Recently I've been inspired by the recent video game Alice: Madness Returns, and I love the art book for it. These are some subtle facial/eye designs for the Kiyohime concept (she kind of reminds me of Megan Fox a little here... haha). She's got to look like the jealous type, and be able to convey anger, lust, and vengeance. I like the idea of red circling around the eyes, so I have pretty much kept that for each one, and I'd have to say I think the 3 designs on the top row are my favorites. I like the slight creepiness in the top right, especially. I'm thinking of making her into some sort of boss character.
Full body designs and hair styles to come!

This design was visibly inspired by Mursi and Karo tribes from Africa. The cultures there are simply gorgeous. I was particularly fascinated by the white paint they use to create patterns all over the body—even blotches and smears of paint look great!
