Entry for the World Ends With You Contest.
Design inspired by the character art and color story of the new Square-Enix game. When working on this I felt that it was more of a fashion design based on the game, but it could easily be used as a NPC, or an alternate costume for the main female character, Shiki, since I used mostly her color scheme. I combined my own fashion sketch techniques with some of the stylistic features of Tetsuya Nomura's artwork. I, like Nomura did, also looked to the fashion style of the Shibuya district for my inspiration. I also chose to do all the rendering in photoshop, rather than my usual Marker because I felt it would better capture the graphic style of the game art. The original sketch was done with Copic multi-liners.
design and art by me!
