Well, making her into a white walker WAS the idea. I don't like the "frozen wood" design of the TV show much, so I wanted to try my own version. But the veins do seem to stand out too much at "print" size...

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

I really like the middle one, it has all the best bits of both versions. The lighter strokes on the eyelashes are a really good addition.
I think the veins will work better if they're paler and more saturated, a green or purple colour works best for me. At the moment it looks more like her skin is cracking, like porcelain about to shatter (which would also work as a different idea! :))

well lucky me I had the veins on two layers, one of which is blurrier and bluer, so here's a 4th option.



I guess I will have to think on this one some more :P

I prefer this version, but without the blue eyes, but i guess that's part of the character?

one thing i notice, and more since you added the veins, is that her neck goes straight forward. There's not indentation, not the right word to describe it, but i can't think of the right one, but you know where the neck meets the decollete? It looks quite straight into her chest area.

:blink: You do watch GoT right? Sansa doesn't have glowy blue eyes, but the white walkers have very blue eyes. Not necessarily glowy, but I wanted to add to the unreal feeling. :)

About the neck, I get what you mean. Not sure I'll change it though. The ref doesn't have very clear structures either and what's there kind of ended up hidden by that "string" above her necklace, and her hair... But yeah, it would probably benefit from a bit more shading... :) I think I'll have to sleep on it ;)

never seen it, don't ever intend to either. I'm just not into that kind of thing really and I can't invest any time in such a huge series anymore, I just lose interest and patience. So annoying sometimes.
