Just a sketch I did of Riorla the other day that came out pretty well. It was weird, because I started this drawing all wrong– no stick figure or anything– but it didn’t seem to matter in the end. I should probably try starting the “wrong” way more often and see what happens.
Even though I draw her differently pretty much every single time, Riorla has become my go-to character to draw when I feel like doodling but don’t have anything particular in mind. Back in the day, it was Aeka, but my favorite Dryad has replaced her. I’m still working on Riorla’s game, but it’s been hard to find the time to finish it now that I’m back at Japanator. One of these days I need to sit down at the computer and bang out a few more illustrations for the opening cut scene, because that’s the main thing I still have left to do at this point.
Oh, and of course there’s balancing the battles and whatnot, but who needs that? Meh! Details!
