|Ma-Rey Sue - Now with 100% less|
head scarves and googles.
Much of my time in her development these last couple of weeks was taken up with creating the character's hand sprites. Each hand has 24 different sprites to give you a range of pose options. Even though I was adapting the same hands I used with my color monkeys to work with Rey, the process was still quite time consuming.
I'm still figuring this part out and have yet to draw the robe section for the spine character accessory.

the head scarves and googles.
To do this I had to redraw the head sprite (obviously) along with the neck, to completely remove the scarf. Watch the video diary below to see a narrated speed draw of the entire process.
I really am hoping to get this character finished by the end of November. The most time consuming part left to create, so far as sprites goes, is the mouth. Since the character has a fairly simple mouth shape I'm hoping that won't take too long.
Everything else is just fine tuning and adjustment. It would be really good to get the character finished before the release of Star Wars, Episode VIII.
