4 Seasons of Dunhuang

This is a character design assignment I created for one of my illustration classes in my sophomore year. I created 5 characters, 4 seasons, and 1 magical child inspired by Chinese relics and Dunhuang, aka Magao caves with Buddhist Murals.

Below is my work process for the character design, from thumbnails, and silhouettes to character lineup and finished artwork.
