WIP #7 "Dark Nightingale" zeitgeist


Working on: Original anime character design of a zeitgeist (my original Fairyland species). To be put up for auction as an adoptable!

Inspired by: Nightingale bird with Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale 'The Tallow Candle'.

Completed: Flat colours

Currently: Applying shading

Thoughts: Finalising the colour scheme didn't take long, but my clicking finger's still a little numb, so I'm working more slowly than usual.

WIP #6 "Dark Nightingale" zeitgeist


Working on: Original anime character design of a zeitgeist (my original Fairyland species). To be put up for auction as an adoptable!

Inspired by: Nightingale bird with Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale 'The Tallow Candle'.

Completed: Greyscale flats

Currently: Experimenting with colour scheme

Thoughts: Working on the finer details of this character design made my clicking finger numb x_x I've been trying to give it a break by using my left hand or clicking with my middle finger... Hate it when this happens.

WIP #5 "Dark Nightingale" zeitgeist


Working on: Original anime character design of a zeitgeist (my original Fairyland species). To be put up for auction as an adoptable!

Inspired by: Nightingale bird with Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale 'The Tallow Candle'.

Completed: Line art

Currently: Applying greyscale flats

Thoughts: I've decided against a veiled headdress; Dark Nightingale's long hair would look far more dramatic without one.

WIP #4 "Dark Nightingale" zeitgeist


Working on: Original anime character design of a zeitgeist (my original Fairyland species). To be put up for auction as an adoptable!

Inspired by: Nightingale bird with Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale 'The Tallow Candle'.

Currently: Cleaning up rough draft

Thoughts: I've always loved the look of pretty lace on clothing designs, but it takes so much patience to draw... I actually started out by copying and pasting, but because I want some movement in the dress, I'm making myself redraw the lace pattern every time...
