A fair number of redraws/redesigns of characters from an old project. Some overhauls are more drastic than others. (Please full view!)
From L->R on each row: 2008, 2012, 2015
1st Row (Messenger): In my opinion, a pretty significant personality overhaul despite maintaining the same plot/setting purpose and respective baggage that comes with it. Pretty much only the basic wing elements remained. Wowzas.
Also much more attractive. cough
2nd Row (Guardian): Probably the most natural progression of design, I think I conveyed the fighter base much more with this
because at some point I learned about muscles. I guess being a lady now is the biggest change.
Also lol that I guess the two swapped which direction their cloth went XP
3rd Row (Forest Spirit): Oh my god this fucking design, what was I thinking in 2008 and 2012?? Since this one was supposed to be a forest spirit, I extracted and exaggerated an unfamiliar shape from a flower. (You can see the flower in the sketches.)
Final Row is “The Walking God” and is the namesake of a project. Honestly I just put it in this set because I want to share it but don’t have enough other art from that set to warrant its own post.
EDIT: Since I’ve decided to use this as my Yuri Game Jam premise, I’m retroactively tagging it as such. (Title is also Heavenseed)
