Slight overhaul of a character I adopted from a user on DA years ago. Changes were mainly limited to the face and hair.
Collected from several visits to Marwell Zoo. Quick doodles of rheas and flamingos on the rail train, some maribou storks (my favourite), a secretary bird and a zebra.
Power Optix by PowerOptix
Used the initial designs as a springboard for this new version. At the very least is definately looks a lot more interesting than the previous version.
Got some feedback re Power Optix’s design along the lines of repeating forms to create unity.
Not sure this exactly subtle. And I tried to keep simple vs complex in mind.
I just some diamond shapes on her clothes in places and played around with creating a repeat connection with her shin guards and coat.
I think the diamond pattern on the scarf was a welcome addition since it looked plain otherwise but I think I may need to experiment further.
