Here are some studies I did over the last few days of my Astral character. I am trying to define her "look," determine an appropriate age, and train myself to draw her much faster. I'm also trying to give her face more expression - make her a unique character with her own personality traits. So I did a few really fast charcoal sketches and then dragged them into Photoshop for some refinement. Hope you enjoy these. I am including one of the original charcoal roughs.
