WIP #3 Snow White model sheet


Working on: Model sheet for my original character design of Snow White

Inspired by: Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Snow White and Rose Red'

Completed: Flat colours

Currently: Shading

Thoughts: Work is moving more quickly now that Snow White's hair is done (the curls I've given her need a lot of attention...). As for my music playlist, I've managed to make it sound new by adding a bunch of old songs I'd forgotten about :3 I never knew how much I missed DBSK's 'Forever Love' or 'Love in the Ice'!

WIP #2 Snow White model sheet


Working on: Model sheet for my original character design of Snow White

Inspired by: Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Snow White and Rose Red'

Completed: Line art of three poses

Currently: Applying flat colours

Thoughts: I was planning to draw one full-length pose and two half-length poses, but for some reason I couldn't resist turning one of the half lengths into full length... ^^; Also I need more songs in my playlist to draw to... Most of the ones already there have gone stagnant... x_x

WIP #1 Snow White model sheet


Working on: Model sheet for my original character design of Snow White

Inspired by: Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Snow White and Rose Red'

Completed: Rough draft

Currently: Drawing line art

Thoughts:
I've taken a very long break from my Fairy Bat Tales blog and would very much like to explore and write about classic fairy tales again. It was difficult to keep up with the schedule I'd given myself, but I've now (hopefully) thought of a work routine that will be easier to manage.

Instead of creating five artworks for each fairy tale I look at (yes, I made myself do that, but at least I got in lots of drawing practice...) I'll see how three will go. I'm planning for these to be an adoptable zeitgeist character design, a model sheet for an original fairy tale character design and finally a simple fairy bat drawing.

To test the waters, I'm going to draw model sheets for fairy tale characters I've already designed. It's an interesting process, because I'm really challenging myself to pay attention to detail and improve my overall drawing style. Perhaps I'm too determined to achieve "perfection", but I guess it's better than not caring ^^;
