This is Rue, one of the about 5 main characters in my webcomic-in-process. (I plan on doing it for my senior project....) She looks like a bit of a dtiz in this picture, but that's mainly because I had a bit of trouble with her eyes. Besides that, I am actually more or less satisfied with how it turned out. As with the Garoon picture, this isn't really a full-blown portrait that I took months to painstakingly paint - this actually took about three or four hours. It was done more as a way of figuring out how she was going to look and what her coloring was going to be. Out of all my characters, Rue probably underwent the most drastic and frequent transformations, and let me just say that I am GLAD I finally settled on a look for her, because it was getting really frustrating - no matter how I drew her, something was missing.

Now, at last, she is COMPLETE.

Anyways. Rue was at one point the only main character in my comic (apart from Djin), but my imagination gradually decided otherwise. 



Yes, Rue has undergone many transformations in the past. Including one very drastic one shortly after creating this portrait. Not much to her appearance - I still like the way she looks (although I kind of despise this portrait). Just adding some depth and other things to her character. Fun stuff.
