Here are 2 five minute studies, one 11 minute study (gah! I hate this one, pose was so damn difficult and the reference was wearing pants and shoes… :P ).
I also did a 1-2ish hour value study. All the references are from http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php
So, here’s more YuChi (re)designs. I decided to change up her body. In the last picture I tried to give her something other than the “curvy, skinny, big breasted” girl thing, because really, that’s hardly the only body type and hardly the only kind of pretty. But I don’t think I went far enough. My best friend commented that I could still push on giving girls less “ideal” proportions. I wanted something athletic, so I went to this page (a reference of olympic athletes and their very, very big variety of body types) http://ninamatsumoto.wordpress.com/2010/12/18/athletic-body-diversity-reference-for-artists/# and used the athlete Tabitha Yim as the reference.
So… I wasn’t feeling well today, (think I got food poisoning :P) and I decided that instead of doing homework… I draw XD So I redesigned one of my characters, like a total reboot of how I drew her before. I think I like it. Though, I guess it fits since I overhauled her back story as well. Her name is YuChi and she’s a vengeance bent vigilante, who happens to be very cheerful and friendly on her time off.
I decided to do a practice to see if I could differentiate two characters some. I think they don’t look as different from each other as I’d like… but eh. Camilla is the modern day human AU of Emi from the previous picture I drew.
