@XabioArts #characterdesign#princessjasmine#redesign#conceptart Screenshots are @dangel0wallace . This was NEVER meant to be a finished sketch, I wanted to just block in some shapes so I could design it in photoshop later but I was having fun. . This is the first design pass so there's room for improvement but here's what I tried to include: . A hijab. Idk why, Jasmine isn't Muslim but she's the closest thing to representing Muslims that I know of. My sister wears a hijab and to a lot of people we meet, the hijab is a symbol of terrorism to them. I hope a little more "Islamic representation" might help to counteract that unfortunate stigma. . The hijab is in a flowing bell shape just like jasmine's hair. It falls to one side and swoops around like Jasmine's ponytail thing. . The direction of the hijab swoop coming down helps guide your eye down her body and let's it continue down the curve of the hips and legs. . The upper body is meant to be closely related to the original Jasmine with the blue bra thing but I didn't want to show her belly since it's armor. So I incorporated the bra shape into the design of her shirt. .
The belly part will be like leather or something so that it will be close to her skin color so the overall colors go blue, brown, blue just like the bra, stomach, and pants of original jasmine. . When you squint and blur your eyes you should still be able to tell its jasmine bc of the colors and overall shapes. . 1. It's an iconic jasmine pose. . 2. This version doesn't show skin but I still wanted it to look femanine and attractive. Esp since drawings of attractive girls get way more likes on instagram. . 3. I wanted to keep the pants together bc they are hard to draw spread out but also her pants kind of mesh into one blobby shape for the whole film so that might be another thing that says it's jasmine and not some other girl person. .
I'm thinking of adding some henna and Indian jewelry to the final colored design since those are decorative details from India where Aladdin sort of takes place. #art#drawing#sketch#anime#animeart#illustration#drawinghelp#help#arthelp#poses#disney#disneyart#Aladdin
