*o* I’m so blown away by how supportive everyone has been about Skyborn launching on Steam….people, you are amazing!!!

I ran across a post someone had compiled of sketches & concept art from the game, so I thought I’d share a little more, featuring Chaska. 

I knew I wanted a character with a gross monster arm pretty early on. Before she had a name, she was Little Mutant Child. (At one point, we’d planned on having animated battle sprites, but it turned out to be too expensive. Boo!)

This was the very first sketch of her that I drew (in the corner of a lined notebook; THAT’S HOW I ROLL). Despite all her weird growths and stuff I wanted her to be sweet and a bit girly, and NOT consumed with angst over her appearance.

I ended up using the first sketch as the base for her final portrait because the expression fit her personality so well (probably drove some of it too). She ended up being really cute and I’m quite attached to her now ^_^

Aaaand finally…..here’s special bonus Grown-Up Chaska!!!
