[For the hiatus, I’m going to be posting a bunch of the development art I made for the series. It’ll be posted in the order it was made, leading up to the week the comic resumes]

{ORIGINAL COMMENTARY} I haven’t changed her proportions much since her conception, but I have changed her outfit and personality a lot since I drew her first.

I had a ton of trouble trying to get her markings just right. So few looked good to me, but I eventually found I felt comfortable with a sort of diamond theme to the black marks on her (along with her adorable chest heart one).

Originally I was going to go with an outfit that had some big neck-ware thing going on, but I couldn’t figure out how to make everything connect nicely. Instead, I went for a more simple robe thing that clicks together along her stomach. She’s got a shirt on below that. I wanted something that kind of split the difference between Trinity’s more naturalistic outfit and Ms Shepard’s more official look.

The patches on her shoulder marking her as being allied with both FA and FB were shifted into being little bandannas things she wraps around her arms. Since her arms are bare in the outfit, I wanted to add something to make them stand out a little more.

Gonna need to keep practicing this leg structure. But I’m very satisfied with how she looks. I’m still debating a bit on the Tecktrins wings, but I like this well enough for now.

As for her personality, she’s usually pretty grump or tired…
OF PEOPLE’S NONSENSE, THAT IS.

{NEW COMMENTARY} As you can tell by her actual appearance in the comic, I dropped the arm bands; ironically I felt that made her design too busy.

Since… another character is going to fill the grump role, I’ve changed Luca into being more exasperated with everything going on.

I’m probably going to add more to her coat down the line, but we’ll see.
