Ophelia – Sketch; Round 2!

Ok, so I made some changes on her. Obviously changed the arm. I think it looks much more natural than it did in the previous version. Also, I think the smirk is closer to what I was trying for.

!! What was that noise? Hm… Just a box.

No reason why I was thinking of MGS at a time like this. Anyway…

I was watching Claymore since a friend told me to watch it. Having nothing better to do 2 weeks ago, I did so. It was enjoyable, but at the same time, kinda underwhelming. After watching it, I realized there was something off cause it didn’t seem finished. Sure enough, the story diverts from the manga’s plot 6 episodes from the end–thus leaving lots of questions and issues open. I can handle small things not being answered, but there were major plot pieces left hanging. Totally uncool. So now I have to read the remainder of the manga. …Well, not really. I’m not going to.

Either way, no matter how I liked or disliked parts of it, it was at least watchable. It also had some interesting characters. One is a crazy bitch named Ophelia. At first, I really really hated her chracter. But then she kind of grew on me. It was like she was so insane that I actually liked her.

This is what I came up with. Still not absolutely convinced with the crazy grin. I’m trying to draw this one to the point where I can say “THAT is Ophelia.” without a doubt in my mind–instead of “This is if you think about it.” I also have a background in mind, but that’s nowhere near a state that would make much sense to anyone else without distracting from Ophelia.
