I was at ~RaXt0rs place this weekend (after 2 years of not seeing him, phew) and apart from drawing a lot (maybe I will upload the stuff later) I got motivated to work a bit on my characters. I still have absolutely NO drawings of one of the main characters, Erik, but he is probably the most difficult one. So here is some more of his daughter, Sam. This is the teenage Sam, more bratty and moody than the older one. Her color scheme is driving me nuts, apart from hating pink and colorful things I do not really know how to deal with blonde hair and blue eyes.. but it's a start.

for those who would like to know more about her
(yes indeed those people exist, I met some):
I guess she is one of those people who get hit by puberty like by a sledgehammer, she sprouts all the typical symptoms - rebelliousness, screaming fits alongside with periods of impenetrable silence, deeply rooted doubts about her place in this world.. being hardly able to remember her mother and having a father so absorbed in his life's work he seems to have completely forgotten the child which he kept out of mild curiosity and lost interest in rather fast.
But deep inside she already is what she will fully become later once she grows up, a kind-hearted, but strong woman with a sense of justice who has not given up on humanity, despite of (or maybe because of) what she has witnessed growing up - encapsulated in the world of someone who never believed in anything apart from his own creation.

sketched with pencil and roughly colored with photoshop, to see some possible colors for her. still took a few hours... stupid mouse.

Ts ts ts...Tak starsia vyzera serioznejsie :D....To ma na nej asi pritahuje viacej...Ale prave pre ten vyvoj asi potrebovala prave takuto past *deeply in thought in growing up processes and their result in individuals later behavioural attitudes* (no co, niekoho zaujima viac genetika a niekoho psychologia :P...Mozem aspon obdivovat nepostradatelnu jedinecnost individualit :))...
A k obrazku aj, sa mi paci asi najviac ako si zobrazila tu screaming fit ;)...A tie nohy...Ehm drool ehm....

psychologia, nieco pre trpezlivych :]
K postave... niekedy je cesta veduca k dospelemu cloveku dost nepriama - to co u Sam zapocalo ako cista rebelia k svetu a nazorom jej otca ju doviedlo k serioznej kariere a zodpovednej povahe, niekedy destruktivne burenie sa autorite v mladosti je prvym krokom na tej spravnej ceste asi :]

These sketchy-like things are just perfect, much better than clear versions.

I share your taste I guess, I prefer messy stuff over clean almost all of the time, allthough there are instances where a sketchy style does not fit so well.
thanks!

yeah, there are, but the scetchy-something gives to it atmosphere.
