I was thinking about Brother Bear a lot today for some reason and wanted to draw an old Native-American-esque woman. I think it was a success.


I really enjoyed drawing her wrinkles. I'm pleased with this design. I had to redraw her feet like five times because they kept coming out proportionally miniscule compared to her head. Or we can just pretend I used Michelangelo's 'David' as a ref because he's got a huge head because perspective... (not really, I just didn't properly size up her feet when I sketched her out).

Ah, she looks really sweet and friendly. You did a really great job with her, she's very interesting to look at design-wise. Lots of fun shapes going on with her head and body. Plus, old people are a lot of fun to draw.

Great work!

Yes, you praised me!! My life is complete! Just kidding XD

I really had fun with her design. I would imagine, if I put her into a story, that she would be very friendly and kind to everyone. I tried to keep it as simple as I could but still give that Native-American feel. :3

I wonder what secrets does she hold?

Only the trees and stones know of such secrets~
*flies off into the sunset*

I was thinking of making her shawl a pair of magic wings, so maybe that could be a secret?

Aw, shucks, thank you~

I'm trying to really stretch myself with this challenge, and draw in different styles. I'm also trying to aim for a more generic-cartoony style because one of my professors last term said my drawings were "too anime for my industry". But whatevs, I draw what I like so there :9

YES IT'S A BAD HABIT!! DX

It's just easier for me to draw kawaii things because I don't have to worry about wrinkles and saggy old-people skin and things like that. I think I'm most fond of the hairs on her chin :3

She is old but spry, maybe a little mischievous in her wisdom. You've given her some twinkle in her old age. And I love the design on her ponytail clasp. Very simple yet effective and evocative of a native clan symbol. This is a very cool character!
