Kiwi by Artipelago Kiwi by Artipelago
UPDATE: retouched the face. And a little WIP process chart:

For the :iconartgermination: Mascot Design challenge. I (re)introduce my OC Kiwi. I did more of redesign. *u*

Though she's named Kiwi now, she actually has been around long before my deviantArt days. Back in middle school(I think), she remained a nameless character confined to pencil and paper, and was without the whole kiwifruit motif. But she was green haired. It was only until I arrived onto deviantArt where that had changed. Like many on deviantart, after seeing Artgerm's work with Pepper, I was heavily inspired to do something more with her. So, I thought it would be "clever" to name her in the same way:roll:. Hence Kiwi, since it worked with the green color in her design and...I simply like kiwifruits..they're sweet.^u^
But in general, I liked studying from different sources such as manga, comics, television anime & cartoons, videogames,and famous deviantArtists and artists worldwide, and incorporate what I loved about them into Kiwi somehow.


So now, I continue to experiment with styles with her, and I think she represents that aspect of my art.:)
I would still like to think that she's still that nameless female character I created way back when. That way she could have any identity.:D

But honestly, I'm terrible at naming things :iconfacepalmplz:

The detail is phenomenal, the design of her clothes is cool, and her eyes are like emeralds glistening in the light. She is absolutely beautiful.
