Simplify, Simplify, Simplify

FarieFly_v1.0

The Fairy Racer
Simplification of Volume Through Value

Man has this character gotten out of control, had to take a step back and super-simplify everything down.  I guess seeing as it’s the couple days from the turn in deadline, it’s no wonder I’m having so many issues and changing a bunch of things…  Seems to be a reoccurring theme.

Something to think on next week

Alright, fixed both the arms, simplifying the shape and pulling them in a bit more, which I felt made it look like she was flying faster.  Then I spent some time filling in her facial features and laying down some values (not too much, just enough that when I’m drawing her racing gear I can get a sense of the shapes, curves, and volume of the body.

I forgot to fix her right set of wings, they were slightly out of line with my perspective guides (love those things, actually downloaded a couple perspective brushes *happy face*), right leg too… maybe.

So, next comes the racing gear/armor.  :)
