Hey guys, as of late i've been drawing up images for what i imagine my character in Soul Eater to look like. Madame Murder is actually just an Alias for Imperial Madwin (My Soul Eater OC) and you'll find out why if you read the story just why she's called that.
Later on i might make a rough sketch of just how imagined Imperial to look like, but that's just a maybe. Just a foot note but i hope that you guys like my first real attempt at shading the monocle. It's a shame that i've been thinking of simply scraping the monocle as my character is female and a monocle isn't really feminine. But ah well. Even the best of authors go through numerous drafts before they get what they want.
As you can see by the Top Hat, i plan on having a 'Theme' for the OC. That theme being Red, Blue and Black. The way i see it, red and blue are more or less the colour equivalents of Madness and Bravery. And since my character is (I don't quite know how to describe her insanity. A Symbiotic one, i guess?) suffering from Madness but has guts and values friendship highly, i made the top hat reflect that. Plus, i just like Top Hats.
Its a future plot point might i add just how far she goes down the rabbit hole, so to speak, of madness in order to save her friends. Being brave enough to go insane, quite an interesting way of summarising the situation, isn't it?
The Monocle has been what i spent roughly 60 percent of my time on when drawing this, my first attempt at shading i am pretty happy with, and if you notice the edges are highlighted with red and blue.
All in all, i aimed to make her have a asymmetrical yet at the same time symmetrical appearance. She is a symmetrical opposite, is how i would describe her.
