Color, shadow, and face study for Jacqueline, tritagonist designer. You may have seen her before: [link]
Heavily inspired by Ross Campbell's beautiful women: [link]
(I think Ross would do a better job with Jacky than I will!)
I decided this turn around I should have a more diverse cast, since the story's no longer set in the rural backwaters of Virginia. BEHOLD! DIVERSITY. I hope I can do her character justice. It's always difficult to write characters that aren't you. This is probably why most of my comics are just Rachel, Tuna, and strawmen.
Jacqueline is wide where Rachel is tall. They are an exercise in contrasts at first, but they have many things in common, both in appearance and personality.
I may regret the purple in the morning and need to revise these colors. Trying to get everyone in the cast a core color to identify with. Additionally, flesh colors can be hard to calibrate for different devices. But neon colors look good everywhere! So if I start with a monochromatic scheme, then make the highlights and shadows neon pops, things should rock.
