's a quick compilation.

actually pretty out-of-character for her
literally the best character. She's so sassy and fun to write. 

that's a bun on her head. Mostly because I don't know if I want her to have short hair or not. Also terrible proportions.
Can't get her body type right...
Inspired by J.C. Leyendecker. And look! COLOR! 
Detail
Texture!

I really like browns.

Sibyl Hair Tests

After looking at some pictures of pretty hairstyles and realizing it wouldn't work for my hair I wondered if Sibyl would be a good match for the hairstyle in mind. I'm not sure if I'm going to go with it though. I think I need to draw it out more and get a better feel for it. It's not easy to draw too. But here are some tests. The first is her hair color and style decided from the get go and the other two are the styles and colors I had in mind.




I don't know. Eventually she'll go back to just one color, but this might be fun for the story. And it's something different and definitely fits her personality. The thing about Sibyl is she's a character who's entire look and aesthetic speaks to her story arch. It says so much about her and helps define her as a character, so messing with it makes me itch.

I don't know. I'll think about it.
