The Green Maiden

So! The character above is still apart of Willow's universe. Before I changed the 'exterior' of the original tale the woman was already a character that Willow would meet on her journeys. She is a half human hybrid called a 'Glastiag'. Her origins are not really Indian, more Scottish or Welsh...but she one of my favorites in the story so I decided to keep her and just redraw her to fit into the location that she will be dwelling.

In her summary she is said to be very beautiful, always wearing a green cloak. Some call her the green maiden. She is half human and goat, almost like a satyr. She is said to protect herds of livestock; cattle, sheep, goats (of course) and children. BUT, she also has a dark side. In her legend she lures men to their doom, kills them and drinks their blood. In my story she has inherited all of these characteristics. As you will probably guess, shes more on her soft side this morning...but BEWARE! Her intentions our unclear and she is not to be trusted....

Keep a swimming,

Morning Warm-up

Hi! So above is this mornings warm-up. Still a rough concept of Willow. Nothing too big, but I wanted to post what I was working on. This was just for fun. Hopefully this weekend i'll have time to draw her final design (and turnaround).

Swim away,

Just passing through...

I started this quick sketch of Willow yesterday at work. Nothings final for her yet, but I haven't posted in a while, so I wanted to put something up. I'm still working on her final design (Its proving harder then expected). But my goal is to have it down by Saturday.

Thanks for swimming,

Portfolio Piece- Garment Study

Good Morning,

This image is probably the final form of Willow based on the concept page I did Sunday. There might be a bit tweaking here and there but she's overall done. Yesterday I finished these sketches of her in different clothing. In the first part of the story she's still fairly a young girl and probably wont be wearing anything too provocative. Some of the clothes will fit when she's reach 'womanhood'. With that said, I think I'm going to go with either the drawing on the far left or the second to the far right. Now that I think about it, I might just mix the two and see how that turns out.

Keep 'a swimming,

Portfolio piece- Willow Study

Hi everyone, this is my first October sketch AND a piece I will be putting in my portfolio. Its of one of my old characters (Willow). Only, this time I've decided to change her story a bit. I've always been unsure on what her final 'form' should be...I've decided to try something NEW. And try a new theme to her back story...more exotic. For her look, I was thinking a lot of woman Indian dress wear (I've discovered I love drawing drapery). I had a lot of fun with her, now its just the matter of picking which one for turnarounds, actions and face expressions!

Have a goodnight swimmers,
