Scrap: Redesigning Aria and Requiem by J-Starlight
Scrap: Redesigning Aria and Requiem
I looked through my list of characters and I was shocked to realize something: Aria and Enya share the SAME design for body and hair. I was not very happy about that so I decided to overhaul their designs completely. I was on the right track with Requiem's design but I needed to translate that to Aria and they have to be somewhat similar as they are siblings after all.

___So that did I do here?____

I was going off the ideas and concepts for Requiem and how it was mentioned in my ORACLE: Despair's end that Requiem and Aria are "Marble Fox Lubris". I went and found some reference pictures and then based the designs off of it. You can see some skeletal work as well a lot of brainstorming as I wanted to capture the right feel + have it work for multiple views. I had to be able to tell the difference between Aria (female) and Requiem (male) so I applied a few things: Females are shorter than males in terms of body and proportion and the eyes of females also different.

__So how is it in the end?____

Well, I am quite happy with the 'sketchy' work so when I translate that into full color, it would not be too difficult now. I choose to remove Aria's long side fringes but I may decide to add something else as she is supposed to have a mysterious vibe to her (still working on that).

I wonder if you guys like to see things like this from me

Well the note at the side says it all.

I am still studying how to draw hair for anime characters and the outfit is just a random design with nothing set in stone. I find Aurora to be very adorable like that since she is the 'shy' one and shows a lot of humility and innocence. Still working on more sketches and studies, please bear with me as I try to improve more.

I originally wanted to do a full drawing, complete with background and effects but just getting the character right took most of my time that I set for this and welp (shrugs) this is all I am going go for. This style isn't what I wanted but it does look something like another style I saw... though I can't really identify.

I have been trying to improve over these past few weeks and I was neglecting to get my art out there, into various groups that could give me a bit of attention and maybe feedback. I am looking for groups that I could post my pictures.

IF you know any groups that take in fantasy creatures art and has a good community behind it, let me know.
