Concept art: Female outfits & hair
I'm working on another digital fantasy painting and wanted to figure out the design for a female archer. I wanted to avoid the standard elvish-style outfit but still suggest that this is a fantasy world. I have a female template drawing on file to which I can add clothing and hair if I want to simply work up an outfit. This eliminates the need to constantly redraw a female body every time. Of course, if I'm trying to nail down characteristics like race/species, attitude and so forth, then I have to start from scratch, but the dress-up doll approach is a handy tool for stuff like this.
