the apsaras by vyxee the apsaras by vyxee
The Apsaras. Indian nymph sisters. Lived in the high heavens and were the god Indra's dancers. The were very charming and like to play games of chance. They are part of what Im gonna work on for my character design this semester. Im also working on the story of Tokoyo.
This was a really fast, rough sketch. I didnt wanna color it, but there was so much going on, and so many lines, I needed some color to differentiate what was going on and what belonged to who. :/

Yah it was a good idea to color it.

There's a definate difference in character, even just visibly, between the three here. Here's what I kinda interpret:

The goddess on the left looks kind of down to earth and sweet. That innocent kinda look. Caring in a sweet way...

The goddess in the middle, she looks kind of free spirited, and unattached. Her movement causes her to stand apart from the other two as more of an extrovert...

And the one on the right, has that suave look with a kind of sense of humor to her. She looks like the type to strut around somone and slink to and fro at the same time. Kind of rogueish movements. Quick handed...

But yah, I really like the characters shown here. They're all very different on the outside, but seem tied in some way...

It's a really good start, and I hope to know where it goes :)

this is so awesme - I absolutely love indian clothes, and the ones you've design are really beautiful. I especially like the one on the right....her pose and hair are especially nice. This sounds like an interesting project - I'd love to see how it progresses!

^^ I love this, the colours you used, the poses, the subject, the costumes expecially and the eyes. You have the most interesting way of doing their eyes. ^^ great job
