Character Design

I'm sure I had a spiffier title earlier today, as well as something to tell. Oh well, I'll remember it later. Or not.

This here's Ameixia. She's been following same themes from the start, but I finally have a facial design I'm happy with, including a super simple hairstyle, which should be easy to draw. Her hair's very straight and stubborn, and as we first meet her, she's not at her best, so it might be neater later....

Her hobbies include gemstone enchanting, deadpan snarking and suppressing her inner manic pixie.

This one is... some sort of a arcane trickster in a sword-and-sorcery type setting ( with maybe a touch of steampunk.) So, basically Eberron?

Magic is imagining something and then making it happen

I actually like this one, more or less.
'tis a character.

Eyes are uneven and such. Eh, it's still okay.

Realistic, no reference

Not too lovecraftian, but I still haven't gotten over my habit of making faces. In all honestly, I don't like it too much, but practice is practice.

Neutral expression = BOOOORING. more exaggerated posing and facial expression would be lots more interesting.

It's supposed to be standing meditation.

As an aside... sometimes my head gets too big and heavy and I can't do anything.

Right now, I like colors and brushes and things like that.

Thinking in Fiction

I keep doing that, thinking these snippets of... Backstory? Exposition?
It's definitely a fantasy of sword and sorcery - kind.
I probably should write the stuff down, but the thing is, it's not my hat. It's Ben's hat, even if he's not wearing it.
Not that I've been doing such a good job with my hat, either.
