Today’s art for #Sketchtember was originally an idea for an outfit, rather than a character. But. . . by the time I finished drawing, her character was decided. orz
The inspiration was “witching hour” and “circus”. Not that she’s a circus witch; more that her outfit should have a faint feeling of a circus, of fantastical, amazing things, and some of the design is influenced by circus-y things. Like her skirt, which evokes the Big Top stripes.
As I was drawing, I thought that she looked a little like a stage magician. And she sort of evolved from there: A sassy girl who works as a magician by day, but (surprise surprise) is literally a witch and monster-hunter! (Or something like that.)
Only four days left, and then it’s Inktober. . . !
