So I hope everyone had a great Christmas but its back to work for moi. Been working on a final design for Cleopatra, a character sheet of sorts. The final piece for her and the rest of characters will be placed in their own scenes at a later date but i thought it’d be a useful exercise to practice making a clear character design illustration of the figure alone first.
I’ve used no reference for her actual appearance, only used reference for the tonal ranges and light direction to help. Concept designers and Illustrators who design characters seem to rarely use reference for the faces unless its based on a real life person. So i thought i’d try it myself and create her face from scratch and so far i’m pretty pleased with the way its going.
Here’s also a little warm up pencil drawing too, since i haven’t used pencil to render anything in a while..
