WIP Valyn di Metissi v.2 by NetheneKhthon WIP Valyn di Metissi v.2 by NetheneKhthon
After drawing the first version of Valyn, I realized that I needed a better understanding of how she was going to look. I did a lot of sketches of guns (not that you can tell here...) and finally settled on the costume you see here through lots of research. She's set in a steampunkish war-torn world.

One major issue I realized after scanning is that Valyn is meant to be primarily left handed, so it's reasonable that I drew her holster on her right hip. BUT Valyn is technically ambidextrous, in that she is better at shooting with her right hand. If I move the holster to her left hip, it will leave the frame of the picture almost completely. Will she look funny without it?

I also agonized over whether or not to use the loose sleeves of the great leather duster. Then I realized: I gave her thigh boots and pigtails, sweeping sleeves aren't going to hurt her image.

Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thats Great!
But the holster would fit a little better being a little more deeper then it is. ;)
