I can’t believe I forgot to mention this but Desire and Despair are twins.
I don’t want to talk about the reference for Despair. We will leave it at I think my boyfriend thinks I have a weird fetish now.
Funny enough I didn’t really know what I was going to do for this illustration. I had gathered some photo reference and found a pose I thought was perfect for her character. I couldn’t think of anything past that. Like most problems in life if you just sleep on it for a night your sub-conscience will figure it out.
The next day I woke up, made my coffee, sat at the drafting table and started going at it. The rats I felt where perfect for her frame. She is often depicted with rats throughout the series.
Her realm is actually a foggy room filled with mirrors. Instead of incorporating that I put her on the floor looking up at her mirrors.
