Alright, I think I may have finally got it. I draw and draw and draw Neela and it’s never right. So many thrown away sketches and drawings. But I think I can finally say this is Neela as I see her now. A small Fairy child. Large, almost alien eyes, all neck and legs and ears. And some feathers thrown in. I’ve really wanted a somewhat stylized look for her face so it will be hopefully easier for me to reproduce. Plus I don’t really see her having a completely human look to her face but something a little alien and unique.
And yes her colors have changed. That is in large part due to inspiration from a ball jointed doll I got, that was inspired by Neela and has in turn inspired how I want to draw her.
As with her mother, Herla, when her colors changed, it doesn’t mean all previous art of her is null and void, she was lavender when she was younger and now has become darker as she’s grown.
