Helia K

This is Helia Kuai, she’s Simon’s cousin. She’s also an assassin, like the rest of the family. I wanted to show her stern and prickly personality, so I made her hair spiky. I like the shape it makes but I’m also considering a ponytail for her because having loose hair isn’t practical for her job. I made her clothes simpler to contrast Simon’s theater kid look. I hope I got her grumpiness across.


J. Shen or "Micey" is a sophomore at Umich. She loves character design and telling stories and dabbles in making her own comics. Sketchbook Smashing is an 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 Her art Tumblr is https://wallmouse.tumblr.com
