A few months ago I drew this doodle to test out some new markers I bought. A cute witch in a riding poncho. She became my go-to doodle character. The more I drew her and bought about her, the more she developed a personality. As her personality changed, I felt the need to try out different styles for her. I've done a lot of doodles of this Poncho Witch and she finally has a name, or at least a first name: Linaria! I am really bad at naming things so I'm glad I finally have something else to call her besides "Poncho Witch" though I'm not totally abandoning that title.
Anyways, here are some of my sketches of Linaria (Lin for short)
I played around with lots of different looks and I'm sure she'll continue to evolve a bit, but I think below is the design I like the best.
As I drew her, a story started playing out in my head and I hope I can develop that story into a webcomic. It will be an interesting challenge for me and I dunno, maybe some other people will enjoy it as well.
Linaria, the Poncho Witch. :)
