Lizza’s Wardrobe. Concept Peek!

Hello readers,

today I will show you some of the concept art I did to create Lizza’s tomboy-like look! This files are fresh from my drawing table, and I am glad that the time has come to show them to you!

With her being 16 years old Lizza is a quiet young game heroine. Some characteristics: She is very energetic, vivid, fighter and also sort of stubborn, with a strange sense of humor and “Couldn’t be buggered!”-attitude. All in all, she is a colorful person and it was obvious from the start that her outfit will come in many different poppy colors, too. (If you may wonder why the concept art shown here is mainly black and white, that’s because I find playing with forms and different elements much easier when done without colors. And the main focus lies on finding the perfect ensemble first, doesn’t it.) One tip: Click on the concept art, to see it in full size and quality!

Step one was to find a look and a hairdo quiet individual and also rebellious. I tried various styles, as you can see, and some of them look quiet familiar as they contain well-known standard elements of  Hip Hop fashion. Some of the designs look more sporty then others, and I was quiet content that the final version should have at least on sporty element. After painting her in three more or less casual outfits I decided to take another look at my very early “Blood&Base” sketches and I found some inspiration in them that made me draw design No. 1 (on the left)!

I was (and I still am) very happy with this design, thinking that it fits her character perfectly! Just some light changes may be made … so one may already say: design No. 1 shows our main character’s final look.

As for the question of color: There already is a color palette for Lizza’s clothing which I want to share with you, guys, too.

As you may have seen with Lizza’s portrait used for the file-sheet, her shirt is going to be red, her pair of braces is blue, as  her hair decoration is, too. She is going to wear green shorts with white stripes on them. As for the rest of her outfit, … Here is the newest raw color-version I did! We will see if that’s going to be the final ;) !?

I hope you enjoyed this post and the small peep behind the scenes!? Please tell me what you think about this designs in the comment section! What do you like or may be dislike about them? Would you wear those outfits? I am pretty curious …

And I will soon write something about my habit of creating outfit-concepts in general; how I attend it and how I work using Photoshop, and I hope you will be interested in that!

Enjoy yourself,

your Happy Happy Creepy Cute team (Aschaschi)
