Spindrift Kimur Redesign by ElsaKroese Spindrift Kimur Redesign by ElsaKroese
Kimur is a character that will be introduced in Spindrift near the end of Chapter one. I designed her over a year ago, before going live with the comic, but I was never really content with the design.

It makes sense, because back then we had not fleshed out this character as much as the rest of the cast. When I uploaded the first design, I think we just decided that she was going to be a she and not a he, that Cheves wasn't going to be her brother, and that's just a few of the things we changed :P.

Sometimes designs grow on you... but this one just wouldn't sink in. There was something off about the a-symmetry of her garb and she was so terrible twiggy... while the character isn't athletic at all.

I'm nearing the point of introducing her into the comic and I just didn't feel the old design did her justice...
So, back to the drawing board :D, and: Meet Kimur 2.0.

Here's the old design. Let me know if you like this one better, or the previous one :D.

Both designs are very interesting, and I really like the other one. But I think that this one is WAY more interesting, that's probably one of the things that I love most about your comic, every character is SO unique, not only in personality, but also in the way they look. She has way more personality in this design than in the other and looks more mature.

I can't way to see her in the comic, is such a pitty there's just one update per week, but I can totally understand it, is obviously a lot of work.

I like this design better than the old one. She looks more mature in this version.

Ah good! She is supposed to be about Neva's age, just a few years younger, so that's a good thing :D

Nice! I understand the want for diversity in body types, but if you want her shorter and a little thicker then her head in this shot is a little too big for the body choice. It makes her appear much shorter in terms of leaning toward midget. A simple scaling would fix that in like ten seconds XDD. A head is roughly about half the width of the shoulders. I love your drawing though :D! Can't wait for new pages! :love:

Without knowing any more about the character than this shot gives, I still say I like this design better. Partly, because my internal bias says "Yay! More diverse bodies!" I think, though, that I see more depth in her in this version - there's something about the details in the costume and her features that makes her more individual.
