I began work on my final main character, The Mer King, King Aquarius. He is the father of the Princess and the enemy of the villain. The King, like the villain appears in the book as a child, teen and adult. When he and the villain where kids they met, when they where teenagers they fell in love. The King chose a conventional, Mermaid bride to be his queen, leaving Veronica(villain) feeling heartbroken and betrayed.
As always I stared once again with hair styles as the facial features for my character have already been determined. Designing each character is becoming a quicker process each time. I sketched a number of hair styles for the King, most of them included beards as I thought it would add some nice detail to his character.
