Concept art for Merida, a minor character in the upcoming side story for TMoS, 'The God and The Saint' or TGTS for short.

I struggled with her hair design the most. Obviously. Her face and general body was pretty much decided early on, but if I gave her long hair it might look too much like Ealaine or Akari, and short hair would be too dymanic for her design. So I gave her shoulder-length messy hair and a hairband. :P

Next week I'll post the one with her colored image. Don't know if the side story will in in color or not, but it's always good to have a color ref sheet for a character. (Also posted this on the TMoS site as filler because I forgot to save this week's page properly.)

She looks great. I do like the short hair for her, I think that anything longer would sort of distract from her stance or be awkward on her back.

i'm glad you like it. I'm very fond of her already and can't wait to color her.

I was considering one long braid that kinda hung off her shoulder but thought that would interfere with Ealaine's design (she has three super long braids) so loose short hair will be a nice contrast. I should post Ealaine too.

You're able to keep your designs simple, yet distinctive. Nice!

Oh wow, thank you!
Normally I'm known for my rather complex, detailed style of drawing, so I'm glad you like the simple stuff too. ^_^
