This picture managed to break my art block, so salute it! This originally started out as a character outfit redesign but then - gasp! - the "background bug" bit me and it became more of a full piece than a clothes design. I really enjoyed doing the hills and trees and sky through thr train window; backgrounds can be fun (when you know what you're doing!). The map above the windows is a made up train map.
This character is Jessamine, and she's on the train going home to spend the winter holidays with her family in the countryside! For those of you who don't know Jessy, she's Jonathan's sister and a fashion design student. She's generally a happy person, who starts a lot of projects she never finishes, and needs a fair dose of attention to feel happy. She and Jonathan bicker quite a bit, mostly about trivial things, but they know they love each other so little arguments are okay. Oh, and I really ought to introduce Jessamine's boyfriend on DA soon, as I know more about him than I did a little while ago. She met him on a train, actually - which is why I fancied drawing her on a train in the first place.
I'm quite pleased with this overall, though I had hell with the colour scheme. I so wanted to give Jessy a wacky colourful outfit, but I was worried it would conflict with the background so I swallowed that desire, which was probably a good thing.
