Help design Ventus [update]
« on: May 15, 2016, 04:28:47 PM »

UPDATE:


Hello again! So the side/torso markings have been redesigned (the side markings on the picture below are out-of-date, so please ignore them, as other markings have taken its place). That problem is outta the way! Woo!
Here is the update: Redesign Ventus



However, she is not entirely done yet. If possible, I would still like to ask for help and ideas.

Something I noticed pretty early on, but wasn't bothered by, was the legs. The leg anatomy is what I've actually wanted for quite a while, however... Let's put it this way:
The whole body has simple -yet a variety- of markings, but then the legs. They barely have anything. It didn't bother me, yet I did think about it. It seemed a bit off. Then someone else pointed it out as well, and the thought grew and grew.

So this is my new question to anyone who would like to help/share ideas:


What can I add to the legs as markings or should I leave them as they are?








OLD/ORIGINAL POST:

Hey everyone :D

So I've been thinking for a long time how to design Ventus... differently. More... Ventus-y, more complex and yet simple at the same time?
Body type I have found out what I would like, changed already a  few things. However, I need help with one area specifically.


The chest/torso (front) I need help with. Basically the chest-belly section.
As you can see here: Reference sheet anthro Ventus (OLD-ish) and here: Reference sheet feral Ventus (NEW-ish)
that the (dark) red marking flows over the torso (front) area. It always felt a bit odd and maybe too simple for me.

So my question is:
What can I draw/put on the torso instead of just that red marking?


I'm looking for other 'textures' (fur short/long, feathers, scales, leathery skin, etc.) to other types of markings, to whatever. Anything goes. Anything would help. Preferably references with what you suggest would help me greatly (:


Thank you in advance.




Note: I may or may not go for any of the suggestions, but any reply would be extremely helpful with regards to my problem. So please keep suggestions coming, even if they're silly or bland! It can help me to give me an idea ^_^

To make an update, I found out what to do for the front torso and side markings! ^^
Most of the markings have been refined or just redesigned entirely.

However, now I'm figuring out if the legs need anything special.
I'll update the first post to include the new question and add a link to the picture of the redesign so far.

So I totally forgot to update this topic, but I have drawn a headshot of Ventus recently of the new design (as you might have noticed, since it's currently my profile picture :P).
I think I should include this, as it does have to do with the design.

Still busy with the redesign, now for a while I've been thinking if I should add the colour orange as well?
I think orange-green-purple is quite a nice combination. It's  my favourite colour combination, but I already have red. I feel I shouldn't remove the red, but somehow place the colour orange alongside it.

What do you think?

Maybe a simple pattern if orange in the purple, like little dashes along the length of the purple strides

@shoon, @Razuel
Thanks for your input, guys, it means a lot you both took time to respond :')


Razuel, what do you mean exactly?
Do you mean the places that I've coloured purple on the stripe-markings over her body, that alongside it/in the purple area, I use the colour orange as well?

Yeah, like some sort of pattern that's easy to draw, in or out of it, either would look good.

Hey everyone!

So I haven't been really active lately with the redesign, however(!) I do have some small things and ideas written down and drawn out. I also drew Ventus' wings a while ago, so I'll hopefully share them some time annd see what kind of pattern (if any) I should draw on them :)


Just wanted to update everyone on the progress (:

Got something to show as an update!
So after having drawn different side markings, and cleaning up the lines a bit, etc. etc...
I now have something to show!

I'm busy colouring... Here it is!




I'm still busy deciding which hues of green I'm going to go for. The design of the green colours will stay very much similar to the old design, but I it still will be a tad bit different.
