What a weird combination May Sketch A Day week 2 has been! The week started out strong with another portrait of Khalara exploring her glowing silk moth dress concept.
And then my muse went bonkers with my D&D Tiefling and randomness! But hey that's half the fun with this event. Enjoy the randomness!
Day 6 - Mothglow Portrait
This ended up becoming a little more than a sketch, but I was obligated as soon as I created that mothglow dress design from last week to work it up on the character!
Khalara continues to evolve from her Exalted look and is starting to look more like her own character now, though I'm still giving a nod to the original character's flaming hair with her henna-dyed tips.
Kalara had a hand scar while this Khalara has dyed hands to cover stains from her life as a slave. It's been really intriguing to translate this character to my own story world and preserve what I like about her RPG concept!
I played around with the idea that the silk also has iridescent properties in normal lighting. I may have to work this one up to final sometime, as I really enjoy this concept for a painting! She's come so far since my first sketch of her last week.
Day 7 - Adira
I took a totally indulgent day to draw some fan art of Adira from the Tangled animated series. The first time I saw this hulking, badass, cocky woman and her amazing character design, I just KNEW I had to draw her!
May Sketch A Day was the perfect excuse to finally draw her after many instances of 'dang she's cool' when I saw her in the show.
Sidenote, this was also the first time I noticed the character wore mismatched earrings, something I never noticed until I was dissecting her character design in order to draw her!
Day 8 - 10 - Anko Head Variations
After playing my Tiefling Warlock Anko for the past few years, it was about time I decided what her horns looked like under her hair buns! For those who haven't met my D&D character yet, she's a young Tiefling from a ghetto who grew up in her family's bakery. She ends up adventuring and learning about a legacy of dark magic she never knew of as a Warlock.
She ended up with cute little 'cinnamon roll' style horns which seem to fit her themes and the shape of her hair buns. The shorter straighter horns are also quite nice. Stashing them for later!
Day 11 - Harse
This is what happens when I try to quickly draw a horse from memory. Anatomy from Hell and a horn because I only ever learned to draw horses so I could draw unicorns!
I can’t look at how hilariously bad this is without laughing so hard, I cry. May Harse bring you a laugh today instead of nightmares!
Day 12 - Anko's Dice
I was inspired by the beautiful dice arrangements of SweetDelilahs to make a similar one for my Tiefling gal, Anko! She loves baking and the dark arts (but let's hope she doesn't mix up food with her spell components!)
