Olive re-design sketch dump by Orangeandbluecream Olive re-design sketch dump by Orangeandbluecream
Tada! Olive's redesign.

What? Where you expecting drastic changes?

The top three are not the ones I settled for, they were just sketches I did to get the idea juices flowing. The rest should- unless I make more changes- be the final design.

The biggest changes and my reasons behind them.

1: Olive's silhouette was too similar to Axies, so I gave her thicker ankles. I also changed her feet to give an extra bit of difference from the Galaxies models. (because Olive is just a rip off).

2: Her facial features pretty much just floated around on her face, and I couldn't seem to control the size of her eyes, so I gave her permanent eyebrows (I used to have them only appear when needed) and added a nose to help keep things in their place. I added more structure to her face.

3: Torso. Again, to keep her from looking too much like Axies, and to make her look more feminine compared to Axies, I made her thicker at the bottom. I also raised the black marking on her torso higher on her chest, and lower on her back... because I thought it looked more girlish...(and made more sense for her wings to come out)... though she still could pass as gender neutral. Unlike Astra who is supposed to be very feminine and sexy... I don't want Olive to take away from that.

4: I could not give Olive eyelashes... I tried it, but it doesn't feel right (or look right). I did though, make the upper line of her eye thicker.

5: I made the points on her elbow less harsh.

6: Her wings are now a soiled black, I don't have her final wing design on here, but it is sleeker...

7: I gave her neck....

Opinions? Questions? Comments?

Both Olive and Axies's old designs can be seen here. [link]

More in my gallery! :D

It's not like it has nostrils, but I got tired of the flat faces, there was nothing to play with.

After reading the comments, I see that there is a WORLD of difference between the designs, and I feel stupid for not noticing before!

It's awesome!

The body changes are cool...still not loving the eyebrows....nose I'm not sure...think I'd have to see it shaded/without sketch lines...but I'm thinking she's starting to look a little too human. It think the lack of eyebrow before helped make her different from other android faces.

It gives more construction to the face, so I can draw her more consistently. I always hated that I could never make up my mind if she had eyebrows are not... I do know that she does not have eyelashes.

I think she looks great!:D The redesigns you gave her makes sense, esp. with your explanations. One thing Imma have to get used to though, is the newly added nose. It makes her look cuter though, in a way.:meow:

Thanks!

Yeah, I've always hinted at a nose, but only at certain angles.
I just want to make things more consistent, and give her more structure.
