My participation for the Character Design Challenge of July 2017!
Theme of the month : Tarot
''A mysterious Fortune Teller has just arrived in your town. No one knows who she is, nor where she came from, but rumours claims she owns a unique set of Tarot cards: when she shuffles them and then lays a card on the table, the character in it comes to life..''
I designed a personification of the tarot card "The Tower".
Elements I kept ( or tried to keep ) from the original design:
- The lightning
- The crown
- The collar of the gown and the crown are a reminder of the top of medieval towers
- The two ribbons symbolize the people falling
- The rock at the bottom
- The tallness
I've tried quite a few new technique on this one. Found a fun little tutorial to do the lightning, used my new Kyle's watercolor brush for the sky and the shadows. Also took a bunch of time with the lineart to do a lot of variation with the lines. I'm quite proud of this one and hope to be able to archive again that kind of coloration!
