This started as a page of concepts for my character Yim when they get possessed by a very powerful star-themed Fae-Dragon. I had the general outfit mapped out and I think I could push the design more, make everything more eldritch and godlike. I also wondered if I should give Yim’s new form horns instead of a halo of stars. So far, I think horns would be harder to draw.
My real character design breakthrough with this page was Yim’s hair. I made their hairstyle side-parted jumbo braids with an undercut. I watched a video explaining how to achieve that hairstyle, and I think I stylized it rather well. There’s a lot of great reference images online.
Aside from that, I also added some character doodles.
