Her full name is Madison, but she prefers being calling by the nickname Maddie. For the sake of making a reference I created a clothing set for her, but tbh I think she looks better without. I really like drawing harpies…
There isn’t much to say about her - she’s married to Aster whom I’m working on his reference, and they have a son named Oliver or Oli.
Misha or Миша is a russian name that is more than often a dimunitive of the boy’s name Михаил or Mihail. However in other languages Misha is used as a feminine name spelt as Mischa. I sort of combined the two concepts to create the more phonically pronounced name that I wanted.
I’m still debating on the spots on her wings on the final reference, as pale as they because her wings are supposed to be swan wings.
She’s still a very much in between character, but for now I’ll post her here. I might come back to her later after the challenge and work out some kinks.
Hanako is a Japanese name that can mean ‘flower girl’.
The headband or Hachimaki are a Japanese tradition. The one she has one just says ‘Japan’ because I actually know those Kanji and was more comfortable using it than the other ones.
www.jun-gifts.com/specialcolle… There is more examples and explanations of them here.
I tried to make the lineart a little thicker to represent Japanese style painting.
The Shiba Inu is a popular Japanese dog breed, one which I’ve wanted since I was really small!! I’m not really picky with dogs, I love all of them but if I had the choice of getting one purebred in my life it’d be a Shiba Inu.
Originally when I wanted to start a summer project it was between doing the 100 characters or doing a mini comic based on Little Red Riding Hood. With my past of bailing on comics in the past, I decided it was best I don’t… However that doesn’t mean I don’t plan on drawing the characters or giving up the idea completely! That’s where Robyn comes - she’d be the main antagonist of the storyline. Maybe some of her other companions will show up with time…
Sparkle Sparkle~! This is actually the begin of new art work - the previous character references i’ve posted have been done this summer. I’ve always meant to make a unicorn character and now I finally got around to it! I really need to work on my equine anatomy, but for now the reference has a more chibi MLP style to it. Hammie is actually a named after Alexander Hamilton. Who is one my favorite historical figures - who also happened to draw a unicorn on his powder horn.
I want a weimaraner so bad. Phlox is actually the pet of my main character that I did for JulNoWriMo (they might be showing up later) - I actually got so fond of him that I made a reference sheet and started to draw him! The second bath photo is actually a reference to the story where him and the other doggies had an incident with a skunk - opps! He really wasn’t that fond of baths to begin with!
Ida is actually my girlfriend’s character that I helped make! Isn’t she a cutie? Ida is a sloth bear, which are flipping adorable if you don’t already know - look ‘em up!
Lotus is my adorable little baby. I really like the concept of leaf dragons - they’re really fun to draw. I tried something similar with flowers but they didn’t turn out as well as Lotus did. I made Lotus’ blood chlorophyll since it is a leaf dragon - get it? Ahah. I need some more dragon characters - but that should be solved by the end of this summer!
1. Kira Volkova
Of course I’m doing everything from scratch - I’ve rounded up every character that I could find (some stuff up to several years ago) and I’m going through and revamping ones I want to keep! However Kira is always one character that I’ll always keep with me! She turned 5 years old last may! :)
