Experimenting With Grace by Shieltar Experimenting With Grace by Shieltar

Grace Harmoney was in dire need of a design update, and part of a new character design is testing it out and seeing what works and what does not work, as well as finding out how well certain design elements replicate.  not to mention trying out different possible permutation of design elements... such as different eye shapes, how curved to make the cheek bones... and just how big should grace's chest be?

overall I'm happiest with the bottom row.  But more experimenting is needed before I start drawing older grace into the comic pages.

Lol, might as well pick the top left if you're going with big tattas.

I'd choose the top left because damn, did Grace grow up fine!

because of a quirk of my art style I find it difficult to keep the hairline above where the eyebrows need to go, so i tend to put eyebrows onto characters only when it helps convey an emotion or there absence would be noticeable.  as the eyebrows are often inside the fringe, or occupying the same position as the hairline.

pushing the hairline up and reducing the size of the eyes to make room for eyebrows an allow them to be a permanent feature is one of the things I am working on.

It's alright you'll get it.
The angry emoticon was supposed to look kinda like this ==>. : x
But deviant art translates it to angry. I always though it was like a hiding lips, or old lady face. I guess I was wrong. XD

How old is she going to be in these pages?  If she's in her 20's then the sexualized body is alright I guess, but if she's a minor then it's kinda veering into unsettling territory.  I mean yeah, as a girl in her late teens, I'd probably adjust the size of my boobs a little bit or make them a little perkier, but even with an average figure the leery looks from guys can really freak you out.  It doesn't feel like a compliment, it feels threatening.  I don't imagine she'd be happy with the kind of a attention she'd be getting with a rack that... distinct.  It think the problem mostly lies within the boob physics, since that's what makes them stand out so much.  If they were drawn with just slightly more realistic physics, I think you'd be fine.

Buuuut on the other hand it's your comic, so feel free to take this with a grain of salt.

Bottom row is best, top right is ok, the top left is kinda weird to me.. Atleast, the mouth is

Really cute designs though!

Ah, the things you have to think about for a timeskip. 
I'd say keep 'em smaller. Or research how non-implant breasts work. Boobs don't... hang that way.

part of the outcome of this test was that while her chest needs to be bigger, and as a magical girl with body morphing capabilities, she's probably had a hand in making herself more voluptious.  she shoud not be as big as many of these versions.  certainly not in her everyday form.

Wait...
You're saying as Grace learns to control changing from human with wings to full Pegasus, she learns to alter the basic shape of her human form to be curvier?
...that is kinda awesome.
