I want to say this has a a bit of a cool native american vibe going on but it's probably more then that.  Love the design of her outfit though!

Thanks! Yeah, I'm definitely drawing some inspiration for the clothing from native North and South american cultures. Glad you like! :)

Wow, her outfit is awesome, nice colors and patterns. Love the background texture too, like it was ripped out of an old journal.

Love the way you drew/colored the hair and I really like the staff/stick/branch.

Wow really nice one ! I love the folds (?) of the clothes she's wearing (that's a thing I have to work on, great folds are always great to see).
Is she from the project with the winged girl ?

Thanks man! Yeah, folds are tough...Lots of practice required. With enough study from life, you'll learn the general patterns that folds make, and you'll get better at drawing them from your head. The winged girl is from a different project...

Thanks for the kind words...Glad you like! I'm working on this project in my spare time now so it will probably be a few years before it actually comes to fruition, but expect more teasers like this in the meantime :)

This is great Micah! I know you will but please be sure to keep me posted when you get closer to putting it out! Do you ever draw on paper now?

MicahJGunnell Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Thanks Johnni! Lately I almost never draw on paper...My storyboarding job is all Cintiq, and while I miss drawing on paper sometimes, I HATE the process of scanning in and cleaning up my work. Its nice to have it immediately there in my computer so the process is streamlined a bit. If I had more time, I would probably work with a combination of digital for roughs/layouts, then print that out and use a lightbox for the final pencils. That's a bit time consuming though, so lately its all digital.

Yeah man...Thank for the kind words, I'm glad you like it! I still feel really insufficient when it comes to color...It takes me SOOOO long to get something I think looks okay and then I still don't really feel satisfied with it...But I'm glad you like it! :)

Ooh. Very fun outfit here, and love the shading. Definitely got a slightly central-asian feel to her dress.
