this is Merlin's design. tried to show emotion in his actions like casting magic and whatnot. tried to make him look peaceful, yet powerful.
For the queen's design, I was more or less skeptical on what I wanted her to look like. The dress feels iconic, like thats what a queen would wear. But on the second page, I wanted to make her outfit more active like she has to run around the castle doing her duties and whatnot. The page is really rough, and I'll post some reference of what I want to queen to look like.
Also Lim, for the grayscale, do you want me to paint over these in photoshop or just make thumbnail characters in photoshop?
face reference, sorta. the first lady is from Kingdom of Heaven and is like what I want the queen to look like because she's really stressed and stern.
