So apologies to @OracleSage for bugging him to start this thread and then not posting anything for a week. I had to do a bunch of sketching and I didn’t want to post any until I’d given them some color.
Anyway, here’s the first colored representation I have - inspired by Thornmouth.
I feel like it could be easy to stick Thornmouth fashion into a sort of quiet bookworm corner, but I feel like that’s way oversimplifying, so I wanted my model to have a little personalized magiqal flair. Thus, my spunky purple-loving Thornie ready to uncover some ancient secrets. Classy silky blouse, fun plaid capris, and of course a stylish vest.
(Side note: if anyone knows how to draw shoes from multiple angles and wants to teach me, that person would be my hero.)
