Character Design: Quirky Magical Girl by vmbui Character Design: Quirky Magical Girl by vmbui
From June 2010

One of three commissions for Animation Rigs. I had so much freedom with these. The client simply wanted three female characters with relatively simple, yet distinctive designs.

This lady is a Quirky Magical Girl. :)

More details & process animation here.

Drawn with a Wacom Intuos4 tablet, Paint Tool SAI & Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Looks great!

I don't know if this was intentional on your part, but with that hairstyle and color she has a great resemblance to Haman Karn from Zeta Gundam.

Oh wait. I thought the right one was like an older drawing and the left one was revamped. But I guess the right one was the sketch? My bad ;^;

I could definitely see a show based on a girl like this going thru an adventure with an introvert girl/boy or group of kids. :)

and then the introvert girl/boy would fall in love with her with all of her dazzling personality, but she has to sadly return to her magical world and there is much heartbreak.

But then the sadness is only one step on her journey, as the "Quirky Magical Girl" finds a new person to help them grow and become more confident with themselves.

See? There ya go. Already a complete franchise in a bottle. ;)

Then you'd have people at NYCC or any other major Con dressed up as her... stationary.. coloring books... Children's books even... Greetings cards for all occasions... then in 5-10years time is the live-action movie that dwarfs everything.

Kind of like how Raven is the bad-ass supermodel action hero of your gallery, "Magic Girl" is the lighter side. It's like this just creates it's own empire. heh
