Bodysketches Concept 1 by KayFedewa Bodysketches Concept 1 by KayFedewa
a few body concepts, along with some color tests.

Nightingale, young SK, Unnamed Tracker, Unnamed Alpha female

still playing with everyones designs, as you can see i made some tweaks to Nightingales markings 

Please assume everything is temporary and conceptual for a character unless I post a final turnaround character sheet! I just thought youd be interested to see how i bang out design ideas, rather than just showing the finals.

I have so many more to do still, so im jumping between heads, sideviews and color. Ill be uploading more as I make progress.

Thanks for looking!

I love how you shape the heads differently to make them look more elegant or bulky.

Great work, again. I think you did a pretty good job with making Swiftkill looking younger. She differences between adult and younger wolves are pretty good. Keep up the great work!

So excited for this! I agree with maybe getting rid of some of Swifty's bangs, while keeping the ecstatic fluff on the back of her neck. I think it'd look cooler, but the bangs on the top of her head look really out of place -- then again, I haven't seen the rest of the characters for the revision yet, so I could be wrong!

I like Nightingale and the tracker's designs the most out of these. Their colour pallet is rather balanced and natural looking.

I would suggest getting rid of Swiftkill's bangs altogether because they look extremely out of place imo.

Hmmm... I have a question! These are all Blackbloods, correct? How much of the story have you revised? I'm interested in seeing how it's now going to be told.

I really like how you're jumping out of the norm of one set style.  I personally am not going that route because I feel more satisfaction going with realism, but I did some research on the subject of character design and it's not easy at all!

Was going to marvel at how close the face markings were on the alpha to one of my old forum characters (and squee at the fact that somebody else uses those freaking eye dots because omfg I love them for some reason), then I remembered I deliberately modeled her to look similar enough to Whitewind to freak out the wolf who killed her in the RP so she could be used as a plot device. XD Like... oh... not coincidence... that's my fault. Hahaha ffffff. Glad your old design has influence on one of the new characters though. I was rather fond of that one. Even if I did want to smack the crap out of the character it belonged to. LOL (omg tldr shut up Lyr)

I like seeing these. It's neat to see how other people fuss with character designs.

Hi Lyrak!
Yeah - Im recycling Whitewind a bit here - not exact colors - a little less blue - but similar look and feel. I really like eyebrow dots! more of my new characters will feature them

The puppy look on Swift looks adorable! I love the leg anatomy you use for your wolves. Personally, I have to work on my legs, paws and angles more than anything xD
Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see what else you work on :)

lovin that alpha female, she's beautiful! Reminds me of Whitewind from the old comic. Also love Nightingale's new markings, I think I like them better than the old. Also young SK is just too cute lol. If you're ever looking for other character designs or cameos, please let me know! I've got a few in mind that I would love to have in the comic <3 you might have to simplify their markings so it's not a pain in the butt to draw for the comic, but it would be awesome to have them in there.

Those palettes! Those silhouettes! I'm actually really fond of SK's design where I wasn't too much before (too red? or something, I'm not quite sure). The muted colors and change in physique really helps, I think, despite what some might call outlandish hair or whatever. Also really like that Tracker guy.
