Progress with the vines has been pretty steady. I've been thinking about other elements such as Gaia's outfit. I realized with an outfit there would be a little too much going on, so I've decided to take a different route.
I've been looking into tattoos as a source of inspiration. Combine them with the spiritual glowiness creates this Zelda: breath of the wild feel.
The tattoos are by an incredible artist, her instagram is here: https://www.instagram.com/avwolf_tattoo/
Using her tattoos in a test render, it's definitely the direction I want to be heading in. Over the next couple days I plan on designing the tattoos based on the Earth symbol.
I've also been figuring out the form of the bow which has involved a lot of fun researching. I think I'm sticking to a recurve bow rather than a longbow.
