Taya Goes to the Hairdresser

Hello, Micey here. I experimented with Taya’s hairstyle over this past week. I think I’ll choose the side bun as her new hairstyle. It’s more fun to draw than her current short hair. It has more dramatic potential too. I tried to make her new silhoulette different from my other characters.

I normally don’t do such a dramatic transformation, but I recently got highlights in my hair so perhaps it was on my mind.

Sketchbook Smashing is her attempt to chronicle her process in designing characters. From first concepts, hairstyle and outfit changes, or even complete shifts in design. She also hopes to map out how her own art style changes throughout the year. Her website is https://wallmouseart.weebly.com
