I'd been thinking about starting a thread on here since ArtWar finished so here we go. I'm currently working on creating an illustration and a portrait for a character I created in 2017.
The original drawing.
At the moment I'm leaning towards 3) (maybe ditching the rat on her hand to make it less busy), 4), 5) (younger version so when she's a kid) or 7). And then illustration wise probably b), a) or g).
While she's not meant to be evil (she hangs out with rats in the sewers and looks a bit like one, that's all), I'm sort of okay with her maybe looking it in one image, just to get across a sort of "the viewer is scared" of her thing, trying to do forceful narrative perhaps.
