And so I begin inundating DA with Snow Queen work. There'll be more after this barrage because I still have two more weeks of school work to do. haha.
So you might remember Kay from his first version: [link]
. He's changed since then. In fact the Kay seen here is probably his 12th version. NO. JOKE. He was a PAIN and a hassle and I couldn't get him right for ages. I'm almost moved to compile a page to put in scraps called "Failed Kays", haha, just because there are so many of them. And they weren't terrible drawings either, they just... weren't right.
So anyways, here's his final version. YAY. That's my story and I'm sticking to it (ya know... unless my teacher is somehow HORRIFIED by it... in which case you'll be seeing ANOTHER version in two weeks, haha). Some things I thought about regarding his character: I wanted him to be much bigger than Gerda and have the strength to be working on farmland, thus his torso is bulkier than the rest of him; still, he's not a fully matured man, so I wanted there to be a gangliness to him, and have him not quite assured in how he dressed or carried himself. For being so big, he's a sweet guy and very warm at heart. He's not as sharp as Gerda, but he's her good, stable center.
And hey, there's a sheep.
