I dug up some really old character concepts and decided to revisit them. Here's Alexis, and his sister Athanais will be done at... some point.
It was nice to do a pinup again and play around with cell shading/simpler shading anyway. Also, ridiculous oriental fantasy trash clothes, big unnatural hair, and a hazy background. And a blue-teal-violet palette. This image is basically a long stream of indulgences. I'm thinking for Athanais I'd do sunset colors instead.
Title is from Wine Red by the Hush Sound.
Clothes are basically a rule 63 of two common fanservice tropes: bedlah babe/nubile savage. Which are both entirely fantasy, but fun to toy with and draw.
