Clothing design and functionality
Giving my character sporting accessories contrasts nicely with her leather jacket. I give her studs under her shoes and some protection on her trousers, to make her hoverboard ride more comfortable. The knee pads, gloves and her mask represent the peak of her personal technology: I paint them red to draw attention to this fact, but don’t overdo their design.
Tattoos with a difference
Her tattoos are elements that evoke a little mischievous spirit. They depict geometric representation and symbols. I like to think that this particular sci-fi future world has its basis in mathematics. I use colours to indicate the character’s playful spirit. The red mark on her forehead hints at a cosmopolitan state of mind and society in general.
