When designing the Princess’s face I again had a lot to go on. I knew from the previous character what sort of facial features she would have. I decided to just sketch some quick faces to get the ball rolling.
The Princess would have the same sort of eyes, nose and mouth as the villain character. I was a little on the fence what sort of hair style she would have. Do I give her long flowing hair that is generic to princess’s and mermaids or do I do something a little different and give her short hair?
After taking it into consideration I decided to give her long hair. Not to be stereotypical but to differentiate her from the villain character and make her seem more youthful as long hair is often representative of youth.
