Had to take another trip to the library, this time searching Pinterest for clothing reference as I was getting pretty frustrated last night.
Found some helpful stuff, but I definitely forced myself to work harder than necessary because I started this sketch with the head first and worked my way down. #facepalm.
Regardless this sketch turned character illustration has been very fruitful. Not only did I get a better understanding of Verena, but I also got a better understanding of the Academy’s uniform, how all it’s parts work and in the process made it look better too. 🙂
