Hey Guys! Bea here! Sorry to have missed the Monday evening post, but I wasn’t feeling quite well so I chose to stay in bed that day. But, today is a new day, and I has arts to share– and will be sharing arts all throughout the week! So, lets get started!
This was a quick character sketch, loose enough to get the idea down, but the theme I was working with was Native American, and Fantasy.
As some of you know, I’m a huge fan of Hayo Miyazaki’s work, so I decided to do a Native American version of Princess Mononoke, crossed over with the goddess Artemis- Thus, Sky was born!
Another thing to note about these character sketches is that I draw most elements of the clothing on separate layers, so I can swap out and change the pieces individually until I come across a design I like enough to run with. In case you’re curious, I added a little animation to show my process starting from my original sketch from my sketchbook, to the one you see above 🙂
On a side note, lately things have been a bit tough for me. I suffer from chronic bronchitis and recently I’ve been having a series of attacks, off and on. It’s a condition I’m used to, but for some reason it just got really bad to the point where I’ve spent many days just struggling to breath. It could be the weather, dander, of certain bug bites, which are common triggers for me, but it makes functioning very difficult, and leaves me exhausted. Fortunately I found some stuff that works for me, that I’ve begun to take consistently, so I’m glad to say that I’m in a state of recovery. I’m still just a bit tired, thus, I’m short for words today >_<
Stay tuned though! More arts coming soon 😀 till next time, Enjoy!
