I'm currently working on a short comic and I've been developing ideas for the main character:
The first headshot.
The drawing on the left is the right idea for what I want to do with the character, but the age isn't right.
The finger instruments appear, that she'll use to make beautiful paintings.
And younger still...
Here, I almost have it. And I love the hat...
And here we have the fish hat.
Here, I have come up with the final design for the character.
Finished character design.
