Elisewin’s character design from my project “The Lighthouse & The Whaler”

The final design for Elisewin was very challenging, because of her particular eye and overall face shape. There were so many times where I put her eyes a little too close, or made her cheecks a little too puffy and suddenly she wasn’t recognizable anymore.

I wanted her to somehow resemble the surroundings of the lighthouse, so I imagined her hair being very soft and almost weightless, white as a cloud.
Her eyes have a subtle lillac tone, but are overall pretty dark.

I did go Monsterpalooza yesterday, and I scored some fun Dead Meat stuff. This mask will eventually be worn by a silent, infamous character. Like everything Matt Gonos does, it’s made of leather. The guy even made a comic book out of leather! Well, not the pages. But he made the characters out of leather and photographed them. Pretty nuts! He and his family were super cool.
