Character Profile sketches by KayFedewa Character Profile sketches by KayFedewa
Hi again guys,
Have a whole sheet of character head concepts - I cut out my favorites that I think im going to move forward with and made this image so you could see.
Im trying to make sure that, markings and colors aside, each character will look different
I still have more character heads to make, then i am moving onto body shapes.
let me know what you think!

Nightingale, Dawn and Bear (last 2 names possibly placeholder) are old friends. Night is a master hunter, Dawn a master tracker, and Bear a master of martial arts.
You may recognize 3 of the juveniles - blood swift and rip
Walnut is a new one - shes still being designed. Though technically they *all* are still being worked on -even these profile designs are by no means final. Ill be redesigning body shapes, and there may be some slight changes to everybodys colors and markings.
 
I need to do a lot more of these, so Ill be updating it as I add more. A majority of the old BBA characters have been removed, and some new ones have been written in that need designing.
Ill also be going through and trying to salvage bits and pieces from old characters I liked - for example you may notice that Bear is quite Warbound inspired. Its been neat looking back at my old stuff and seeing a few things that I still like (normally as artists we look back and go "ewww what was i thinking!" and that is about 99% of the time for me!) But sometimes I will find a motif in one of my designs that i still vibe with.

 I forgot how much fun it can be to design faces. Maybe Im too subtle about it though and should be pushing shapes even further. I suppose its a balance - I dont think I want the world looking *too* toony, but i definitely want to capture *character*!

The faces are very well drawn. I 've been reading your comics since you first published them and bought your first edition of the BBA series. I loved the story line you had going, yet I'm sure with your brilliant brain you can add on to it. I really liked your art style and honestly used your work as a ref to create my own. I think the expressions have become a bit too tooney, especially Swift's. Blood is perfect staying bitchy and grumpy as per usual, but I can't help but prefer your previous style. This new one seems more sketchy and blocky and a bit more tooney. Don't get me wrong, I still adore your work, I just miss the old style. I hope to see more of your work in the future as the new story line progresses. Keep up the brilliant work Kay <3

thanks for the honest feedback. The "tooniness" level is definitely a delicate balance that im trying to feel out right now. My latest feelings on the concepts have been akin to what youre saying. I think the "blockiness" is a big part of the problem. I think the forms need to be broken up with more furriness - smaller clumps of fur rather than really big, smooth ones. Hopefully my future drawings will reflect that

Of course, I'm always happy to. And yes, that perfectly describes what I was saying. I think changing your style can be quite healthy to your artworks development later in the future. All I can say is your work is still nonetheless brilliant and continue to study your style more as it progresses. I can't wait to hear the new story line <3

    After all these years, Rip is still my favourite character of yours. The differentiating physique and facial features is fantastic! Keep up the great work.~:heart:

Oh my goodness, Bloodspill looks so beautiful but still looks so badass!!! Cooool :-D
With your new style, you can REALLY bring out the personality the character has just by his/her's looks :D:D
