We started a new chapter to our Pathfinder campaign, so Liesel gets a new outfit! I wanted to reflect her character development in her wardrobe. She’s more of an adventurer now than she was before, but she still wants to look cute. (You can see her original outfit here)
Some book/movie characters are so special that I always postpone drawing them. I feel like I’m never good enough to do it and that ‘I should wait a little more’. Like they are too special for me to practice my skills on. But then again I’m kinda weird most of the time.
p.s. After I posted this I was reminded that Liesel has brown eyes! It’s just been a while since I last read the book and I had forgotten that detail about her. Now, I’m not gonna change the colour in my drawing, simply because the blue is important here visually. I just wanted to let you know that it wasn’t on purpose that I painted blue eyes, it was a mistake but the colour scheme is already set.
“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn’t already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”
she was the book thief without the words. trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like the rain.
