I'm designing this character because I figure that if I start a project of some kind and follow it through it'll force me to draw poses, scenes, objects etc. that I'd usually shy away from and therefore hopefully improve.
(Most of these are already in the doodle thread but I didn't want to continue clogging up that thread with similar drawings.)
These are the first drafts I did to decide on what the character would generally look like in terms of clothes and stuff.
For some reason I decided to go for a style change and I'm not sure if that's going to affect the clothing choices. Now I'm trying to settle on a hairstyle and face, I think if I get that part right and convey her personality then the clothing will come more easily.
And I love how utterly different the initial designs are compared to the two below.
Still trying to refine her looks, and I think I'm still way off.
