I finished it guys! I stayed up till like 2 in the morning the day before my birthday but I finished it! And as a reward, I got my trip to the zoo with my friends 😀 we got caught in the rain, it was cold, so not many people were there, aka, we had the zoo to ourselves! At least that’s what it felt like.
Afterward we all went to the cafe, had Green tea Lattes and cookies…all except for Zygona
who had to be the odd one out, getting hot chocolate lol! and we all got super relaxed– too relaxed in fact, after walking around for hours in the cold, and drinking something nice and warm, we ended up looking like a drunk group. Long story short, It was fun! And a nice break from all the chaos I’ve been enduring for the past month >_<!
With that said, I can now provide the full details of what this character design is for. She is my entry into the Character Design Challenge on Facebook. She is my first entry, and most certainly will not be my last. Each month, a new challenge for character design is given. Last month was steampunk adventurer, and May, the month this was done for, was Witch vs Wizard. I choose Witch, and created my Rain Dancer– summoner of storms and in a way protector of rare plants! This will be animated, sometime after comicon in my leisure.
Another thing about this, which made my birthday even sweeter, being as finishing this was a gift to myself, of sorts, this character design became a milestone piece for me. For years, especially since the beginning of this one, 2015, I have been working hard to make personal strides by creating art that is more dynamic/energetic, give my art more personality, improving my ability to render, by creating cleaner, sharper images, with depth, and to also become better at understanding color and lighting. Judging by a lot of the comments I’ve received through Deviantart and on the Challenge Page, all my training has been paying off, because I hit every one of those markers. It’s not to say that it’s my best work, but looking back at where I started, it shows that I’ve grown, that I’ve improved, and that I’m headed in the right direction.
Now onto the next few projects lol! Thank you for reading, and as always, till next time, Enjoy!
