While at art school, I have been working on a character design for a friend of mine. The description that I was provide with was the character is a tall, skinny women with white spikey hair. She is also resides in New Orleans as a witch. I was having a difficult time designing the clothing because I couldn't really find any clothe style of New Orleans. I was thinking of something steampunk or fortune tellers look but I still need to do some more research.
The influence on these designs are based on Brian Kesinger's Walking the Octopus characters and Brittney Lee's artwork. Check out their blogs to see more of the artwork:
