First of two matching character designs for class this week- I decided to redraw the characters from my Pele and Poliahu comic ( [link] ), since I hadn't had time to design them before and I am now, arguably, somewhat more attuned to the nuances that go into character design. A little bit, anyway.

Lovely! She kind of reminds me of Kida from Atlantis. I think it's the chest-wrap and the build. But I like it! Especially her "don't-mess-with-me" expression, and the fact that her hair looks like pahoehoe. Awesome!

I love how her hair is like a mountain and lava.

Hawaiian mythology is so gorgeous and colourful. Beautiful interpretation of Pele, very powerful and striking.

Very cool! Her hair looks like cooled igneous rock. The fishing hook pendant is a great touch!

like that she actually has hawaiian-type tattoos, rather than "tribal".... hawaiian tattoos are very geometric.

I love they way her hair looks like the lava flows. Very nice touch to this design. :)

Oooh, that's definitely a more detailed redesign of Pele. So what ARE the finer nuances of character design?
