Just thought I’d quickly upload these rough sketches I did to test how Scratch might appear in different poses. Given that she’s one of the most physically active characters in the narrative (as it currently stands) it’s important that she looks right in action. Also, note the jacket in the right hand image, an addition I’m still working out – it needs to look suitably modern for a future setting but at the same time I don’t want it to appear frivolous, rather being sleek and utilitarian.
I really like how you did the smoke. Very stylised and efficient. And making it flow on the side lets the face clear.
Thanks, I was rather pleased how that one turned out. Drawing abstract stuff like smoke, fire and explosions usually goes very wrong for me, but I seem to be getting there.
