This is an example of a sheet I did specifically to refine ideas I had floating around in several sketchbooks regarding a character of mine, Raven Bjorn. She is based around the lore of the World of Warcraft universe and has a whole backstory that pertains to everything listed in the reference sheet. She is a druid – meaning she can freely shift in and out of different animal shapes (pictured are the cat and the flight form), and also a worgen; a human who’s cursed with an unstable werewolf-like form.
Normally, ideas for my characters will come out of nowhere, so I end up writing or sketching them down on the closest thing to me – if it’s a rare occasion of not having my sketchbook with me, it’s usually a napkin or a receipt. I am still working on a color scheme, which is usually a whole separate process for me.
