Asar von Prehn, hands down my favourite side-character in Traces of Chaos. I love all of them, but I love von Prehn most.
Too bad I have such a tough time drawing her. Here I tried to work out the kinks in the design of General von Prehn’s prosthestic exoskeleton and the uniform she tends to wear over it. Not quite satisfied with it yet; that stuff is hard to design, especially since their world’s technology is a bit better than what we have today.
But I’m very happy with her face – it’s hard to make a character’s face look realistic old but not cartoony-silly old. It appears the trick (for me) is to design the younger version first and then approximate the aging process.
