Stick Figures Need Not Apply

girl-color

With the unaccustomed introduction of some free time now that classes have ended I've suddenly found myself with an excuse to get some sketching done.  Over the summer I'm hoping to practice some animation techniques, but I need something to animate first, so I thought I might try working up some characters.  Something simple enough to draw over and over, but hopefully more interesting than a stick figure.

Anyway, after a few days I think I've come up with something that will work.  If you're wondering about the strange ears/hair situation well...  She started out as a sketch for a goat with kind of pointy ears; then I turned the little nubs into pig tails; then they got short and turned back into ears, but by that time they had migrated down her skull a bit.  Basically I think just try not to stare, she's kind of sensitive about them.

I don't have a name for this one yet, but suggestions are welcome.
