Wanna start a project for my art portfolio based on the book: Binti
I think the story is very interesting and I'll see if I have the skills to illustrate the characters and environments.

Here are some fun sketches of Binti and Okwu to get me started ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

#2

sketching what the astrolabe which in this world, is an electronic device to communicate, also contain their ownerโ€™s entire past, possible futures, and family history. They act as a passport or government identification.

This kinda looks like an apple watch currently... don't know if I like that... 
I do like the idea of it being detachable?? It's a very important device, so maybe it's a better design if it is embedded in the person. haha

#3

idk what I'm doinggg hahaha

#4

Astrolabe shop?? 
I wanted it to feel like the place where they fix watches or phones

#5

More sketching

the notepad things are super inspired by the "remarkable 2" xD and the cube is the "edan" a mysterious metal object carried by Binti as a lucky charm

trying to figure out Binti's design. I really liked my first sketch of her on update #1

How to draw a character consistently? help ples xD

#7

exploring Binti's look.. She's a Himba and is trying to preserve her culture... not sure how that would look in a scifi world.

These are the two that I kinda like.

loveee her new fit!!

#8

more of a modern fit xD
i like it but it doesn't fit the character.

i think C fits the character best, gonna go with that

#9

more sketching and some poses

Wonder what other poses I should do.. she's not really a fighter so no dynamic poses? hmhmhm

#10

Binti's otjize container

Kinda like it without the pattern... but I don't hate it if it does.
