Last week also marked my return to life drawing class for the first time in quite a while. I was a little rusty at first, but I eventually turned out something decent.

After the hard surface stuff, I decided to go back to redesigning Xenogears characters, moving on from Fei to Elly Van Houten, the female protagonist from the game.

Some studies of ladies I thought would be a good match for Elly's face and hair.
