One of the many exploratory sketches I've done to try and develop the relationship of "the hero" and "the one they love" for my character design project. I think I've pretty much got the mermaid character's design down, but I'm still working on the hero... I wanted to have contrast in their shapes, the hero is more angular and kind of square and the mermaid is rounded, but I think I'll just round them both off :)
critiques are very welcome :) Id love to get a second opinion on these before i got to final
anyone like the design of the blonde mermaid better?
